Elizabeth Bennet is the wittiest and most attractive heroine in English literature. And for the first time, in "Being Elizabeth Bennet", you are given the opportunity to star in the most popular novel in the English language: "Pride and Prejudice".You will be faced throughout this book with delicate challenges and dangerous choices. Whether you're accepting Mr Darcy the first time he professes his attachment, deciding to elope with Mr Wickham or avoiding a murderous Lady Catherine de Bourgh, this is a chance to rewrite Austen's most famous book. You decide who to marry and when. And if you have always preferred Mr Knightley's sophistication or have a sneaking admiration for the odious Mr Collins then you can marry them instead.However, make choices with caution: "Being Elizabeth Bennet" is packed with characters and plot twists to thwart your happy union with Pemberley's most eligible bachelor. You must complete five stages - and successfully negotiate your way through Austen's five other novels - before you can choose to accept Mr Darcy. But if the outcome does not suit, simply return to page one and create another new Jane Austen adventure.

"'Ever wanted to travel around inside an Austen novel and wonder how you'd fare meeting Darcy for the first time? Think you could be smart enough to see through Wickham's little game? Being Elizabeth Bennet will give YOU the chance to find out and is both amusing, enlightening and un-Austen-tatious.' Jasper Fforde"
