Subject: Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice
It is a tradition in my family as a threshold to be passed for a young adult. Once you read the "Pride and Prejudice", you are one of us. So I read the book (translated in Persian), when I was 11 years old or so. I enjoyed the book so much that I read it over and over again. After I moved to the United States, I read the book in English. Many times. So I can claim I know all the details of the book. This book is a soft touch on my emotions. It is like a cool pink lemonade in a mid summer morning. The characters are alive today as they were at the time Jane Austin wrote the book. The dialogue between characters are engaging, and articulate. For a non-native english language reader, I find it fascinating how Jane Austin works with her native toungue to create a symphony of words that are almost like poetry. They are short and concise; Deep, and brisk. The story line is dynamic, and has all the trimmings of a modern day life but set in a 18th century Englan village. I highly recommend this book for learners of the English as a second language.
