5.0 von 5 Sternen My All-Time Favorite
"~Though only sixteen, I consider myself to be moderately well-read. I love reading, and, when I am between books, my life feels desolate and empty. One day, while in the most barren pit of ennui, I picked up Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice at my mother's recommendation. I do not ordinarily like my mother's taste in reading; her favorite books tend to be very...

2.0 von 5 Sternen Not enough
I have been looking for books on CD (long drive to work) and thought I would try this abridged version of Pride and Prejudice. I happen to love Jane Austen and Pride and Prejudice is a fantastic novel. However, this abridged version lacked some of the best aspects of the original story. They cut it down to 3 hours (can't be helped, I guess) and, therefore, the story...

4.0 von 5 Sternen Geniales Buch - Aber warum die Kürzungen?, 26. Februar 2007

(REAL NAME)   
Da meine Generation (Ende 80er) nicht sonderlich vertraut ist mit der klassischen Literatur und damit auch nicht mit den Büchern von Jane Austen, bin ich erst durch die neue Verfilmung mit Keira Knightey auf die Geschichte gestoßen und war sofort fasziniert. Nach dem Film war mir klar: ich möchte mehr wissen und es war klar, dass die BBC-Verfilmung und natürlich das Buch selbst kommen mussten. Ich wollte die Geschichte unbedingt im Originaltext vor mir haben. Da ich aber Probleme habe, englische Bücher zu lesen, habe ich mir lieber das Hörbuch zugelegt und war begeistert. Joanna Davis liest meiner Meinung nach sehr lebendig und durch ihre Stimme fühlte ich mich komplett in die Erzählung hineinversetzt. Auch die vielfach kritisierte Imitation von Mrs. Bennet fand ich keineswegs übertrieben, sondern genau so, wie ich sie mir vorgestellt habe.

Den Stern Abzug gibt es für die leider vorgenommenen Kürzungen, die von vielen anderen, aber wahrscheinlich eher positiv gesehen werden.

5.0 von 5 Sternen ganz anders als erwartet, 16. Februar 2004
Von Ein Kunde
Nachdem ich mich vor Jahren in der Schule durch "The Catcher in the Rye" quälen mußte (das schlechteste Buch das mir je in die Finger kam) und mich auch für die übrigen "Klassiker" der Literatur, die mir in meiner schulischen Laufbahn über den Weg liefen nur sehr bedingt begeistern konnte, hatte ich gewissen Vorurteile, was sogenannte "Klassiker" betrifft. Der Preis des Buches und die Tatsache, dass man ab und zu etwas für seine Allgemeinbildung machen sollte, hat mich zum Kauf des Buches veranlasst. Tja, nachdem ich mich überwunden hatte, mit dem Buch anzufangen war ich nicht mehr ansprechbar bevor ich nicht am Ende desselben angelangt war! Natürlich ist der Verlauf des Buches im wesentlichen absehbar aber das ändert nichts an der Tatsache, dass es sich um eine wunderbar sensibel erzählte Liebesgeschichte handelt, die einen die Welt um sich herum vergessen läßt. (Nebenbei bemerkt - das Ende von Liebesgeschichten ist eigentlich immer absehbar, insofern kann dies eigentlich kein Punkt zur Kritik sein).
Am Anfang fand ich das Buch aufgrund der "veralteten" Sprachweise ziemlich schwierig zu lesen aber wenn man sich erstmal eingelesen hat, stellt das kein Problem mehr dar. Wiewohl ich die deutsche Übersetzung nicht kenne, glaube ich, dass es besser ist, das Buch in der Originalsprache zu lesen. Ich kann mir einfach nicht vorstellen, dass durch die Übersetzung nicht einiges an der liebevollen Erzählung verloren geht.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Appearances Can Be Deceiving about Character, 21. Juli 2006
Von

Rezension bezieht sich auf: Pride and Prejudice (Taschenbuch)
The lasting appeal of Pride and Prejudice is worth explaining to those who haven't read the book or seen the movies before launching into a review of this British classic. First, there may be no finer book at exploring the topic of how appearances can be deceiving. Those who are physically attractive, employ pleasant manners and flatter us will earn our approval and cause us to feel affectionate towards them. Those who are less attractive to regard, keep to themselves and say insulting things will become people we will think poorly of. To see how misleading those reactions can be in assessing character, compare Abraham Lincoln to Jefferson Davis, the head of the Confederacy. Lincoln was dour, ugly and awkward with people. Jefferson Davis was just the opposite. When it came to character, Lincoln had enough to hold the Union together and is now viewed as one of our greatest presidents. Most people don't remember Jefferson Davis unless reminded.

