Before Edward Cullen and Christian Grey, there was Mr. Darcy.

When the young, handsome, and wealthy Mr. Darcy moves into the neighborhood, all of the single ladies think they will be the one woman to finally make him their husband. They soon find he is an extremely proud man, who is not into casual dating or giving the appearance of being in a relationship with just any woman. When he starts to develop feelings for the most unlikely of women, Elizabeth Bennet, he must decide if his feelings for her will overcome his pride and prejudices of what he is looking for in a relationship.

He has a high functioning form of autism known as Asperger's Syndrome.� He doesn't really see this as a disability since other people throughout history like Isaac Newton, Michelangelo, Mark Twain, Beethoven, Jane Austen, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein are believed to have had the same form of autism.

If anything Jack feels like his autism helps him to create his works with a distinctive feel.� He isn't afraid to try new things or to present new ideas in the form of art.

The author says he wanted to use more current language so readers of Twilight and Fifty Shades would come to appreciate Mr. Darcy. That sentiment is both patronising and condescending. Many of us who read those books also read and enjoyed Ms. Austin's classic. I am very disappointed. I bought this thinking it would be a contemporary telling of one of my favorite stories. Instead I ended up with a poor replica of the original. Do not waste your money or your time.

P&P is in the Public Domain so while authors can't outright copy it they can create works around it. It's called creative license, however I agree with you. Tired of seeing the original book bastardized in contemporary romance, chick lit, and fricking Hallmark movies. Time to let this trend die.

Hm, this seems like plagiarism to me. Did you get permission from Jane Austen beyond the grave? I think not.
