The Best Love Story Ever


Elyoom someone asked me what my favorite love story was and after a few minutes of thinking I came to this conclusion: Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.

Mark Darcy eyaanin...3ad if you knew me you'd understand lana gharaaami il rayal eli he doesn't show his emotions o is very complicated.

The Book

El ketab is a CLASSIC weli mu gareeh I highly recommend that you do... o eb asra3 wagt ba3ad .. (shemga3edkom yala now..)

The story revolves around a middle-class family of girls (Elizabeth Bennet il main character minhom) o a rich bachelor (Mark Darcy 7abeeb Um Manaf)... mara7 agoolikom anything about the plot lana I know how some of you hate to know things before you read it..

A lot of movies have been released throughout the years and I've seen some of them..the BEST one in my opinion is a BBC mini-series of the story. If you can get your hands on it jad lay6oofkom, BBC does an excellent job portraying il qe9a. Fe il version il thany mal Keira Knightly which isn't bad bes it no way NEAR does justice for the story!

The Author

Jane Austen is English o is best known for her witty and comedic fiction and is one of the few writers of the 18th century that boldly assisted in the transformation of literature from classicism to romanticism.

Jane Austen never married although it has been rumored that she got into several love affairs during her life; the most popular one was with a man that the fictional character Mark Darcy is based on in Pride and Prejudice.

Fe filim called "Becoming Jane" that portrays Jane Austen's love affair with the "real Mark Darcy". Anne Hathaway plays Jane (tamtheelha shwaya bad bes 3adi el filim is good)...

Jane Austen died from Addisons Disease o ygooloon ina ili 7abita tezawaj o sama benta 3alaiha ...


----------

"Elizabeth, having rather expected to affront him, was amazed at his gallantry; but there was a mixture of sweetness and archness in her manner which made it difficult for her to affront anybody; and Darcy had never been so bewitched by any woman as he was by her. He really believed, that were it not for the inferiority of her connections, he should be in some danger."

Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen
