We’ve collected the best novels inspired by Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice—and you don’t want to miss any of these retellings or spinoffs

No exaggeration: Pride and Prejudice is one of the greatest stories that’s ever been told. And we’ve read Jane Austen’s epic love story between Lizzie Bennet and Mr. Darcy more times than we can count—sometimes flipping from the last page to the first page in a continuous loop.

But there’s way more fun to be had. Literally hundreds of authors have used Pride and Prejudice as an inspiration, jumping off point, scaffolding, or template for their own stories. Some people change the time period or location. Some people change the perspective or genre. Some people add zombies. And many of them are completely delightful.

How can you wade through all of the professional-level Pride and Prejudice fan fiction? Don’t worry. We’ve done the work for you. Below, find our top 10 favorite adaptations and rehashings and continuations that can help you continue to enjoy the classic story again and again.
