Pride and Prejudice is one of our top 100 books. It isn’t just the most famous novel penned by Jane Austen, it’s also one of the most well known novels of all time. A romance that examines society in 19th century England, Pride Prejudice is set in England at the turn of the century. It is an account of the lives of a young woman and her four sisters amongst the genteel. It is a romance comedy that is the predecessor of Harlequin – although to say that would be far too insulting!
