I'm no Austen purist. Truth is, no one could do a proper sequel beside Jane Austen. But still, I read P&P adaptations. Some I've actually really liked, but this one was AWFUL. I tried to finish it... Literally forced myself to keep going, but I couldn't. The language used is often times vulgar; the side stories so uninteresting I skipped some. Darcy and Elizabeth are constantly having sex. Whatever. I've read others where they also get intimate and the book was still good, but this book is the equivalent of bad porno with bad actors. The Darcy and Elizabeth depicted here are nothing like the original. I got to point where I was skipping around to find "the good parts" but I just couldn't anymore. Too bad I bought the actual book. I've had it for a long time and just today I tried to read it again and once again couldn't.

The writing in the book is overly pretentious, the write tries to use Regency style vocabulary but over shoots. Also there are words of Latin and Greek that are absolutely incorrect and even some French (?) Words that are entirety made up.
Every character is protraied as an extra of themselves, and Lizzy is insecure and anxious to the point of total OOC.
I am the type of person that cannot put down a book if its interesting. And have forced myself to finish others that I found tedious. But for the first time in 30 years I have abandoned a book. I could not forceyselff to read more than 100 pages. The discrepancies of the era, language, customs and characters was simply too much. For the first time I was angered and irate towards a writer and publishing company for lack of research!

On top if that the book I received had water damage and was frayed in several spots.
I am glad that I didn't spend much on this drivel. Stay far away!

I enjoyed the book but I gave it 3 stars for a few reasons.

The book is long. There were times that I couldn't put it down and times that I could care less about what was happening.. This can be good and bad. It took a couple of months to finish the book but I found that I enjoyed being able to put it down when a certain story line was complete then pick it up later to continue. Parts of the story were very funny (Mr. Collins...), parts were romantic (Darcy riding in to save Elizabeth and administer justice) and parts were unbelievable (Lizzy jumping from the balcony into Darcy's arms).

Spoiler Alert! I wish she had written more about how Jane found out about Bingley's affair and how they resolved their issues. Did their sex life improve? Did I miss it because this was a part that I read quickly?

Yes, they had a lot of sex in the beginning of the book but, this was the beginning of their marriage. The amount of sex lessened as the story and their marriage continued - just like real life. I did not find it offensive. Those sections are easily skipped.

Georgiana knew what she wanted and figured out how to get it. This story line was a little unbelievable to me but still fun to read.

The book wrapped up too quickly - like many Pride & Prejudice books. This was a long book so the ending should not have been rushed. Not everything was tied into a neat bow. I did not like the very end of the book. It left me a little unsatisfied. I would have liked an epilogue.

I give it a 4. It seems someone had too much fun with a thesaurus. I've studied Victorian literature, and have never noticed the prefix be- to be used often, but this writer uses it at odd times. Not a deal-breaker, and certainly not grammatically incorrect. Putting that aside, the story casts a shadow on the illustrious Mr. Darcy that I didn't much care for. In the original, he was said to be respectable, and unforgiving of displeasing offenses. That having been said, I feel it was out of character (though not historically incorrect in general) for Darcy to have come to his marriage bed already experienced.
I give it a 4 because while those things do bother me, the plot was well-written, including the historical reference of the war in France. Just read it and you'll see what I mean.

While this is an extremely interesting story that blends the usual characters with very interesting new ones it has the same problem that many adaptations suffer from. Writers seem to believe that in order to emulate Miss Austen they must find and use any archaic, unused, or simply obscure word and load as many on the reader as possible. I fortunately use my Kindle to read and can easily access the dictionary. But the need to pause for researching definition every few minutes gets annoying.

While I believe most certainly in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice original both Elizabeth, because of her fiery temperament, and Darcy, because of his deep breathtaking stares that almost numb his existence, both characters were deeply in love and very passionate. Every woman falls madly in love with Mr. Darcy, especially after viewing BBC's 1995 version of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice: tall, dark, handsome, rich, and a heartthrob (Colin Firth ) whose virility is matched only by his utter devotion to his Lizzy. That being said, Austen's Mr. Darcy, both stoic and filled with following propriety at all times, would not have taken Lizzy on every horizontal piece of furniture imaginable, not to mention, the several vertical assassinations written about and probably not as often. As Linda Berdoll has written our hero, every breathing female would be wanting! Enjoyed this hero, just not Austen's hero.

This is not an easy book to read at first (given the authenticity of its early 19th century vernacular), but it’s worth learning the language, because this is a delightful, masterfully written book. The characters are largely true to the original, and the relationship between Darcy and Elizabeth is one every sane human being longs for. I laughed, I cried. I loved it, from beginning to end!
