Pride and Prejudice

by Jane Austen

Pride and Prejudice is a classic story about love in the strangest of forms. Elizabeth Bennet, the second oldest of five sisters, is the daughter of a not-so-rich, goodnatured man. His wife, whose biggest dream is that her daughters will marry into fortune, hears of a handsome, wealthy young man who is visiting in town. Mr. Bingley, as he is called, agrees to attend a party held at the Bennets' estate. He and his friend, Mr. Darcy, are quite eye-grabbers because of their good looks. But they seem to be complete opposites! Mr. Bingley is well-mannered and kind, when Mr. Darcy is outright rude and discourteous. Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy feel great dislike for each other after the gathering, but after a while, Mr. Darcy begins to look at her in a new light... It's a wonderful story full of deceit, romance, and surprising twists. I recommend reading this novel--you will not be disappointed!

I absolutely LOVE this book!!!!!!

Heehee Mr Darcy luvs Lizzy, and Lizzy doesn't know what to do!!!!!

And Kitty runs away with Mr Wickham and Lizzy feels like it's partly her fault for not telling everybody about Mr Wickham.

And Mr Bingley Kiss Jane a lot, and Lizzy is happy for Jane because Jane loves Mr Bingley too!
