Pride and Prejudice
The definition of a classic novel would be a novel of perfection that never loses it's qualities throughout the years.
The reason my novel is a classic is because it was written a long time ago and almost everyone has read it and learned useful things in life from it.
The reason this novel is so valuable today is because it still teaches each one of us important lessons in life and things we need to face
The reason that is novel might be a little irrelevant for today is because it is outdated and some people might find it unusual how things have been handled, mostly looking a marriage.
I wouldn't really recommend it to any of my friends because it is hard to understand and could be boring at times, but it's a great novel and definitely the one that has to be read in a lifetime.
