Rating: 1.5/5 stars

When Lizzy Bennet first meets Darcy Williams, there is an instant dislike between them. As much as they try to avoid it their paths keep crossing, and they each start to see a different side to the other. Their tentative friendship is soon tested, but will they realise how they really feel?

The Story of Lizzy and Darcy is a modern day, same-sex adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.
Wow this was a trainwreck. And that is putting it nicely. I must admit that I am not a huge fan of Pride and Prejudice, but I am a fan of f/f retellings of classic stories so I picked this up. But yikes.

This story was just not good. I didn't enjoy it at all and honestly should have stopped after about 6% of the way through. It was so hard to read and super forced. I don't even know what else to say because it was just so bad. 

The characters were not well written, the plot was boring, and it wasn't edited very well. So much of it was really heavy handed as well and I just was not a fan. I am glad there is a f/f retelling of this novel but this is not the novel I want for it.
