Pride and Prejudice is a masterpiece I first read when I was 15 , It was a battered copy I had picked up from a second hand shop. "Love at first line" is how I would describe it, and so began my love for classics. Now years later, I bought this beautiful vintage classics edition and read it for the upteenth time.
Mr. Bennet is the father of five daughters living on a modest income, he is married to Mrs. Bennet whose only goal in life is to get her daughters married . She finds her prayers answered when a young bachelor, a Mr. Bingley comes in their neighbourhood with his sisters and a friend Mr. Darcy and so the story begins.
This book made a big impact on me when I first read it, it deals with marriage for love vs money, class differences, self evolution of both the male and female protagonist.
The characters are written in a very realistic manner , Our heroine is flawed, prejudiced but strong. Elizabeth Bennet is no doormat, she will not marry for comfort and monetary gains but for love. Mr. Darcy had to be my first fictional crush, an epitome of the strong and silent men. Jane Austen immortalized both of them.
The book being published in 1813 is a bit difficult to read for anyone starting on classics but I would urge the reader to give the book some time and it would be worth it.
Now as for book and printing - very nice. The font used is Sabon instead of something ghastly like Times New Roman. Text size is quite comfortable. Paper quality is nice and has a smooth texture to it, although people accustomed to the bright off-white pages might be a bit disappointed at the not so bright pages. So my suggestion is to buy the penguin edition.
I am really disappointed in this publisher. Who expects a new book to miss pages?
Font is small but still readable, not for long period of time. I am happy with the book. The content is complete and unabridged.
As per the book It is a good read, I love how someone of the 20th century can relate to those times, I guess matters of human behavior, heart and their voices always find their way to impact the lives of seekers in this crazy world.
As for the copy of the book I received, the binding is satisfactory, the print is very good, paper quality is what you pay for and the lettering is comfortable enough to read. The Penguin Drop Caps editions have the same coloured edges as the cover, and definitely qualify as a collector's edition.
Happy with my purchase. :)
