The Book Club book

Pride and Prejudice is a book that most people around the world would like to read, at least once!  It is a romance, but also a novel about manners and how to behave.  Mrs Bennet is single minded in finding a good match for each of her five daughters.  This was a crucial task at this time.  The humour, detail of society, and presence of a powerful and independent heroine, Elizabeth Bennet, make Pride and Prejudice one of the most popular novels in the English language of all time.

Geoff says:

"I chose this book  - Jane Austen's most famous novel - because it is beautifully written, and surprisingly funny.  When you get used to Jane Austen's style I do not think that the text is so difficult as there is a lot of dialogue.  The story has been told and retold in so many ways - including influencing Bridget Jones' Diary!  We read the original text, which is a standard length novel (approx 98,000 words)." If you prefer you can read the adapted, shortened version which is about a third of this size.
