Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Book Review: Pride and Prejudice

To say that Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite books, is an understatement! As I said before when I shared my review on Emma , I read it a long time ago when I was in high school and didn’t remember a thing.

Therefore, I decided to give it another go! It was a wonderful experience since I literally grew up admiring Elizabeth Bennet and her strong mind. However, I’m so much more mature now than when I first read it and I could perceive things differently.

I believe this is what the magic of rereading is. You get to experience everything a second time but from a different perspective.

This time around, I could appreciate how prejudiced Elizabeth was against poor Mr. Darcy. Although he was a snobbish asshole sometimes, I could totally see him for what he was. Just a shy guy!

Favorite Adaptation: Pride and Prejudice by Joe Wright

I must admit that the Joe Wright version is not precisely loyal to the book, but it’s still my favorite adaptation. I think the characters are very well portrayed by the amazing cast.

Moreover, this movie was my favorite when I was only 11 years old. Now, I’m turning 25 and it’s still my go to movie when I’m feeling nostalgic or just want to feel good.

Success! You're on the list.
