“My dear”, said Mr Bennet, “if a sock puppet with a trust fund and a Harvard medical degree moved here, you’d think he was meant to marry one of our girls.”

In this retelling of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice the story takes place in modern America. Mr Bennet is having heart surgery and the family gathers at home all together for the first time in years. Mrs Bennet’s quest for husbands for her daughters is ever ongoing and she seizes the moment and takes all her daughters to the Lucas family barbeque. She wants to introduce her daughters to the new doctors, eligible bachelors, Dr Bingley and Dr Darcy.  

But the road towards a happy ending is full of obstacles. Jane Bennet entering a dating reality show for Dr Bingley is just one. Curtis Sittenfeld has succeeded in creating an engaging and entertaining story of a beloved classic.