Second, at another level Pride and Prejudice is a delightful romantic comedy that looks at how love develops through a series of painful mischances. Although not as light and funny as Shakespeare's comedies are (A Midsummer Night's Dream comes to mind), Pride and Prejudice will certainly bring a smile to most readers' faces in this regard.

Third, Elizabeth Bennet is one of the best heroines ever imagined. Most readers will identify with her and be rooting for her to succeed. You'll almost feel like you've developed a good friend from reading this book.

Fourth, Jane Austen is very good at poking fun at the pretensions of those who are self-absorbed or fascinated with social position and money. But it's a loving kind of fun. She realizes that these people are just silly . . . and don't know any better. We can enjoy a good laugh at their expense, but we should still love and support them. It's a good model for dealing with any goofy relatives we have.

Fifth, Pride and Prejudice is a benchmark at how far women have come from the days when they often couldn't even inherit property from their fathers. You'll be as outraged as Mrs. Bennet is at these anachronisms . . . but you'll be assuaged to know that the worst of those bad old days are behind us.

So, if those reasons to read Pride and Prejudice appeal to you, read on as I briefly describe the story.

The Bennets have a challenge: They have five unmarried daughters who cannot inherit Mr. Bennet's entailed estate. With few prospects in the neighborhood, Mrs. Bennet is always on the hunt. Mr. Bennet views Mrs. Bennet's fascination with this challenge as being something he would like to distance himself from.

When an eligible young man moves into the area, Mrs. Bennet's instincts are engaged to the fullest. One of her daughters must marry Mr. Bingley. At the next ball, the pickings seem to improve when Mr. Bingley arrives with a friend, Mr. Darcy. Darcy "soon drew the attention of the room by his fine tall person, handsome features, noble mien; and the report . . . of his having ten thousand a year." But Mr. Darcy soon turned the fortune hunters off by only dancing with his sisters and refusing to be introduced to any of the other ladies.

Bingley finds himself very attracted to Jane Bennet and their relationship develops nicely . . . until he leaves suddenly for London with no plans to return. Jane waits for some news from him or his sisters and finds herself being cut off.

In the middle of this, Mr. Collins arrives. Collins will inherit Mr. Bennet's property upon his death. He has just received a position as a clergyman from a powerful and opinionated sponsor, Lady Catherine de Bourgh, and she has told him to get married. With four unmarried cousins, Collins decides the Bennet daughters are his best bet. In this way, he can provide a home for them and their mother after he inherits. First being inspired by Jane, he redirects his attention to Elizabeth after perceiving Jane's interest in Bingley and quickly proposes. Elizabeth will have none of it, and Collins soon finds a more enthusiastic prospect in another local family.

The younger sisters are finding themselves more than entertained by the dashing officers in a local regiment. Through this connection, Elizabeth becomes acquainted with Wickham who confides in her that Mr. Darcy had treated Wickham with great unfairness after Mr. Darcy's father's death. That's just one more nail in the coffin for the case against Mr. Darcy.

But in the background, we get hints that something is shifting. Mr. Darcy goes from finding Elizabeth to be ordinary in appearance to commenting favorably about one small aspect of her face, her mouth. But put the two of them together, and civil words do not follow. They are like oil and water.

Jane and Elizabeth eventually make it to London where both hope that Jane will reconnect with Bingley. But no such luck.

Just when things seem to be headed in a most bleak direction, a terrible event occurs that shakes everyone like an enormous earthquake. In its aftermath, each character finds herself or himself needed to re-examine their position and perceptions of one another.

