HA HA HA! I don’t even know what to say about this one. I’ve been trying to be good and not post reviews on my JAFF (Jane Austen Fan Fiction) But,with this one I COULDN’T HELP MYSELF!! Pride and Prejudice told entirely through social media and emojis…. being a Noob in the social media world I actually had to highlight some of the acronyms to look up what they meant!! Don’t hate me for not understanding these… and try not to laugh when I tell you what I had to look up.. But, for all of those out there who are NOT down/up?? with all the Terms: SMH: Shaking My Head TBT: Throwback Thursday IMHO: In My Humble Opinion OTP: One True Pairing NTM: Not Too Much And for those of you who decide to check out this book THERE’S A LEGEND AT THE BACK THAT TELLS YOU WHAT ALL THE TERMS MEAN!!! THAT would have been nice to know when I was Google searching all of these terms! Lol!! For a taste of how the book reads.. here you go! “From: Jane Bennet To: Lizzy Bennet Subject: Lonely in London Lizzy! It’s been 4 weeks and I still haven’t run into Bingley. 😣His sister waited 2 weeks(!) to say hi. 😳When she did come over, she was so incredibly rude. I don’t want 2 b friends 👭 w/ her anymore. Maybe she’s protective of Bingley?? But that doesn’t make sense bc he’s completely ghosted 👻me anyway. No📱 , no 📩, no✉ . Nothing. 😳💔Caroline even said he knew I was here. Maybe I’ll never find 💓. Time to start collecting 🐱s! Hope things are better on your end. xox Jane” I thought this book was very humorous and really well done just because of the characters and how I could TOTALLY see them on social media!! Mrs. Bennet: Mrs. Bennet took a quiz. Using one emoji, describe your daughters. Jane: 😇 Lizzy: 💡 Mary: 📚 Kitty: 😍 Lydia: 😘 👍Kitty likes this. REPLY But, then seeing Darcy calling Elizabeth Lizzie and using things like #SorryNotSorry had my Jane Austen fangirl heart breaking… Lol! It was definitely one of those books that I’m happy I read, but it also hurt to read it!!

    In this latest "Pride and Prejudice" knockoff, the famous story by Jane Austen is told through text messages, emojis, emails, status updates and various other social media avenues.

Imagine everyone at the ball trying to converse, court one another and dance with prospective suitors all while having their noses buried in their smartphones. The only way you could interact with your dance partner would be to text them! Anyone who has an iphone will appreciate the page that includes the weather updates for Cupertino, New York and Hartfordshire. That was only one of the instances that I literally lol'd! Do not read this book as an easier version of "Pride and Prejudice" or give it to anyone who has never read the original before. While it is a fun read and actually quite humorous you do not get the full story you would from reading the original. Overall, it was a fun and super quick read that had me laughing throughout. The humor in this would most likely be lost on someone not familiar with the characters and story already, but anyone who is a true Austen fan should enjoy the silliness that is this version of events.

    This book is a fucking tragedy. I can't even begin to tell you how ridiculous and angry this book makes me. Jane Austen would be rolling in her grave if she saw what this author did to her work and then have the audacity to put her name on the book! Turning a classic book into text speak and having characters like Darcy using sly faces and STFU as a response. I can't even find the words. The most bizarre part of this whole horrible experiment is that it's still set in the original time period ?? This book is a fucking tragedy.

The most bizarre part of this whole horrible experiment is that it's still set in the original time period ?????? Jane asks for the carriage at one point and they talk about governesses. If you're including phones and facebook statuses and everything, WHY? At the beginning and end of the book are guides to all the emojis the author used. Then I discovered she has used the same treatment with other Austen and Shakespeare books. I am offended over ALL OF THIS. I lost brain cells reading this thing.

    Fans of the classic Pride and Prejudice will have great fun reading this version of the story told through a series of texts. Although some of the subplots and other family members receive some small attention here, it is the off-again, on-again relationship between Darcy and independent-minded Elizabeth Bennett that is at the center of the story and makes this version of the story so compelling.

Imagine being at a ball but spending most of your time head down, texting madly, and often missing chances to dance with someone. Readers will get a kick out of the misunderstandings that bloom between the would-be couple, and all the drama created by onlookers as they work their way back to safe romantic ground. Although those who haven't read the original book may be a bit clueless about the plot's intricacies, this one might provide enough of a tease to encourage them to read the Jane Austen title that inspired this book.

