Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld

If you are a devoted fan of Jane Austen’s works, this modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice might offend you. Sittenfeld is described as “wickedly entertaining” by the New York Times, and I found her version very wicked indeed. While the author captures and updates the satirical commentary about society’s morals and regulations that make Austen such a fascinating read, the excess of alternate lifestyles and explicit behavior in most of the characters will be a turn off for most Austen fans.
