    Delightful.

    What an utterly delightful book. Leave it to Sittenfeld to adapt Pride & Prejudice in such a compelling, funny, and masterful way; I honestly can't get over what an intellectual treat this novel is! A true pleasure to read, and it comes with my highest recommendation. Enjoy :)

    Absolutely fantastic! Well written. Hard to put down. A perfect modern day equivalent to Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice".

    This has to be one of the best Pride and Prejudice re-tellings I've read. The Bennet family is perfect, set in their ways and determined to go about as usual. Mr. Bennet is priceless. His dry wit and off-hand humor was amazing and spot on. In fact, all the characters were portrayed in a way that kept true to the original, but still updated them to our contemporary time. Liz and Mr. Darcy - the classic romance - can definitely hold its own in a contemporary settings. The tension, the fights, the misunderstandings, all laid out perfectly for the modern times. I loved their interactions and banter. The "hate sex" was a great addition that really portrayed their relationship well. I think I desperately need to go and read the rest of The Austen Project series. If they are as good as this one, I know I'll be in for a good time.

    Pure Entertainment

    This was pretty entertaining. I enjoyed noticing each way that the author made the characters modern and different from their original counterparts. The father was a hoot for sure. The author did a great job of fitting all the drama from the current era.

    Spoilers ahead

    I was excited to read this book. While this series can never live up to the originals I found the Northanger Abbey rewrite really fun and Emma entertaining if shallow. And then I was given an Elizabeth Bennet who reminded me more of Kate Winslet's character in The Holiday (even down to the name of the spineless user writer she was inexplicably in love with) than the witty, family loving Lizzy of one of my favourite books. Despite my disappointment with Elizabeth, I love the basic story well enough that I kept reading. And then came a steady trickle of homophobic which ended in a river of transphobia. [[serious spoilers ahead]] instead of a gambling, drinking womanizer who callously destroyed their daughter's life, Sittenfeld split Wickham into two parts: Elizabeth's loser-user Jasper and Lydia's crossfit trainer boyfriend whose "crime" was being trans. An "affliction" apparently so terrible that Elizabeth needed to fly home to sit around unhappily while her father and kitty rush off to "save" Lydia from the "horrendous" future of being married to a man she knows is trans. Really Sittenfeld? You're rewriting an incredibly well known book plot point for plot point, you couldn't just have made him an addict/alcoholic/gambler/layabout or some combination thereof?
