Is Pride & Prejudice still a required reading text in high school? It was when I was in school, and it seemed like the longest book in the history of mankind. And I even love reading, but I have to admit, I enjoyed the classic much more as an adult than I did in high school. (Bonus: I also didn’t have to write a report on it or be tested on it, as an adult, so there’s that… lol)
Now there is a humorous, much easier way to read the old classic. Introducing emoji Pride & Prejudice! From the back cover:
What would happen if the characters of Pride and Prejudice could text each other? Would Elizabeth call Mr. Darcy a [poop]? Would Bingley ghost Jane? Would Mrs. Bennett accidentally “reply all” and ruin everything? Would Darcy drink and dial and accidentally reveal his true feelings [heart]? In this laugh-out-loud re-telling of Jane Austen’s famous work, you’ll get a condensed modern interpretation of the world’s greatest love story . . . all told through texts and emojis. Featuring hundreds of classic and new emojis along with a removable poster (featuring all the emojis), this is the perfect gift for the Austen lover.
As you can see, Ms. Austen “sent from my iPhone”, the entire text of the book. I think it’s probably a good thing that she screen shot all those conversations!
And from reading some of the conversations, not much was too different back then compared to today:
You cannot read through this book with laughing . This is probably not one you’d want to read in, say, the library, as you might get a stern warning from the librarian about being quiet, or in a public place where people may look at you like you’ve totally lost your mind since you’re sitting there, by yourself, laughing till you cry!
This would make the perfect gift for a teen or adult, and the price is just around $9.50 so it won’t break the bank.
You can purchase this book at Amazon or your favorite book store or big box retailer.
