Teen Book Review: Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Pride and Prejudice may be an old story, but it is still on our shelves for a reason! The story has all the excitement that comes when love and family matters collide with the charm of England from long ago. The story focuses on the five Bennet sisters as they navigate the customs of English society in the early1800s. Elizabeth Bennet, who is the main protagonist, is prejudiced against the arrogant Mr. Darcy for his pride. Their complicated relationship lies at the heart of the story.

The language can be difficult to read at times, but the adorable, if somewhat frustrating, story is worth the read. Austen’s subtle commentary on society’s pride and prejudice is clever and adds another layer to the story. Pride and Prejudice is a great book to read if you’re looking for a classic and a love story.

Teen Book Review: Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck

Teen Book Review:

The book Mice and Men is about two guys that are friends and are always together. Their names were Lennie and George. Lennie was kind of special he was a slow learner, which made him appear dumb. Lennie was sometimes a bother to George and he always got them into trouble. Lennie is a big guy and he sometimes is careless.  He got in some big trouble when a lady accused him of raping her. But, all was not true because Lennie just touched the lady’s red dress because he wanted to feel it. That caused them to run away and find a new job. They found a job, but what was to come there way was going to change their lives forever.

The book Mice and Men was a good book. It was an entertaining book, even though sometimes you found yourself confused throughout the story. Each character in the book was important even if that character just came out rarely throughout the story. Each character had a dream, which was fun to see in the end if the characters achieve their dream in the end. The end of the story was sad and can change your perspective from some of the characters. But overall the book was interesting to me.
