Darcy Swipes Left


Formats & editions


Pride and Prejudice, one of the greatest love stories ever told…in texts?!

Imagine: What if Lizzy Bennet and Mr. Darcy had smartphones and dated IRL (in real life)? A classic is reborn in this clever adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice!

A truth universally acknowledged: a rich guy must want a wife.
A terrible first impression.
A couple that’s meant to be…if they can just get over themselves. #hatersgonnadate

Don’t miss: Lydia taking selfies with soldiers, Mrs. Bennet’s humble-brag status updates, Lizzy texting from her long walks, and Darcy swiping left on a dance card app.

tl;dr Jane Austen’s most famous novel told through its characters texting with emojis, posting photos, checking in at locations, and updating their relationship statuses. The perfect gift for any teen (or any reader with a sense of humor)!

A glossary and cast of characters are included for those who need it. For example: tl;dr means too long; didn’t read.
