Since its immediate success in 1813, Pride and Prejudice has remained one of the most popular novels in English literature.

Jane Austen herself called this brilliant work "her own beloved child" and her lively heroine, Elizabeth Bennet, "as the most wonderful creature that ever appeared in books." Mrs. Bennet's five unforgettable daughters, all in search of an enviable marriage, paint a joyful and poignant picture of life in the English countryside at the end of the 18th century.

The fates of Elizabeth, Jane, Mr. Bingli and the late Mr. Darcy is caught in an irresistible psychological dance that sheds light on the unpredictable and multifaceted human spirit, especially when faced with love or something similar.

The romantic clash between the thoughtful Elizabeth and her haughty lover, Mr. Darcy, is a fine display of civilized debate. This is an unforgettable story about the carelessness of first impressions, the power of reason, and above all about the strange dynamics of human relationships and emotions.

Excerpts from the book

1) ...never, as in that moment, had you felt so sincerely that you were in love
with him, now that love was all in vain.

2) Vanity and pride are different traits, although we often
see them as synonyms. One can feel proud without feeling
conceited. Pride has more to do with the opinion we have of
ourselves; vanity relates to what we would like others to think
of us.

3) I have a kind of stubbornness inside me, which never allows me to be
intimidated by anyone. On the contrary, my courage grows when someone
tries to scare me.

4) I fought in vain. Well, I can't anymore. I am unable to suppress
my feelings. Let me tell you that I adore you and love you madly!
