My Rating: ★★★★★

After the deaths of their parents and the public disgrace of their youngest sister, the Bennet ladies are alone in the world. It falls upon Elizabeth to navigate their way, a nearly impossible task given their meager funds. When she becomes reacquainted with Mr. Darcy, she hopes she has found her salvation. But it is ruin he offers her.

This book contains dark themes and scenes of a sensual nature. Reader discretion is advised.


The Ruin of Elizabeth Bennet (TRoEB) was unlike any other Pride and Prejudice rewrite, in a good way. The description caught my eye when it popped up after I’d finished a different book, and, since it is available on Kindle Unlimited, I saw no reason not to give it a try.

I quickly found myself immersed in a completely new, yet still wonderful, version of Pride and Prejudice. I read through it quickly, hardly wanting to put it down.

The relationships seem realistic and true to Jane Austen’s original characters. I’m a little saddened by Mr. Bingley’s uncertain fate, but Colonel Fitzwilliam’s more than makes up for it.

My only “complaint” is that I noticed a handful of errors, but not enough to knock off a star.

I highly recommend TRoEB whether or not you have Kindle Unlimited. It’s a great story, and you’re sure to enjoy it.
