Product Description

Review

Mr. Darcy, Vampyre by Amanda Grange is not your typical Pride & Prejudice rendition. This story is a true love story with paranormal influence and a grand adventure no less exciting than that of Indiana Jones. I think almost the entire population of the cultured world must know about our beloved Mr. Darcy and his beautiful Lizzy. What they don't know is the dark secrets that will chase the couple all across Europe thrusting them into a frenzy of action and adventure while questioning their love and their sanity. A heady mixture of events that will lull poor Lizzy into a thrall yet send her skittering away at the drop of a pin. Shattered nerves be damned! Our author has given us a treasure of culture to please even the most delicate palate, a delicious romance of times gone by and a fantasy world that will surely make you quake in your boots. Ms. Grange has taken us through the most important cities of Europe that will make the ton of England titillate in anticipation for the tasty tales of a wedding tour that is sure to be the best of the best.

I feel compelled to write this because `Mr Darcy, Vampyre' is seriously one of the worst books I have ever read. Aside from the obvious, that I didn't realise there was a whole genre of Pride and Prejudice (and similar) romantic twaddle spin offs, to then crossover this nonsense into cash-in post-Twilght vampire fiction, and to top it off have it written by someone whose plotting and character development is all but non-existent...well, the whole thing is just a shameful waste of space. Elizabeth and Darcy are two of the great characters of English literature. Grange reduces them to the two-dimensional parodies of themselves, the stock-in-trade of pulp romance. In terms of plot (ha!), there are over two hundred pages of practically nothing, but just so you know, in the 18th century they used bathing machines, spelled `vampire' funny, and syllabubs were popular desserts. Seriously, when I was at school, we once had an assignment to write a page of Elizabeth's diary `in the style of Jane Austen' - this is like reading a whole book of such poorly written, immature imitation. To give you an idea - on page 272, with only about 30 pages left, I was desperately hoping that something might actually happen. What happens is, Elizabeth has a little wander around a beach. "The sand was hot and she hopped from foot to foot, sinking into the fine grains which enveloped her small white toes as she landed until she reached the firmer sand. It was dark and wet and better able to support her weight, and behind her she left perfect imprints of her well-shaped feet". It is so important to me that she has well-shaped feet. It is truly a sign she is deserving of Darcy's love.Read more ›

Format: Paperback
Honestly, I blame Stephenie Meyer for the existence of this book. For some reason, people are equating her sparkly vampire romance novel "Twilight" to the classic, understated novel of manners, "Pride and Prejudice."

So you can probably guess the entire point of "Mr Darcy, Vampyre" -- to portray the first months of the Darcy marriage, in which Mr. Darcy spontaneously morphs from a happy and contented man into... Edward Cullen. Amanda Grange admittedly does her best to stick to Jane Austen's style and manners, but these characters are definitely not hers -- and the meandering, increasingly surreal plot ended up just giving me a headache.

After their double wedding with Jane and Bingley, Lizzie and Darcy's planned wedding tour of the Lake District is cancelled -- Darcy wants to show Lizzie the continent. So Lizzie is whisked off to post-Revolutionary France, and finds herself mingling with Darcy's seductive, glamorous French relatives and friends. And despite a brief attack from Lady Catherine, she and Darcy head off into the deep forests of the Alps to see another old relative of his, Count Polidori (oooo, a homage).

Unsurprisingly, Lizzie suspects that something weird is up with her beloved Darcy, especially since he hasn't turned up in the bedroom at all. And apparently the rioting villagers trying to kill Darcy and all his friends'n'family hasn't clued her in that these people aren't just aristocrats. As their wedding tour of Europe continues into other ancient cities and palaces, Lizzie begins to suspect (about time!) that there's something weird up with her husband. Apparently she hasn't noticed the title of the book.

This book is very immersive and sets the scene beautifully, each page is resplendent with vivid descriptions of clothing, place settings and what the sky looked like...

However the reason I enjoyed Pride and Prejudice was not because it accurately described Elizabeth's dress in each scene, it was because of the startling wit, double entendres and interesting plot.

This book is a wonderful extrapolation of its predecessor except for the fact that it completely lacks any wit, interesting dialogue or in fact anything to hold the reader's attention or engage you with the characters.

An utterly pointless read, not fit to wipe your behind with.

***SPOILERS WITHIN***

Firstly. This book is nothing like Twilight. It bears absolutely no resemblance to Twilight; and anyone who says otherwise is a literary snob who should stick to reading the classics and leave contemporary fiction alone.

Now, onto THIS book.

I've never read Pride & Prejudice. As much as I like the story (from various screen adaptations) I just couldn't get on with the writing style. However, I have no reservations in stating that the story is a classic. As such, when I saw Mr. Darcy, Vampyre, I was very intrigued. Bad reviews prevented me from buying it when it was released; but when I saw it in a charity shop I bought it - figuring that even if I didn't like the book the money was going to a good cause.

Mr. D, Vampyre was quite a departure for me. I've never read a book in this style before and I found myself easily falling into the rhythms of the storytelling. Amanda Grange's descriptive technique is, at times, beautiful and I found it easy to imagine what she was describing. Unlike other reviewers I was never bored. Despite the fact that the first 200+ pages have very little happening I still found it to be a very enjoyable read. However, I did feel that for someone 'so in love' Elizabeth was being a bit dense for not figuring out what was wrong with her beloved Darcy. Still, I was able to put that aside and carry on.

The travesty is that 30 or so pages from the end the author throws such a huge curveball at the reader it completely pulled me out of the story. A cure? For vampirism? I'm sorry, but I've never heard of such a thing when an older vampire is concerned. Newborns, yes, but never older ones. Ok, despite my reservations, I perservered.
