Eligible: A modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice, by Curtis Sittenfeld

25852870

This novel has many of the elements I liked from the original P&P, but the overall tawdriness of the contemporary setting took a lot of the joy out of the story for me. Everyone is sleeping around, there is a reality show involved, it was just all so dreary it was hard to find the happiness that Liz and Darcy find together. A real disappointment.
