    Summary
    In Pride and Prejudice we have a house of five girls with a mother trying to get them all a husband. The whole family ends up going to a ball and get to meet Mr. Bingly and Mr. Darcy, Jane, the oldest, and Mr. Bingly fall in love as the night goes on, but many people are against this and are attempting to stop them. Throughout the book Elizabeth, the main character, is having a love-hate relationship with Mr. Darcy. Later Elizabeth meets Mr. Whickham where her sister Mary and her are both trying to woo him. Yet in the end the outcome is Mary and Mr. Whicham get married. Jane and Mr. Bingly end up reuniting no matter what anyone else says and get married and Elizabeth finally caves in and sees that she loves Mr. Darcy and the two of them get married.

    Overall Pride and Prejudice was a very good book. At times it was a little hard to understand who was talking and what was going on. The word choices for each character really fits who they are and their personality. I like where the book ends but at the same time I didn’t. I feel like it should have showed Elizabeth and Darcy getting married and not just sitting there by the water but it was also a good place to end. If you like romance this is a good book for you to read. Overall this book was amazing and so much fun to read.

    Summary:
    Mrs. Bennet is desperate. There doesn’t seem to be rich bachelors anywhere! That is, until Mr. Bingley and Mr. Darcy move into town. Pride and Prejudice tells the tale of Elizabeth, Jane, Kitty, Lydia, and Mary as they all search for love. The only problem is, Mr. Darcy doesn’t seem to think anyone is good enough for him, and Mr. Bingley only seems to have eyes for Jane. None of them mind until Mr. Darcy starts pursuing Elizabeth and she wants nothing to do with him, while Mr. Bingley doesn’t seem to understand Jane likes him back.

    Evaluation:
    It’s an interesting book, although I’d say it’s geared more towards young women. You definitely have to be patient with it. I’ve read it before so I knew what to expect. Even so, I found many new things I hadn’t noticed the first time and I wasn’t too bored. It would be a book for someone who likes slow burn romances, large words, and someone who likes the 1800’s. It’s definitely a book to read, if only for the cultural references.

    Rating – 3/5 stars

    Summary
    In Pride and Prejudice, Mrs. Bennett is demanding that all of her five daughters marry very rich. It mostly centers around Elizabeth and a bit of Jane. Mr. Darcy likes Elizabeth, but she is a stubborn, independent gal that’s hard to corral. Who will win in this game of love?

    Evaluation
    I thought the book was okay. I liked that it ended happily, because that usually doesn’t happen, especially in classics. I think people are so drawn to the opposite of what they have. I have a theory that depressing books are popular because life is so good and there are happy things all around us all the time. We’re drawn to what we don’t have.

    Rating: I give this book a 3
