I guess Jane Eyre would be the one. Somehow i admire her courage to start evrytime from a scratch and hold it till the end. She has those high values which makes her an ideal match for Mr. Rochester. Their fateful yet fruitful story makes me fall in love with both of them.

Jane Eyre because her character arc seems more defined than that of Elizabeth Bennett who seems to accept the institution of patriarchy towards the end, defying the purpose of her female agency.

This is really hard, but I may have to go with Jane Eyre. It depends on what tone you're in the mood for, because Jane Eyre is far more gothic and spooky, whereas P & P is a lighter, social romance.

I feel Pride and Prejudice is far better than Jane Eyre. To me, the plot of Jane Eyre seems contrived. Besides, I enjoy Jane Austen's little ironies and soft humour more. Not to mention the love story of Elizabeth and Darcy!

Read both but I must say I prefer Jane eyre. Seeing as I read it in secondary school, I was from a poor background, went to boarding school so I could relate. It made my heart beat faster.
