The Man Who Loved Pride and Prejudice (4.5/5)

The Man who Loved Pride and Prejudice (4.5/5)

Calder and Cassie's love story begins very much like Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth's does. This modern take on Austen's classic is just different enough to keep readers interested in it in its own right. Calder is from a rich family and Cassie is a biologist from a somewhat different upbringing. The two meet, connect, disconnect and overcome obstacles.

Reynolds has a good writing style and keeps true to Austen's themes. She develops characters that are well developed and interesting. Readers will care about these characters, even with their flaws.

As a huge Austen fan, I enjoyed this book and thinks it gives proper homage to a classic. This was my first book by Reynolds but I would read more of her work.

I received this book from Sourcebooks for review.
