Pride and Prejudice is a humorous story of love and life among English gentility during the Georgian era. Mr Bennet is an English gentleman living in Hertfordshire with his overbearing wife. The Bennet’s five daughters; the beautiful Jane, the clever Elizabeth, the bookish Mary, the immature Kitty and the wild Lydia.
There’s not much dialogue, it very much has a tell don’t show policy and the main characters aren’t together at the same time as you’d want.
AND YET.. IT WORKS!!
Don’t ask me to explain how, considering all these things would be major no nos for me, but I thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish. I suppose it isn’t considered a classic for nothing.
I had two issues, which were, the tell don’t show that happened. I would’ve liked to gone along for the ride of some of the scenes instead of being informed afterwards and how little the main characters actually spent together.
. I highly enjoyed how it encompasses all the different family dramas and other things. It’s the kind of book you read on Sunday while wrapped in a cozy blanket.
Now, considering this was publish in 1813, the style of writing and words used are a lot different, but I didn’t find it difficult to understand and even if there are things I didn’t know the meaning of, I still got the gist of what it was trying convey.
I loved the characters, I loved the plot and I just loved it in general, OK?! Now I’m going to binge watch every movie and every TV show made on this book while reading more Jane Austen books.
To sum up, little to much tell and not enough show, Great plot, Great characters
