Pride and Prejudice
A book that could be put in place of pride and prejudice is Hamlet. A Classic novel written by William Shakespeare! The type a language it uses is very similar if not the same.
Noone like predictable books and movies :)
I maybe be saying this because im a guy and this is a love story. The only valuable lesson it is teaching is the language. There are probably a ton of other books that would be better for both guy and girls. Otherwise i would just go watch "The Notebook'
