Now I want to read this book again! When I read Jane Austen it is easy for me to fantasize about being part of that era. When you stop to think about the implications of that you realize just how much a woman with today's standards will stand out in the society back then.

Society really has changed a lot in some aspects when you compare.

I find that Pride and Prejudice is still very relevant these days. I've just realized how much I can relate to Elizabeth, often surrounded by pure silliness and shallowness, but then because of that given to prejudice. I'd always understood the "pride" part of the title, but now I'm seeing what the "prejudice" begins to mean.
