If Jane Austen Was On Facebook
Austenbook tells the classic tale of the Bennets and Mr. Darcy through Facebook news feeds. If you’ve read Pride & Prejudice, or any other Austen book, the clever little annotations such as “Elizabeth Bennet promises never to dance with Mr. Darcy” and “Caroline Bingley is all astonishment” are highly entertaining.
Austenbook creator DeeDee Baldwin credits her inspiration to Sarah Schmelling, who wrote a Facebook news feed version of Hamlet. “Hamlet thinks it’s annoying when your uncle marries your mother right after your dad dies“…”Horatio says well that was tragic.”
