Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife" (1).
Set in 19th century England, Pride and Prejudice follows Elizabeth Bennet, along with her four sisters, through the trials and tribulations of marriage, family, and their own morals. The story starts when the rich and eligible Mr Bingley and his friend, Mr Darcy move into town. Jane Bennet, the eldest of the five sisters, instantly gets close to Mr Bingley while Elizabeth and Mr Darcy continuously bump heads with each other throughout the novel.
I enjoyed this book more than I enjoyed her other famous novel, Sense and Sensibility. It was fun to see the relationship between Elizabeth and Mr Darcy grow and develop over the course of the book. The whole dynamic of their relationship was my favorite part of this novel and they were probably my favorite characters. Elizabeth is funny and witty and she made me laugh a couple times.
