Pride and Prejudice= epic snore.

On Monday, I was forced to read Pride and Prejudice, and today I am forced to write a book report on it. So here it comes. Last warning...

There was once the Bennet family. They had five daughters, and Mrs. Bennet wanted them to all marry wealthy men. So when Mr. Bingley, a wealthy single man, comes to their town, she wants one of her daughters to marry him. To make sure that Mr. Bingley would notice Jane, their eldest daughter, the Bennets invited him to a dinner party.

Mr. Bingley brought his sisters, one of his sister's husbands, and his close friend, Mr. Darcy. Mr. Bingley instantly fell in love with Jane. Mr. Darcy was introduced to Elizabeth, who he thought "wasn't pretty enough to tempt him." Elizabeth was outraged and took a dislike to Mr. Darcy.
A few days later, Jane was invited to have dinner with the Bingley family. It was about to rain, but Mrs. Bennet made her ride a horse to get there. Jane fell sick when she was there. Mrs. Bennet was excited by the event, because the summoned doctor said that Jane should stay with the Bingleys until she made a recovery.

Elizabeth was worried about Jane, so she intended to visit her at once. She walked the four miles to Netherfield, just to see her sister. When she was there, Mr. Darcy realized that he may after all like this Elizabeth person.

A few days later, everyone agreed that Jane was well enough to leave Netherfield. When they got home, Mr. Bennet informed everyone that his cousin, Mr. Collins, was coming over for dinner. He wanted to marry one of the Bennet girls! But when they were on a walk, they were introduced to Mr. Wickham, who was an officer. They preffered him to Mr. Collins, because he was dashing and pleasant.

Later, Elizabeth talked to Mr. Wickham; and he talked about why he didn't like Mr. Darcy. Mr. Wickham was late Mr. Darcy's godson, and he was supposed to be provided for, but the position was given to another man. Elizabeth is very angry with Mr. Darcy for doing this. A few days later, there was a ball. Mr. Wickham said he would come, but Elizabeth ended up dancing with Mr. Collins. That's when she takes the hint. Mr. Collins wanted to marry her! Elizabeth pretended to be unaware of this.

And later, he did propose to Elizabeth! She turned the offer down. So her best friend, Charlotte, marries him instead a few days later. But earlier, Jane gets a message saying that Mr. Bingley left for London, and wasn't going to return this winter. Jane was heartbroken. Then, a few days later, someone informed Jane that Mr. Bingley never intended to return to Netherfield.
Elizabeth decided that she would pay Charlotte a visit. She could see that Charlotte wasn't happy with Mr. Collins.

One day, Elizabeth learned that Mr. Darcy was the reason behind Mr. Bingley's away going too! She did when he was proposing to her. She exploded on Mr. Darcy. But the next day, Mr. Darcy quietly gave Elizabeth a letter explaining his reasons for this, and for what he did to Mr. Wickham.

Elizabeth's aunt takes her to see Pemberly, where Mr. Darcy and Wickham spent their youths. She was very nervous about meeting Mr. Darcy there, and having to talk to him. And she does see him! Later, she agrees that she will be brought by carriage back to Pemberly to meet Darcy's younger sister. She had heard Georgiana Darcy was quite proud, but was really very shy.
She was enjoying her stay, when she got word from Jane. The letter said that their younger sister, Lydia, had run off with Mr. Wickham! But later the two come back, are married, and leave again.

Mrs. Bennet had heard word that Mr. Bingley was returning to Netherfield soon! She was beside herself with joy, but Jane pretended to act indifferent.

A few days later, Mr. Darcy proposed to Elizabeth again. Elizabeth quickly said yes. They were married, and Elizabeth lived with Darcy and Georgiana at Pemberly. Elizabeth and Georgiana became best friends, and later Mr. Bingley and Jane married too!
