With just the right mix of sassiness, awkwardness, pop culture, and high school drama, this contemporary retelling of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE with a Desi twist is a fun listen. Narrator Deepa Samuel portrays Leela Bose and Firoze Darcy. Both are part of the high school forensics teams at their respective schools. Leela is a passionate speech competitor attending public school, and Firoze is a fierce debater from a snobby private school. Samuel infuses them both with believability while also helping listeners visualize the story's settings and conflicts. The tone and pacing of the narration keep listeners invested in a large cast of multifaceted characters, particularly Leela and Firoze--individually and as potentially romantic rivals.
