really liked it
Read in February, 2011

Maybe it was that I was currently reading Pride and Prejudice, had just finished a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice, or that I had recently seen an Indian take on it (Bride and Prejudice- you should watch it), but I couldn't help see similarities between the two.

1. Male and female leads that instantly hate each other. Male thinks female foolish, etc.; female thinks male arrogant and rude.
2. Female lead's name is Jane (yes, I know in Pride and Prejudice it's Elizabeth, but her sister's name is Jane)
3. Said leads meet through mutual friends (not exactly like P&P but you get the point).
4. Leads fall in love (obviously- it's a romance novel) at the end, and overcome their prejudices (and, um, pride).

Does anyone else see this, or was it just me and my Pride and Prejudice obsession? I know that the novel was based on Meg Cabot's elopement, but that doesn't mean that it wasn't influenced...
