Publisher's Summary

Lizzy Bennett always told herself she was too busy for love, especially since she was working full-time as a nurse at Meryton Medical Center and helping to care for her young niece. When her sister, Jane, catches the attention of young medical resident Dr. Charlie Bingley, she does everything she can to help her sister find happiness - even if it means enduring the presence of Charlie's arrogant friend, Dr. William Darcy.
In this modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice, familiar characters are reimagined but the overarching question remains: will Lizzy and Darcy overcome their personal and social contrivances to find true love?

Couldn't suffer through the book.

This is a great disappointment to anyone that has a love of Pride and Pejudice. To put it in modern times is one thing, to completely detroy the integrity that made Jane Austen's book a classic is unforgivable. Save your money and time, just reread P and P. You'll be much happier.

- Book Lover!

No emotional investment in the characters,

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I love P&P variations, so will usually read anything available, however I don't remember ever yelling "oh good grief" and rolling my eyes so many times.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

This is the first time I have read a modern P&P story so I was hoping.

Could you see First Impressions: A Modern Retelling of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

The script would need more something. I never felt that Lizzie and Darcy really even cared about each other.

Any additional comments?

I wanted to love this book but had to restart a half dozen times, I kept falling asleep.
