This book is hard to understand if you have never read any books from this time period. The language is different and weird when compared with how we talk today. After you get through the language barrier, you realize how amazing this book is. The story fallows Elizabeth Bennett, a girl who believes in love, even though she is criticized for it. She watches as two of her sisters get married, the youngest to the dashing and deceiving Mr. Wickham, and the oldest to the man she loves. However, Mr. Bingley, her oldest sister’s husband, has a friend. Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth butt heads from the beginning. One would think that they despised each other. That is why it is such a surprise when Mr. Darcy pops the question. Elizabeth refuses of course, as he had not too long ago separated her sister from Mr. Bingley. Eventually, Mr. Darcy comes to his senses and he and Mr. Bingley return. They then both pop the question to the women they love. This time there is a pleasant answer from both women, who have come to love the men proposing to them. I really loved this book, and there isn’t much you can do to describe it. It is the ultimate love story, the one so many others are based on. I highly suggest you read this book, even though I practically told you everything that happens in it. I’ll end with one of my favorite parts of the book, and a demonstration of my favorite literary devise. “She is tolerable; but not handsome enough to tempt me.” –Mr. Darcy. Oh irony, how I love you.
