We received a couple of copies of this book at AustenBlog HQ to distribute to the Gentle Readers who won the drawing (congratulations, Shel and Maria L.!), and we were moved to write up a short non-review of the book. After all, we’ve all read Pride and Prejudice, haven’t we? HAVEN’T WE??? 😉
This edition is not a scholarly take on the novel; it includes no notes, no introduction. It is just an attractive, solidly put-together book, beautifully presented with an attractive cover by the fashion illustrator Ruben Toledo. There is a paragraph of information about the artist, and another about the author, and that’s about it for extras. However, if you’re looking for a gift copy of P&P to
indoctrinate a newbie give to a friend or a young person who hasn’t read the novel, this would be a great selection.
