Eligible: A modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice

Reality. I had fun reading Curtis Sittenfeld’s Jane Austen update titled, Eligible: A Modern Retelling of Pride and Prejudice. The Bennet family live in a big old neglected house in Cincinnati. Liz is a magazine writer living in New York City. Chip Bingley is a Cincinnati physician who had appeared on a bachelor reality television show named Eligible, and his claim to fame is that he rejected all potential mates. Mr. Darcy is a neurosurgeon. Sittenfeld loves Austen enough to be true to the core of the original, and is clever enough to make her retelling seem fresh and new. Whether you’re an Austen fan or not, if you like a good story that’s well-written, consider spending a few fun hours reading this entertaining novel. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Eligible from
