11 Novels For 'Pride & Prejudice' Fans Who Want More Modern (And Diverse) Takes On The Classic Tale

It is a truth universally acknowledged that only in an overachieving Indian American family can a genius daughter be considered a black sheep. Up-and-coming chef DJ Caine has known people like Trisha before, people who judge him by his rough beginnings and place pedigree above character. A man who has never felt at home anywhere. And a choice to be made between the two. Pride and Prejudice retellings abound. This is hardly surprising: it is after all one of the most beloved, most well-read stories in Western history.

11 Novels For 'Pride & Prejudice' Fans Who Want More Modern (And Diverse) Takes On The Classic Tale

Classics are called such for a reason, but what happens when someone decides to take one and retell it in a new way? Pretty amazing things, or at least that's what happens in this collection of the best Pride and Prejudice book adaptations. Even if you're a die-hard fan of the original novel, you'll delight in these creative reimaginings, I promise. Out of all of Jane Austen's novels, Pride and Prejudice is the most beloved and widely read. With the help of a fierce, bookish heroine, a timeless romance, and witty social critique, the romantic classic is compulsively re readable. Filled with vivid imagery, vibrant characters, and beautiful language, it's the kind of story you can get completely lost in over and over and over again. And now, with the countdown on until Bridget Jones's Baby September release , it's officially time to revisit some of the best Austen adaptations, because Helen Fielding isn't the only author who has taken on this iconic story.

The puzzling rarely lets me down, even if the story does. In an odd bit of readerly timing, I recently read three Pride and Prejudice retellings back to back. The first two were coincidental, and then I decided I might as well go for the trifecta. Have you read any of these? What are your favorite Pride and Prejudice retellings? I enjoyed Unequal Affections, which you recommended.

Maybe it's the setting of the book, all warmly-lit reading rooms and misty walks through lush green landscapes.

Lizzy Bennet is asked to deal with the devil, one Will Darcy, the man who dumped her in their college days. He's back in Meryton and set to meet with her father, but Lizzy doesn't want his help. She's all work and no play. But Darcy wants to change h er life around. His sister, his cousin, and Lizzy's family have their own ideas about mixing business with pleasure.

Here are some of our favorite recent-ish works that bring the tale of Lizzy, Darcy, and the others into a wide variety of different settings. When she meets the handsome Khalid, she surprises herself by being attracted to someone so judgmental. When a surprise engagement is announced between her flighty sister and Khalid, Ayesha is torn between how she feels about the straightforward Khalid and his family; and the truth she realizes about herself. But Khalid is also wrestling with what he believes and what he wants. Replacing the Regency with rural Pennsylvania, and upper-class English culture with that of the Amish, the author covers the same issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage within the Amish community as Austen discussed in her work. In this gender-swapped take we find Darcy Fitzwilliam: 29, beautiful, successful, and brilliant. Luke is years-old and has never left home.
