I can’t believe my English teacher is making me read Pride and Prejudice!
Why not! It’s a classic; in fact, it’s one of my favorite novels.
But it’s so old.
Don’t judge a book by its cover. Do you kwon what it’s about?
No, not at all.
First of all, it’s a romance novel, set in the early 19th century.
I didn’t realize it was a romance novel. What’s the main storyline?
It’s basically about a father who tried to marry off one of his five girls.
Why does he want to do that?
Since he doesn’t have a son, he hopes that one of the girls will marry a wealthy man. That way, all of his daughters will be cared for.
Won’t they get his inheritance?
No, that’s the problem. Though they are well-off, once he dies, his house will go to his cousin. So, when he dies, the girls will have nothing.
I see. This sounds interesting! Maybe my teacher isn’t so horrible after all.
So ,are you going to read the novel or watch the movie?
There’s a movie? My teacher didn’t tell me that!
That’s probably because she wants you to read the book first.
It would take a lot less time…
How about this? When you finish the book, I’ll get the movie and watch it with you.
OK. That sounds like a deal.
