This was a fun and light hearted ode to a classic. It was totally worth it to hear a modern take on the Bennett sisters.

I don't think I could finish this book if my life depended on it - the (audio) reading is off-putting and the story is worse. I was hoping for a serendipitous find since there is a line-up to get Pride and Prejudice - line ups to get most audio books. But don't settle on this - discover the real Miss Bennetts (even if it's for the 10th time!).

I regret that I will not know Sittenfeld's other stories because this one has turned me off. The plot and character alterations are predictably trendy and the language is ordinary. The best part is that it makes me want to read the original again.

Obviously, it's not a true adaptation from Pride and Prejudice, because the author definitely took liberties in recreating the characters and morals of the two eldest Bennett sisters. I found the writing to be crude and crass and utterly boring. Basically I consider it junk food reading.

All you serious Pride and Prejudice fans! No need to get your knickers in a knot. Relax. It's all so funny. The Bennet sisters transported to Cincinnati circa 2013, their fertility in a free-fall and not an eligible man in sight. What pray tell will happen?

One small complaint is Sittenfeld's teeny, tiny chapters. I think they numbered close to 200. I actually like this technique when reading a hard copy but not so much when the the audio is interrupted every few paragraphs with a new chapter announcement
