resemblance between the characters.Austen would swoon or implode in outrage Honestly, this sucks I do not understand how this book has an average rating of 4.08 stars There is no character development

asuperficial protagonist while she s always saying how she s not like the rest of em The were some other major flaws in this book but there are too many for me to sum up and quite frankly, it would be a waste of time to spendthan the 3hours I ve spent reading it to a book that is so incredibly flawed and unable to capture my interestthat sentence may not be completely right but idc When I finished this on Goodreads, a GR friend asked me Have you no shameand I just want to state for the record no, I do not I will pick up every damn thing with Pride and or and Prejudice in it Nor do I regret

every damn thing with Pride and or and Prejudice in it Nor do I regret that, because sometimes they turn out to be worth it This was actually really enjoyable, though certainly aimed at a particular segment of the reading public.It started out really rocky for me, actually, because it just felt like James was getting the characters or the characters of the characters wrong Chloe aka Lizzie was really closed off and downright rude, and Taylor aka Darcy was too suave and likable I mean, Darcy s not likable he s an ass You grow to love him, and you appreciate him for appreciating the fantasticness that is Elizabeth, but he didn t write the book How to Win Friends and Influence People, ya know Well, maybe How to Influence People, but not so much the making of the friends The dynamic that works so well about this story is that Elizabeth is strong, smart, and lovable but blinded and Darcy is honorable, caring, and thoughtful but doesn t show it When you mess with that dynamic, you may have a pleasant story that works in its own right, but it fails as a PP retelling by default For me, anyway So on some level, yes, this did fail as a PP retelling, because I don t think their characters were ever fully rectified, though they did have the classic moment of understanding and the reversal But that aside, it s very recognizable as PP, even as modern and young as it is, and amazingly, because I wasn t expecting it , it did even inspire some of the same feelings I had with PP It pulls you in in a similar way, and you find yourself loving how the characters are always talking at cross purposes and misunderstanding each other willfully or otherwise , just as in PP The story moves very quickly, and other than a tendency towards telling over showing and some general cheesiness especially in the dialogue, which is rough, and which was a big part of what was throwing me off in the beginning , it remains charming and wholesome throughout.Now, that being said, I think I should share the author s disclaimer If you are hoping to find a YA book full of paranormal beasts, sex, or teens who act muchlike under aged adults, I suggest you save your money and do not buy this book In fact don t buy any of The Jane Austen Diaries However, if you are looking for a clean, lighthearted, sweet romance, where teens are good and happy and normal like all of the teens I know including my own then read on You ve come to the right place Jenni This is going to be the major deciding point for most readers Pride and Popularity is a very youthful, very wholesome retelling, definitely geared toward younger readers, and those hoping to avoid even the whiff of anything questionable and readers should know this going in I didn t know, and just plunged right in, and it took me a bit to readjust my perception of what the story was going to be and who it was aimed at The characters are, I wanna say, fifteen, which inevitably means the content is going to be cutesied up and a bit fluffier and evenimmature than some Janeites may be looking for in their adaptations I myself am hesitant when it comes to fluff but I think in this case, it s well done fluff It s just wholesome and harmless, and it made me smile And as I mentioned, it s a very quick read, so certainly not a waste of time for insatiable Janeites or those looking for something age appropriate and sweet to introduce PP to their pre young teens It always amazes me when I read a lot of good reviews and high ratings, and then I rate the same book like this I think it is a terrible retelling of P it does not look real or flowing Even the cover looks fanfic.Chloe my God, what an obnoxio It always amazes me when I read a lot of good reviews and high ratings, and then I rate the same book like this I think it is a terrible retelling of PP I even couldn t stop thinking while I was reading it Mmmm I could be reading the last book of The Ghost and the Goth which I am going to do now.To me the book is like a fanfic The writing is amateur ish, the behavior of characters is so forced it does not look real or flowing Even the cover looks fanfic.Chloe my God, what an obnoxious character She proclaims she does not care for Taylor, but all she does is talk about him and think about him, in a bad way The only thing the poor guy ever did was to be a flirt Is that a sin That is no reason for being so disagreeable with him Taylor, the Darcy WOW, what an unappealing boy Darcy at least did not went out with every single girl available The same with Blake the conversations he has with Chloe over the phone were so unnatural, forced, zero chemistry.And I could go on and on about the negative aspects of the book It is so bad it is not even funny Worst YA P P adaptation yet Was going to give it a 2, but when Darcy gave Elizabeth a bible charm at the end b c she loves church not once before this was church or bible mentioned , I just got angry at the apparent propaganda Characters were immature yeah, YA, but still and Darcy didn t live up to his namesake This Darcy didn t even learn to love the heroine, he loved her from the start Argh This might have been OK if this were not a P P story I hated this book so much, I Worst YA PP adaptation yet Was going to give it a 2, but when Darcy gave Elizabeth a bible charm at the end b c she loves church not once before this was church or

of Pride Prejudice The story takes place in a modern day high school, with Chloe and Taylor as our leads Chloe was really likable I really liked her personality and thought she was fun to read about I m glad she didn t fall all over Taylor like literally every other girl He really had to earn it Taylor was also likable, we re able to see his charming side, but also his sincere side as well I had to

James did a great job of making PP her own It was fun to see the different characters in PP worked into this story, and it was just fun to see it all take place in a modern setting Really well done This is a fun series I think this is my favorite so far, but they are all cute Definitely recommend to anyone who enjoys a fun, clean romance Content Clean, PG A GREAT summer read I was laying in my bed, bored to death, when I saw I had this book and just thought, why not The minute I started reading I fell in love with Taylor and was able to identify myself with Chloe It s such an easy going

I LOVE high school drama, but Pride Popularity made my day It exasperated me and at the same time kind of melted me with all the romance and cuteness from the characters and all that in the middle of all my laughing Another thing I really liked from the book is that it was from one of the average girls in high school it wasn t from a nerd or from a super popular cheerleader, so the whole story seemedreal,possible The only thing I didn t like is that when I finished it, my first thought wasI don t know a guy half as good as Taylorwhich in my opinion sucks and totally frustrated me But I can t hold that against the book, can I So, this summer read was perfect, light hearted and funny I absolutely recommend it to anyone I have to warn you You ll have a huge and dumb goofy smile when you finish reading it I don t think it s possible to fully express how much I disliked this book In fact, if goodreads would let me, I d give it a half star or less.The writing is juvenile, filled with telling instead of showing James often has her narrator, Chloe, spell out subtext for the reader with annoying, italicized thoughts Not to mention her vocabulary is on the same level as the average

Anderson is such a chicken buttSeriously Chicken butt The girl is supposed to 17 and devastated The emotion is just as superficial and the character motivations are so shallow as to be nearly non existent.The novel really doesn t work when you consider it s supposed to be a re telling or homage to Pride and Prejudice The original is a gentle satire with a sarcastic yet likable heroine and a shy, initially prideful hero In Pride and Popularity, the Elizabeth is a whiny, judgmental brat and the Darcy is a smug player who is a jerk on purpose While the original Darcy let his pride get in the way of his better judgment, Taylor Anderson has no judgment to speak He s just a jerk Chloe isn t any better Austen s heroine was smart but Chloe is just an idiot.ARGH I was hoping for a sweet,
