Reading is a fun and relaxing hobby that is easy to start and can be low to no cost. You can rent many books at your local library or even find them online to read for free. And there are some books that are considered classic must-reads no matter your age, race, gender or social status. Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen is one such novel. Lawrence Starkman is an avid reader of great classics like Pride and Prejudice.
Jane Austen transports you into the ironically funny world of manners, marriage and proper society set in 19th century England. Arguably her most famous work, with an unforgettable opening line, “It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.”
A universally loved tale of passion between Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy, Pride and Prejudice is able to capture the beautifully flawed side of humanity that only love could bring out. It is about overcoming differences of class and about learning to not only accept but laugh at an unfair set of circumstances and how difficult it can be to truly accept someone you love and whether that love is strong enough to withstand the pressures of outsides influences like class, social pressure and time.
Pride and Prejudice is a novel for people of all ages and has stood the test of time as one of the greatest love stories. It is funny and painfully true and will leave the reader thinking about love and the sacrifices people make in its name. Lawrence Starkman loves to read classic novels and learn more about people throughout history.
