    3 1/2 stars It is a truth universally acknowledged that when someone adapts Pride and Prejudice, I will read the crap out of it?no matter how bad it is. Thankfully, this is pretty good, and what's more ? it even occasionally transcends the original. Zuri is proud to live with...

    It's a truth universally acknowledged that when rich people move into the hood, where it's a little bit broken and a little bit forgotten, the first thing they want to do is clean it up. 3 stars. This was so much better than I was expecting, honestly. Pride and Prejudice is ful...

    3.5 stars - It was really good. Pride and Prejudice is one of my all time favorite books, so I always love to read an author?s take on a retelling. Zoboi easily has the most original and fresh version that I have read thus far. Things still were far from perfection however. The...

    I liked seeing familiar elements from the original P&P story serving as the framework for this modern, multicultural YA tale, and that?s definitely the charming part of this tale to me ? the author?s fresh take on the characters, in particular. But I wasn?t quite as investe...

    I received a copy via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. I am so disappointed. I was so excited to read an adaptation of one of my favourite classics--especially one with Latinx characters because I'm Latina. Though my particular culture was not represented food-wise, I did...

    I initially went four stars, but after writing the review I can?t see any reason to withhold the fifth star. A pleasant book and a story that will transport you back to your teen years. She has really captured the authentic feel of those teenage worries, the angst around boys, the fa...

    'This is the most I can do right now without calling him everything but a child of God, as Mama would say.'* A retelling of Pride & Prejudice that I can finally get behind. Howwww? I don't even like Jane Austen since I think she's overrated because all she did was write about ch...

    3 Stars There is a lot to appreciate about this story. The writing quality is solid and the topical themes highlight a thoughtful examination into issues relating to gentrification, race, social class, and culture. As a diverse retelling/remix of Jane Austen?s classic Pride &a...

    I really enjoyed this retelling of Pride and Prejudice by Ibi Ziboi. Being a fan of Jane Austen's wit, I'm always interested to see what authors do with her story. Ibi Ziboi kept the bones of Austen's story, but wonderfully transplanted it to Bushwick, Brooklyn in New York City. Zuri B...

    I'm going to keep my review for Pride pretty simple and short, because in all honestly this book isn't written for me. There needs to be more room for POC to review this book so I'll focus primarily on my experience reading it and less on being too analytical. In short I adored thi...

    So here's the thing. I was so so excited about PRIDE. I loved the idea of this modernized retelling (I love the idea of any retelling, really, they just so rarely live up to the hype), I loved that this was an #ownvoices story, and also hello look at that amazing cover, I loved that, t...

    This was a super quick listen and it was really enjoyable too! I loved how it was a retelling, and a really thoughtful one at that. It wasn't just the story placed wherever, everything served a purpose and I loved that. This truly is a pride and prejudice remix that you should try out!...

    Honest chat. I've never read Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice". Did I lose my writing and reading credentials? Do I stand to continue my bookworm status? No. Good. I've survived over forty years of not reading the story nor watching a film adaptation while thriving on pop-cu...

    A brilliant retelling! I read Pride and Prejudice years ago, and can say with certainty that I enjoyed Pride significantly more. - Culturally relevant and freshly told, Pride is a retelling of Pride and Prejudice, except it is set in Bushwick, New York, and follows Tahitian-Domin...

    More reviews up on my blog Inside My Library Mind As a retelling... I loved that this was a diverse retelling of Pride and Prejudice. And in my opinion, Zoboi picked the perfect setting to retell this story. The Bennets become the Benitezes, who host block parties and have a ...

    I so wanted to like this but...man. The writing here simply doesn?t work. I would have loved for this to be a cool take on class, culture, and prejudice, but the quality of the writing distracted a lot from the themes. Here, take a look: ?No they?re not! Those boys look like...

    DNF at 22% I think I'm being over critical here. But honestly, I really wished Zuri would have just gotten off her high horse. She never gave the Darcy?s a chance and to be honest it's all because they don?t look or act like boys where she?s from. Which brings me to my main...

    I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS STORY!!!! I have not read the original Pride and Prejudice and to be quite honest, I'm? not interested. What drew me to Pride is the fact that I enjoy Ibi Zoboi's writing and Elizabeth Acevedo's reading. And I was right! This book was an incredible experienc...
