"There is a great deal that goes into making a video blog. Lizzie Bennet should know, having become a YouTube sensation over the course of her year-long video diary project. The Lizzie Bennet Diaries chronicled Lizzie's life as a twenty-four-year-old grad student, struggling under a mountain of student loans and living at home with her two sisters--beautiful Jane and reckless Lydia. What may have started as her grad student thesis grew into so much more, as the videos came to inform and reflect her life and that of her sisters. When rich, handsome Bing Lee comes to town, along with his stuck-up friend William Darcy, things really start to get interesting for the Bennets--and for Lizzie's viewers. Suddenly Lizzie--who always considered herself a fairly normal young woman--was a public figure. But not everything happened on-screen. Luckily for us, Lizzie kept a secret diary. The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet provides more character introspection as only a book can, with revelatory details about the Bennet household, including Lizzie's special relationship with her father, untold stories from Netherfield, Lizzie's thoughts and fears about life after grad school and becoming an instant web celebrity" --… (mer)

Despite being the novelisation of a web series based on a book, The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet manages to somehow inject the well-known story of Pride & Prejudice with a whole new layer of interest and meaning.
If you haven't seen the web series that this book is based upon, then a lot of it is going to seem quite confusing. It could also come off as cheesy and a bit odd at times. However, if you have seen it, then this book promises to unveil a load of secrets and unmentioned occurrences. While some come as a total shock and don't seem to correlate with the videos at all, others are the bits that you knew existed and always wondered about. For example, George Wickham's (very weak) walrus joke and the contents William Darcy's letter. While most of the key happenings were laid out in the videos, much of the detail and exposition were missing, and is added here. That said, it's possible that some of that was part of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries transmedia storytelling, but I didn't really pay enough attention to it all, so it was new to me.
I enjoy this book more than I expected I would. I really love the web series, and I didn't really think that this novel could live up to that, let alone bring more to play. However, it did. It adds a much more detailed, fleshed-out layer of story about Lizzie's professional life and her, not so much coming-of-age as, realisation-of-age. That experience of coming to terms with the realisation that, not only you, but everyone around you is growing up and moving on with their lives really spoke to me and hit at something very poignant to me at this point in my life. This novel explores a lot more themes around growing up and life choices than the web series did. Don't worry, it still has all the romance. In fact, it may even have more!
For me, it's these themes that makes this novel worthwhile. While I'm sure there are "better" novels out there that explore the same sort of stuff, if you're a fan of The Lizzie Bennet Diaries, then you'll get a kick out of this. ( )

Not a bad addition to the Lizzie Bennet series but it copped out on pivotal scenes which I found dissapointing and I can't imagine it would work too well outside of the videos. ( )

Loved this.

From my review:

Mr. Collins is a tech startup wannabe, who’s secured a massive investment from venture capitalist Catherine de Bourgh, although his company hasn’t made much of anything yet. He’s spot on, spouting corporate platitudes and elevator pitches, completely full of himself, and yet not entirely unsympathetic. (It’s actually a pretty kind reinvention, considering another Pride&Prejudice spinoff has Mr Collins getting chased by a swarm of bees into a cowpond where he drowns.) So good. And then Lizzie gets a gig at Pemberley Digital, where a certain brooding hipster is the CEO.

Read the whole review here. ( )

Cute modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice.
This version has Lizzie in grad school, Lydia in college and Jane living also living at home because of her income.

This Lizzie is of course smart. Lydia is still the wild child and Jane is still a hopeless romantic.

Mrs Bennett feels even more old fashioned considering this is modern day and she’s still trying to marry off her twenty-something aged daughters.

In a new twist on the story, Lizzie has a web series.

I picked this book up because I enjoy Austen and Austen retellings. So, I have read a good bit of them. I even have a Goodreads shelf for Austen adaptations. This one was middle of the road in my opinion. It didn’t blow me away but it was cute.

I do plan to check out the YouTube web series now. ( )

I don't know why I picked this up when I really wasn't even a fan of the YouTube series... ( )
