It Always Comes Back to Mr. Darcy


  Pride and Prejudice

by Guest Blogger, Ari

      Jane Austen writes this book like a good nineteenth century romance over the crime of the social system and economic structure to human events. Austen's novels are simple works that make it worthwhile for the engrossing portraits of life. The satisfying plot makes it enjoyable to read and fun. What Pride and Prejudice is mainly about is the main character Elizabeth, who deals with issues of manners, upbringing, education, and marriage in the society of well classed people.
    The story is based on five sisters and their single minded, illiterate mother who is overly pushy about marrying somebody who can provide. Almost every sister is in distress because of their damaging actions that result in engagements that sometimes ruin their mindset. There are two sisters who are generally normal, have a good head on their shoulders, and do not engage in these actions. Elizabeth is the most levelheaded of them all. My favorite part of the story was when Elizabeth's future husband, Mr. Darcy, is at the church getting a lecture from the priest about general expectations when he marries her because there are very strict rules. The plot of the story is relatively simple; two characters stay the same on the first few pages and the last pages with complications in-between. There is some witty dialogue.
    Some things that I liked about this book were the action, learning a moral, and reading how they deal with their issue, since in today's society we are faced with the same problem of following through with commitment. The not so fond parts of the story were the great detail of the plot, slowness of the dialogue, and character interactions. My favorite character was Elizabeth because of her transformation and perseverance. This was a good book, but I would not recommend it for just anyone because of the complexity and slowness of the story at times. Readers who enjoy classic literature would like this book.
