Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

The Lizzie Bennet Diaries creator Su and series writer Rorick do a fantastic job of translating the Emmy Award–winning web series into novel format…This book hits all the high points of Austen’s most famous novel in satisfying ways (Darcy’s confession, Lydia’s bad choices), while updating it for the digital age.” Publishers Weekly
“In this modern-day retelling of Pride and Prejudice, narrator Ashley Clements brings all the iconic characters to life…While this is a humorous retelling, the characters are true to the original story, and Clements does an admirable job of keeping the spirit intact.” AudioFile
