"As he walked away, Beth abandoned the higher road in favor of a greasy back alley."
Beth Pride and William Darcy started off on the wrong foot. Quite literally, at a charity ball. Things only go down hill from there. When her college roommate starts dating his best friend, Beth and William are thrown together more than they'd prefer. Sure, he's cute, and successful, but he's also rude and makes her angry and tingly all at the same time. As they spend more and more time together, will Beth regret her initial reaction to him? Maybe William's not that bad...but how do you get past first impressions and infuriating actions?
My Opinion: This was a cute modern version of the original classic. There were some interesting changes and interpretations to make the story more contemporary. However, while the author gave it a modern twist, I felt lost a few times on how things correlated to the original story. The book seemed to meander through the storyline, much as the original does, but without the excitement of not knowing what will happen as we all know the original. I also felt that some of the aspects of the story didn't make sense, such as the strict college rules without any particular reason for them. Overall the characters were cute, and though Darcy wasn't as aloof as Austen made him, he had a good heart. Overall, it was a fun read, but lacked a little umph to put it over the top for me.
I received a free copy of this book to review. No other compensation was given. The summary and review are 100% my own.
