review 1: They should have been one book but they were was still pretty good. I'm a fan of Jane Austen and Jane Austen retellings so keep that in mind. However, aside from feeding my Jane Austen craving, I thought the characters were well developed, the story had enough happening that my interest was peaked throughout all 4 volumes, and the overall writing style was smooth and easy to read. Georgia, the Elizabeth-like character, was occasionally a bit over-zealous with her veganisms but that was kind of the point. She was like a sledgehammer trying to do a feather's job. Michael, the Darcy-like character was much more redeemable then I initially expected him to be and even attractive in a "I'm not perfect but I'm loveable anyway" kind of way. Both characters were like that act... moreually. The story doesn't exactly retell P&P but uses it as a general template and borrows names. I thought it was well done. It should have been 1 book instead of 4 in my opinion but I guess it's a nice nod to the volume style of publishing of Jane Austen' s time. I definitely recommend all 4 volumes to readers with a love for Jane Austen retellings and I will likely read them again in the future.
review 2: Pride and Prep School was a short, sweet story. The writing style was interesting and the execution was done pretty well. I wish instead of breaking out this book into so many parts, it was just compiled into one single proper book because I was genuinely disappointed when it ended so abruptly. Anyway, the characters were funny and even though I found Georgia very very judgmental and annoying sometimes, I didn't exactly mind it because the title of the novella does have the word Pride in it and I had been expecting the snarkiness. That still didn't change the fact that she treated Micheal like crap (just when I was actually beginning to like the guy, nonetheless) and that grated on ym nerves big time. Even after that, I still couldn't stop reading it as I was curious to find out what'll happen next. Unfortunately, by the time Georgia realized her mistakes and things actually started getting fun, the story finished off. Whatta buzzkill. -.-Overall, Pride and Prep school was an okay read. Too short for my taste, honestly but if you loved Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice (like me) then I'd say you should definitely try this one! Although, it'd be better if you kept all three of the novellas with you and read them back to back. (it literally took me an hour to finish this one :P) less
