PRIDE AND PREJUDICE TURNS 200!

I'm doing something I normally don't do. This is the exact post that I listed today over on Jerri Hines, Romance Author. I won't be doing this often but wanted to acknowledge the winners of last week book giveaway and it's not everyday that Pride and Prejudice turns 200!

Back on January 28th, 1813, Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen was published. So launched one of the most beloved romances! It has become one of the most loved books of all time. Pride and Prejudice captures our imagination and pulls us into the world according to Elizabeth Bennett.

There is so much to love about Pride and Prejudice. I remember reading and rereading it in my youth. I also remember my joy when as an adult I picked the book back up at the library. It felt like I was reading it for the first time. Reading it felt like going home. In a sense, I guess I did. I relate Pride and Prejudice to a happy time and reading it allows me an escape from reality if only for a brief moment.

I was trying to think specifically what I loved the most about Pride and Prejudice. Ms Austen did a magnificent job of capturing the era. I confess my picture of the Regency period is reflective of this book. The storyline has held through out time. Ms Austen weaves a wonderful tale of romance and the rocky road it entails. But I believe that I love the characters the best in Pride and Prejudice.  Elizabeth Bennett has to be one of my all time favorite characters for numerous reason. Mostly, I loved her spirit.

I don't think I have to analyze Pride and Prejudice. It has been analyzed and discussed many times in its 200 years. What I can do for you if you haven't read Pride and Prejudice in a while is link you up to the Amazon site for a free download of the book.
