I personally thought that this book is a great read for any young girl (or boy) who likes to read about troubles and annoyances at home, embarrassing families, and tricky romances. When I first started, it nearly put me to sleep with extremely long and overly complicated descriptions, but if you find a way to read past that, things quickly pick up. Though many may think of Jane Austen and think it rather boring with out even seeing the book, or even attempt to read it, you may be surprised by how attached you become to the characters and how the author instantly appeals to all of readers no matter who they are. The language, may be hard to understand at first, but if you just keep moving forward, you will begin to understand it a little better. Every teenage girl can relate with Elizabeth and Jane Bennet, because they deal with many of the problems that girls today deal with. They have parents that can be totally embarrassing at times, they have competition with siblings for attention, they deal with extraordinary feelings of love and hate and things that they cannot even begin to comprehend. Their parents do not always approve of who they like and they don’t always approve of who their parents have picked out for them. I think that this book was a definite page turner! Even if you don’t like this book the first time round, you should definitely give it a second go, because, in my opinion, this is a book that all women should read at least once in their lifetime! My favorite part of the whole story would have to be when Elizabeth stays with her friend, Charlotte Collins, and she visits Lady Catherine de Bourgh. I really think that it shows just how witty and real and courageous Elizabeth is by calling Lady Catherine on her outrageously rude behavior! Kudos to her! So, if you have nothing else in mind for your summer reading, try picking up Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, I guarantee you will be absolutely captivated!

I give this book  5 out of 5 bookmarks!
