I chose this book, because a lot of people enjoyed it and advised me to read it. Moreover, the name of this book drew my attention to it. At once I supposed that this story would be about love, but it would not be a banal novel.
Reading this book we learnt about the life of the ordinary English family. There were five daughters and no sons. Their mother tried to marry her daughters in any way. Mister Bingley, a wealthy young gentleman, came to the country estate near the Bennets called Netherfield. He arrived with his sisters and his good friend, Mister Darcy. Mister Bingley fell in love with Jane Bennet, the eldest daughter. However, the main love story of this book was between Elizabeth Bennet and Mister Darcy. At first they were the opposites, but in due course they understood that they fell in love with each other.
The character of Elizabeth was pleasant to me. She differed from other girls, because she was very smart, witty and had a good sense of humour. Although she made some mistakes and she did not correctly understand the nature of Mister Darcy at first. Because of it she even began to hate him. Most of all I enjoyed reading about the opposition between them. My favourite part was about Mister Darcy’s declaration of love and his proposal to Elizabeth, but at first she refused him. In addition, all the characters of this book were plausible. As a whole I like this book, but probably I would add in this book some more extremely topical moments, because it was a little boring to read it in some way.
After reading I was glad that all the characters found their happiness. This book influenced me. I learnt that we should not judge people superficially and love was more important than the position in society and money. Moreover, if we want to be happy, we have to overcome our pride.
This book has justified my expectations.
To conclude I would like to say that the citation: “From hatred to love is one step” suits this story. Reading this book we learn that pride and prejudice disturb to happiness. I recommend it to all the women from fifteen till hundred.
