To me, this is the classic regency romance novel. The one on which all others are based. The one to which all others attempt to emulate. They simply don't get any better than this. Jane Austen has the advantage of being contemporary - thereby making the social mores of the time second nature to her. Elizabeth is a strong and witty woman who, while willing to challenge in some ways the social constraints of the time (she has no trouble confronting Lady Catherine, for instance, and refusing Mr. Collins), nevertheless, she is a woman of her time and does not step drastically outside her bounds. Darcy is possibly a more complex character than Lizzy - proud, yes, but also gentle, kind, and even shy, orphaned young and given the care of a young sister. There is very little I can say about this book that has not already been said - so I won't try. :) But this is an excellent book; a true star of its genre.
