    A Pakistani retelling of Pride and Prejudice? And by an author born in Pakistan? I was all sign me up So 366 stars It's not perfect and often it follows the original PP plot a little too closely especially with the characters' names and some famous lines and scenes from PP that were a little too spot on Alysba Alys Binat as Elizabeth Bennet and Valentine Darsee are okay but I draw the line at Jeorgeulla Wickaa

    I know this is a retelling of Pride and Prejudice but Alys Binat and Darsee?? The writer could have at least tried to come up with a bunch of decent Pakistani names instead of these weird variations If I were being honest this felt like a tacky dubbing of a renowned foreign movie in a regional language for local audience's benefit than a remake Reminded me of the time I watched Harry Potter and Draco shouting o

    Between 3 and 35 starsThere's that classic line from the song Beauty and the Beast which goes Tale as old as time It signifies a story that's been heard so many times throughout the ages although it may take on slightly or drastically different forms each time you hear itJane Austen's Pride and Prejudice is definitely one of those tales as old as time Not only have there been countless adaptations of this classic on television and

    Unmarriageable as many no doubt know is an entertaining re telling of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice – with a twistIf you are familiar with the original Austen story then the premise of Unmarriageable will be familiar to you; it is in fact the same The difference and what works so well is that it is set in today’s modern Pakistan If you are unfamiliar with the history of Pakistan it once was part of India sepa

Ressed by the Binat family Alys accidentally overhears his unflattering assessment of her and uickly dismisses him and his snobbish ways As the days of lavish wedding parties unfold the Binats wait breathlessly to see if Jena will land a proposal and Alys begins to realize that Darsee’s brusue manner may be hiding a very different man from the one she saw at first glance Told with wry wit and colorful prose Unmarriageable is a charming update on Jane Austen’s beloved novel and an exhilarating exploration of love marriage class and sisterhood.. Unmarriageable as many no doubt know is an entertaining re telling of Jane Austen s Pride and Prejudice with a twistIf you are familiar with the original Austen story then the premise of Unmarriageable will be familiar to you it is in fact the same The difference and what works so well is that it is set in today s modern Pakistan If you are unfamiliar with the history of Pakistan it once was part of India separated now after a war for Independence and is a thriving democracy that still very much is based on its British colonial past that it learned while it was part of British colonial rule All that to say they study English classics often than many westerners outside of the UK and have a fascination with British literature rarely seen outside of Europe And while so much of Pakistan is uite modern its class structure still is very much stuck in the colonial past The roles of women while evolving still is stuck there as well That is why this particular setting for this particular book is so utterly fascinatingKamal s writing is tight and while she doesn t have a flare for wit like Austen few do her characters are charming and their observations about the Pakistani culture are very much on point I have several friends from Lahore Pakistan and while reading Unmarriageable I could hear their voices and see their streets come alive in my mind Although Kamal now lives in America her Pakistani roots still very much shine through in her writing and those of us who rarely get a glimpse of the sub continent are able to see a bit of it through her workWhether you are an Austen fan or just a fan of great fiction you will find Unmarriageable delightful entertaining as well educationalMy copy was furnished by Netgalley RandomHousePublishing BallentineBooks
