Review: Eligible: A modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice

Eligible: A modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice Eligible: A modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice by Curtis Sittenfeld
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I was laughing by the 3rd page. But the new/retelling of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, while abundant in humor, was almost totally lacking in romance.
When Mr. and Mrs. Bennet (yes, only one T) are the most developed characters (and they were hysterical), and Darcy is all but absent and completely one dimensional, something is askew.
It was entertaining, but I missed the angst, drama and longing that one expects between "Liz & Darcy."
