5.0 out of 5 stars A Relevant Retelling!
Reviewed in the United States on October 1, 2018
I loved this story. While there were multiple elements of Pride and Prejudice, I enjoyed the modern twist that brought up very important issues. Our experiences and circumstances shape us in a way, whether we are trying to fit into our environment or trying to purposely stand apart from it. While we may share parts of our cultural identity with others, that doesn't always make us the same. This book took on thoughts around cultural identity, socioeconomic status, and what we think it means to be black, rich, etc. How we judge whether someone is enough, or whether they meet our standard of a cultural identity. There is also this underlying idea of accepting and being proud of who you are, but also not being afraid of change that is inevitable.

Another topic I thought was beautifully handdled was the many facets of gentrification. This is a real and relevant issue, because many of us disregard what is different, or  history that may not include us, yet is still so important. We tend to just want to improve things the way we think they should be improved (which is not always the best for everyone else).

Which leads me to one of my favorite parts of this book, the family dynamics of the Benitez's. They celebrate their culture identity, and the history of their neighborhood. They treat neighbors as family, and truly care about others. They support each other in such a beautiful way. Honestly, the connection is just inspiring. I would definitely recommend this book!

Pride is a modern retelling of Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice, set against a rapidly gentrified Bushwick (in Brooklyn, NY).

I will always be a fan of a P&P retelling because it's such a beloved story to me but this adaptation was top notch.
The story was familiar yet fresh, Zuri embodied Elizabeth so well and I absolutely loved Zuri's family.

The romance between Zuri & Darius was modern, fun and very realistic.

However the main stand out parts for me where the community aspect. I felt that this story was more of a love story for Bushwick than a romance between characters.
When I went to New York a few years ago we actually stayed in Bushwick, and even used the same subway line so I had a Very vivid image in my head. (Swipe for a picture of me at Halsey Station).

I also Adored the celebration of different cultures, especially the Latinx cultures. The rich tapestry of cultures, heritage, food, community, passion, expression, language, pride, love and being unapologetic about who you are and where you come from.

Everyone should read this book.
