Review

Excessively Diverted is a quick and pleasant read. I enjoyed it very much. -- From a Review by Linda Waldemar,The Republic of Pemberley 31st August,2002

I loved the new characters and almost forgot that they weren’t original to Pride and Prejudice. -- A pre-publication opinion of Excessively Diverted by J.D.Matthews July 2002

I was relieved that Juliette Shapiro wasn’t tempted to inflict unhappiness on the newly married Darcys. -- An independent reader’s viewpoint. Jennifer Carrington – 5th July 2002

I was shocked about Darcy and Wickham but was so enchanted by this lovely follow on that I now believe the events to be entirely possible. -- A shocked independant reader. Lynne Mc Bain 2002 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
Juliette Shapiro's Fitzwilliam Darcy is peculiar creature. He frightens nurses, has 'male only' conversations and yet manages to remain quite recogniseable as Jane Austen's favourite leading man. I fell in love with Elizabeth Darcy (nee Bennet) all over again when I read Excessively Diverted. She remained playful and not entirely against the idea of a jolly good romp through the woods. The Bar Sinister this isn't but there are enough sensitive references to the unbridled love that the Darcys experience to make the reader feel that Lizzy and Darcy have finally 'unbuttoned'. I hated Lady Catherine in this book but had to hand it to the writer for inspiring such a passionate dislike in me. It was a quick compelling read with an ending that left a bit of a lump my throat. Juliette Shapiro is as delighful a sequelist as ever appeared in print!
I actually purchased Excessively Diverted as an e-book but will definately order it in hard copy to keep on my bookshelf ready for a re-read.

I really enjoyed this book. The darcys are very much in love, and you do get glimpses of their private doings, but none are explicit or untasteful. They are very sweet with each other! Elizabeth retains her playful nature and her spark and zest for life, and continues to tease darcy but it is obvious she loves him a great deal. she also retains her passion for walking! Darcy is hilarious, and the author has developed his character into something surprisingly relaxed. he is a triumph and retains his temper!!!The affairs of wickham and lydia are the only bits i disliked-i thought the descision of the darcys was a bit far fetched. I did also think that it ended slightly abruptly. I thought you saw too little of jane and bingley and slightly too much of her other sisters, but this is all minor. Mr and mrs bennet are perfect-mr bennet is just as barbed and mrs bennet just as silly and affected. She is ridiculously hilarious! Mr collins makes a return and is just as patronizing as ever. caroline bingley is also featured with great sucess. This book will not appeal to those who are not a bit of a romantic, but i am so i seriously enjoyed this and would reccomend it to anyone who want to hear more of pemberely. A worthy purchase!!!

Format: Paperback
I bought Excessively Diverted thinking that it would be a good sequel to Pride and Prejudice.
I was very disappointed. The plot is implausible, the characters' behaviour illogical, the ending abrupt. Too many subplots that could have been exploited are only hinted at, then abandoned, and eventually given a hasty conclusion just before the whole story ends.
The whole story is clumsy and badly structured.
Better buy something else.

This book takes first prize as the worst book that I have EVER read. I've been driven to write this review just to warn you to not waste your money. I only read it until the end to see if it would it would improve... it didn't! It is predictable, poorly written and badly edited. You won't believe the drivel that comes from Elizabeth's and Darcy's mouths, nothing like their original characters in Pride and Prejudice. My advice is to skip this and read The Bar Sinister, it may be a bit too explicit, but at least the characters and the plot are believable.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. F. L. Buckley on 17 July 2007
Format: Paperback
I am a huge fan of P&P and was aprehensive of buying a sequal as it would obviously not be by Jane Austen and feared it would be of a lower standard and would not do either P&P/Jane Austen credit. However, I did read this book and I really really enjoyed it! The author managed to keep the characters true to form unlike some other authors whom on some occassions i actually wonder if they ever actually saw or read the original P&P. I just can't stop buying and reading about the Darcy's!

Beware, this book has already been published in the UK as "Excessively Diverted". This is not mentioned on Amazon anywhere! Although this book is no longer available it is the same book but with a different title.

Format: Paperback
I was initially very impressed with the flavour of the work.The author has obviously a feel for Austen and the language, so evocative of the period. P & P is a book I have recently re-read and to come across a sequel of this calibre was a real joy. It is pacey and I found myself sad at its ending, but what a lovely ending it is. I have read a few sequels and I have to say this one does it for me. The Wickham scenario being particularly interestingly handled.

Format: Paperback
I was disappointed by this sequel to P&P. The plot is plausible enough, and Juliette Shapiro has tried hard to retain characterisation and language. But the latter is very contrived, and it frequently feels as though it has only a veneer of the 19th century. However, this would not have condemned the book in my eyes - what killed it for me was the total (apparent) lack of copy-editorial and/or proof-reading input. The typographical errors are legion, and include incorrect spellings, poor syntax and incorrectly placed punctuation marks. The author deserves better from her publisher.
