Finally! I am done with the reading of this book! It was a loooong Journey, that’s for sure. Tbh, I never understood the hype of Pride and Prejudice, but now that I’ve read it myself and seen the movie… I am very happily moving in the fandom.
One thing for sure I learnt about the classic books was… they are slow, logical, descriptive and entertaining when the book is nearly done. The thing that captured my attention was the effort in describing every small detail… Tbh, the story is simple… a guy and a girl meet, some misunderstandings take place between them, and they fall in love. (That sounds bad when I say it out loud but, I don’t mean it in a bad way).
It drove me half crazy, when the events were going so slow and at some moments so quickly, but as and soon I got indulged in it, the small details made a lot more sense than before. Just because of the descriptive manner of the novel, it always kept the reader in a confusion, “I bet he would be the bad guy at last! Who compliments potatoes?!”
I literally suspected every character in the book to be the villain, but alas! The ending is quite different (except for the happy ending part, of course.) Than I imagined. I definitely loved this book! And one last thing! I watched the 2005 version of the movie Pride and Prejudice, but I was disappointed a bit. I mean sure the characters looked accurate, but it all felt so rushed to me, that all of sudden I felt gratitude towards Jane Austen for making the book go at a pace which satisfied the reader till the end.
In all Honesty, it took me almost 1 month to finish this book… because at times I found it boring, with the stuff, that women are gossiping and exchanging letters with their uncles and aunts… and then I had moments when I used to finish 10 chapters at once cause finally! Both the protagonist were in the same room! No matter the six feet distance between them.
Conclusion thus be made that… Jane Austen was a very remarkable writer, who knew how to be “not clichè” . She very well knew her readers (I should learn that from her.) And the book Pride and Prejudice is perfectly rated among social media.
I would rate this book around:
I hope this was helpful! : )
