My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
This is a MM version of Pride and Prejudice so if you’ve read the original, you know what’s going to happen here.
I was pleasantly surprised though by the clever twists on the characters to make them fit into this new narrative and I think overall it worked well.
The pace is quite slow though, and it was a while before we got to the meat of the story and I have to say, I don’t have the same feeling with the source material so I’ve knocked a star off for that.
It also felt quite a bit more angsty than the original and didn’t have quite the same wry humour as Austen did poking fun at Georgian society.
But, taken together, this is a great retelling of a classic.
