Unequal Affections: A Pride and Prejudice Retelling

A re-telling of “Pride and Prejudice” examines the question of what would have happened between Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy if she had accepted that first proposal at Rosings. Darcy knew that he loved Elizabeth at that time, Elizabeth knew that she did not love Darcy. Would they both come to realize their errors, their own arrogance and pride? Would each of them be willing to change who they were for the other?

This year I have been reading a lot of takes on “P&P”, books from Darcy’s perspective, book about what would have happened had Darcy and Elizabeth not met again after that first proposal and I really enjoyed “The Lizzie Bennet Diaries” vlogs that were done online this past year. This rendition of P&P was well done and in the end, everything you loved about the original was brought back, just in a different way.

Due out in October 2013, Unequal Affections is a good read for any Austenites out there.

*****W.W. Norton provided me with a free eCopy of this book in exchange for an honest and fair review. I was not compensated in any way for either a negative or positive review
