February 13th, 2014
A romantic classic, Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice tells the star-crossed love story of strong-willed Elizabeth Bennett and Elegant, proud Mr. Darcy. Beautifully written and composed, this classic is sure to make you laugh, cry and soar with thoughts of romance. Elizabeth Bennett is the epitomizes the idea of a strong woman in old England and Mr. Darcy represents the misunderstood gentleman. This novel is definitely the easiest classic to read and I would recommend to anyone whom loves a good story. Special note: any high school students that need to pick a book for a independent novel study, this is a fantastic choice!!!
