Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
It was difficult for me to rate this book. Because it is such a well loved classic, I felt that perhaps it should automatically be awarded 5 stars. I have always loved this story & am glad that I can finally claim having read it instead of just seeing it played out on film. If I had not watched the movie so many times, I possibly would have called this book outstanding, but I noticed while reading that it was almost like the story was just humming in the background, much as a movie you've seen so many times can be watched without you needing to pay much attention to it, yet you are still able to comprehend everything that is happening. I love Austen's wit & her light-hearted characters & stories and am anxious to read another of her books that I am less familiar with to see how it affects me. I really enjoyed this!
