Customer Review

on 7 April 2000
I've re-read Pride and Prejudice many times and the reviews and description of this book made it sound like a clever and novel adaptation. After reading it however, I was left feeling very disappointied. The imitation of Jane Austins story is, overall, clumsy. At times you get the distinct impression that the author was simply casting around for any equivelent event, however unrealistic. I found it fairly difficult to believe, for example, that the nation would really be that interested in the fairly mundane life of Jasmin's married sister Josie. Equally many of the characters were one-dimensional and appeared to exist for the sole purpose of providing an equivelent to the original story. The lead character of Jasmin in particular was a very poor imitation of Elizabeth Bennett, lacking much of her charm and wit. Instead she came across as arrogant, self obsessed, aggressive and fairly unlikeable to be honest. Whilst Pride and Prejudice has you rooting for Elizabeth and Mr Darcy to get together, I have to say that as I approached the end of this book I was just counting the pages to see when it would finish.
