Eligible: A Modern Retelling of Pride and PrejudiceEligible: A Modern Retelling of Pride and Prejudice by Curtis Sittenfeld
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

In this Pride and Prejudice retelling we have the Bennets and their neighbours moved to modern day America. With Jane at 40 and Lydia at 23 years old with the other sisters in-between.
For me it just doesn't work moving the story away from the Regency period. The story just doesn't have the same impact.
I didn't really like any of the characters apart Mary, which I suspect I wasn't suppose to considering how she was portrayed.
A NetGalley book.
