    1 thought on “Prom and Prejudice

    1. So I m going to write my own version of a Jane Austen book It s going to be called JANE AUSTEN ZOMBIE TERMINATOR.It s going to be about how Jane Austen rises from her grave and hunts down all the people who write terrible, terrible sequels and retellings of her book She s then going to go all Carrie on them and kick their ass The End Karen wrote something in her review of Ash that I think would be very applicable to Prom and Prejudice as well She says, Fairy tales are generally symbolic stories [...]

    2. Absolutely adorable Any one that knows me knows that my all time favorite book is Pride and Prejudice, so when I saw that Prom and Prejudice offered to retell that story through teenagers, I plucked that book from the bookshelf quicker than Caroline Bingley could snatch a couture dress from the designer s hand.Lizzie Bennet is one of two scholarship kids going to an all girl school, and unfortunately on the wrong end of permanent hazing by her less than thrilled rich classmates So it s not surpr [...]

    3. Agh SO CUTE.I love PP retellings Just love them And this one did not disappoint me It was cute, funny, relatable with great girl friendship and romance which will make your heart melt It s definitely a light and adorable read to cure your book hangover with If you re interested in a bit darker PP retelling I whole heartedly recommend First Then I gave it 5 stars,yaay But this one is really great and I loved reading about Longbourn Academy and Lizzie s adventures If you guys have any PP Persuasio [...]

    4. This book is amazingly thought out As a fan of Pride and Prejudice who has watched and read many of its adaptations, I loved this one and I would absolutely recommend it to other fans I loved how the plot is changed to work in today s world The whole prom issue is very similar to marriage in the era PP was written, so everything else seemed to work perfectly I could see so many similarities in the story that I was basically marvelling the whole time and it was awesome The characters are pitch pe [...]

    5. Ok, this Pride Prejudice retelling was actually totally adorable and well done The plot was trimmed down to only the necessary events and characters poor Kitty is always the first to go and all of the high schoolers were thankfully not annoyingly cliche teens.Lizzie Bennet is a scholarship student at Longbourn Academy, Jane is her roommate, Lydia is Jane s little sister, Darcy and Charles go to Pemberly Academy, etc There were a few small changes and additions to the story, but they really only [...]

    6. This is pretty much a retelling of Pride and Prejudice, it has nearly the exact same plot The names are the same for the main characters and they have the same personalities There are notable differences though It is set in modern day, in an elite bordering school, they are younger, and Lizzie doesn t have sisters Jane is her friend instead of her sister The biggest problem I had with this was that some things where hard for me to swallow I mean why would you throw milk at someone you don t even [...]

    7. There is something about the way Elizabeth Eulberg writes that speaks directly to me I loved The Lonely Hearts Club and I absolutely LOVE Prom and Prejudice First of all, it is a modern take on Pride and Prejudice, one of my favorites Second, Lizzie, is a concert pianist who plays Rachmaninoff Perhaps some of you don t know who Rachmaninoff was watch the movie Shine, you will understand what the Rach 3 is after that To me is is one of the best piano composers ever His works are extremely difficu [...]

    8. Everyone knows something about Pride and Prejudice , even if it s only fragments of a plot or character they ve gleamed from a TV show or internet review or Googling pictures of a dripping wet Colin Firth The iconic story of social standings, misunderstandings and the oft imitated Lizzie and Mr Darcy has had an indelible impact on literature at large, particularly YA and romance two genres which are heavily entwined The chances are that you have seen or read at least one version of the story, be [...]

    9. This book is a very confused Jane Austen adaptation, so confused that I d question whether the author actually understood the book If you re going to do an adaptation where you name all the characters with the same name from the book and plagiarize whole passages speeches by just translating them into simpler English, then at least don t mangle the main characters or the whole point of it For instance Lizzie a depressive shrew who hates all the rich kids around her except for her friend Jane.Dar [...]

    10. This was a cute idea Take the characters from PP, and put them in an elite boarding school setting.It mostly worked, too.It was a decent YA take on Jane Austin s classic, but don t go into it expecting everything to be the same as the original For starter s, Jane and Lizzie are BFF s not sisters Lydia is Jane s younger sister, and the remaining Bennet girls get axed from the story altogether.Which was fine with me, cause they added the least to the overall plotAlso notably missing is the mamma d [...]

    11. I approach any re telling of Pride and Prejudice with a lot of caution Why Because it s one of my Go To Books You know those books they are the ones that you read over and over again for comfort, predictability and to re capture that moment of that did NOT just happen But what Elizabeth Eulberg did with Pride and Prejudice makes me want to shout things like perfect and brilliant and go, run, buy it now In Prom Prejudice, the protagonist, Lizzie, is a girl in a very elite boarding school and she [...]

    12. Awww este libro es tan hermoso Es una historia de amor tan linda y tierna Me ena de Darcy, es perfecto Puedo casarme con este libro, por favor

    13. I have read a lot of retellings of Pride and Prejudice one of my absolute favorite books Some are okay some are downright dreadful Somewhere, Jane Austen s gotta be rolling in her grave at the sacrilege some people have committed regarding her works.Now, let me say this Prom and Prejudice is my new favorite retelling of the beloved classic Elizabeth Eulberg perfectly balances the fresh and modern with the classic and original to create a surprisingly delightful tale Predictability is often a pro [...]

