This was awesome! A Pakistani retelling of Pride and Prejudice *very* faithful to the original. I've read my fair share of retellings and none of them so closely followed Austen's plot and characters so that at times I felt almost like I was reading the original. But I also felt like Kamal put her own fascinating spin on the story with its setting in contemporary Pakistan with a Muslim family. One brilliant change: making Colonel Fitzwilliam gay! And I liked how there was more focus on Elizabeth/Alys and Charlotte/Cherie's friendship.
