It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.
 
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 the folly of judging by first impressions and superbly evokes the friendships, gossip and snobberies of provincial middle-class life.

Part of a special set of 10 hardcover classics, designed by Coralie Bickford-Smith, that innovatively use foil and a special new binding material to create a highly collectable set.

Romantic, witty, acerbic and endlessly popular, Jane Austen’s novels are amongst the most revered, relevant and consistently readable novels in English Literature. Subtly different in tone, they range from the Gothic satire of Northanger Abbey, the drama of Pride and Prejudice and the razor-sharp observation of Emma to the poignancy and tenderness of Sense and SensibilityMansfield Park and Persuasion.

Having read Pride and Prejudice and Zombies I thought it was about time I read the original, although now I am honestly wondering why. This type of romantic period fiction is obviously not my thing as I found pretty... More
