Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Sarcasm doesn’t translate so well over textual mediums, as anyone who has ever tried and failed to make a joke in the group chat will tell you. It also sometimes doesn’t translate so well in a book from over two centuries ago.

Pride and Prejudice is a sharp, engaging book full of SUBTEXT and NUANCE. It contains complicated, believable characters with strengths and flaws and failings. This isn’t a book that just HAPPENS to you—it’s a book you have to put a bit of effort into. But there’s a reason it’s managed to stand the test of time.
