As one of the most memorable novels worldwide, “Any man in possession of a large fortune must be in want of a wife” is the opening line of the classicPride and prejudice by Jane Austin (1813).

The chemistry between Mr Darcy and Miss Elizabeth does not grow until the end of the book, which could be considered as an outcome of Austen's writing style.

Her novel has a very calm tempo, e.g, the conversations and reflections between the multiple characters, at times, extend over several pages.

The plot could leave a quite monotonous impression to the reader indeed, but never once does the language do so.
