Book Description

“It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” Jane Austen referred to Pride and Prejudice (1813), the earliest-written of her published novels, as her “darling Child” – and generations of readers have taken it to their heart ever since. The irresistible attraction she portrays, between the sparkily independent Elizabeth Bennet and the solemnly austere Mr. Darcy, counts among the greatest, most romantic – and funniest – love-stories ever told.
