Jane Austen’s novel Pride and Prejudice is a classic for a reason, and this manga adaptation will bring the story of Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy to a whole new generation of readers. When the wealthy Mr. Bingley rents a nearby property, the people of Meryton and its surrounding estates are full of anticipation; and when he brings with him his sisters and the even wealthier Mr. Darcy, imaginations start running wild with ideas of marriage. Bingley, an affable young man, falls for Jane Bennet. But Jane’s sister Elizabeth, like many others, takes an instant dislike for Darcy, who is quiet and proud. But when Darcy falls for Elizabeth, she will have to face her own personal prejudices in order to understand who Darcy truly is.

The story itself is abridged – many scenes are trimmed or cut out entirely – but all of the essentials are there; this is a faithful retelling of this story! Much of the language has been changed to make the story more understandable for modern readers, but some of the more famous quotes are left intact. The artwork is fun, and brings a rich new meaning to the story. This version of Pride and Prejudice is sure to be a hit with readers both new to the story and those who already love it.
