If ever there was a Jane Austen variation that was fabulous, this is it. I've read (and reviewed) quite a few of them but this is so very very good. Now I sound gushing!
Liz and Jane along with all the Bennets in a very modern setting. I doubt anyone could get more modern than IVF, lesbian relationships, transgender marriages etc but the basic Pride and Prejudice story comes shining through.
Bingley and Darcy and Caroline are all there, all very modern characterizations but nothing detracting from their original states and this is what made it wonderful reading.
A riveting read, quite a long story, unputdownable. I had to finish it in two days reading putting aside work and everything else.
Storytelling at its best.
