The story follows the main character Elizabeth Bennet as she
deals with issues of manners, upbringing, moral rightness, education and
marriage in her aristocratic society of early 19th century England. Elizabeth is
the second eldest of five daughters of a country gentleman landed in the
fictional town of Meryton in Hertfordshire, not far
I didn't like it as much as I liked Sense & Sensibility, I think Elizabeth was a little annoying. But then again, she reminded me a little of my super contrary days so I might have not liked her because it reminded me of how I used to be...
It definitely held my attention. I don't know that I would read this one over and over like I might Sense & Sensibility, but it was a lovely read all the same. But...I kept imagining Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy and that made it alllll worth it.
