Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Pride and Prejudice (The Cambridge Edition of the Works of Jane Austen) - Jane Austen

This was the first Jane Austen novel I've ever read, and I must admit that it was a bit difficult to get into and complete. The style of language is so prim and proper, often requiring that I reread sections in order to comprehend them. Overall, the book was all right, and at the very least, it made me more interested in Victorian times. I also envy all the letter-writing done throughout the book, for how frequently it was done back then! ;)
