    Pride and prejudice is the story about a family that lives in the 18th - 19th century. It's about five unmarried daughters (Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Lydia and Kitty) and their life looking for someone to marry them. When suddenly a rich family comes living in the neighbourhood, everybody gets excited and wants to meet them. At the ball they get to meet Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bingley, the two men who moved to the neighbourhood. At first sight Mr. Darcy seems like a selfish, proud and arrogant man who do Pride and prejudice is the story about a family that lives in the 18th - 19th century. It's about five unmarried daughters (Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Lydia and Kitty) and their life looking for someone to marry them. When suddenly a rich family comes living in the neighbourhood, everybody gets excited and wants to meet them. At the ball they get to meet Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bingley, the two men who moved to the neighbourhood. At first sight Mr. Darcy seems like a selfish, proud and arrogant man who doesn't like the people from the village. But once Elizabeth starts to know him better, she sees that behind that proud, disrespectful man, a charming handsome landlord is hiding. Mr. Bingley on the other hand seems like a very nice and attractive man who falls in love with Jane from the moment he meets her. The story tells us about the life in that century, their feelings of shame they have to each other and about their expectations in life. It's a story filled with love, romance, lies and social classes. The book is written in a good readable, clear writing. The chapters are divided in almost finished parts, every part is about something different, so one chapter doesn't overflow in the next one. But the book does make one whole. I would recommend this book because it is an interesting story and I could read it over and over again. But I wouldn't recommend it to everybody, only to the people who are already a bit experienced in English reading. I also wouldn't recommend it to the persons who love action in the books they read, because it doesn't involve much action.

 ’The Classics’ has been always a charming title, reading them, I guess, makes you an intellectual reader! Since I read Jane Eyre (Oxford bookworms library edition) in 2011, I’ve really enjoyed listening to audio books while reading them in the same time; it creates an atmosphere that only a reader could understand. The feeling that you are living, whilst reading, in the era when the novel was written. Four years later, my sister started her English language course in the UK and I recommend her to buy the full Oxford bookworms library series and I found my self-eager to read them all. 
 Pride and Prejudice was the beginning, in 8 days despite my busyness I made it and read a book from cover to cover within one week, Marvelous! I don’t need to talk about the story, assuming that you already know it :), the only thing that I want to discuss in this review is the feminist voice through Jane’s writing; women stereotyping, their independency facing culture and society traditions etc. When Jane and Elizabeth were discussing Mr. Bingly’s sudden disappearance, the following lines have captivated my attention and made me notice how Austen was writing with a Women voice neither a writer nor a novelist only: 
 Jane: Women often imagine admiration means more than it really does 'And men want that to happen' said Elizabeth 'I prefer to believe that I was mistaken in thinking he cared for me' replied Jane 
 Checking Austen’s Wikipedia page, and knowing that she died young, single and has established a remarkable position in English literature, makes me think of Jane as a women not only as a writer, what she wanted to say and do, what were her permanent concerns and so on. 
 Luckily I am currently living in the UK, and I have the chance to visit two Jane Austen’s museums ;). Moreover, I have the opportunity to visit her house and several locations that her novels took place in. Finally, I hope you enjoy watching this documentary about her: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUVw3... Cheers ;)

    I really liked and enjoyed reading the book very much. My only regret was not buying the original one, as I wanted to read more of the story. Nonetheless, it was beautifully written and I would gladly read it again without a doubt.

    This story is about a family in Georgian England. Their household consists of Mr. – and Mrs. Bennet and their five daughters - Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Kitty and Lydia. They were raised with the purpose of marrying a rich man that can support the family. They are not from the upper class, and their house in Hertfordshire will be inherited by a distant cousin if Mr. Bennet dies.