    14. Prom Prejudice is exactly what it sounds like Pride and Prejudice meets high school and prom dates As far as retellings go, this book was pretty much a page by page parallel No surprises, no twists, no alternations just a change of setting.Reading wish fulfillment fiction intended for an audience you don t belong to is like being the only sober person on a very drunken party weird and not fun There was no truth, no life in this book just catering to the dreams of highschool girls So, ten years a [...]

    15. I REALLY enjoyed this modern day Pride and Prejudice story The author did such a great job of transposing both the characters true to their original characterization and the story events to a New York high school setting It was a fast paced, enjoyable, engrossing, believable story Highly recommend, even for teens, as it was very clean and moral, where the bad guys reap the consequences of their actions.

    16. Super cute YA Pride and Prejudice re telling I really liked the main characters and all the big moments from Pride and Prejudice that I expect to see in a re telling were represented The only thing I didn t really like was the reason behind Elizabeth being bullied at school It was so shallow and not very realistic If you like YA and Jane Austen re tellings I think you will definitely enjoy this one.

    17. A cute, and interesting retelling of a classic The characters were very likeable, the pace was easy to follow and writing was downright enjoyable If you loved the original, this version of the story is going to be a delight Especially if you love the whole young teenage love where it starts from hate and eventually blooms at a captivating stride I loved every moment of it.

    18. So excited that the release date got moved up This wasn t supposed to be out until January.It was strange Normally, when I read Pride and Prejudice I am siding with Elizabeth the whole way In this case, Elizabeth Eulberg gave us Darcy s perspective so well that I was mad at Elizabeth instead Will Darcy was completely swoon worthy That being said, Prom and Prejudice was a light happy read with Pride and Prejudice as its skeleton You ll recognize most of the characters from Pride and Prejudice wit [...]

    19. This book was adorable.Right now, I can t get enough of Pride Prejudice modern retellings.There were certain things that I wish were explored a bit , but the plot was all about the basics of Lizzie s life and that made this a quick, fun read.And there was plenty Darcy, which is always a plus If you are a fan of YA contemporaries or love modern Pride Prejudice retellings then I recommend you give this cute book a try

    22. I m a HUGE Jane Austen fan Pride Prejudice is my favorite so I was excited to read this modern day retelling by Elizabeth Eulberg A few pages in a burst into laughter as I realized all the characters in the book places in the book were named after those in the original book Lizzie attends Longbourn Academy, Darcy attends Pemberley Academy their places of residency in the original Pride Prejudice Nearly the whole cast of characters was present from Lizzie, Jane Lydia to Darcy, Charles, Caroline, [...]

    23. 4 CUTE STARS Bewitched me, body, soul and my funny bone LOL And i love, i love this book I had a great time reading this modern interpretation slash ret telling of Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen one of my all time fave classic novel and the best love story of all time I m a super duper big fan of Pride and Prejudice It was a decent Young Adult contemporary take on Jane Austin s classic A few pages in a burst into unstoppable laughter The name of the characters and the setting i enjoyed this [...]

    24. Drop what you re reading and pick up Prom Prejudice right now I usually don t write reviews books for days or even weeks after I ve read them I just don t feel inspired I only finished PP two hours ago, but I cannot stop gushing about it I just had to write my review as soon as possible I enjoyed Elizabeth Eulberg s first book Lonely Hearts Club, but wasn t blown away I don t know if I ve changed or she s changed, but she came up with something really special with Prom Prejudice The book is simp [...]

    25. I ll start off by saying I haven t read any Jane Austen novels I d never read Pride and Prejudice nor had I watched the movie or mini series I know, I m living in the Dark Ages But I m happy to announce that as soon as I finished reading Prom and Prejudice, I dashed to youtube, watched a trailer for the PP movie, swooned, and hurried to find a copy of the movie the next day Which I curled up and devoured You have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you Oh swoon Seriously, why [...]

    26. Sometimes I hate writing reviews for books that I love because I know I cannot do them justice, but I m going to try because in my opinion this is a must read I find myself falling into the stereotypical category of a girl who, when asked her favorite book and author, answers without hesitation, Pride and Prejudice and Jane Austen I even wrote my senior thesis in college on Miss Austen s classic, so it s safe to say that if I still love P P after that nightmare semester and assignment that nothi [...]

    27. Unlike the majority of girls who attend Longbourn Academy, an elite and expensive all girl prep school, Elizabeth Bennet is not wealthy, not high society, and not obsessed with prom As a scholarship student, Elizabeth is a social pariah Each day she has to face taunts, pranks, insults, and seclusion But instead of dwelling on her lack of friends and acceptance, Elizabeth spends her time maintaining a satisfactory grade point average, working at Java Junction, and practicing the piano As you can [...]

    28. I like this so much better than her first book The Lonely Hearts Club , but I guess that isn t say much, seeing as how I couldn t even finish TLHC because I was THAT BORED I probably wouldn t have bothered to read this book excepte title was Prom and Prejudice I m a sucker for anything Pride and Prejudice related I couldn t resist I appreciated all of the PP references, but naming the boys school Pemberly and having the characters speak like they were from the 1800 s just didn t fit It made the [...]
