  • A great introduction to Jane Austen for the Twitter generation.

    by on

    I know there have been a bazillion Pride and Prejudice retellings since Ms Austen introduced us to the fiery Elizabeth Bennet and the brooding Mr. Darcy. There is something about the story and their chemistry that gets me all excited every time I read a new version. I know the plot and obviously know how the story ends and yet I return to this same tale over and over again.

    It was no different in this case, with Bernie Sus The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet. You have the outrageously interfering mother; sweet, angelic Jane; the irresponsible Lydia; charming George Wickham etc etc. However this time, the story is set in California, current day and amongst the world of mass social media.

    Lizzie Bennet is undertaking her post-graduate degree in mass communications. She lives with her parents and two sisters in suburbia, spends a lot of time with her BFF Charlotte, and has decided to document her final year on YouTube. Things start getting interesting when a handsome and single medical student, Bing Lee, moves into a McMansion in town, along with his mysterious and snobby friend William Darcy.

    This book is based on the popular YouTube vlog of the same name. I must admit I hadnt seen the videos before reading the book, but have now watched the first 13 episodes. The videos are fun, and probably work better then the book. It introduces the P&P story to a whole new generation and you find comments like Wow, that George Wickham seems so nice! Ummmmm.

    Overall I enjoyed The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet, but I wouldnt say it is my favourite retelling. That honour still goes to Bridget Jones, and as likable and witty as Lizzie Bennet is, she is no match for the weak willed and neurotic Miss Jones.
