  Pride and Prejudice (1813) by Jane Austen  
Jane Austen
It is probably fair to describe this book as Jane Austen's most popular novel something which may have been encouraged by the many film and TV adaptations of this classic text.
The story centres on the love story between Elizabeth Bennett and Darcy, and the will they won't factor of these two seemingly mismatched characters. But it is also a biting satire of early 19th century marriage market.
