Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen

Fits the book perfectly!

First published in 1813, "Pride and Prejudice," Jane Austen's witty comedy of manners - one of the most popular novels of all time - tells the story of Mr and Mrs Bennet's five unmarried daughters after the rich and eligible Mr Bingley and his status-conscious friend, Mr Darcy, have moved into their neighbourhood. "It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife." So begins the novel, that features splendidly civilized sparring between the proud Mr. Darcy and the prejudiced Elizabeth Bennet as they play out their spirited courtship in a series of eighteenth-century drawing-room intrigues

My thoughts and opinion:
At first I really didn't like the book cause everything was just so focused on the mother's only priority: getting of her daughters married. Which by the way won't be any better throughout the book. But I just loved the chemistry between Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. While at first they both had prejudices and wouldn't even want to talk to each other, their love slowly grows. Against all odds.

It's simply a classic and I can recommend it to everyone!
