Pride and Prejudice is my favorite classic story. I've read and watched almost all of the different renditions of this story - from the YouTube drama to the one with the zombies. I loved it all.
Except for this.
And I liked the concept initially. I've always wanted to see the story from Darcy's point of view and I always enjoy the gender switch as much as the next person.
But man was the execution terrible. Everything was just ridiculous. It felt so... flat and fake and terribly lazy writing. But my biggest problem was with Bingley.
It's like he was written as a girl and then switched his pronouns because he was gay. It was so toxic and lazy.
It felt like it was written by a teenager, or someone trying to meet the deadline for NanoWrimo.
There was a whole thing about the 12 days of Christmas and why Darcy didn't believe in Santa. Like... what. It was so out of place.
I'm sorry but I am just upset at how this book came out because I was so excited to read this
