Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen
During a recent trip to Germany I brought Jane Austen's 'Pride and Prejudice'. It was my first Austen. It's pretty good, but that's mostly considering the time it was written. Girls meet guys, all goes well, all goes awry and all ends well. It's become totally cliché by now, but still, it's quite a nice example of what we would nowadays conceive as a standard storyline, and there are smaller storylines (Bingley and Jane, the behaviour of the younger sisters) woven into it, adding to the main storyline, so it's not too simple. Comparing to other books I've read from late 18th, early 19th century, the narrative and characters seem to develop pretty consistant and logical. I didn't exactly fall for Mr. Darcy, although he seems a nice guy in the end. I might try more of Austen's books.
