Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld

Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld
Continuing with my Jane Austen modernization theme (I was on vacation after all), here is one I highly recommend…

Now I realize that the story of Pride and Prejudice has been done and redone multiple times, but trust me this one is worth it. I found myself wanting to hurry up and read just so I could find out how the events in the original novel would be incorporated. It is a masterful adaptation of Pride and Prejudice complete with the modern struggles a family of females may face and characterization that is spot-on. Perhaps even more intriguing is the way Sittenfeld tackles and incorporates the class struggles facing the Bennett family in our modern, high-tech society. Above all this is a highly enjoyable read. Four stars from me. Give it a go! Happy Reading!
