Definitely, Maybe in Love by Ophelia London

Let just tell you that I love Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. It is one of my favorite books. So, when I heard that Definitely, Maybe in Love by Ophelia London was an adaptation Pride and Prejudice, it became a must read. Yes, I love the different adaptation of that story, because it's a marvelous book. Anyway, I'm here to talk about the greatness that is Definitely, Maybe in Love.

If you have read Pride and Prejudice you will see some of the characters resemble some of Austen's characters. Here are the characters that play a part in the story:

Spring Honeycutt: She would be your Lizzy Bennett. However, she's a bit of environmental nut. You got stand for what you believe in. She was called "a tree-hugging feminist."
Henry Edward Knightly, III: He would be your Mr. Darcy. Yes, he does come from money. Like Darcy he's judge a bit harshly and we assume he's pompous jerk. However, he's the law student with undergrad in finance who's going to help Spring.
Dart Charleston: Mr. Bingley. Yes, he kind of lets his friends and family influence him.
Lilah Charleston: Yes, she's Caroline Bingley, but I think she's worst that Caroline. She thinks she's better than Spring.
Anabel: I actually thought she would be Lydia, but she's more like Kitty in a lot ways.
Julia: She's a lot like Jane, but her character got mixed with another character. However, she's sweet and kind like Jane.
Melanie: She's a combination of Charlotte and Mrs. Gardiner.
Tyler: Like Colonel Fitzwilliam. Of course, he's Henry's cousin.
Alex Parks: Wickham. He's worst than Wickham, because Wickham was just used people to get money.

Honestly, I really liked Definitely, Maybe in Love. I thought it was a great way to bring Austen's Pride and Prejudice to the modern light. You have Spring and Henry going at each other on there different points of view and trying to prove that they are right. Slowly, they come together, and like Austen's story they face their trials that could tare them apart. Like I said, a marvelous read. I would recommend this to anyone who has a love for Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Or those who love enemies to lovers story. So, if you are looking a new outlook on an old classic, you might want to try Definitely, Maybe in Love.
