Jane Austen’s beloved heroine Lizzy Bennet tells the story of Pride and Prejudice in her own words in an illustrated diary created by Marcia WilliamsWhen Lizzy Bennet’s father gives her a diary she fancies she will use it to write a novel as her real life is exceeding. This illustrated book for young readers relates the story of Pride and Prejudice for a tweenyoung teen crowd or those who have only seen and enjoyed the 2005 movie The endpapers show maps of Longbourn and Pemberley The authorillustrator seems to have drawn on the inaccurate 2005 film for Longbourn The Bennets don't keep pigs in their yard and they can't even see the farm and livestock from the house Mr Bennet isn't a farmer That's just my first complaintThe illustrations are cartoony Everyone has exaggerated features I'm hoping the illustrator modeled them after Cassandra's illustrations in The History of England I really don't like how unattractively even Jane and Lizzy are depicted I do like how Lizzy has pasted in feathers and ribbons and other objects into her diary and I also like seeing the embroidery pattern she has designed for Papa's new waistcoat I did not enjoy this adaptation of the classic novel While it's funny it's not satirical The whole story has a rather flippant silly tone This Lizzy comes across nearly as silly as her younger sisters Lizzy is too seriously enad with Wickham Charlotte suggests Lizzy marry Col Fitzwilliam if she doesn't marry Darcy this is not possible and he even tells her so in the original novel Lizzy thinks a lot about clothes hair dancing men and how awful her family is Jane is wise than in the original but still uick to forgive Much of the story and the nuances get lost in the adaptation for young readers I would just as soon as not give this to my nieces and wait until they're old enough to understand and read the real thing The language even in this version is too difficult and the context of the story too watered down to explain to a tween This version is for adults who may be reading to babies who won't understand it anyway
