I re-read Pride and Prejudice at least once a year. It's one of the best books I've ever read. I love the way characters say thing, even insults sound beautiful (Especially if you hear them with heavy English accent in your head :)). The language of the story is so beautiful and flows effortlessly. 

Not only a fantastic romance, but detailed description of the time in history. Elizabeth is one of the strongest female characters. Ahead of her time in some ways I admire her strength not to take the easy route and to listen to her heart. She is witty, smart and quick to judge (especially Darcy :)), however she can admit her wrongs too. 

Once I start reading, I can't put it down. From the first page on I was pulled in family dynamic, social interaction, lovely romance that is based on mutual respect and admiration (later on :) ) and friendships. 

And there is Darcy, seeming arrogant and proud, but with good hearth underneath and lots of redeeming qualities. I love the dynamic between them. :) They are equal to each other and complete each other perfectly.

One of the best books and perfect winter reading. :)

Happy reading,

Anie