Then the wealthy bachelor Mr. Bingley and his best friend Mr. Darcy arrive in town to spend the summer in a mansion nearby their property, the shy and beautiful Jane falls in love with Mr. Bingley, and Lizzie finds Mr. Darcy a snobbish, smug and proud man, and she swears to loathe him forever. This is the beginning of their love story. I really like the storyline and the plot because I really like romance stories and it is a worldwide known/loved book for a reason. What I don’t like though is the way it’s written in this version because it seems rather unnatural to me. For example in the book when Mr. or Mrs. Bennet address each other they don’t use pet names or their first names either which I for one think is kind of weird and creepy because their married but they address each other by their surname. And I think that because of the way it’s written (which bothers me quite a lot), the story is kind or ruined and rather unsatisfying in my eyes.

    Lo encontré de casualidad en mi biblioteca, no recuerdo cómo lo conseguí la verdad. Justo había terminado de ver la peli y dije voy a leer algo. Dije: Es mi oportunidad. *.* La verdad que no sé si es una versión un poco resumida del original o qué. pero me gustó bastante.

    Absolutely terrible, I will need to read the original. This was just a a narrative with no detail whatsoever. You can’t reduce a book from 280 pages to 100 pages and expect it to be good.

    How hard it has to be to beat one's pride to accept they were wrong? How hard can one regret their behaviour against other because of prejudice? What all it takes for one to cause all above?

How hard can one regret their behaviour against other because of prejudice? What all it takes for one to cause all above? Pride and Prejudice is one of the classic books that stayed highly popular throughout centuries. It was written by well known English writer, Jane Austen. In this novel she perfectly described the flaws of prejudicing. The Bennet's girls are all well grown and pretty as a picture, though some might not be as bright, and everyone is expecting them to marry some handsome and important man. The story starts when Mr. Bingley rents a house in Bennets' neighbourhood. He brings his quiet and dogmatic friend, Mr. Darcy with him. Soon, everyone start to dislike him because of his arrogant manners, so different from Mr. Bingley's. The climax comes when one of the Bennet daughters, Lydia decided to run away with officer Wickham. All shame seems to be on Darcy, but be ready for a real plot twist. I enjoyed this book because of its imagery used, as well as the writer brought me to understanding society and its thinking in 19th century. There was nearly nothing I disliked about this book, maybe that some parts were too complicated and long. Basically, this book is one of the gifts to mankind and its really worth reading it. I would recommend it to everyone who enjoys novels from 19 century, and everyone who likes the calm romance and witty thinking. Though, I don't recommend this book to anyone who finds pleasure in 'over-sugared' novels and people not willing to understand past opinions and manners.

    First reading : I have decided to read this book because of two things : 1 .I need a book to read for my book report 2. most importantly I have read a lot of reviews (on the original book not this one) that are really different, some were saying it was one of the good books out there and some were saying how much of nonsense is this novel and its only about 5 girls wanting to get married.

When I started reading this novel, I cleared my mind and promised that I would judge it with my own opinion and not with anyone's else so In the end, I enjoyed it and was always excited for my bus ride (AKA the only time ever I could read in) to read it. I like the characters and the writing style, the plot but I didn't see it as romantic that much ,even thought I suspected that have been caused by how the short the novel was (which is 120 pages) and it was suppose to be a 200 /300 -ish, I believe. Second reading : Same opinion as before, but this is a novel you wouldn't like to read twice.

    A creepy looking cover. I can't find the version I read which was a parallel text Chinese/English edition, published 1995 for use only in the People's Republic of China. Since I can't read/speak/write Chinese it was a bit of a pointless read, but I did have fun trying to match up the characters with the English.

    The moment she first met him, she noticed his pride, his sense of superiority, and his selfish disdain for the feelings of others. He is the last man in the world whom she could ever be persuaded to marry. And so Elizabeth rejects the proud Mr.Darcy. Can nothing overcome her prejudice against him? And what of the other Bennet girls. Their fortunes, and misfortunes, in the business of getting husbands.

    I was actually expecting a little more out of this book considering Pride and Prejudice is a very talked about story. It may be because this is not the original version, and if this is so, I reserve my real rating for the time when I read through the real deal. This version is very short and causes every occurance seems to blend into the next.

    I love the way Jane Austen deals with the social relations that are subject to transformation when the society is moving from a strictly feudalist system to a more liberal way of thinking and living (the dawn of capitalism).
