A silly and fun retelling of a beloved classic. I enjoyed it, but felt like they leaned too far into the emoji/text shorthand and some of the classic characters were lost in the process.

What if Jane Austen's characters had lived in our times? LOL's ensue as OMG moments play out via smartphone and social media.
It helps to know the original book, but as far as adaptations go, this is hilariously good.

Told through texts, emojis and status updates is the classic story of Pride and Prejudice. Told in a way that captures the younger generation's attention by writing it in a way that is familiar to them.
This is the second one of these books that I have read now. Although I really liked the writing style, I didn't like the story it followed, but if you're a fan of the original, definitely give this one a go too! Rating 2 out of 5 stars.
