Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen This book took me more than a month to read. The first half was such a struggle for me. Because English isn't my first language, I had some troubles with those (veryyyy) long sentences, that contained words I defenitly didn't learn in school.
At about 55 - 60% of the book I started to like it. The romance started, I had something to root for, and I really got into the story.

I loved reading about that time, it's so fascinating. There was such a pressure on woman to get married, and be admirable by having proper manners, have drawing skills and musical talent.
I bet Jane Austen didn't imagine that 200 years later girls would be studying till their mid-twenties, make a carreer, and just looked for their future partner on the internet.

I loved the characters in this book. Mr Bennet is really funny, Mrs. Bennet is so dramatic that it's hilarious. Lizzy's sister Lydia is one of the most annoying persons in a book, ever.
They were well described, and got their own personality in this book.