Will Jane and Bingley connect with one another again? Will Elizabeth find happiness? Will Mrs. Bennet marry her daughters off? You'll just have to read the book to find out. But unlike modern novelists, remember that Jane Austen wasn't against happy endings.

Enjoy a great read!

4.0 von 5 Sternen better than Emma, 24. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Pride and Prejudice (Taschenbuch)
Pride and Prejudice is a great book. I've always liked Jane Austen's style, and I'm much interested in books during this period. This novel is a perfect example about feminine frivolity and Victorian ways of mind. It's also epidemizes the importance of humbleness.
All the characters plainly suggest that the highest standard a woman had in during the early 1800's was being a rich man's wife. Pride and Prejudice narrates a story about a poor man's daughters and their stuggles in "catching" a man of high society.
Jane, the beauty, longs for the attention of Mr. Bingley, the owner of Netherfield Park. Through parties, dinners, and occasional ailments, their love blossoms into a possible proposal.
Elizabeth, the easygoing, proud daughter, battles the intolerably rude and snobby blueblood, Mr. Darcy. Though they can't stand each others company, this friction grows into love. The only problem is their stubborn pride, each refusing to acknowledge the fact that they've fallen for people whom they regard as the scum of the world.
Lydia, the youngest and the rashest, hopes to marry the crooked Mr. Wickham, but Wickham has different ideas.
I loved Pride and Prejudice, and I recommend this book to anyone who loves romances.

5.0 von 5 Sternen This novel was extremely enjoyable to read., 5. November 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Pride and Prejudice (Gebundene Ausgabe)
Jane Austen's novel, "Pride and Prejudice", was a great novel written as a portrayal of what life was like in the eighteenth century in England. This amusing tale revolves around an embarassing couple, named the Bennets and their five daughters. The Bennets, were what I would consider to be one of the most disfunctional families in all of history. The book starts way back in time when women could do nothing but to marry well, and as one can see having five daughters was more a curse, than a blessing.
In the beginning Mrs. Bennet starts off by telling her daughters to marry well. At the same time, a wealthy man moves close to Netherfield, the house that they live in. The oldest of the five daughters, Jane, falls in love with this man, whose name later turns out to be Charles Bingley. Charles falls in love with Jane, depite her family's strange ways. Mr. Bingley and his friend Darcy talk often of the Bennet sisters, and later Mr. Darcy falls in love with one of them... the oldest Elizabeth, but she unfortunately turns him down, even though she later begins to have some other feelings for him. Lydia, the youngest daughter elopes with a man named Mr. Wickham and the family is very upset about this action. Jane and Mr. Bingley are getting closer but his younger sister Caroline tries to break them apart.
Jane Austen's novel reflects many ways of life, including both the good and the bad times, all while in the search for happiness. This novel's story almost reminds me of another classic called, Little Women, which surprisingly enough was not written by Austen, because it has the same type of story line.

5.0 von 5 Sternen My all-time favorite book!, 10. Dezember 1998
Von Ein Kunde
I feel sorry for the young person who thought this book was boring. What a shame that you can't relax and stop thinking about yourself long enough to take the time to revel in one of the greatest works in English literature.
The plot is timeless, and I can guarantee that many of the characters will resemble people you know. Yes, the dialogue may be difficult to follow at first but, after a while, "listening" to it becomes almost second nature.
I first read this book when I was 11 or 12, and have read it at least 10 or 15 times since, including at least twice for school. In fact, I chose to read it again just so I could write a paper on it.
Buy this book, sit down and lose yourself in Jane Austen's world. Then try Persuasion, Emma or Sense & Sensibility (I'm afraid I can't recommend Mansfield Park very highly). If you have any trace of imagination, you will be hooked.
Please, do yourselves a favor and read the book before seeing any of the adaptations. Each has its advantages, but the recent BBC/A&E version with Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle is a sight to behold. The Garvie/Rintoul version is also good, but not quite as beautiful to watch. It pains me to say this, but the Greer Garson/Laurence Olivier version is far and away the weakest.

