After completely loving the web series, which ended some months ago, I was incredibly happy to hear about the release of a book on it and bought it right away. And what can I say? I loved the book as much as I loved the series. For readers who haven’t watched the series, it will still be possible to understand the main plotline. However, to see Lizzie talking and interacting with her siblings as well as her friends and to see her react to certain situations right as they happen, is definitely worth a watch. The Secret Diary of Lizzie Bennet is an amazing addition to the web series however. The readers get to re-live every situation from Lizzie’s point of view in detail and important points of the plot that are only mentioned, but never fully explained in the web series (such as what exactly Darcy writes to Lizzie in his letter), are talked about and revealed in the book. As both the book and the web series have the same writers though, it all seems more of a complete package of the story if you have both together. Especially knowing about all of the character’s posts on their social media sites during the course of the web series as well, the whole adaption becomes a very round story that can be watched and understood from different point of views.
