Darcy Swipes Left
Darcy Swipes Left | Jane Austen, Courtney Carbone
27 posts | 13 read | 28 to read
"Pride and Prejudice, " one of the greatest love stories ever told . . . in texts?! Imagine: What if Lizzy Bennet and Mr. Darcy had smartphones and dated IRL (in real life)? A classic is reborn in this clever adaptation of Jane Austen s "Pride and Prejudice"! A truth universally acknowledged: a rich guy must want a wife. A terrible first impression. A couple that s meant to be . . . if they can just get over themselves. #hatersgonnadate Don t miss: Lydia taking selfies with soldiers, Mrs. Bennet s humble-brag status updates, Lizzy texting from her long walks, and Darcy swiping left on a dance card app. tl;dr Jane Austen s most famous novel told through its characters texting with emojis, posting photos, checking in at locations, and updating their relationship statuses. The perfect gift for any teen (or any reader with a sense of humor)! A glossary and cast of characters are included for those who need it. For example: tl;dr means too long; didn t read."

#PrideAndPrejudice #StarWars #ReyLo

My younger sister found this meme where someone compared Pride and Prejudice to Star Wars, specifically Rey and Kylo Ren to Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy. Love it!

It‘s P&P, but in space!

LibrarianRyan Love it! 3w

Yep, it's pretty silly, but it's also fun & often funny. A quick and easy read that put a smile on my face. If you love P & P and are open to seeing it modernized into texts you will probably enjoy it too. 📚👍😆

Lunch is Sunday's soup leftovers & this fun but fairly silly seeming book I got on sale + coupon & a gift card with other P&P things that arrived when I was in the hospital that I'll show later. Still working back into normal life, & reading & Litsy. Yesterday was follow up appointments much of the day, today I made a solo pharmacy & grocery store run, 😀👍tomorrow's an early follow up with the lung doctor...trying to rest & fit work in-between.😬

Super quick read. Goofy modern take on ‘Pride and Prejudice‘. It‘s silly and I‘m glad I didn‘t pay full price for it but glad I read it none-the-less.

LibrarianRyan @thegirlwiththelibrarybag I read the Romeo and Juliet one and as a literature lover it was horrible but as a retellings in a modern "language" it's okay. It hits the major points and I think could help Hi-los get interested and better understand shake sphere. @BethM 2y

thegirlwiththelibrarybag I don‘t particularly think that Shakespeare needs to be ‘understood‘ or even read - watched live is the way to go! 2y
LibrarianRyan @thegirlwiththelibrarybag in a perfect world watched live is the way to go. However where I love that is not possible. A combination of travel time and poverty are extremely large hurdles. 2y

I've been married for 29 years. I only know what swiping left means because I watched Single By 30 on YouTube Red. But I'm always ready to add to my Jane Austen Collection. 💑 #OmgImSoOld

This book was a lot of fun! 💃🏽It's always fun to revisit P&P in different formats but they all make me want to go home and watch all 6 hours of Colin Firth and Jennifer Ehle.

This was just plain fun! If you like Pride and Prejudice, this is a short version of the story. Quirky and enjoyable.
