The Story of Lizzy and Darcy

Ealise how they really feelThe Story of Lizzy and Darcy is a modern day same sex adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudic Okay for this book is hard for me to review because for the first 200 pages I loved it I thought it was a smart and interesting retelling of PP that managed to translate the age old story into good modern terms But then it started to lose itself Some of the things I loved Lizzy She s such a great character Sisters Jane and Lizzy So important The way the Bennet family as a whole was translated Jane and her gap years Sander and his dramatics Mark and his uietness How ueer an unapologetic about it this book was I mean really the representation here was truly excellent and I was a fanSome of the things I was disappointed by After Lizzy and Charlotte moved to London their friendship was no longer of any plot significance I also don t think the translation of the CollinsCharlotte romance worked very well How abusive friendships were dealt with This is a triggering topic for me but I was cautiously optimistic about how this book would handle it It didn t handle it well Which was a real bummer The entire Wickham storyline I thought that by translating Lydia into Lysander Watson would perhaps talk about some of the shame young men can bring on families when they impregnate women or perhaps are even accused of sexual misconduct Watson decided to go down a different route and honestly I don t know if that was a good idea Just because Lysander was a boy doesn t mean that Georgiana had to be turned into a boy tooI think this book disappointed me partially because of the expectations that I brought to it but also in all honesty it was a very good debut novel and I want to give Watson credit for that Brenda has a dragon in her blood of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudic Okay for this book is hard for me to review because for the first 200 pages I loved it I thought it was a smart and interesting retelling Divan Of Rudaki of PP that managed to translate the age Choice Stories for Children old story into good modern terms But then it started to lose itself Some Öbür Divan of the things I loved Lizzy She s such a great character Sisters Jane and Lizzy So important The way the Bennet family as a whole was translated Jane and her gap years Sander and his dramatics Mark and his uietness How ueer an unapologetic about it this book was I mean really the representation here was truly excellent and I was a fanSome Summary of Homo Deus of the things I was disappointed by After Lizzy and Charlotte moved to London their friendship was no longer Koldbrann - parte 1: Rebeldes of any plot significance I also don t think the translation The Teams Milking Cow of the CollinsCharlotte romance worked very well How abusive friendships were dealt with This is a triggering topic for me but I was cautiously A Wolfs Desire Reluctant Mates optimistic about how this book would handle it It didn t handle it well Which was a real bummer The entire Wickham storyline I thought that by translating Lydia into Lysander Watson would perhaps talk about some Via Suez (British): Blue Funnel Line (Merchant Navy Series Book 3) of the shame young men can bring Zenith on families when they impregnate women A Pale Light in the Black or perhaps are even accused Devil Versus Alpha The Millennium Wolves of the expectations that I brought to it but also in all honesty it was a very good debut novel and I want to give Watson credit for that

When Lizzy Bennet first meets Darcy Williams there is an instant dislike between them As much as they try to avoid it their paths Ignore the awful cover and the lame title and the weak cover copy And when you get that far ignore the mediocre copy editing I know that s a lot to ignore but if you do your reward is one of the better Pride and Prejudice tributes While PP is one of my favorites or because I don t go out of my way to find tribute stories That s because too many authors forget to let the characters breathe and you end up with a story that is either too rigidly adherent to the details of the original or one that goes out of its way to differentiate against it It s seldom that you get a nice balance of recognizable structure but with bits and pieces that are their own beautiful thing Watson manages that and I was glad to enjoy itSome of my favorite innovations Charlotte and Collins being a weirdly compatible love match George Wickam s predations being non sexual but still as damagingly corrupting Pembroke and Rosings the related publishing houses MaryMark s weird vibe being less socially and internally damagingPeople will probably glom onto the lesbian pairing as the innovation but I think that mainly served as a way to give the author permission to make her own changes Which is a good thing because the romance worked pretty much as it shouldIt s not all roses though The drama tended to be drawn out a little long for my taste And the Bingley and Jane timing didn t ring true three months in a modern context didn t really work And I couldn t help feeling like Watson was dipping pretty heavily in the LGBT bag and having a lot of coming out that wasn t helped by the uniform affirmative reactions And the Wickam plotcounter plot was rather tediously drawn out on screen even beyond the drama extension mentioned aboveStill this is a solid four stars for all of that I enjoyed the lead characters and their friends and family worked pretty well as both stand ins for their originals and yet remain uniuely their own So good work I thinkA note about Chaste Also true to the original and in an excellent way this story culminates with the pledge of love and devotion and then ends So there s a kiss and that s pretty much all So another excellent feature and very well done
