Book Review: Pride and Prejudice

This week’s book is Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.  Yes, we are looking at a classic today.  At first, I thought I wouldn’t even review this book, I have been on a classic novel reading streak lately but I didn’t know what else I could add to any review that has ever been done on this book.

Then, I realized, I can add the perspective of a psychic.  How about this – what if all the characters in this book could actually read each other’s auras.  What if they could tell what another person’s character was like based on what their aura colors revealed.  Now, that would change the entire social dynamic of this book – and the world as we know it.

Most of the drama that comes from this book is from people not telling the truth or not just stating how they feel.  There is way too much pride going around and all this pride leads to prejudice – hence the name.  But, what if you could read the aura of the other individual – suddenly you don’t have a reason for that pride because you know your own faults are out there in the open for all to see.

Interesting concept, right.  How about if I tell you that some New Age literature suggests that in the next couple of generations, the ability to see auras may be commonplace.  Now that adds another layer to life as we know it!  What if I told you that the idea of telepathic communication may just be a couple of hundred years away.  Something to think about right!

Really, the likelihood of you already picking up thoughts and ideas telepathically is probably pretty high – you just don’t realize it.  If you are a mother and pay attention to what your children say, you may even realize that sometimes they read your mind – asking for something when you just thought of how you were going to hide that something from them.  I know my daughter and I have this type of relationship where I have to “guard” my mind against things I don’t want her to know…like where my candy stash is!

So, if we change the whole dynamic of the world we live in – of the world Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy live in – then the novel would be completely different – but so would our lives.

And, as a side note, if you want to listen to a great audio production of this book, audible has it available with Rosamund Pike as the narrator and it is excellent!

What do you think – have you ever had an instance where it felt like you or someone else read your mind?  What would a world be like where this is commonplace?
