  • I think it would have been a much better book if the author had been a bit looser with the plot

      TRUSTWORTHY

      This book is quite closely based on Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, practically mirroring it in some situations, as well as adding in a play that is being performed - an adaption of Pride and Prejudice. There isn’t really a strong plot in this book,

      because a lot of the characters and the situations are twisted around so as to fit into Pride and Prejudice but in a more modern way.

      This makes things like Wickham’s behaviour towards Fitzwilliam Darcy’s sister (in the Jane Austen version) turn into something more ...


      • egregious in this book, which actually makes the book seem a bit fake.

        And instead of letters, they communicate by email.

        For much of the book, I don’t really understand why any of the characters do what they do, or why it is important that

        they do what they do.

        I kind of think it follows Pride and Prejudice too closely.

        The dialogue is good and the main character is good.

        I think it would have been a much better book if the author had been a bit looser with the plot.
