Роман, неподвластный ходу времени. Поразительное по глубине, психологизму и изящному, прозрачному лиризму повествование о судьбе молодой женщины и ее нелегкой, полной неуверенности, ошибок и сомнений любви, это произведение выдержало испытание вот уже несколькими эпохами и не утратило своего искреннего очарования. С тонкой иронией автор рисует портреты «уездных» девушек, мечтающих о замужестве и гоняющихся за наследством, почтенных матрон, себялюбивых и эгоистичных красоток.
Идут годы, однако «Доводы рассудка» были и остаются золотой классикой мировой литературы и продолжают поражать воображение новых поколений
Более двух столетий не ослабевает читательский интерес к романам Джейн Остин. Основоположницу реализма в английской литературе, основательницу "дамского романа" даже в XXI веке никак не назовешь старомодной, поскольку мода проходит, а Остен остается. Дамскими романами нынче никого не удивишь, за всеми не уследишь, а вот за хорошей литературой в этом жанре - лучше уж обращаться к первоисточнику. Еще Вальтер Скотт, первый ценитель произведений Джейн Остин, восхищался ее изобразительным даром, тонким и глубоким пониманием человеческих отношений, блестящими ироничными диалогами, наследующими драму.
В семейных романах Джейн Остен - всегда счастливый конец, свадебные колокольчики и венчание... При этом здесь не находится места слащавости и иллюзиям - автор отдает себе отчет в жизненных реалиях, великолепно использует свой природный дар наблюдения и склонность к анализу, всегда держит про запас иронические средства и пародийный слой. А главное: героями Остен являются не только люди с их многогранными характерами, но и их ключевые чувства, похожие на сообщающиеся сосуды.
Привычное перелистывание страниц, режимы день/ночь, автоподбор шрифта под размер экрана, оглавление и поиск сделает чтение объемного и непростого произведения максимально комфортным. Текущая позиция всегда запоминается и делает чтение удобным - в любой момент, в любом месте.
Though the story is set at the turn of the 19th century, it retains a fascination for modern readers, continuing near the top of lists of 'most loved books' such as The Big Read. It has become one of the most popular novels in English literature, and receives considerable attention from literary scholars. Modern interest in the book has resulted in a number of dramatic adaptations and an abundance of novels and stories imitating Austen's memorable characters or themes. To date, the book has sold some 20 million copies worldwide.
The plot of the novel is driven by a particular situation of the Bennet family: The Longbourn estate where they reside is entailed to one of Mr Bennet's collateral relatives—male only in this case—by the legal terms of fee tail. Mr and Mrs Bennet have no sons: this means that, if Mr Bennet dies soon, his wife and five daughters will be left without home or income. Mrs Bennet worries about this predicament and wishes to find husbands for her five daughters quickly.
The narrative opens with Mr Bingley, a wealthy young gentleman and a very eligible bachelor, renting a country estate near the Bennets called Netherfield. He arrives accompanied by his fashionable sisters and his good friend, Mr Darcy. Attending the local assembly (dance) Bingley is well-received in the community, while Darcy begins his acquaintance with smug condescension and 'proud' distaste for all the country locals. After Darcy's haughty rejection of her at the dance, Elizabeth resolves to match his coldness and pride with her own prideful anger—in biting wit and sometimes sarcastic remarks—directed towards him. (Elizabeth's disposition leads her into prejudices regarding Darcy and others, such that she is unable to 'sketch' their characters accurately.)
Soon, Bingley and Elizabeth's older sister, Jane, begin to grow close. Elizabeth's best friend, Charlotte, advises that Jane should show her affection to Bingley more openly, as he may not realise that she is indeed interested in him. Elizabeth flippantly dismisses the opinion—replying that Jane is shy and modest, and that if Bingley can't see how she feels, he is a simpleton—and she doesn't tell Jane of Charlotte's warning.
On an invitation from Bingley's sister, Miss Bingley, Jane pays a visit to the Bingley mansion. On her journey to the house she is caught in a downpour and catches ill, forcing her to stay at Netherfield for several days. In order to tend to Jane, Elizabeth hikes through muddy fields and arrives with a spattered dress, much to the disdain of the snobbish Miss Bingley. Miss Bingley’s spite only increases when she notices that Darcy, whom she is pursuing, pays quite a bit of attention to Elizabeth.
Illustration by Hugh Thomson representing Mr Collins protesting he never reads novels.
Mr Collins, the male relative who is to inherit Longbourn, makes an appearance and stays with the Bennets. Recently ordained a clergyman, he is employed as parish rector by the wealthy and patronising Lady Catherine de Bourgh of Kent. Mr Bennet and Elizabeth are amused by his self-important and pedantic behaviour. Though his stated reason for visiting is to reconcile with the Bennets, Collins soon confides to Mrs Bennet that he wishes to find a wife from among the Bennet sisters. He first offers to pursue Jane; however, Mrs Bennet mentions that her eldest daughter is soon likely to be engaged, and redirects his attentions to Elizabeth.

