Amazing story with lots of humor and romance. This is a cute, funny Bigfoot themed retelling of Pride and Prejudice. The main characters were likable and witty. Perfect read for any Jane Austen fangirls!
This book was incredibly easy to read. I found myself picking it up while wandering around the house any time I had a spare 5 minutes. The characters were well developed, and you felt connected to each of them as the story went on. I particularly loved all the British jargon that was tossed in by Devan. I'm a sucker for a British accent too. Thoughtful, funny, quirky and bit nerdy -- just the right combination!
There are certainly some parts of this story that parallel P&P, but it definitely has enough of its own storyline to keep readers guessing at what is going to happen next. The nods to the original story were fantastic though, and will certainly add an extra bit of fun for readers of Austen.
I adored the Berger family. The fact that the parents were such enthusiastic and unabashed believers in Bigfoot (aka Wood Ape) was absolutely charming. I think any fangirl/fanboy can relate to that kind of devotion. The Berger sisters themselves were perfect adaptations of Lizzy, Jane, and Lydia and each had their own modern twist and original take on the classic characters.
The romance in this story was as sweet and endearing as one would expect from an Austen retelling. And I really enjoyed how the authors gave some additional depth to some other characters who didn’t necessarily have that in P&P itself.
The fact that this story is all about a reality show competition where two teams face-off to try to find Sasquatch is absolutely hilarious. I adore that premise. It is so creative, original, and just so much fun.
This is definitely a book that would be enjoyed by readers of many, many different genres, and I’m so glad that I got the opportunity to enjoy it myself.
When the family is coaxed into competing against a team of arrogant and super-smart teens from a private school in Massachusetts, they're unprepared for the snobby treatment they get from the competition, not to mention the dismal weather and multiple intrigues and tricks perpetrated to keep the show's ratings high.
It takes a week in the wilds of the Pacific Northwest, some confessions by members of both teams and a $250,000 prize at stake to round out what's not only a fun read, but one with some humor and romance to boot. It's a fast, fun read and one many teens will really like.
I flew through this book in one sitting. Sasquatch, Love, and Other Imaginary Things will charm your big furry feet off.
