Pride & Prejudice in the 21st Century

I’m going to say this once to get it out of my system: I am a HUGE Pride and Prejudice fan!

That being said, I want to introduce all of you to something that I stumbled across while in the library. Which by all means is a weird place to find a youtube video but nonetheless. When I picked up the copy of “The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet”, I had no idea that it would lead me to one of the greatest video blogs of ALL TIME!

Seriously, this is one of the most brilliant pieces of art/fan fiction/fiction that I have ever seen. Follow the modern version of Lizzie Bennet and her sisters (in this case, only 2 of them) as they meet Bing Lee and William Darcy. It includes all the best pieces of the original novel, including the crazy mother, disinterested father, loving best friend, and complicated relationships between the siblings.

If you’re not completely addicted after the first episode, then you must not fully appreciate Austen in the same manner that I do. Happy watching!
