Although very close in storyline to the original, this P&P variation manages to bring a fresh perspective to the tale of Darcy, Lizzie et al. Largely, by attributing original dialogue to different characters and slight changes in plot, the book manages to keep the feel of this classic tale. A few Americanisms creep in, as they often do with these books, for example, I cannot imagine any Englishman, today or in Georgian times, ever using the phrase "peace, cuz" when calming his cousin down. But otherwise this is a good example of an entertaining and well written Variation. Recommended.
