Pride and Prejudice

When it comes to classic novels, Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite books.  I like the way that it puts the story.  I like the way that it is so applicable to the modern day.  If you haven’t seen Hank Green’s adaptation of it (The Lizzie Bennett Diaries), then I would suggest you take a look at it.
For a romance book, it’s also about living.  It’s about the expectations that we are put under.  it’s about how people deal with their own pride, whether it is at risk because of someone else’s actions or their own.  From there, they deal with all of the prejudices that they have at their soul.
No character is exempt from this.  Everyone deals with these issues.  Every character has a different permutation.  Even the background characters deal with.
However, despite the issues that each character has, there’s genuine love and human in each of these characters.  This story is about humans dealing with human emotions.
I could go on and on about how all the different characters create this wonderful tapestry of a story.  It’s one of my favorite books.  I own two copies of it, one that is a special edition from the release of The Lizzie Bennett Diaries and one that I read the first time.
I don’t want to talk about too much about it.  If you really want to see what I love about it, then I would suggest just getting it and reading it.  I don’t want to spoil the story for anyone that hasn’t read it.
