Book Description

1 Feb 2009
Witty, romantic and insightful, Darcy's Passions captures the original style and sardonic humor of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice while turning the entire story on its head. Written from the perspective of Fitzwilliam Darcy, this novel tells his version of an improbable, even obsessive relationship with a most impossible woman—Elizabeth Bennet. This novel reveals Darcy's passion and conviction but also his turmoil. Darcy knows that duty to family and estate demands he choose a woman of refined tastes. Yet, what his mind tells him to do and what his heart knows to be true tear him in opposite directions. He loves a woman he first denies for being unworthy, but it is he who is found wanting when Elizabeth Bennet refuses his proposal of marriage. Devastated, Darcy must search his soul and transform himself into the man she can love and respect.

2.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable enough 23 Feb 2012

Darcy's Passions: Pride and Prejudice Retold Through His Eyes

Anyone who is familiar with the original book will probably be disappointed: the standard of writing is vastly inferior. I found the last part of the book (post 2nd proposal) tedious and repetitive. however, the whole thing is an enjoyable enough read and if it encourages people to read the original, then it's worthwhile

Mr. Darcy. That iconic romantic hero who launched a thousand sequels! A quick and very unscientific audit of Amazon.com listings revealed over thirty-five books published in the last fifteen years inspired by him! That's a lot of Mr. Darcy out there being a haughty heartthrob. Now in his latest outing, Darcy's Passions: Pride and Prejudice Retold Through His Eyes, we are offered yet another chance to relive the famous love story, but from his perspective.

Fitzwilliam Darcy arrives in Hertfordshire with his best friend Mr. Bingley to assist him with his new estate Netherfield Park convinced that the locals will be bumpkins, and SO below his notice. He attends the local Assembly dance where his predictions prove true; even the reputed local beauty Elizabeth Bennet is only tolerable, and not handsome enough to tempt him. And so on it goes; the same story that we all know and love. Their courtship lasts a little over a year and in that time we experience all the misapprehensions and conflicts that define their relationship. All told they are only together three out the twelve months, so what did Darcy do in the in-between time, especially after his rejected first marriage proposal and their renewed acquaintance at Pemberley? What transpired in his mind that so changed him that he was a different man when they meet again? Now we do not have to guess at the answers any longer as they have been neatly explained for us like a Sparks Notes re-telling of Pride and Prejudice as author Regina Jeffers literally walks us through each important scene including complete passages of dialogue from Austen's novel framed by her reinterpretations of some of the most beautiful lines in classic literature. Ouch!

2.0 out of 5 stars Slightly Dissapointing 2 Sep 2011
By TM
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I admit when I saw yet another "Darcy view" I was tempted not to buy it, the fact that the authoress is a teacher who often speaks about Regency England persuaded me that this would be a more accurate version than others. However the times when Elizabeth was separated from the hero were covered in such bland prose and vague happenings I may as well have read the original. I have many bones to pick with the Kindle Edition, such as there should be a space after a full stop! Basic stuff that again and again intrude into the text and jar the reader into thinking more about Microsoft Word than Pride and Prejudice! However the MOST annoying bit of the book is to come across such speeches as "I conspired with your sisters last fall to separate you..." etc. Since when would an Englishman, never mind a regency one, refer to Autumn as FALL? Again and again it jars you and interrupts what enjoyment you can get out of the book. Altogether, I wouldn't buy this book again if somehow I "lost" my copy, the only saving grace is the post wedding bits to the book, which attempt to skirt bedroom activities, while still mentioning them, but at least we had a storyline at that point!
p.s spelling fixed, was in a hurry when I posted this and never checked it.
