The Lovereading4Kids comment
Best loved of all Jane Austen’s novels, the classic love story of Elizabeth Bennett and Mr Darcy has thrilled readers ever since its publication. Strong willed Elizabeth Bennett is determined not to be impressed by her family’s wealthy new neighbour, Mr Darcy. Her first impressions of him are that he is proud and arrogant. Despite being renowned for her wit and beauty, Mr Darcy is apparently equally unimpressed by Elizabeth on first acquaintance. But things change between the two of them in one of the most romantic of all courtships.
March 2011 Guest Editor Terry Jones has chosen the books of Jane Austen:
"One of the joys of reading, for me, is the act of entering into another world, just as with the Rupert Annuals. And one of the worlds I’ve enjoyed retreating into most is the world of Jane Austen. I suppose, if I’m honest, it’s the safety of that world that appeals to me: the security of these mostly rich people living luxurious lives on the cusp of the 18th and 19th centuries. It seems so reasonable, so solid, so permanent. But ah! then it is undercut by Austen’s irony and observation of human foibles. And no matter how many times I read them, every time I go back it’s like reading them for the first time."

If you love a good story, then look no further. Oxford Children's Classics bring together the most unforgettable stories ever told. They're books to treasure and return to again and again. When Elizabeth Bennet first meets Mr Darcy she finds him to be most arrogant. He, in turn, is determined not to be impressed by Elizabeth's beauty and wit. As events unfold their paths cross with more and more frequency, and their disdain for each other grows. Can they ever overcome their prejudices and realize that first impressions are not always reliable?
