    Frankly I’m pretty convinced that every single fan of the sweeping classic Pride and Prejudice should watch The Lizzie Bennet Diaries videos then read this companion novel and vice versa as you prefer itPride and Prejudice is as I very likely may have mentioned it before my most loved classic and my not having had the chance to peruse them all means absolutely nothing This contemporary retelling did it justice on every aspect Even the writing is formidableThe relationships between characters are the gist of the story basically You know that if you’ve read the classic It’s not about the mystery what mystery? the secrecy the romance or the setting It’s about the sisterhood and interactions between sisters it’s about the momma bear who wants the best for her children it’s about seeing with hazy eyes and than admitting we were wrong from the start trusting blindly and learning from our mistakesIt’s so beautiful So raw So relatable Don’t tell me you’ve never ever misjudged someone That can’t be possible Because we’re humans I know I have The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet is the type of contemporary I could and want to always read There’s family drama a slight touch of honest and pure romance and humour to keep everything lightened up making this a than pleasurable readCan I just end this review by saying that the person who had the idea of retelling my favourite classic through videos and a diary novel is a genius? Also thank you I’ve enjoyed myself so so much with both of these creationsAlso thisGet him ;

    1 If you haven’t read Pride Prejudice what are you doing with your life?2 If you have read Pride Prejudice but you haven’t watched The Lizzie Bennet Diaries what are you doing with your life?3 If you have read Pride Prejudice and watched The Lizzie Bennet Diaries hurray Now read this bookhttpsemmareadstoomuchwordpresscoGod I love PP I have a strange fascination with romance novels and rom coms for that matter because very freuently I feel nothing when I’m reading them But Pride Prejudice is not in that group Its better adaptations aren’t either and The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is totally one of the better adaptationsThe concept is essentially a modern day retelling with Lizzie Bennet as a grad school communications major creating video diaries based on her life Darcy owns a digital tech company as does Ricky Collins Bing Lee okay the name feels a little much for me but hey is a trust fund med student Catherine de Bourgh is a venture capitalist Charlotte is a fellow grad student and the video diaries’ editor Lydia is a party girl and Jane is ridiculously kind too kind for a realistic character if you ask me Kitty is a literal cat and Mary is a cousin It’s all so funIt doesn’t always work though Jane Austen is subtle as was the web series in its own way yes the videos are fully from Lizzie’s perspective and her status as the “prejudice” leads to broad stroked renderings of events but there is still that certain surprise at Darcy’s interest and all the miscommunications The book finds a lack of the subtlety one could argue the videos have in excess In attempting to hint at Darcy’s interest in Lizzie and explain how it seems Jane could be uninterested in Bing it makes both entirely too clear What’s the fun in that?Still I’m struck by how clever this retelling is It doesn’t want strangely for a lack of a traditional Kitty and Mary in the household the grad school format works well and the Ricky Collins plotline is full on genius The series totally deserved all of its lauding and the book is a fun read for those who have and haven’t seen it Still I recommend watching the vidsBottom line all my Austen holics out there go to YouTube and search “lizzie bennet diaries” You’ll be so happy you did Everyone else become an Austen fan stat

    One of my favorite things about the Lizzie Bennet Diaries was Lizzie’s voice In Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice we don’t get first person narration from Elizabeth but we do in the webisodes I thought Lizzie’s voice was opinionated funny and relateable right from the start so when I heard that there was going to be a book out I was really excited to hear of Lizzie’s voice Me upon being reunited with Lizzie I loved getting a detailed look at Lizzie’s life and seeing things that didn’t happen on camera We get a closer look at her school including her New Media teacher we get conversations with Lizzie’s dad who is a lot like her and of course we get new scenesMy favorite scene out of this book was the scene where Lizzie Darcy and Gigi are touring San Francisco I remember being sad that we didn’t get to see it on video so it was really fun to read about it We’re given LizzieDarcy interaction and the San Francisco setting was really cool Something else that I enjoyed about the book was that when you compare the videos to Lizzie’s diary Lizzie can be an unreliable narrator which makes for some humorAnything else I say is going to spoil it so I’ll just stop thereCynical Cindy SaysSomething I was really disappointed in was that there were a few pivotal scenes that were written in “transcript” format instead of 1st person Lizzie and I really wish that I could’ve known what was going on inside Lizzie’s head Without the actors or Lizzie narration I felt those important scenes fell flatIn short If you’re a fan of the Lizzie Bennet Diaries then you should definitely read this book And maybe rewatch the episodes while you read Because believe me you’ll be all This review was originally posted on Alice in Readerland

    45★I was expecting the book to be the You Tube clips transcribedI was pleasantly surprisedIt's a behind the scenes look like Pride and Prejudice than the You Tube diaries wereLast year I read Eligible A Modern Retelling of Pride and Prejudice which I found cynical cold and full of deeply unlikeable characters In contrast the characters of this book have warmth heart and the modernisation is believable Normally I hate short chapters but in a journal form this is acceptable it wouldn't be believable any other way My only uibble is view spoiler I think this Darcy is rich reasonably famous Someone would have told him about Lizzie's vlog as soon as this vlog became well known hide spoiler

    Absolutely fantastic A must have for any Lizzie Bennet fan If you want detail behind the scenes information insight into Lizzie's head then this is the book for you The Secret Diary Of Lizzie Bennet takes you into the world of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries with her characteristic humour and snark and perspective on the world and the events that go on around her You don't even necessarily need to watch the video series to love and enjoy this book because it follows that classic story Pride and Prejudice If you're looking for depth to the videos and a chance to really hear the voice of Elizabeth Bennet in a modern setting then this is definitely a book you should check out If you just love Pride Prejudice then you should still check this out and see what you think I'd consider it a modern retelling with a lot of humour and love


  8. Melindam Melindam says:

    If you are a Pride and Prejudice fan like modern re tellings and haven't watched this web series check it out immediately on youtube or at pemberlydigitalcom is all I'm sayingIn a way I was lucky because by the time I learned about it myself in 2014 the show was over so I could binge watch all episodes And boy did I love them allThe book offers some further insight to the videos and I loved it though I expected some extras concerning Lizzie's feelings interactions with Darcy There it fell a little short of expectations but still great funThe audiobook read by Ashley Clements is delightful


  9. BookLover BookLover says:

    I’m a bit back and forth on this one in my mind I love all things Jane Austen and while this wasn’t as good as the original obviously I for the most part enjoyed it The hard part in a “fan fiction” type adaption much the same as a seuel telling the same story but from an alternating point of view is the challenge to hold a reader’s interest I mean it’s not like there are going to be any significant surprises I pretty much know what is going to happenIn this book I often found myself I don’t want to say bored because that’s too strong a word less engaged? But even knowing the general direction of the story it was well written and had enough differences to keep me engaged to the endI listened to the audio book version of this book and I have to say the narrator did a great job portraying Lizzie Bennet I laughed a lot throughout this book and much of that humour came in the way the narrator delivered the sarcastic dialogueI really enjoyed the adaptation of each of the characters with the exception of Darcy This version of Darcy sadly was a big FAIL for me A modern day stiff speaking I mean really who speaks like that? snobby hipster? I don’t think so I still imagine Darcy as Colin Firth portrayed him and this version held zero appeal for meStill good read
