For today’s challenge, we encourage you to write a review of a book you’ve read during the readathon (or recently) and publish it where other readers make their purchasing decisions (e.g., Amazon, Goodreads, etc.). Be sure to share it with us in the comments below or on social media.

Thanks to J. Lenni Dorner for today’s challenge

My review is on goodreads:

So much fun for retelling. I really enjoyed it and I think anyone else who loves a good pride and predjudice retelling will to.
Pride and Prejudice is Austen’s look into the absurdity of the time with a touch of humor.  Such as, Mrs. Bennett’s obsession in finding wealthy husbands for her girls and the posh society of the Darcy’s that many a fortune hunter aspires to. Eligible is a tribute to this very well known story while still being a very fresh take in its own right.

Although, I did find fault with some of the story. I think the author while trying to be original was maybe a little two politically correct. I just found that trying to hit all the social issues in the world was just too much for one family, even the Bennett’s.
