The Secret Diary of Lydia Bennet is such a fun read. You know I love Jane Austen, and of course Pride and Prejudice is her best known work. Lydia Bennet is the youngest and most annoying sister in that story. Natasha Farrant has taken that character and filled in the gaps in her story. Austen never told us how Lydia ends up running off with Wickham. Farrant has imagined a very interesting twist. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book. Because I knew how things ended up for Lydia, I wasn’t expecting some much suspense. Farrant made me feel for Lydia and even respect her quite a bit. She is a complex character in this story. She’s very independent and strong willed, like Elizabeth. Re-tellings and spin-offs always impress me. And this book was no exception. Farrant was able to weave a very interesting story between the known beginning and known ending of Lydia’s story. I don’t want to say too much, but if you’re an Austen fan-fiction reader, I think you’ll love this story.
