Austen's most famous novel and a timeless classic.

Elizabeth Bennet is the perfect Austen heroine: intelligent, generous, sensible, incapable of jealousy or any other major sin. That makes her sound like an insufferable goody-goody, but the truth is she's a completely hip character who ,if provoked, is not above skewering her antagonist with a piece of her exceptionally sharp, yet always polite, 18th-century wit. The real point of the book though, the critical question which will keep you fixated throughout, is: will Elizabeth and Mr Darcy hook up? Read this genuine all-time classic and discover the answer while enjoying a story that has charmed generation after generation.Review:
"Packed with wit." (Helen Dunmore Daily Express)
"The best-loved book by our best-loved novelist" (Independent)
"The wit of Jane Austen has for partner the perfection of her taste" (Virginia Woolf)
"Like Irvine Welsh, I am a great admirer of Jane Austen" (Alexander McCall Smith)
"Another question I've been regularly asked over the past year is what models I had in mind when writing Curious Incident. Was it To Kill a Mockingbird? Was it Catcher in the Rye? In fact, the book most often in my mind was Pride and Prejudice" (Mark Haddon)
