Well, we’ve seen Pride & Prejudice for zombie fans, Pride & Prejudice for doodlers, and Pride & Prejudice for babies too young to know books as anything besides delicious teething toys. So I can’t say I’m entirely surprised that someone has finally come out with a version of Jane Austen’s 19th century classic reinterpreted for the Gilded Age of the Text Message, with Emoji Pride and Prejudice.
Humorist Katherine Furman’s upcoming book, illustrated by Chuck Gonzales, retells the classic story of the Bennet sisters in — you guessed it — emoji. It evidently answers the pressing question we’ve all been wondering for decades: What would happen if the characters could have texted one another?
Presumably there are no eggplants or peaches in here. They are upstanding young women, those Bennett sisters. But hey, I can’t be sure what would have happened had they combined iOS 10 with a few too many Netherfield ball cocktails.
