Due to work, I don’t get enough time to read stories. However, recently I read a novel on my sister’s recommendation.
Though the novel is quite famous and many people know the story, I thought I should read it. I wanted to read something to keep myself occupied throughout the lengthy 10-hour flight as I was going on a family holiday. My sister was also accompanying me, so she suggested that I read Pride and Prejudice. It is quite popular and interesting and almost easily available in every bookstore. I followed her advice and purchased one because she is a literature enthusiast and has read almost all classical literature novels.
The characters are the historical creation of Jane Austen, a British novelist. It has an entertaining narrative of love and life in class-conscious late-eighteenth-century England. The novel’s plot revolves around Elizabeth Bennet, the daughter of a country gentleman, and Fitzwilliam Darcy, a wealthy aristocratic landowner, and their tumultuous relationship. To fall in love and get married, they had to overcome the titular sins of pride and prejudice.
Although I could not finish the story during my journey, I developed the internet, so I decided to complete the novel during my vacation and eventually, I did. When I was in college, I heard about the narrative from a lot of people, but I was not interested in reading it at the time. However, after finishing the novel, I resolved to read as many books or stories as I could in my spare time.
