Book Review: The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet

The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet

          The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet is a companion to the web series The Lizzie Bennet Diaries which is a modern adaption of the book Pride and Prejudice. This is one of the first books that i read that comes from a webseries and it was very entertaining. i loved the characters of Lizzie, Lydia, Jane, Bing,Darcy, and Fitz. I've watched The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and it had me addicted to it. It was a great modern adaption of P&P and it made me understand the characters more in terms of their emotions and their reactions. In P&P, it's a little difficult to understand why the characters react a certain way because of the time period that it's set in. In the LBD, it is clear why the characters react the way they do because it is translated well to modern day. i relate to Lydia in being the youngest and sometimes you're not included in certain things that you wish you were or family leaving for a while.
Lizzie, Darcy, Jane, and Bing were amazing, it was really great to get a deeper look into the relationships especially the things that were kept out of the videos. Now, rewatching the series, i get why the characters reacted in a certain way especially Jane when it came to her relationship with Bing. i also watched Lydia's videos and now having watched the series and read the book, i understand her more now and it's really sad to see that she was hurting and her sisters didn't notice it.

Overall, my rating for this book is 5 stars and i can't wait to read the sequel starring Lydia. :)
