Book Recommendation: Pride and Prejudice

So I picked up this the other day at the bookstore, keeping with my desire to catch up on "the classics."  Once I started reading it, the prose felt so familiar and I wondered if this was just from seeing glimpses of the movie from time to time over the year. I didn't think I had ever watched the movie in it's entirety, or read the book, but by the time I finished with Jane Austen's prose, I was convinced that I had just read "Pride and Prejudice" for a second time. For whatever reason that I don't remember the first time I read it, I will definitely not be forgetting Miss Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy again anytime soon. Now that I'm more accustomed to reading things written in the early English dialect, I could find the comedy behind the words and truly enjoy this story. Though Theodore was not nearly as interested in it as I was :)
