Pied and Prodigious

Pied and Prodigious Review

'It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a man in possession of a wife, must be in want of a good fortune.' There is much excitement in Longlawn when two men with tall hats enter the district. Mothers buy new dresses for their daughters, fathers polish up on their fencing skills, and Mr Bonnet tackles the perilous journey through the stinging nettles to call upon the new occupants of Nettlefield Park. The ditsy Jane Bonnet soon falls for Mr Blingley with all his gold jewellery, but her sister, the ever-prodigious Lizzy, very much dislikes Mr Blingley's friend, Mr Dicey, whose pied coat and tall hat strike fear into the local populace. This is a story of excessive fashion, high heels, large wardrobes, tall hats - oh, and romance!

    Pied and Prodigious by D.M. Andrews is an entertaining and well written spoof of Pride and Prejudice. This isn’t a gentle satire, this is a straight comedy send up (not that there’s anything ungen...

    This book is a little gem! I was privileged to read this pre-publication and I enjoyed it so much! I am a very keen Jane Austen fan and have read Pride and Prejudice at least half a dozen times so I a...

  • Louise Sparrow

    Pied and Prodigious is a humorous take on Pride and prejudice, and as such, whether or not it is good is very much subject to an individual's sense of humour... it does not really appeal to mine. The ...

    There are many fanfic versions of Pride and Pred., this is not one of them.This is a tongue in cheek spoof of the popular story. Actually the word spoof doesn't really do it the justice it deserves. I...
