Six Degrees of Separation with Jane Austen's book, Pride and Prejudice.
We begin here.
Cozy Classics: Pride and Prejudice by Jack and Holman Wang, Jane Austen
Speaking about accessible,
this board book summarizes the whole classic down into twelve words:
friends; sisters; dance; mean; sick; muddy; yes?; no!: write; read; walk; marry.
Think about it. These words pretty much sum up the story.
Bridget Jones's Diary by Helen Fielding
This was the first Pride and Prejudice retelling I ever read. It remains a favorite in that genre. It is set in modern times, with modern themes.
Emma: a modern retelling by Alexander McCall Smith
This is the only book on the list I haven't read yet. It is the third book in the Austen Project, started a few years ago, each of Austen's novels were rewritten by modern, popular authors.
Emma by Jane Austen
That brings us back around to Jane Austen, the original author and the genius of six classic novels set in the Regency period in England. None have gone out of print or out of favor. Emma, thought as her second most popular books was published in 1815. This is her only novel where the heroine has plenty of money and time to be involved in trivial pursuits like match-making.
