Book Review: Guinea Pig Pride & Prejudice

We don't usually do book reviews on Cavy Savvy. Unlike blogs. books are made of paper, and paper is way too tempting to chew on. However. today we're going to make an exception this time and review A Guinea Pig Pride & Prejudice.

The original Pride and Prejudice, according to Wikipedia, "is a novel of manners by Jane Austen, first published in 1813. The story follows the main character, Elizabeth Bennet, as she deals with issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage in the society of the landed gentry of the British Regency."

Is it just us, or is anyone else starting to feel a little sleepy just from reading that sentence? And the actual text of the story isn't any better. Fortunately. in the guinea pig version, we have pictures of guinea pigs in costumes to liven up this musty old story:

We would have preferred a more interesting story, and frankly don't understand why the original Pride and Prejudice did so well among so many humans. Fortunately, we do understand and appreciate the great guinea pig costumes in the guinea pig version! We'll give Guinea Pig Pride & Prejudice 4 out of 5 stars!


  1. Hey, our human has this book! We weren't impressed, either. We wish all those plants on the cover were real so we could eat them!

  2. Our Slave bought this book too. She can't stand Jane Austen novels but wanted to own all of these gorgeous guinea pigtures.

    She also has the Guinea Pig Nativity by the same publishers.

    We'll give them both 5 stars for the pigtures and costumes.

    1. That was pretty much our thought process for giving it 4/5 stars. Great pictures, boring story. We probably would have given it 5/5 stars if it was just a picture book. :-)
