Pride and Prejudice (Revised)
Pride and Prejudice (Revised) | Jane Austen
Austen's most popular novel, the unforgettable story of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy Few have failed to be charmed by the witty and independent spirit of Elizabeth Bennet in Austen s beloved classic"Pride and Prejudice." When Elizabeth Bennet first meets eligible bachelor Fitzwilliam Darcy, she thinks him arrogant and conceited; he is indifferent to her good looks and lively mind. When she later discovers that Darcy has involved himself in the troubled relationship between his friend Bingley and her beloved sister Jane, she is determined to dislike him more than ever. In the sparkling comedy of manners that follows, Jane Austen shows us the folly of judging by first impressions and superbly evokes the friendships, gossip and snobberies of provincial middle-class life. This Penguin Classics edition, based on Austen's first edition, contains the original Penguin Classics introduction by Tony Tanner and an updated introduction and notes by Viven Jones. For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators."

I‘ve loved Pride and Prejudice my whole life thanks to @LiteraryinLawrence BUT I‘ve only seen the films. Deciphering Austen‘s language always feels hard to me, like Shakespeare tbh- beautiful but hard! So now I‘m trying audiobook thanks to the Libby app and thanks to my rowing machine and needing something to listen to while I exercise! Loving it so far ☺️ I think this is finally the year! #NewYearWhoDis #NYWD @SeaToSkyes @monalyisha

SeaToSkyes Yay!! 🥰🥰🥰 1w
BookDadGirlDad It took me 2 attempts to finally get through P&P. I was so glad I read it. A favorite classic. 1w

This book is so dear to me and I‘m not even a fan of romance.
I think what made me like this book so much is the fact that we see Lizzie and Darcy falling in love during the whole book, it wasn‘t something sudden. As much as I do love Lizzie, Darcy is my favorite fictional man, he is far from perfect, in fact, he has a lot of flaws, and I think that‘s exactly what makes him so real and amazing.

“If you will thank me,” he replied, “let it be for yourself alone. That the wish of giving happiness to you, might add force to the other inducements which led me on, I shall not attempt to deny. But your family owe me nothing. Much as I respect them, believe, I thought only of you.”

Per my last post, the P&P glasses were for my sister for her birthday in mid October. For various reasons we couldn‘t get together until Monday, when we went to lunch after I fulfilled my final out-processing task at the office.

She said she has a book of Austen inspired cocktail recipes for which they‘d be perfect! (The tea was for me.)

Elizabeth comes from a simple family from Meryton, when her mother sets up a line of eligible bachelors for Elizabeth and her sister Jane to Mary. Jane finds the one Mr Bingley the respectable and sensible man. While Elizabeth rejects a proposal and continues to wonder about the mysterious Mr Darcy.

Yes, I think the romance in my beloved Pride and Prejydice qualifies as a #SlowBurn but I think also a slow burn was my purchasing of this book after seeing @Crinoline_Laphroaig post about it a few weeks ago. I was going to immediately order it online & then I held off until last week when I was close to my local Barnes & Noble & they had it. It was worth the wait—it‘s gorgeous! So far I left all of the letters & goodies inside ⬇️

DebinHawaii … and I just took a few pictures where I found them. I plan to read it through soon and open items as I come across them in the pages. I also got the B&N sales clerk to buy a copy as they just got them in & she hadn‘t seen it yet. 🤗💜💜💜 Thank you @Crinoline_Laphroaig for posting about it. (edited) 4mo

A recent issue of the New Yorker had 2 Austen-adjacent articles. One on rationality, that used the examples of Lizzie Bennet & Charlotte Lucas: Charlotte exercised rational choice-making by marrying the safe Mr. Collins. Lizzie's initial dismissal of Mr. Darcy was not. Ha! Another article discussed the darker side of Britain's country houses, how many of them were funded by slavery, a fact that Austen touches on. #Pemberlittens @sprainedbrain

I am probably one of the few that could not stand this book. It just seemed to go on forever and it was hard to follow. It may have been that I was listening to this book while working so my attention was divided.

BookDadGirlDad I made it through this on my second attempt. Once I got beyond the first 75 pages or so, I really enjoyed it. Darcy is awesome. One of my favorite Literary characters. P&P seems to be one of those love it or hate it books. 6mo
Texreader I cannot read Jane Austen. I just don‘t care for her writing. But I do love the movie P&P and I really like the movie Emma. (edited) 6mo

332 p. Finally finished, and read it in Italian! So much drama just for getting married! I might be misjudging, I know I should evaluate the context of time in which the book was written, but it feels so outdated and I just could not ignore the pointlessness of the story. Would not read it again, would not recommend it.

1. Tbh the only book club I‘m in is the #pemberlittens and I joined it for the sole purpose of reading P&P. By far my favorite Austen work. No surprise there 😂
2. I‘m a huge vampire fan so anything to do with that genre. There‘s an ongoing series called Crave by Tracy Wolff that I‘d like to read with a book club.
