If you have never gotten into this book, you might want to try again. I started the book 2 or 3 times in the past, but the extreme wordiness always put me off. This time I persevered and after several chapters I caught the flow of the language. The wordiness actually disguises many clever insults and wry observations. It’s quite funny, really. Once I caught on to the language, I enjoyed the book quite a bit.

In case you don’t know much about *Pride and Prejudice*, it is a romantic comedy set among the decently well-off and the extremely wealthy families of England. The story concerns the Bennett family, who have five daughters and no sons. Consequently it is the object of their mother to see that they all marry well. The various potential lovers dance verbally with each other, much as they dance in the various balls they attend. A lot of the book’s entertainment is in the cast of odd characters, from the obsequious Mr. Collins to the dithery Mrs. Bennett and the haughty Lady Catherine de Bourgh.

this almost-comic-like novel is way better illustrates than just reading[read as: skimming ;-) ] the less exciting book. I loved how the characters looked and actually felt like real people! Manga classics are the best!!

Easily my favourite of Jane Austen's novels - and quite possibly my favourite book of all time. I have always preferred character-driven novels over plot-driven ones (which is not to suggest that this novel lacks plot; it has plenty).
Elizabeth Bennett is an eminently lovable and relatable heroine (as is her sister Jane). Even the characters who are clearly intended as comic relief are developed enough to feel like real people.

So good! It made the book really funny, I liked how they made the characters look. It was easy to read, and not very confusing, which was good. I would really recommend this.

This translated well into the manga style, and King stuck to the original story plot to make a straight adaptation.

I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it.
