Acting Up- Melissa Nathan

Another name for Pride and Prejudice set in today’s world. From the word go we already know where the story is headed. Entirely predictable and impossible to even remotely compare to the original. I know all around us authors and others are adapting classics to fit into the present mindset of readers and society but to have your leading man to be in a play which is an adaptation of the novel and then having their everyday lives emulating the novel to the tic becomes very very tedious to read.

Pass this one up and instead curl up with Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice on a couch, near a window – to happily dream of Darcy walking in on you unexpectedly and completely sweeping you off your feet.
