Das ist der Grund, warum »Stolz und Vorurteil« zeitlos ist und heute genauso lesbar wie vor zweihundert Jahren – wie quick alle Werke Austens (1775–1817): Sie spricht existentielle Fragen jedes Menschen, besonders jeder jungen Frau an.

Im Jahre 2003 startete der britische Fernsehsender BBC eine Abstimmungsaktion, um eine Liste der hundert beliebtesten Bücher Großbritanniens zusammenzustellen. 750.000 Menschen beteiligten sich. »Stolz und Vorurteil« landete, hinter »Der Herr der Ringe« auf Platz Zwei.
