Pride and Prejudice: The Jewess and the Gentile

Pride and Prejudice: The Jewess and the Gentile - Lev Raphael I have very mixed feelings about these "mash-ups" and this is actually the first one I've read. I really enjoy the articles by the (secondary) author on the Huffington Post, which is where I first heard about this. The idea of making the Bennets an Anglo-Jewish family is certainly a clever one and those bits are mostly woven into the original story pretty seamlessly (Darcy disparages the "Levantine cast" of Elizabeth's features in his original put-down, for example), but I still feel that these books are very much taking advantage of great works of literature, the vast majority (probably over 90%) of which was written by someone else. Since I did feel that this was well done, I'm only giving it one star fewer than the original.
