Book Review: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen - Reviewed by Romi Foster (15 Jul 2011)
Pride and Prejudice, things that so often make peoples lives the much more difficult. For Elizabeth Bennett's mother, the only thing in her sights is marrying off all her daughters to any rich, and possibly handsome into the bargain, men about. And when Netherfield Court is let to a very handsome and wealthy man by the name of Mr. Bingley, she isn't letting him go without a fight. And then comes Darcy, smouldering and handsome beyond thought, but very rude and careless with his manners.
The family are in for the ride of their life, especially the elder two Bennett sisters...
You can't know Pride and Prejudice without reading the book, and this copy is beautiful!
