'This perfect indifference, and your pointed dislike, make it so delightfully absurd!'

Pride and Prejudice has delighted generations of readers with its unforgettable cast of characters, carefully choreographed plot, and a hugely entertaining view of the world and its absurdities. With the arrival of eligible young men in their neighbourhood, the lives of Mr and Mrs Bennet and their five daughters are turned inside out and menide down. Pride encounters prejudice, upward-mobility confronts social disdain, and quick-wittedness challenges sagacity, as misconceptions and
hasty judgements lead to heartache and scandal, but eventually to true understanding, self-knowledge, and love. In this supremely satisfying story, Jane Austen balances comedy with seriousness, and witty observation with profound insight. If Elizabeth Bennet returns again and again to her letter from Mr Darcy,
readers of the novel are drawn even more irresistibly by its captivating wisdom.

Portrait
Jane Austen, geb. 1775 in Steventon (Hampshire) als Tochter eines Landpfarrers, ist die Schöpferin bedeutender klassischer Werke der englischen Literatur. Nach Meinung ihres Bruders führte sie 'ein ereignisloses Leben'. Sie starb 41-jährig, unverheiratet und kinderlos, an Tuberkulose. Ihre literarische Welt war die des englischen Landadels, deren wohl kaschierte Abgründe sie mit feiner Ironie und Satire entlarvte. Psychologisches Feingefühl und eine lebendige Sprache machen ihre scheinbar konventionellen Liebesgeschichten zu einer spannenden Lektüre.

On the 200th Anniversary of Jane Austen's Death
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden am 18.07.2017

Exactly 200 years ago, the wonderful Jane Austen died on 18th July in 1817 at the age of 41. Reason enough to read one of her novels. So what about "Pride and Prejudice"?!

Reason enough to read one of her novels. So what about "Pride and Prejudice"?! This is one of my favourite novels. It is a love story of two people who fall in love with the second glance. Jane Austen still inspires her readers ? 200 years later. Why is that? I think the outstanding aspects are the fine, ironic narrative, the skillful witty dialogues as well as the sensitivity. A touch of nostalgia! But to this day, Austen's novels did not become less important. If I have inspired you by this, grab yourself a book by Jane and enjoy reading it. An unforgettable enjoyable reading experience! Or in the words of Mr Darcy: "In fact ? stimulating.".

A Classic Romance
von Lisa F. aus Berlin am 13.06.2017
Bewertet: Taschenbuch

?It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.? Pride and Prejudice is one of my favourite novels by Jane Austen and also one of my favourite romances. Every time I read... ?It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.? Pride and Prejudice is one of my favourite novels by Jane Austen and also one of my favourite romances. Every time I read it I fall in love with it all over again. Even though I always know what happens next I still enjoy this book very much. I love the very first sentence, the first scene with Mr and Mrs Bennet and I love the five, very different sisters Lizzie, Jane, Lydia, Kitty, and Mary. I love to read about Darcy's and Lizzie's first encounter and their bad first impressions of each other. It's also very fun every time around how Darcy slowly falls in love with Elizabeth, even though he tries to resist it. How Lizzie gets ruffled up about Darcy amuses me very much. The scene with Darcy's proposal is the most fun, in my opinion. I could go on and on about all the things that I love but it would be easier and quicker if you just read the book. Lizzie is charmingly snarky and sarcastic, also very quick witted. She is one of my favoutite heroines. At first, she is quick to judge and is opposed to change a preformed opinion of somebody or something. But Lizzie's character grows very much and watching that happening warms my heart with every reread. Her relationship with her dad is also very heartwarming. ?An unhappy alternative is before you, Elizabeth. From this day you must be a stranger to one of your parents. Your mother will never see you again if you do not marry Mr. Collins, and I will never see you again if you do.? Darcy is a stuck-up, arrogant snob - or so it seems. He actually has a big heart and cares very much about the people he loves and, damn, he has some killer romantic lines in this book. ?You are too generous to trifle with me. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes are unchanged; but one word from you will silence me on this subject for ever.? One thing that irks me, though, and that is except Mrs Bennet (I know, she only wants the best for her daughters but, man, that woman annoys the hell out of me!), is the characterization of Lydia. She is young and carefree and very immature but I don't like how Lydia is characterized so shallowly. I would've loved to see some character growth in her but maybe I'm just biased because in an adaptation of P&P Lydia grows so much and she is one of my favourite characters in that adaptation. P&P will forever be on of my favourite books of all time, I will treasure it and reread it whenever I can! ?I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look or the words, which laid the foundation. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.? 5 stars, 'cause what else?!

einfach fantastisch
von einer Kundin/einem Kunden aus Berlin am 04.09.2015
Bewertet: Buch (Taschenbuch)

Pride and Prejudice war mein erstes Buch, welches ich von Jane Austin gelesen habe. Ich habe ich sofort in ihren Schreibstil verliebt und auch in den starken weiblichen Charaktere. Die Gesichte ist relativ typisch für's 18.-19. Jahrhundert, aber nicht umsonst ein Klassiker. Einfach empfehlenswert.
