LoveReading View on Lizzy Bennet's Diary

Jane Austen’s classic Pride and Prejudice remains one of the most romantic stories ever and this delightful diary is both an entertaining way into it and a fun way of recalling it if it is already familiar. Recognising that his daughter Lizzy is the only one of the four who is not an airhead, Mr Bennet gives her a diary so that she can record the girls’ life. It is the perfect vehicle for Lizzy’s sharp observations! Beautifully produced with all kinds of illustrations and loads of extra messages wittily included including fold-out letters and notes it tells the story of Pride and Prejudice against a background of the time. A truly wonderful gift.
