Recommended for: Pride and Prejudice fans

My rating: 4 /5

My thoughts:

What happens when you take a famous scene from an incredibly popular novel and change it up? Abigail Reynolds does just that in this Pride and Prejudice variation novel. This is the story of what would have happened had Lizzy said 'yes' when Mr. Darcy proposed the first time.

There where times that I wanted to shake Lizzy for being so stubborn & Darcy for being so tactless. They do not lead a happily ever after from the beginning, but then did you ever expect that of them? They play games, there are misunderstandings and it was fun to see the relationship develop. There is one steamy scene included (which of course I happened to be reading on my train ride home from work) so just be forewarned! Abigail's love of Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice shines through. This was an easy, fun read that I would suggest to all P&P fans.


  1. I love all things pride and prejudice. Thanks for the heads up on this one!

  2. This sounds interesting, but I feel sad to say I have never read any of Jane Austin works. I've tried a bit with Emma. There's so many new variation to her novels these days. Great review!!

  3. I love Pride and Prejudice; I'll definitely have to check this ous! ;-)

  4. I'll have to check this one out. I got a huge kick out of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Have you read that one yet? ;)
