4.0 out of 5 stars Very funny in Places. 10 Feb 2008
Format:Paperback
I have just finished reading the above sequel and thought it was enjoyable. The story is mainly about Darcy and Elizabeth and Charlotte Collins though the other characters of P & P are mentioned, at first I had to get used the fact that Lizzy calls Darcy by the name of Robert rather than Fitzwilliam.

I enjoyed what happens with Mr Collins he arrives at Pemberley with a terrible chill and is confind to bed for the whole of christmas and new year so Charlotte makes friends with Phillip Aston a widower friend of Darcy's. We learn later on that Mr Collins due to his illness has put on weight and Lady Catherine makes him ware stays ones that squeak as well, which I found most entertaining imagining Mr Collins dancing with them on and squeaking at the same time it would be hilarious fun.

Lady Catherine is as obnoxious as usual but in the end gets her due because she gets cast off by Darcy for trying to interfer with his marriage. Towards the end of the book Mr Collins dies of consumption and Charlotte is free to marry again. Due to not being a purist for JA I found this book to be a excellent read and extreamly funny in places.

1.0 out of 5 stars Totally misses the mark as a P & P Sequel 1 Oct 2000
Format:Paperback
If you like romance novels, then perhaps you would enjoy this book, but as a sequel to P & P - it completely misses the mark. Throughout the entire story, I kept thinking - did the author really read Jane Austen's work? Just a few of the things that nagged me were: Lizzy calling Darcy 'Robert' (through the whole book), Jane cracking jokes about Mr. Collins, Jane's & Lizzy's wedding being a month apart, amicable evenings at the Hurst's, Georgiana & Caroline Bingley being great friends & Lizzy promoting a romance between Charlotte & a widower - though she and Mr. Collins are still married. To me, it just didn't add up, but as I said, if you just like romance novels, perhaps you would like it - I'm not a fan of them myself.

I was very disappointed with the very un-Jane Austen-like writing - besides the grating name change of Fitzwilliam to Robert. The constant use of the familiar first name was exceedingly jarring and the ending was absurdly feel-good and predictable with an incredibly fast wrap up of the many storylines.

While there are other "sequels" preferable to this one, it's certainly fine for the Austen fan who simply cannot get enough of the delightful characters. This story offers up a suppositional look at Elizabeth's first Christmas at Pemberley and Charlotte Collins' flirtation and attraction to a gentleman guest. Charlotte is one of P&P's sweetest and dogmatic characters and Hampson seems to want something better for her than Mr. Collins. (And yes, it may grate purists that she's renamed Darcy "Robert.") This isn't the most memorable of sequels, but an earnest effort.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly like the real thing... 25 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
When reading sequels one doesn't really expect such quality as in originals, but this one does have a potential to itself. There are moments when characters are real enough and story has some interesting twists that you'd not expect. So if you enjoy a nice romance, try it, but you won't find real Austen inside.
