****4/5 stars- loved it

Eligible is a fabulous modern adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, on point and on trend too.

Recommended readers:

  • If like Pride and Prejudice but also chic lit
  • if you like contemporary romance
  • and if you identify with having a large, crazy family

Here’s my Rankings:

  • 4/5 for characters
  • 4/5 for plot
  • 4/5 overall


Now available, Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld is a fabulous, fun and witty translation of what Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice could be like in modern times. Sittenfeld sticks close to the famous classic by keeping the same characters and adding modern twists to the plot, utilizing current issues and trends from transgender and reality TV, to Crossfit and the Paleo Diet. It’s so cleverly done. The appeal may be more geared toward the chic lit or general contemporary romance reader – rather than the die-hard Jane Austen classic fan – but Eligible is a fun, fast and clever read for anyone. And if you have some Pride and Prejudice memories, that will make it even more fun to read and compare.
