Pride, Prejudice and Jasmin Field
Pride, Prejudice and Jasmin Field: A Novel | Melissa Nathan
3 posts | 5 read | 4 to read
It starts as a lark for Jasmin Field, the charming, acerbically witty columnist for a national women's magazine. She joins a host of celebraties gathering in London to audition for the season's most dazzling charity event: a one-night only stage production of Jane Austen's immortal Pride and Prejudice, directed by and starring the Academy Award -- winning Hollywood heartthrob Harry Noble. And nobody is more surprised than Jasmin herself when she lands the lead of handsome Harry's love interest, Elizabeth Bennet. But things start to go very wrong very quickly. Ms. Field's delicious contempt for the arrogant, overbearing Harry Noble goes from being wicked fun to infuriating. Her brief moment of theatrical glory looks as if it's going to be overshadowed by the betrayal of her best friend, the disintegration of her family and the implosion of her career. And suddenly she can't remember a single one of her lines. But, worst of all, Harry Noble -- who, incidentally, looks amazing in tight breeches -- has started to stare hard at Jazz with that sort of a glimmer in his eyes... Fresh, wild, wonderfully romantic and absolutely hilarious, Pride, Prejudice and Jasmin Field is Jane Austen as the great lady herself never imagined it.

Pride and Prejudice and Jasmin Field is one of the worst #austenesque adaptations I've read. Bridget Jones, of course, remains the best. #austeninaugust

Crinoline_Laphroaig My worst would be the last #biglibraryread Western Retelling of Pride and Prejudice featuring Rob Darcy. 🤦‍♀️ 1y
Andrea313 @Crinoline_Laphroaig OMG that sounds too ridiculous to be real! Pretty sure I'd take a hard pass on that one. 1y

Much better Austen adaptation than the messy Eligible, in my opinion. This was breezy and funny, nothing massively impressive but far from the drivel that rewrites of classic novels usually bring about.

JackieSmith That foam art! Wow! 3y
