Pride and Prejudice by 7 year old Rachel

Pride and Prejudice

by Jane Austen

       Elizabeth is the most important character in the story. Elizabeth assumed Darcy was not good for her. Then she found out he was great for her.

If you like romance, this is the perfect book for you. I loved the book. I would give it a nine out of ten.

No, she didn’t read the original version of Pride and Prejudice. This version even had cartoon illustrations. However, it did introduce her to all the key characters, Mr. Darcy, Elizabeth and Jane, and Mr. Bingly. Some say reading these abridged versions might disable her future interest in the much expanded version. I think it might just whet her appetite. Or, if you’re just not into this genre, you’ll not enjoy either way. But, like me, and many other lovers of classic fiction, I can’t get enough of Austen. Bring her to the stage, film, picture book or just packed in one more aesthetically pleasing book cover, I’m in. So why not bring her home to the littlests too?

As Jane Austen said herself, “The person, be it a gentleman or a lady, who has not pleasure in a good novel, must be intolerably stupid”. She said it, not me.

Or, as C.S. Lewis kindly penned it, “You can never get a cup of tea large enough, or a book long enough to suit me”. Amen.

One thought on “Pride and Prejudice by 7 year old Rachel

  1. “We must say she is an excellent walker!” Our son hasn’t read Austen, but he is delighted by Mrs. Bennet in the BBC version which we play from time to time. Thanks for sharing!
