Okay if you haven’t heard about the Lizzie Bennet Diaries you need to just go to youtube right now and search for it! You will become addicted! The Lizzie Bennet Diaries is a modernized adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel, Pride and Prejudice and it is told mostly through the view point of Lizzie in her video diaries. Of course throughout the videos you get a wide range of wonderful characters that help tell this story. I think this is a wonderful way to get people that probably wouldn’t have otherwise read or watch Pride and Prejudice to watch it and get the story. This series is the wonderful idea and creativity of Hank Green and Bernie Su.
You get to learn about these wonderful sisters during these videos as Jane falls for Bing Lee and Darcy comes in and causes problems and the love/ hate relationship between Darcy and Lizzie begins. Watch as Lydia gets into trouble and Lizzie has to try and bail her out!

What’s really cool about this series is each character can be found on social media sites like Twitter and Facebook and you can really interact with them. If you go and watch a couple of videos I would encourage you to go and like them on Facebook and Twitter and keep updated that way. They post new videos every Monday and Thursday so you can get new videos to help you get through the work week!
