Description This novel hardly needs an introduction, since it must be one of the most universally beloved in the whole history of books. Its opening line is oft quoted and eminently quotable: “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” The story that ensues, of a family of five daughters whose future depends on securing such men of good fortune, includes within it one of literature’s most unforgettable romances. And the hint of comedic social satire we find in that first line, infuses every page thereafter. “Pride and Prejudice” is a classic in the truest sense. Why Lisa loves this book When I read this book, I am transported to the social scene of 19th century England, where I have found myself in the company of the cleverest and most entertaining of social critics. While the captivating story plays out, I feel for much of it like I am sitting on the sidelines listening to the scathingly funny analysis of someone who stands above it all. But I also fall tumbling, head over heels, for the romance of it. I know hardly a reader who does not afterward sigh with lovestruck affection for its hero or its heroine. I certainly do.
