A classic we all grow up knowing about. I loved it so much! The characters are complex, the writing style is amazing (witty, shady and funny).

I decided to read this book because I brought a poster with 100 books to read in your lifetime. This was the ninth book on the list. I also struggle with the classics, but I managed to like this one enough to not struggle. I did lose interest throughout with it, but I think that was just how it was written.  

This book is based on Elizabeth Bennet. This is her journey about the repercussions of hasty judgments and comes to appreciate the different between superficial goodness and actual goodness. Her father, Mr Bennet is the owner of the Longbourn estate in Hertfordshire and he has five daughters, but his property can only be passed to a male heir. His wife also lacks an inheritance, with his family faces becoming poor when he dies, he must marry off one of his daughters to a rich man who will get the estate and become man of the house. When Elizabeth meets Mr Darcy, she is repelled by his overbearing pride and prejudice towards her family, but Elizabeth needs a husband. So when Darcy’s friend, Mr Bingley forms an attachment to Jane, Elizabeth’s sister, Darcy becomes increasingly hard to avoid. Polite society will be turned upside down.  

For a book set in 1813, I love the Bennet daughters, they are all badass and I love the fact that they do not give a flying crap what anyone think. I love that they protect each other, and they bicker like crazy. I love the dry humour and the British humour in this book – it did sort of make me chuckle. I really appreciated Lizzy’s journey of learning to look at someone passed the first meeting and appearances. For an old book, I didn’t find it difficult to get into, as I know what it can be like to read old classic books and not have a scooby do with what’s going on.  

The only weakness I would say is that there were a few dry spells where I was skimming through to get to the next bit of Lizzy and Darcy together or just Darcy in general. I feel like I will appreciate this book more when I'm older and maybe on a re-read. But it was cute, and I love a good enemies to lovers.