Before she began the novel, Austen wrote, "I am going to take a heroine whom no one but myself will much like." In the very first sentence she introduces the title character as "Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich." Emma, however, is also rather spoiled, headstrong, and self-satisfied; she greatly overestimates her own matchmaking abilities; she is blind to the dangers of meddling in other people's lives, and her imagination and perceptions often lead her astray.

P G Wodehouse was an English humorist, whose body of work includes novels, short stories, plays, poems, song lyrics and numerous pieces of journalism.
Wodehouse, popularly known as Plum, wrote over ninety books, winning worldwide acclaim. He spent the last decades of his life in the United States, becoming an American citizen in 1955. In 1975, he was created a Knight of the British Empire and he died on St Valentine's Day in the same year at the age of ninety-three.
An acknowledged master of English prose, Wodehouse has been admired both by contemporaries such as Hilaire Belloc, Evelyn Waugh and Rudyard Kipling and by recent writers such as Stephen Fry, Douglas Adams, J. K. Rowling, and John Le Carré.
"Wodehouse's idyllic world can never stale. He will continue to release future generations from captivity that may be more irksome than our own. He has made a world for us to live in and delight in"
- Evelyn Waugh
I have always wanted to introduce and increase the awareness about the works of Wodehouse among younger generation and this app is born out of this labor of love. Initially, I wanted to compile only novels but, I decided to include several of his short collections as well, because, it is in these short stories you can catch Wodehouse at his best.
For those who have been fans of his work, the app promises hours and hours of re-reading pleasure. For those who will be reading the master for the first time, this app will give them a chance to get into a joyous new world !

Charles Dickens ( 7 February 1812 – 9 June 1870) was an English writer and social critic. He created some of the world's most memorable fictional characters and is generally regarded as the greatest novelist of the Victorian period.During his life, his works enjoyed unprecedented fame, and by the twentieth century his literary genius was broadly acknowledged by critics and scholars. His novels and short stories continue to be widely popular.
Born in Portsmouth, England, Dickens left school to work in a factory after his father was thrown into debtors' prison. Although he had little formal education, his early impoverishment drove him to succeed. Over his career he edited a weekly journal for 20 years, wrote 15 novels and hundreds of short stories and non-fiction articles, lectured and performed extensively, was an indefatigable letter writer, and campaigned vigorously for children's rights, education, and other social reforms.
Dickens sprang to fame with the 1836 serial publication of The Pickwick Papers. Within a few years he had become an international literary celebrity, famous for his humour, satire, and keen observation of character and society. His novels, most published in monthly or weekly instalments, pioneered the serial publication of narrative fiction, which became the dominant Victorian mode for novel publication. The instalment format allowed Dickens to evaluate his audience's reaction, and he often modified his plot and character development based on such feedback.For example, when his wife's chiropodist expressed distress at the way Miss Mowcher in David Copperfield seemed to reflect her disabilities, Dickens went on to improve the character with positive lineaments.Fagin in Oliver Twist apparently mirrors the famous fence, Ikey Solomon;His caricature of Leigh Hunt in the figure of Mr Skimpole in Bleak House was likewise toned down on advice from some of his friends, as they read episodes.In the same novel, both Lawrence Boythorne and Mooney the beadle are drawn from real life – Boythorne from Walter Savage Landor and Mooney from 'Looney', a beadle at Salisbury Square.His plots were carefully constructed, and Dickens often wove in elements from topical events into his narratives.Masses of the illiterate poor chipped in ha'pennies to have each new monthly episode read to them, opening up and inspiring a new class of readers.
Dickens was regarded as the literary colossus of his age.His 1843 novella, A Christmas Carol, is one of the most influential works ever written, and it remains popular and continues to inspire adaptations in every artistic genre. His creative genius has been praised by fellow writers—from Leo Tolstoy to G. K. Chesterton and George Orwell—for its realism, comedy, prose style, unique characterisations, and social criticism. On the other hand Oscar Wilde, Henry James and Virginia Woolf complained of a lack of psychological depth, loose writing, and a vein of saccharine sentimentalism.
