    "This book is hilarious. I couldn't put it down and I laughed my way through it. I can identify with Bridget so much and I needed to read this book so badly to get me out of my funk. Helen Fielding has done an outstanding job and I can wait to see the movie now..... and then maybe I'll even read the book again!"

    "This book makes the classic Pride and Prejudice relatable for the current generation, adding in social media and papparazi. The dialogue is very natural and believable, even when the overall situation is not. It differs a little from the original, but the underlying theme is there, and would be a good way for a reluctant teen to still live a little bit of the D'arcy romance."

    "There have been many adaptations of different types of Pride and Prejudice books, all of which usually relate back to the original book released by Jane Austen. Any modern Pride and Prejudice book usually entails the characters and ideas from the original Pride and Prejudice but with an added twist. This one here uses P&P as a vault to move their ideas into actually starring in a play adapting the book. "

    "What's old is new again. This updating of the classic Pride and Prejudice works pretty well if you're in the target demo. It's not unversially praised as great, but it's rarely hated either, so it's a very solid offering in the genre."

    "While I liked Pride and Prejudice, I didn't like this book at all. The overarching themes behind the book are quite similar but this is just done very poorly. Of course not many can compare to Jane Austen, but this is a really below average work."
