Pride and Prejudice gets remixed in this smart, funny, gorgeous retelling of the classic, starring all characters of color, from Ibi Zoboi, National Book Award finalist and author of American Street. Zuri Benitez has pride. Brooklyn pride, family pride, and pride in her Afro-Latino roots. But pride might not be enough to save her rapidly gentrifying neighborhood from becoming unrecognizable. When the wealthy Darcy family moves in across the street, Zuri wants nothing to do with their two teenage sons, even as her older sister, Janae, starts to fall for the charming Ainsley. She especially can't stand the judgmental and arrogant Darius. Yet as Zuri and Darius are forced to find common ground, their initial dislike shifts into an unexpected understanding. But with four wild sisters pulling her in different directions, cute boy Warren vying for her attention, and college applications hovering on the horizon, Zuri fights to find her place in Bushwick's changing landscape, or lose it all. In a timely update of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, critically acclaimed author Ibi Zoboi skillfully balances cultural identity, class, and gentrification against the heady magic of first love in her vibrant reimagining of this beloved classic.… (mer)

When will I learn to stop reading Jane Austen retellings? I think the author is a talented writer, and the setting of the adaptation was interesting, but I found myself wishing that the author had thought of a novel plot to suit the setting instead of shoe horning Austen's plot into Bushwick. Let's all just make an agreement to leave Jane Austen alone, ok?? ( )

This "modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice" was interesting.

Ibi Zoboi is an amazing writing and Elizabeth Acevedo who narrates does a superb job - better than Poet X in my opinion as all the characterizations showed the depth and breadth of her vocal/narrative work.

This "retelling" was elevated with the diverse characters, backgrounds and stories which are woven within this narrative that the original "classic" was lacking. Furthermore, our "Lizzie" character or "Zuri" is a poet which is a HIGHLIGHT in this audiobook between Zoboi's words and Acevedo's delivery - it is AMAZING.

The short falling of this re-imagining is that it should be marketed NOT as a modern retelling - it should simply be Pride and Prejudice fractured/twisted tale as it uses the bones of Jane Austen's novel to drive most of the narrative but for P&P die hard fans this may not be EXACTLY what you were hoping for...

However, let me say that this was an excellent YA romance in which is quite clean in terms of descriptions and interactions. ( )

I picked up Pride by Ibi Zoboi because Amazon recommended it to me. I had purchased another book, I can't even remember which now and Pride was in the section of "Others Who Bought X Also Bought...". The title and cover caught my attention so I clicked on the link. Once I read the synopsis I was sold. Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen is one of my favorites and I re-read it often. Pride sounded like it would be a nice retelling.

I really enjoyed this book. I think that it did a fantastic job keeping true to the inspiration for it but also adding it's own flair. Zuri and Darius were true to their roles. I will say that I saw Zuri's mom as far less irritating than Mrs. Bennett but maybe that's because Mrs. Benitez was more modern and therefore more relatable to my own mother?

All of the characters were familiar but different and I can't even begin to tell you how much I LOVED that. Zoboi honored Austen but was able to recreate the story for a generation far removed from the origin. Zuri wasn't my favorite character but I could admire her for what she was. She was the strong one in her group of siblings. She was the one making sure her younger sisters didn't get too stupid.

I really related to Zuri. I always thought that people who lived in cities were so sophisticated and worldly. It never once occurred to me that people can live in a city and barely leave a couple blocks radius. I grew up in a town with about 3,000 people. Even less when the big factory 10 miles north of us closed and moved operations to Mexico. My family never traveled. It didn't take much for either of us to be impressed during our first travels and because of that neither of us was real open to change.

Darius Darcy was aloof through much of the book but there are times when he drops his walls too. When those walls are gone we get to see the caring guy he is underneath. I feel like we spend most of this book learning who Zuri was and just touched very briefly on who Darius was as a person. All of the secondary characters had just enough page time to contribute to the story but we don't get to know them very well.

I would say that if you enjoyed Pride & Prejudice in any form and you like to read young adult books then you should definitely give Pride by Ibi Zoboi a shot. It is a fairly quick read. I listened to about an hour and a half of the audio and really, really liked the audio narration. It gave accent to the names and words that my Midwestern accent (or lack of accent?) just can't give justice too. I am so glad Amazon suggested this one to me as it will probably be re-read as often as Jane Austen's book. ( )

diverse fiction (modern Brooklyn version of Pride and Prejudice, with Haitian/Dominican Zuri "ZZ" as Elizabeth).
I read to page 82--it was ok, but felt a bit formulaic (this is where Darius/Darcy saves ZZ/Elizabeth's life, this is where ZZ/Elizabeth has to sit through a picnic for Janae/Jane's sake, etc.), even for someone who only very vaguely remembers the details of P&P). I enjoyed Zoboi's American Street but Pride not my favorite. ( )

It's a truth universally acknowledged that when rich people move into the hood, where it’s a little bit broken and a little bit forgotten, the first thing they want to do is clean it up.
