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.

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. :)

Perhaps this is surprising, but this is actually my first truly finished Jane Austen novel. (Sorry Ms. Osick, I never finished Sense & Sensibility in the 10th grade.) I knew the plot line quite well for this novel, which made it a pleasant and easy read while crocheting on planes, etc. I guess I can understand why this is such a perennial favorite for so many, but I can’t say I quite get the obsession. I didn’t feel a lot of attachment to Elizabeth or Darcy. I thought Jane and Bingley were more sympathetic characters, though Bingley loses points for having this affections and attentions so easily diverted by a friend. I wonder if this book is one of those cases where people feel so much devotion to it because of nostalgia, having first read it when they were younger. Not that there is anything wrong with that! I just think I missed the Jane Austen bandwagon.
