  10. 10. The Review In Pride and Prejudice, I was able to see the beauty of literary masterpiece by Jane Austen. I read this book quickly and aggressively thinking what this useless novel’s. I seriously hate novels. There’s not much to the storyline at all. Rather, it’s the addiction to discover the inner workings of the minds of the characters. As a reader, I couldn’t wait to see Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy find a way to one another… What would Mr. Darcy do to convince her that he was the type of man that she could and would love? Would the heart of this strong-willed woman melt in the arms of this wealthy, super handsome man? Would HE finally be deserving of her love?
  11. 11. Continued.. I never never thought that I would ever be the type of person who would like Novel that too Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice. I just finished reading it and I already want to read it again. This book is a MUST READ for anybody who claims they are a “reader” or lover of books. It’s not that the book or the story are spectacular, but in a way it’s like you learn things about yourself in reading this story. Which character am I like? I am therefore rating Pride & Prejudice 10 out 0f 10
