"Offers a fresh take on Pride and Prejudice—without ruining it. . . . [Lizzie's] voice is reminiscent of the sort of wry sarcasm that made Daria so appealing." (Washington Post)
"Jane Austen would, like, totally approve." (People)
"Fantastic . . . This book hits all the high points of Austen’s most famous novel in satisfying ways (Darcy’s confession, Lydia’s bad choices), while updating it for the digital age. Though the videos are the catalyst for the novel, readers need not have viewed them to enjoy this story. Fans of the Web series and newcomers alike will be satisfied." (Publishers Weekly)
Praise for The Lizzie Bennet Diaries: "Addictive . . . In theory, it should be terrible. In practice, it's pure genius. . . . The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is faithful to the original without being slavish or full of in-jokes. It's a sharp, clever re-imagining of a novel about class, society and the things we do for love (and money). I like to think that if Austen was writing now, she might have created something very like this." (The Guardian)
"It’s AWESOME and AMAZING and WOW. . . . I loved, loved, loved this update. . . . Aside from just being a great series, and aside from showing how a retelling can be original, and aside from illustrating how an update can be faithful, The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is also an example of how story-telling evolves and how that evolution does not mean that existing methods of story-telling disappear. We live in a world where Pride and Prejudice can be a book, can be movies and musicals and TV shows, and can also be a 'video/social media' series. This retelling no more erases the Jane Austen book than an e-book means that linear storytelling and 'books' disappear and become choose-your-own-adventure/game apps." (School Library Journal)
"The Lizzie Bennet Diaries finds a new way to present a 200-year-old story. . . . [It is] the quintessentially 21st-century take on Austen’s novel . . . a unique piece of interactive media that has a big heart and a lot of soul." (The Onion A.V. Club)
"Brilliant." (The Awl)
"An impressive feat; a charming and creative twist on a familiar tale." (The Daily Dot)

There are some positive aspects. The novel does an excellent job of demonstrating how people mean well when trying to help someone who's going through a hard time, but end up doing more harm than good. And Lydia was written as still being the LBD Lydia, and yet also a damaged young lady.
Lydia's voice is all over this and I'm swooning as I feel reunited with a character who we were meant to hate and fell in love with anyway. I loved getting more from Mary, as well as visits from Lizzie and Jane. But my heart belongs to Lydia Brittany Bennet and this book reminded me why.
