While Pride & Prejudice is a beloved classic, it’s a bit outdated in some of its situations. So, it’s always interesting (and often fun) to read how authors modernize this story.
In My Opinion….
In the re-release of Debra White Smith’s First Impressions, Eddie (Smith’s version of Lizzie Bennett) and Dave (AKA Darcy) butt heads from the start.
The events in this story happen in a bit of skewed timeline from the original, but it works. And all the important (favorite) encounters are there. Dave’s friend and Eddie’s sister are attracted to each other, unwanted attention from Connor (Mr. Collins’s counterpart), the duplicitous man who reveals his true self by the end. It’s all there.