    Meh. I love all things Pride and Prejudice, but this just wasn't for me. You tend to loose some depth to the characters and the plot when the whole story is told through social media. I also can't imagine a Lizzy Bennett who would use the poop emoji.

    I bought this book thinking it was going to make me laugh, but honestly, I had to force myself to keep going after only a few pages. Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite classics, which is probably the only reason this book got two stars instead of one. All of the slang that was used was so overdone and it drove me crazy. No one uses acronyms and emojis that much - at least, no one I know. This may be a good way to introduce the story to elementary schoolers, but I personally don't think it I bought this book thinking it was going to make me laugh, but honestly, I had to force myself to keep going after only a few pages.

    This is a wildly creative concept that works - retelling classic stories in texts - complete with emojis and modern "text speak." In this case, Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. This modern retelling captures the heart of the story and is hysterically funny. There are app screen shots...like a weather app and an app that replaces an old fashioned dance card. OMG This is the most creative retelling ever!

    I have read Pride and Prejudice and I have watched Pride and Prejudice and though I know that this is a very unpopular opinion, I am not a huge fan of the story. I just find it to be dull. That being said, I do really enjoy these text/emoji versions that have come out of several different stories. They are quite fun to read though I think I prefer the Shakespeare ones.

    I gave this four stars because while reading it I had a smile on my face the whole time. If you're a purist you probably wouldn't like it but if you like any Jane Austen adaptation you might like this one if you like things more on the silly side.

    Big dumb fun and Darcy. I think Jane Austen would have liked it if she weren't dead for 200 years. I was grateful for the glossary of emoticons and text-speak translations...as I couldn't guess a few. I'm always slow on the uptake of stuff like that.

    this was super cute. I read yolo Juliet so I'm used to the style. It's basically the story reduced to emojis and shorthand, but it made me laugh. the only awkward thing is, if you think too much about it, these people are texting each other when they're in the same room and sometimes it really wouldn't make sense. if you're a huge p&p fan, you may enjoy this, esp if you can get it on sale like I did! I would love for them to do the whole Austen set.

    This series of books is really fun, it takes classics like Pride and Prejudice and Romeo and Juliet and rewrites the story in text speak. I may just love this because I love Pride and Prejudice, but I think it's a cleaver twist to get students interested in those classic books. This was funny and done in a cleaver fashion. It is also a really quick read.

    This reimagination of Pride and Prejudice is funny. It is an addition to the OMG Shakespeare series. Each book continues to add new ways to connect with technological communications. My favorite phrase in this one was regarding Mrs. Bennet, who's "netiquette" was lacking. Fun and easy read!

    Fun story for what it was. I love P&P. I've tried to watch all the versions I could find. This was a cute addition. Learned a couple new acronyms for texting. :) Learned a couple more for not texting. :o Seen a few new uses for some emoji's I hadn't thought about. Overall, it was amusing. My wife thought it was stupid after reading just a little of the first volume. My sister-in-law thought it was stupid after reading just a couple pages.

I guess I can't really argue the point strongly, because art, in it's many forms, is seen differently by everyone. I thought it was creative by using multiple formats of social media. I've never really clicked on the 'like' button, but thought it was amusing to see those responses too. I don't plan on reading more of the same type of book, but, time will tell. :-)

    3.5/5 stars. This was very entertaining at times ("You know this is Lizzy, right?"), but the abundant use of emojis and abbreviations got irritating to read and sounded like an adult trying to use "kid speak." However, this was definitely better than Scrooge #Worstgiftever because while A Christmas Carol is short and easy to read quickly, Pride and Prejudice is very long and this makes for an easy-to-read summary of the book.

    This is less of an updated retelling than a modern Cliff Notes version of Pride and Prejudice. I think the OMG Classics (such as this one and YOLO Juliet) are a fun way to introduce classic stories to a young audience. I don't think they are substantial enough to stand on their own, though. Certainly some of the satirical impact and depth of character, and all of the poetic beauty of the language, is lost in such a condensing of plot and language.

    It's Pride and Prejudice with texts and emojis! Fun to "read" and short, compared to the real book. It's a great way to introduce a young reader to the classics without the flowery language. Great for upper elementary to high school students (FYI, it does have curse words, in text abbreviations). The book is written in text messages, notes, check-ins, and other formats found in social media communications.

    Thank goodness for the numerous picture books, graphic novels and now various social media compilations that make reading fun! Teens will LOVE Darcy Swipes Left. While it clearly doesn't add the same level of mental enrichment that Pride and Prejudice does, it will get students more excited about reading the originals more antiquated language.
