Review: Pride and Prejudice
Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A psychological portrait of the 19th century's high-class society of England. A story of love, pride, prejudice, stupidity and strength.
Beautiful language. Interesting plot. The main character, Elisabeth, is a great example of a smart and strong young woman.
However, in general, book's characters do not have that much depth and are little too simplistic - either clearly good or bad. The major theme of proposals and marriage is sometimes getting dull.
