Sorry to admit this was my first reading of P&P. Very entertaining, particularly the last third. Lady Catherine de Bourgh…what a piece of work! 😂
I highly recommend the audiobook version narrated by Rosamund Pike.

There are many good quotes about #happiness in Pride and Prejudice, but this one, when Elizabeth effectively says “Suck it! I‘m going to do what makes me happy!” to Lady Catherine, is my favorite. 😉

“I am only resolved to act in that manner, which will, in my own opinion, constitute my happiness, without reference to you, or to any person so wholly unconnected with me.”

Ruthiella I LOVE it when Lizzie takes Lady Catherine DOWN! 6mo

It‘s difficult to think of today‘s prompt & not pine for how England lost out as Lady Catherine de Bourgh never got a chance to learn music & share her #musical abilities.🥺

“I must have my share in the conversation if you are speaking of music. There are few people in England, I suppose who have more true enjoyment of music than myself, or a better natural taste. If I had ever learnt, I should have been a great proficient.”

LiteraryinLawrence She is such a fantastic character. 6mo

“What are men to rocks and mountains? Oh! what hours of transport we shall spend! And when we do return, it shall not be like other travellers, without being able to give one accurate idea of any thing. We will know where we have gone—we will recollect what we have seen. Lakes, mountains, and rivers shall not be jumbled together in our imaginations….”

When I hear #mountains,⛰I can‘t help but think of Elizabeth‘s quote in P & P.

For today‘s #vanity prompt, I gotta go with my girl, Mary B.💐🎤💙

“Vanity and pride are different things, though the words are often used synonymously. A person may be proud without being vain. Pride relates more to our opinion of ourselves, vanity to what we would have others think of us.”

Mary Bennet, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

So I just finished Pride and Prejudice the other day. First time I've ever read it and I was excited to watch the movie. .. but I feel the movie is already so different then the book after watching just the trailer.

I have almost no desire to watch it. What are your thoughts?

LiteraryinLawrence That‘s why I swear by the 1995 BBC miniseries of Pride and Prejudice. It stars Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth. It follows the book really closely, and I think you would find that version holds up to what you read! But people do have strong feelings about the movie and the miniseries, so don‘t just take my word for it! 10mo
LoverOfLearning @LiteraryinLititz oh okay I'm going to see if I can find that trailer now! Thanks 10mo
LoverOfLearning @LiteraryinLititz yes, definitely an improvement already! I'll have to see if I can find the movie so I can watch that version. Thank you. 10mo
peanutnine The movie is good, but they cut a lot out. I agree with @LiteraryinLititz the BBC miniseries follows the book much better. I believe it is on hulu right now 10mo

I'm having trouble rating this book.

I understand why this story was so highly recommended but today's mindset on marriage is so different it seems. The novel was questioning yet idolozining marriage based on short engagements. I appreciated Elizabeth being apprehensive and outspoken and I appreciate Mr. Bennett informing Elizabeth that her choice to be married to Mr. Darcy be based on if she is his equal. It was a good read.

Iffy ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4/5 stars

I was quickly transported to the world of Elizabeth Bennet through Jane Austen‘s witty, captivating, and romantic writing. Her creation of the characters was simultaneously relatable while also leaving me groaning in all the right places. A true page turner with a slow burn.

Another great book detailing the nature of humans and how love is such an ambiguous, yet to develop and complex being. The title reflects effortlessly into its protagonists. I enjoyed the depth each character had with their own struggles and thoughts regarding any given situation. I really enjoyed how differently interpreted and truly situational and circumstantial love and hate can be. Awesome book :)

I can't let the #Pemberlittens Pride and Prejudice months finish without posting this moment of me visiting the Jane Austen museum in Bath and taking a picture with Mr Darcy.

The museum more than about Jane Austen was about the love for Colin Firth as Darcy and has lots of costumes that you can try on(like many museums in Bath).So if like me you don't have any feeling of embarrassment add Bath to your holiday wishlist after Coronavirus is over!

I've lost count of the number of times I've read this - it used to be my first read of every summer break 😍. I loved doing the buddy read with the #Pemberlittens and reading everyone's reactions to the chapters! I am still terrible at chapter-a-days, but I tried 🤷‍♀️. Looking forward to some adaptations this month!

#PemberLittens

As Litsy doesn‘t really support reread reviews, I‘m posting under a different version. Pride and Prejudice has long been my favorite book 💙 & it remains firmly there. I read it annually, it‘s my refuge & my literary comfort food. This was my first time reading it a #ChapterADay & I loved it as it made me slow down & see more in each chapter. Also coming up with memes & then haikus daily gave me another way of looking at it. ⬇️

DebinHawaii ...Although I own a good dozen copies, my Kindle was my main source for my daily chapter this round. These are some of the other copies & formats that gave me inspiration along the way & the bottom right are two new additions to my P&P collection I ordered during our read. Thanks to our host Jenni for making it so fun. 1y

Every time I re-read a book something new sticks out to me. This time Lydia irritated me a lot more, and Mary seemed like a person I‘d like to know better.

It's very hard to review a book that I've read so many times,I just can say that I don't even know how many times I read it and I don't get tired of it.The intelligent dialogues, the portrait and criticism of certain society rules and the way different personalities see love and how it affects their relationship's dynamics (which shockingly hasn't changed much) makes it a book that is surprisingly easy to read for a work that it's so insightful

Chapter 51: When I was a bratty little sister of 16 or 17, my parents found a 6-pack of beer under my bed while I was out and left it prominently placed on the kitchen table, to shame me, I suppose. So I put it in the fridge and went on with my day. There is a little part of me that loves Lydia in this chapter. Why change now and pretend to feel bad? 🤣

Chapter 46, read on a brewery patio while on vacation. So. . . Austin suggests gratitude and esteem can bring on love after initial dislike. She presents the same idea in Sense and Sensibility. This has never been the case for me. If there is no chemistry in the first 30 minutes of acquaintance, for me, there will never be romantic attraction although there could be friendship. What do you all think? #pemberlittens #chapteraday

Two of my favorite quotes from this chapter. Austen really let her humor have free reign in this one! #pemberlittens

batsy Another fave: "He then went away, and Miss Bingley was left to all the satisfaction of having forced him to say what gave no one any pain but herself." I really don't like her, but that never fails to give me a stab of pain on her behalf. Austen is so perceptive. 1y

Chapters 37-42. Elizabeth leaves Hunsford, reunites with her family, catches Jane up on all the tea (except about Bingley), the militia packs up & leaves Meryton, Lydia's world is ruined- then restored when she gets an invite to Brighton, the Gardiners drop their children with Aunt Jane, & Elizabeth is off with the Gardiners on a shortened tour, which now includes Pemberley ❤ So looking forward to the next few chapters!#pemberlittens #chapteraday

EMBARRASSING CONFESSION TIME: I have read P&P several times, and each time I notice something new. This time I am realizing that, apart from a love of academics that saved me from total stupidity and ignorance, I was Lydia at 15. I recognize those desperate efforts to party whenever possible and place myself around older men! It burns, it burns!
