“Pride and Prejudice” by Jane Austen

That is a truly fine book. I wrote last week about Sandy Fussell’s “Samurai Kids” series, which sparkles with wit and warmth on every page. “Pride and Prejudice” is like that – brimming with brilliant one-liners and clever observations. The only other series that I think hits the “every page” rule so well is the “Larklight” trilogy by Philip Reeve.

    People think they know Pride and Prejudice from the BBC series and other incarnations, they can’t fully get it unless they read the actual book – the language is amazing πŸ™‚
