I am not a literature student and not very well read especially when it comes to classics. So this review is primarily for people like me. Don’t look for any technical criticism or a synopsis of the story. The internet is full of that. This is only a go ahead signal for someone wary of classics in general.
I am not into reading the classics. Most of the times I don’t connect or I find them a drag. But pride and prejudice was on my to read list since long. How could a romantic like me miss the most romantic novels of all times.
Unlike many other times I wasn’t disappointed by this one at all. In fact I truly agree with the title being the most romantic. Such a subtle beautiful romance… I didn’t have too many expectations but it was just not how every other classic made me feel. And even when I compare it with the other books in same genre this one without doubt takes the trophy.
Even after so many years into publication it does not feel out of date. In recent times I have been especially slow in my readings. No matter what after a tiring day with a toddler I cannot keep my eyes open for very long. But this one kept me awake and I finished it in record time…. and the only reason I had slow down was because I didn’t want the master piece to end.
So even if you aren’t the kind to pick up the much acclaimed classics but you like reading romance this one is not to be missed. It will warm your heart and make you smile and of course Mr Darcy will win your heart without fail.
I read this on kindle but loved it so much that plan to keep a copy on my shelf. After this one I definitely look forward to read some more work by Austen.
