book ï Lizzy Bennets Diary É Marcia Williams

Ly dull Then the handsome Mr Bingley moves to nearby Netherfield Park and suddenly life is every bit as thrilling as a novel would be Who will he dance with at the Meryton ball Who is his haughty friend Will Lizzy ever receive a marriage proposal Readers will have to read A very cute concept but it does not do justice to Austen This is a children's book and is adorably laid out with drawings flower pressings and letters that the reader can open The issue is that the way the diary is told is too shallow Certainly Lizzy goes into her feelings and opinions about different characters and events but it often makes her sound rude overbearing or conceited I understand this is meant for kids so you cannot go into the intricacies of the actual text but I wondered while I was reading this what child would pick it up The language is still like Austen's so it may be hard for the average young reader to get into Overall I am too defensive of Pride and Prejudice and thus have a hard time ceding control of the story to other writers For a beginners text it is fine I would certainly give this to a child who is a little advanced and into diaries or historical fiction
