Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudiceby Jane Austen

Re-reading Pride and Prejudice again was like spending the bank holiday weekend with an old friend. I am not sure how many times I have read this particular book but I am amazed at what seems knew each time I do.

Whilst I freely admit to being a bit of an old romantic at times and I do enjoy some romance novels, there is more to Jane Austen’s stories than that. I love the language and the innocence of Jane Austen’s work, and these are best portrayed in Pride and Prejudice. 

Many thousand words have been written about Jane Austen’s work and I will not presume to add any more. All I will say is that I am pleased my initial curiosity in revisiting this book after having despised it so much at school, has been well rewarded.
