I liked the story, and the shojou art really works well with it. The highly stylized shining eyes, and lacy backgrounds, and flowers can be a little much at times.

I loved how well this book captured the feel and tone of the original. It was obviously never going to be as comprehensive but it captures all of the important events. This is definitely a great adaption for people who love the original or are looking for a different way to read it.

I liked the manga too. Especially the kiss scene with Darcy and Elizabeth and the moment Mr.Bingley proposed to Jane and the wedding scene.

this almost-comic-like novel is way better illustrates than just reading[read as: skimming ;-) ] the less exciting book. I loved how the characters looked and actually felt like real people! Manga classics are the best!!

Easily my favourite of Jane Austen's novels - and quite possibly my favourite book of all time. I have always preferred character-driven novels over plot-driven ones (which is not to suggest that this novel lacks plot; it has plenty).
Elizabeth Bennett is an eminently lovable and relatable heroine (as is her sister Jane). Even the characters who are clearly intended as comic relief are developed enough to feel like real people.

So good! It made the book really funny, I liked how they made the characters look. It was easy to read, and not very confusing, which was good. I would really recommend this.

This translated well into the manga style, and King stuck to the original story plot to make a straight adaptation.

I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it.
