Mr. and Mrs. Bennet have five daughters and Mrs. Bennet is desperate to get them all married so they won’t have to live on the streets after their father dies. A new family, the Bingleys, have moved to town. Mr. Bingley is a handsome man who takes an immediate liking to the eldest Bennet daughter, Jane. With Mr. Bingley, comes his closest friend, Mr. Darcy. A man who is insufferable and indignant to most. Elizabeth Bennet dislikes him the minute she meets him, over hearing the ignorant words he says. Mr. Darcy appears to not like Elizabeth, as well. But, they start to spend time together, considering how closely related their worlds are, and things start to change, at least for one of them.
At first, this book was very difficult for me to read, considering it was written in the 1800s. I almost gave up on it, not able to understand anything, nor was I enjoying it. But after really getting into it, and to where the story starts to kick off, I couldn’t put it down. I eventually started to understand the language, and the book as a whole. I fell in love with Mr. Darcy as well and the things he’d say. I empathize with him and how he is not a very sociable person and he seemed like a rude man at first. But, he was secretly a sweetheart. I also loved Elizabeth and how strong willed she was. Her sharp tongue and opinionated personality made her my favorite character by far. The entire romance between Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth was perfect. I feel like they were made for each other. I wish there was more to the book and their future so I can see how well they do as a married couple. I would recommend this to everyone who enjoys romance books because this book is basically the blueprint.
