4.5 stars! Charming and fun! A great retelling that is both social satire and romance as was the original and is more generous with many of the characters including Sherry-Charlotte, Annie-Anne de Bourgh, Qitty-Kittie. And made me hungry for Pakistani food!

One meta-issue was that at some point I wondered when Alys would realize she is living the very story she knows so well. It seems unlikely that it wouldn’t occur to her at some point given the names of the people in her life so closely paralleling those of Austen’s P&P. It still worked though!… (més)

3.5

Delightful retelling of a familiar story: Pride & Prejudice. Enjoyed the dynamics of a big bunch of sisters and did a lot of googling of Pakistani fashion terms while reading.

A very enjoyable retelling of P&P (excellent on audio). The story sticks very close to the original plot so if you're looking for new plot twists you'll be disappointed. Great to read a book set in Pakistan that's fun and light.
