Review of Pride and Prejudice

The more I see of the world, the more I am dissatisfied with it

Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen

Novel: Pride and Prejudice

Genre: Classic, Regency

Miss Elizabeth Bennet, the second in the five daughters of the Bennet family was not such a great beauty as her elder sister Jane Bennet. When Lizzie’s mother finds that a wealthy man called Mr Bingley is to buy an estate in the country, she wishes to marry him to one of her daughters. To Mrs Bennet’s satisfaction Mr Bingley finds Jane admirable. And when Lizzie’s path crosses with Mr Darcy, (Mr Bingley’s friend and one of the wealthiest man) she finds him proud. Mr Darcy’s silence and pride form leads to several misconception between him and Elizabeth. Meanwhile, Elizabeth gets an offer to hand in marriage from her cousin Colin who would inherit her home after her father. when she refuses, Colin marries Lizzie’s friend, Charlotte. It was then George Wickham (ward of Mr Darcy’s father) enters the story. He fills Lizzie’s ear with some news of Mr Darcy and that turns her furious on him, raising her bad opinions against the friend of Mr Bingley.


Who does not yearn to read a Jane Austen novel? And, when it comes to Pride and Prejudice, I assure you to not to check your thoughts on reading it. The strong character of Elizabeth Bennet and the reserved manner of Mr Darcy would be sure to haul the readers to the story and it did to me as well. In a world which is filled with restrictions, Elizabeth Bennet would dare to exceed them.

If you are hidden in your own shell and hesitative on speaking your mind out, Elizabeth Bennet is a lady who you would like to look up to. Not only Elizabeth and Mr Darcy fascinated me, there are more such characters who would not let you shut the book. Jane Bennet’s sweet nature, Mr Bingley’s genuine comportment, Lydia Bennet’s adamant behaviour are some of the points for not regretting reading this. I have read all Jane Austen’s perfect novels and if someone asks me to choose one, I would not hesitate to name Pride and Prejudice. It deserves reading.
