One of a series of six retellings of Jane Austen's great works, this Real Reads Pride and Prejudice is true to the original in many ways. It is true to the plot, character, and themes, and the author successfully imitates Austen's style and syntax. A wonderful introduction to this classic work of literature, and an enjoyable listening experience in its own right.

“These lively, attractive little volumes are ideal. Charmingly presented and skilfully written, they capture something of the flavour and tone of Jane Austen’s peerless craft, while simplifying the narrative and dialogue. Even as a purist, I think these Real Reads are a Real Help for the younger, novice reader.” (Josephine Ross, author of Jane Austen: A Companion)
“The perfect introduction to the pleasures of Jane Austen’s work; pleasures which may well last a lifetime.” (Caroline Sanderson, author of A Rambling Fancy: In the Footsteps of Jane Austen)
“Real Reads will appeal enormously to young people who have seen the adaptations and are looking for a book that fulfils the same function. We expect to sell a lot of copies.” (Ann Channon, Jane Austen’s House Museum, Chawton)
“These books will provide children with a wonderful introduction to Jane Austen, and are equally good for their parents who simply want a “quick fix” of Austen for themselves.” (Donna Lodge, Jane Austen Centre, Bath)