Von Ein Kunde
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Pride and Prejudice (Taschenbuch)
Pride and Prejudice is a very nice story. However it is difficult to read because it is written in Old English. My favorite character would be Elizabeth Bennet, or Lizzy as she is frequently reffered. She is willing to let love walk out the door because another woman is interested. Lizzy definately dislikes competition. She does make her presence known. Not rudely, but can get very defensive and in that quite comical. Lizzy presents herself very well. Like they say "A first impression is a lasting impression". I picture her as tall, very beautiful, and soft spoken. Unlike others she has a beautiful smell and good taste in clothing. Lizzy reminds me a lot of Emma Woodhouse in Emma and Elinor Dashwood in Sense and Sensability. Coincidently, both of these novels were also written by Jane Austen. The reason I believe these three characters are alike is because they each either search for love for other people and over-look their own need, in the case of Emma, or they simply allow other women to appear to fill in the role in the cases of Elinor and Lizzy. Another thing that relates Lizzy, Emma and Elinor is the fact that they are all very dependent and become so in the coarse of the novels. Their love interest are not a priority and they do not depend on their parents support emotionally. Lizzy grows as and individual when she spends two weeks at their friends house with her sister Jane. This seperation allows her to grow away from her parents to take care of Jane and make some of her own decisions. While there, she does not allow herself to show many emotions toward other people and over looks emotions displayed toward her by others. Mr. Woodhouse, Emma's father, dislikes going out past their fence and that forces Emma to go out to social events on her own. In a way she becomes too dependent and doesn't realize what she may be missing out on with other characters of the book. Elinor appears to be unconcerned. Her love interest pops in and out of the novel and her true feelings are not completely revealed until the end of the novel. Her independence comes from helping her moher raise two of her sisters, Margarette and Marianne. I would reccomend this novel to someone who is enterested in branching out their reading experiences to old English romance. I enjoyed reading this book because of its interesting characters. There was always a mdest joke or disagreement, I was never bored. I also enjoyed picturing the events in my head. Some of the scenes were so beautiful. Taking place in lovely gardens you see only in your dreams, and extremely elegant mansions. Reminding me of the time I went to Mount Vernon, the home of George Washington, and Montecello, the home of Thomas Jefferson. Back then people were so polite. Rudeness was severly frowned upon especially when directed at or in the presence of a lady. Very different from today's society. It is interesting to see what it was like back then for entertainment without a television or radio. I enjoyed this novel very much as well as some of Jane Austen's other works which have been made into major motion pictures that are also very enjoyable.

5.0 von 5 Sternen It was excellent, brilliant. The best book i've ever read., 1. Oktober 1998
Von Ein Kunde
Pride and Prejudice would have to be the best book i've ever read in my whole entire life. I just totally fell in love with Elizabeth and Mr Darcy and all the other characters Jane, Kitty, Mr and Mrs Bennet. I think Elizabeth is the perfect role model for all women. I loved her because she's witty, stubborn, polite yet intelligent and gentle, I mean what a woman! I've read the book 7 times and cant get enough of it.The BBC adaptation of the book was brilliant Jennifer Ehle was the perfect Elizabeth and Colin Firth was the perfect Mr Darcy, both were exactly how I'd imagined the characters to be like. I would recommend this book to everyone of all ages because although it was written in the 1813 it's characters are truly hip. It is just the coolest book, I LUVE IT!.

5.0 von 5 Sternen One of the greatest books ever written, 8. September 1997
Von Ein Kunde
This book was a required reading for university. I was not quite certain what to think.....that is until I started to get into the book. This novel is a delightful and intriguing romantic comedy. The pride of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennett's prejudice against him are overcome as they learn that love can and does conquer. Elizabeth was a character I could relate to. She was not afraid to stand up for herself and overcame conventions, like walking through mud to see her sick sister, Jane!

Perhaps I am not the most qualified to write a review of Jane Austen's work, but I know what I like. This book had me laughing from beginning to end. With Mr. Collins' "speeches" and Mrs. Bennett desperately trying to marry off all her daughter's, who can help themselves? I am now hooked on Jane Austen because of this one book. Read it and experience it for yourself.
