#1. Price and Prejudice - by Jane Austen (Fiction & Literature)
Jane Austen's much beloved classic never fails to make our hearts flutter. Witnessing the novel's bright and independent heroine Eliza Bennet melt the heart of the cool, aloof nobleman Mr. Darcy is a wonderfully satisfying experience. Adversaries at first in the endless rounds of balls, parties and social gatherings, they soon develop a grudging respect for one another that blossoms into romance when each comes to appreciate the tender feelings that course beneath the veneer of their propriety and reserve. Full of warmth and wit, Pride and Prejudice reminds us that sometimes we need to overcome our preconceptions in order to find love.

The actions shifts back and forth between Moscow, the city of the people, and the decadent St. Petersburg; and shifts from royal ballrooms to brutal battlefields.
