Pride and PrejudiceI have always wanted to read this book, a true classic. Jane Austen is one of the great masters of the English language, and its one of her masterpieces. I enjoyed the book. It was wonderful feeling to read such an old book. Even though I took many days to read this book, I liked it.

I like almost all characters here, especially headstrong Elizabeth and proud Mr. Darcy. They make a good pair together. When the wealthy Mr. Bingley moves to Netherfeld Mrs. Bennet is  certain he will marry one of her girls: Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Catherine, or Lydia. And so one of the greatest love stories ever told begins. More than anything I liked the way author described the society through out the story.

I faced difficulty to understand the heavy English language ( I am so used to simple novels.. I should read classics more often to get a grip on language). While reading sometimes I used audio books too.One thing I noticed is author never describes about places and the interior of houses a lot, it would have been more helpful to know the things from olden days better. But I would surely read more classics it makes me happy.

I am planning to watch movies based on the novel. There are many, Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice gets a Bollywood treatment and its called  Bride and prejudice starring Aishwarya Rai  and Martin Henderson.

Somehow it skipped out of my memory.  I dunno how can I forget this wonderful romance?  I read it almost 2 years back. Its an amazing love story filled with romance.

Coming to the story Josh Donovan is a popular singer with huge fan group. Even thogh he is famous and rich, he still misses something and some memories haunt him. Libby Forsythe and Josh Donovan  grew up as orphans  in an orphanage with all facilities but Josh always felt the need to runaway.  But when they planned a getaway, Josh was left with a lone dusty guitar. She had chetaed him, atleast thats what he thought. After many years when they both met will he fall in love with her again? Will she able to digest the fact that he is still ashamed of being orphan? How can they fall in love if they are so different form each other?

A woncderful romantic novel, which will stir the feelings inside you. If you want a classic romance its a good book to read.
