Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“How am I to live in this world knowing that Mr. Darcy only existed in Jane Austen’s mind? Miss Austen, thank you for raising my expectations for literary men and for writing the best literary man that exists. Elizabeth, I don’t like you that much though.”

Set in the 19th century, the novel follows the spirited Elizabeth Bennet as she grapples with her initial prejudice against the proud Mr. Darcy.

Slightly Smiling Face“This book surprise and pleased me. Independent Elizabeth Bennet serves as a protagonist of this narrative,which also examined class,marriage and cultural expectations. Characters come to life in Austen's vivid style and Elizabeth's humour upends expectations. The approachable story explore societal themes with humour, making for educational read. This literary masterpiece broadens horizons and emphasises the importance of classic literature. It took me on an engaging trip.”

About Jane Austen

Jane Austen (16 December 1775 – 18 July 1817) was an English novelist known primarily for her six major novels, which interpret, critique and comment upon the British landed gentry at the end of the 18th century. Austen's plots often explore the dependence of women on marriage in the pursuit of favourable social standing and economic security. Her works critique the novels of sensibility of the second half of the 18th century and are part of the transition to 19th-century literary realism. Her use of biting irony, along with her realism and social commentary, have earned her acclaim among critics and scholars.
