#71 — Eligible: A Modern Retelling of Pride and Prejudice

A Modern Retelling of Pride and Prejudice by Curtis Sittenfeld
Rating: 3/5
  • True to the title, the book is a faithful retelling of the classic
  • I’m all too familiar with the characters — I grew up in the midwest, attended private schools there, and lived in NYC for the past 10+ years– either way, I was annoyed rather than charmed by the characters, which made me wonder if some early readers of Pride and Prejudice were similarly annoyed with Lizzie and company when the book first came out
