Took this book from the meet-up at the Kaleidoscope Cafe, Brunswick, Australia today and am looking forward to reading it, have been looking for this book for quite awhile.

The back blurb:
"Pride and Prejudice, first published in 1813, is probably Jane Austen's best-loved work and certainly one of the most enduringly popular of all English novels. In Elizabeth Bennet the author drew a supremely spirited and attractive heroine - 'I must confess that I think her as delightful a creature as ever appeared in print' - her encounter with the proud Darcy is surely one of the most charming of all love stories. Beneath the delicate and sparkling surface, however, may lie a sense of the oppositions of playfulness and regulation, of energy and order, of Romantic values and Classical virtues, and of the civilized balance between them." (this version is edited by Tony Tanner)

10/06/2007: Finished this book about two days ago. For me the introduction by T. Tanner was not very interesting nor well written, but I definitely enjoyed the story itself. I think that this story - even if an old one - still can teach us quite a lot today. How often is every single one of us preoccupied by first impressions or what 'other people told us', rather than just making our own experiences and giving everyone an equal chance - no matter which race, gender, level of education or anything similar.

Part of the 1 Year = 1 Country Challenge for England.
