OT - for Jane Austen fans

Lucinda Shastid

If you're a Jane Austen fan, I can strongly recommend the novel Eligible by Curtis Sittenfeld.  It's a retelling of P&P set in Cincinnati of today - completely true to the original, and completely unlike it.

Charles Bingley of Netherfield is Chip Bingley who made his name on the reality TV show "Eligible."  Mr. Bennet is just as distant and snarky/cynical is in the original, but in a completely different manner.

It's a fun story to read even if you've never read P&P, but much funnier if you have!
