Pride & Prejudice

It is a truth universally acknowledgement, that a singleman in proffesion of a good fourtune, must be in want of wife.
However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighbourdhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families, that he is considered the rightful property of some one or other of their daughter
You will find that sentences at beginning of this book. A history novel created by Jane Austin whose also known as creator of  Sense & Sensibility, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northhanger Abbey and Persuasion. This novel is published by Nabu Press in May, 2010.
Having set up the central misunderstanding of the novel, Austen then brings in her cast of fascinating secondary characters: Mr. Collins, the sycophantic clergyman who aspires to Lizzy's hand but settles for her best friend, Charlotte, instead; Lady Catherine de Bourgh, Mr. Darcy's insufferably snobbish aunt; and the Gardiners, Jane and Elizabeth's low-born but noble-hearted aunt and uncle. Some of Austen's best comedy comes from mixing and matching these representatives of different classes and economic strata, demonstrating the hypocrisy at the heart of so many social interactions
