characters The Story of Lizzy and Darcy

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

The Story of Lizzy and Darcy

Keep crossing and they each start to see a different side to the other Their tentative friendship is soon tested but will they r. This is a great debut novelI remember reading this book way back in high school when I hated everything that even looked like a book so I only remembered the major story lines Reading this however brought it all back I find it really difficult to rate this book As much as I tried seeing it simply as a standalone novel I kept comparing it to the original so here goes nothingFirst off I thought the author really captured the original Darcy s character I remember thinking what a pompous prick this person was and the same was true in this version As for Lizzie though I don t remember her being such a martyr and constantly blaming herself for everything that goes wrong in her familyWhat really surprised me in a good way in this version were the added topics of being a lesbian bisexual asexual aromantic and even trans you name it and this book has it Though these topics were not a large part of the story it was nice to see them even being mentioned and they did not distract at all from the major story lineIf there is one point of critiue I have it s that I would have liked to see interaction between Lizzie and Darcy Towards the end of the book there was just so much drama going on with Lizzie s brother that it really distracted from their story Overall the author did a great job turning a classic piece of English literature into a modern day ff retelling of a story that has millions of fans If you never read the original Pride and Prejudice give this version a try

Ealise how they really feelThe Story of Lizzy and Darcy is a modern day same sex adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudic. This is an absolutely adorable and well done ueer modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice that wins a lot of diversity bingo Our dear Lizzy is an out and proud lesbian Darcy a mix raced bisexual woman The secondary characters feature a trans and an ace character So Lizzy just finished university and has her internship at Rosings publishing house already planned and is ready to move to London with her bestie Charlotte when Darcy and Charly Bingley move into Netherfield Court You all know the basic plot of PP but suffice it to say that Darcy is leading her own publishing house albeit smaller than Rosings It s been years since I read PP but I ve watched the 1995 BBC adaption many times in between and I have to say this is one of my favourite treatments of the original including The Lizzie Bennett Diaries We all know that Lizzy is eually as uick to judge Darcy as Darcy is of Lizzy and her family but they both show substantial amounts of growth over the course of the book and seeing their romance unfold was done very will imo In this universe Lizzy has twin younger brothers instead of younger sisters so the Wickham storyline plays out differently than in the original which is also well done All in all I enjoyed this immensely and if Jane Austen retellings are your jam don t let this one go by

    This was a rewriting of Pride and Prejudice as a modern gay romanceI thought it was pretty well done I liked how she updated the characters Instead of being just rich the rich people were business people and the sisters were mostly turned into
