Waterstones Says

Impeccably crafted in flawless prose, the delightfully witty courtship of Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy is brimming with Austen's characteristic playfulness and comic irony. 

One of the BBC's '100 Novels That Shaped Our World'

'The best-loved book by our best-loved novelist' Independent

With its 'light and bright and sparkling' dialogue, its romantic denouement and its lively heroine, Pride and Prejudice is Jane Austen's most perennially popular novel. The love story of Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy, who misjudge, then challenge and change each other, is also a novel about the search for happiness and self- knowledge in a world of strict social rules, where a woman must marry well to survive.

Edited with an introduction and notes by VIVIEN JONES

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
