After being on my tbr for years, I have finally read this book. And I loved it! I thought it was great! I guess I’ve brought my rating down a little because I was waiting for it to be the exceptional piece of literature people claim it to be, but I found myself wanting more out of it. Regardless, I will definitely be reading more Austen in the future.

Jane Austen is one of my absolute favorite classic authors. However, I will say that if you do not like wordiness or run-on sentences, you're not going to like it.

I liked Jane Austen's writing style. The story develops nicely and development of the characters is well done.

One of my personal favorite books!

The plot sounds very simple and to some degree even cliche, but it's actually a very unique story and very enjoyable. The characters have personalities and the story is simple and fun. It even made me almost cry at one point. And I really enjoyed the relationship between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy.

Highly recommend it to anyone who likes romance and drama, as well as really nicely written characters. Austen's style of writing is really beautiful and fun, which just adds to how great this book is. Looking forward to reading more of her works. :)

My first Austen! To be truthful, after I put it down for a bit and then came back, I had to muster up the conviction to keep myself on task in order to finish this. Between the pace and the language, I wasn't exactly glued to the book, though as someone who likes to annotate, I do appreciate Austen's careful word choice. And while I was already familiar with the main plot from Joe Wright's 2005 adaptation and the 1995 miniseries (which I feel is comparatively overlooked--the longer total runtime makes the romance so delicious), reading this has really brought helpful supporting details to my awareness, like the class issues and Mr. and Mrs. Bennet's frankly horrible parenting.
