Title: A most handsome gentleman
Author: Suzan Lauder
Publisher: Meryton press
A most handsome gentleman is Suzan Lauder’s latest novel and is a variation of Pride and prejudice with a comic twist.
The comicness in this novel comes from the significant change in Mr Collins’s appearance, considered by all the women he meets the most beautiful man they’ve ever seen (including Lady Catherine and Anne!!!).
This, as a presupposition for a story, is already very fun.
Since Mr Collins wants to marry Jane in order to give the famous olive branch, the dynamics of the story change, and in particular Mr. Darcy will not try to separate Bingley from his beloved angel. This creates really funny jokes between the two contenders.
So, of course, there will be some changes in the development of the love story between Darcy and Elizabeth, that is described in a very sweet way (I loved many of the scenes that see them together).
If you read through the lines of this novel you can see a very deep moral, that is, not all that is beautiful out is also inside and that sometimes you have to deviate from the opinions of the mass.
The reading was very fluent and fun, it really gave me some good moments.
Congratulations to the author for having made such a famous masterpiece comic while still keeping Jane Austen’s style.
