This book is one of my absolute favorites from childhood. Full of interesting historical facts, and beautifully written with immaculate language. Also wonderfully romantic! It might be difficult to follow for children under the age of 14 years, unless they are advanced readers. The story is also fairly slow-moving, so may be difficult for readers used to action-packed novels.
We thoroughly enjoyed the clean edited version of this book. I was pleasantly surprised to know that my daughter could read this book and not get pulled into the original version. Lessons to be learned from every character in the book. She enjoyed it even at her preteen age.
I read Pride and Prejudice after I watched the movie and loved both. I usually don’t like romantic novels but I enjoyed this one for it wasn’t over-the-top in drama. It also was very informational and historically accurate. The beginning of the book was slow, introducing characters and setting up the plotline, but as the story thickened, it became extremely interesting and hard to put down. Overall, I was extremely satisfied with this read and could easily pick up reading it again.
Pride and Prejudice is a favorite around here! I love that we have this cleaned up but unabridged version to offer our kids as they are ready for the full-length story.
This timeless classic is a book that every young person should read. The book is enjoyable, yes, but there are also myriad lessons to be learned from the characters. Each character is flawed, though some flaws are hard to see at first, and most people will be able to see themselves somewhere in this book.
The lovely young Bennet sisters, Jane and Elizabeth, are hoping to find their ideal husbands: men to bring them both love and financial security. When rich and handsome Charles Bingley moves into the neighborhood—and his rich and handsome friend Mr. Darcy comes for a visit—the sisters’ prospects look bright. However, while Mr. Bingley is instantly taken with Jane, Mr. Darcy is haughty and clear about his disdain for the Bennet family’s lack of station and decorum. After he rudely snubs Elizabeth at a party, it seems impossible that Elizabeth’s and Mr. Darcy’s first impressions of each other will ever soften into friendship—and certainly never love.
In this timeless classic, Jane Austen masterfully weaves the perfect blend of comedy, drama, and heartwarming family love. With delightful language and unforgettable characters, readers enter the enchanting Regency era where overcoming pride of station and prejudicial opinions of others is surprisingly relatable to today.
*Clean Language Version* This unabridged version has updated spelling. Several instances of taking the Lord’s name in vain have been removed.
