Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen || Book Review

Here’s another classic book that I have found to be a little overrated. 

I’ve never watched any of the movie adaptations because I’ve never had an interest in them and only marked this book on my TBR list because it’s part of my classic books challenge. Otherwise, I probably wouldn’t have given it a second thought.

Originally published: 1813

Pages: 368
Format: Hardcover

Plot from GoodReads:

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE has delighted generations of readers with its ingenious plot, brilliant dialogue, inventive assortment of unique characters, and wealth of humor. The central theme is the romantic clash of two opinionated young people. In one corner, there is Elizabeth Bennet, our highly vivacious heroine, in the other, the arrogant but captivating Mr. Darcy. Their destinies interweave in a timeless pattern of courtship, love, property, and marriage.


It started off a tad boring and then as it went along, it became a little less boring but not so much as to make me think it’s the best thing since sliced bread.

This has to also be one of the earliest books published with the enemies-to-lovers trope, which is one of my favourite tropes from the romance genre so points for that.

Elizabeth is witty and quick to think on her feet but oh so judgemental, it was getting a little old to follow in the story. Then again, what goes around, comes around…

I was curious to find out what the big hype was around Mr. Darcy and why women today still buckle at the knees from hearing his name and yeah, I didn’t find anything special. Maybe it’s because the vampire Lestat is more to my taste when it comes to male protagonists.

The descriptions were beautifully written and that was probably the only read detail that stood out to me from the book.

The book is scattered with humorous moments yet contains deeper emotions and lessons for the characters to grasp onto.

My Rating:

The book has a rating of 4.28 on GoodReads. I gave it a 4.
