Rating 7/10

 In a world where social class and marriage is important for positive social attitudes towards such persons of interests, Pride and Prejudice explores scandal and heartache due to misunderstandings. Elizabeth Bennet is looking for a suitor and future husband that meets her standards. Mr. Darcy is looking for a wife that meets his standards. Both can’t stand each other but they keep having this chemistry that can’t deny their attraction, Elizabeth denies Mr. Darcy’s proposal, and this creates a scandal for the century. In the end, they do become engaged after Mr. Darcy proposes again.

I am not a fan of this romance English classic literature theme, but it was thrilling to read, and it was humorful. I enjoyed the fact that a man can’t handle rejection. This novel is okay, but it was sort of confusing to read and seeing what is actually happening. Its fine because its in the formal English rather than it being a modernized version of the novel that dumbs it down to easier terms. I prefer a challenge when it comes to reading classical literature.
