It's one of British literature's most popular novels—but you've never read Pride and Prejudice like this before. Whether you're a stressed student looking to do better in British lit or you're an Austen devotee, the most famous romance of pastoral England has never been more accessible. Read the book on your own time and on the go, with accompanying text and video analyses, reviews, quizzes and study guides.
Collagist Fabe adds flair to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice with 39 original illustrations that accompany the unabridged text. Fabe's collages overlay bright, watercolor-washed scenes with retro cut-paper figures and objects sampled from fashion magazines from the 1930s to the '50s. Accompanying each tableau is a quote from the Pride and Prejudice passage that inspired it. Like Austen's book, Fabe's work explores arcane customs of beauty and courtship, pageantry and social artifice: in one collage, a housewife holds a tray of drinks while a man sits happily with a sandwich in hand in the distance. While tinged with irony and more than a dash of social commentary, the collages nevertheless have a spirit of glee and evidence deep reverence for the novel. As Fabe describes in a preface, Austen "was a little bit mean the way real people are mean so there are both heroes and nincompoops. Family is both beloved and annoying. That is Austen's genius, her ability to describe people in all their frailty and humor." This is a sweet and visually appealing homage. (BookLife)

Fabulous except one thing...
This is one of my favorite books, and as a middle schooler, that's saying a lot. I have many editions of this book, and I loved the beginning introduction! However, this book took quite a while to download, which was extraordinarily frustrating! On another note, the plot of this book is fantastic. To dumb down the classic literature text, it is a true story of drama, love, prejudice, rudeness, brattiness, and true love. I just love the characters so much! If you are into gossip, drama, or anything along those lines,this is the book for you!
