Title: Pride and Prejudice
Author: Jane Austen
On the surface, Pride and Prejudice is a love story about a young woman named Elizabeth, the second of five daughters in the Bennet family. It follows her through an unusual courtship with a man whom at the beginning she has a strong prejudice against. She eventually comes to realize that she has heard misinformation about him, and that he is not prideful and cold as she once believed. It's a delightful and quick read, lots of fun and completely believable.
A deeper reading reveals the author's feelings about the society in Great Britain at that time: the materialism and politics that went into choosing a spouse, competitiveness of women in catching a husband, superficiality of some friendships, and the way money could be used to cover a multitude of sins. Another thing I got out of reading this book a second time was how people tolerate the ugliness of people in our lives and choose to love them anyway.
This could be something I'd read numerous times throughout my life.
