    Go with other Jane Austen such as Emma or Persuasion

    Alternatively, you might want to consider The Importance of Being Earnest

    I am going preface this with the fact I have read the whole Twilight series, I found it to be poorly written and that the characters are not very well developed. That being said, Stephenie Meyers took inspiration from Pride and Prejudice, to write Twilight, the first book in the series. The books ended up sharing a lot of the same themes.

    The idea that first impressions are not always correct. The idea that our own beliefs and prejudices hinder our first impressions. The way the kids at school are afraid of the Cullens. Edward originally thought that Bella was graceful and unobservant. Elizabeth's impression that Mr. Dracy is too proud and vain. Mr. Dracy's impression that Elizabeth is uncultured and unread.

    The effects of different styles of parenting/upbringing. Bella was raised by a flighty/immature mother so she became the care taker in the relationship. Bella has issues with being taken care of. Edward on the other hand, was brought up by Carlisle to be principled, moral, and responsible. This causes him to extremely overbearing and protective. Elizabeth's mother was extremely flighty and lack some social graces. Mr. Dracy was raised to be principled, responsible, and to be a member of the highest social class.

    Love, while a major theme for the whole Twilight series, is really only seen as first love in Twilight. Where everything is new and exciting. The infatuation period. Mr. Dracy and Elizabeth's love was slow growing and very deep.

    Once you have read Pride and Prejudice and fallen in love with a real classic, there are two interesting new books for you to read. One is called Darcy's Story, which tells the story from Mr. Darcy's POV and the other is Mr. Darcy's Diary. I think you will find that you are very anxious to learn more about the wonderful Mr. Darcy who leaves Ed Cullen in the dust. He is one of literature's most endearing characters. Pax-C

  • Taming of the Shrew by Shakespeare has a similar love-hate relationship to Pride and Prejudice.
