6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Ceri at Babblings of a Bookworm on 24 Jun. 2014
Format: Kindle Edition
Some time ago the Austenesque world was abuzz with something new – a series of YouTube videos telling an updated version of Jane Austen’s Pride & Prejudice. I was sceptical, but I started on episode 1 and had a marathon watch-a-thon until I’d caught up. The Lizzie Bennet Diaries (or LBD, as many people shorted it to) moved the Bennets to modern-day California. The family consists of lovely sweet Jane, our somewhat snarky heroine Lizzie and the energetic younger sister Lydia. Lizzie is studying mass communications for her masters degree and is making a video diary as part of her degree. Like thousands of others, I tuned in twice a week for a 5-ish minute video with an insanely catchy theme tune, and caught up with a snippet of Lizzie’s life.

I thought this was such a clever series. It’s one thing doing a modern update; I’ve read plenty of those, but this also had to work within some limitations. Firstly, the perspective is quite limited – these are Lizzie’s videos and very much seen through her filter. Secondly, the videos were being posted online from the outset, which some people know, and others find out throughout the course of the videos. Some characters we don’t see in person, and Lizzie does some ‘costume theatre’ to play their roles, which I found really funny, particularly her interpretation of her mother, complete with hat. There was also content in other platforms, such as twitter accounts of the characters that you could follow etc. Although obviously modernised, the main story points of Pride & Prejudice were all identifiable in the events the videos report.

When I heard there was a book of the LBD I wondered if it would bring anything new to the table, or whether it’d be the same as the videos but just in book form.

Witty, clever, and very, very fun.

I wasn't sure, originally, whether there would be any point in reading a novelization of the webseries, since after all the series was based on a different book (one I've re-read SO many times) - but I was wrong. This is done so well, and it's so much more than a novelization of what happens in the webseries. It's actually a major expansion, with tons of other stuff going on behind the scenes, and it's made me start a new re-watch of the webseries with that extra info in my head. Now I'm enjoying the series even more! And I enjoyed this book so much. I think it could stand on its own even without having read the webseries, and I looooove the explorations of friendship, sisterhood and more. (Charlotte was my favorite character in the book! Her friendship with Lizzie is probably my favorite arc in the book, too.) Also, I laughed out loud at a couple of bits!

This is definitely my favorite literary Austen remake, and if I weren't giving my copy to a friend (because I know she'll love it too), I would absolutely read it again.

*I received a copy of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to Touchstone and NetGalley*

This book is a companion to the YouTube series that follows the life of twenty-four-year-old Lizzie Bennet, a grad student, while living at home with her parents and two sisters Jane and Lydia. Lizzie makes videos about her life for her thesis and becomes a YouTube celebrity.

This book is the perfect companion to the videos - it gives us an insight into Lizzie's head and includes details that weren't included in the videos.

Overall this was an enjoyable read that I would definitely recommend to fans of the YouTube series.

Really enjoyed the web series and this is a great accompaniment. I read it quickly when it first arrived and will be reading it while rewatching the videos in a month or so. The dates in the entries will make it easy to watch and read concurrently. It adds an extra dimension to an already excellent retelling of my all time favourite book.

Being a big fan of the web series, I waited in eager anticipation for this book. And I was not disappointed! It is wonderful, and the perfect companion to the series. I highly recommend it to fans of the series, or just Austen fans in general.
