Pride and Prejudice

by Jane Austen

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen is my absolute favorite book. It is often referred to as a "domestic drama," but I feel that this does not do this book justice. A synopsis of the book does not truly communicate the depth of the characters or the quality of the writing, and can even sound trivial and silly, but trust me: This book is the best book I have read yet. The style of writing can be difficult and unwieldy for those unused to her style (Austen wrote this in the early 1800's!), but don't be discouraged! I give this book 5 chirps.

This is one of my favorite books. It takes a while to read because of the old English, but don't let that get you down! It's awesome!
