About the Author

Jane Austen is one of the most beloved authors of all time. She never married, and as far as we know, she died a virgin. More's the pity. Michelle M. Pillow, author of All Things Romance, is a multi-published, award-winning author known mostly for her paranormal, futuristic and dark fantasy romance. Aside from these, she also writes contemporary, fantasy, historical and erotic romance.

The only bits worth reading were copied from the original. I thought this might be quite fun but sadly not. If you like this genre, try Abigail Reynolds - she does it much better.

A beautiful love story retold with more romance and love than the original. It does paint the youngest Bennett daughter as more wanton than would have acceptable in period of history, but it doesn't take away all the misunderstandings and angst. I would recommend this romance to all Austin followers.

When will people stop writing these mash ups of classic literature? Hasn't this dead horse been flogged enough? Time to call it a day, people.

Unless you want a B movie in a book. Then I'd recommend Sherlock Holmes and the Flying Zombie Death Monkeys.

I recieved the book in good time only to be disapointed by the quality of the book.
The binding quality was so poor that the pages were uneven.
Promptly returned as I love books and love keeping them in good condition so when i buy one and it comes in poor condition Its more than a little dissapointing

Avoid this book 16 Jan 2011
By Mark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is (almost) the entire text of "Pride and Prejudice" with some sex thrown in here and there.

As if to be purposely distracting, Ms. Pillow's additions are in bold, except when they are not. Many times she adds details to Austen's text without bolding, and in all of those instances it is when she wants to ensure that the reader "caught" Austen's meaning. Clearly, Pillow believes that the average reader is not intelligent enough to understand P&P without the benefit of her powerful insight.

Also, the author eliminates some scenes from P&P altogether. For one example, the scene where Lydia and Mary meet Jane and Elizabeth in Meryton and ride back to Longbourn together -- deleted. Why?? Evidently, Ms. Pillow -- even in her infinite wisdom -- did not recognize the importance of this and other scenes she deemed unnecessary. That particular scene is quite important not only in giving us a better picture of Lydia's character (but I guess Ms. Pillow preferred her bizarre rendition of Lydia), but also because it tells us about what happened between Wickham and Miss King. The author does not understand 'Pride and Prejudice' as much as she thinks she does.

Jane Austen is rolling her eyes in her grave. Her name should be removed from this insult of a novel.

Save your money. Or take your money and buy 'Impulse and Initiative' or 'By Force of Instinct' by Abigail Reynolds instead.

Terribly disappointing 10 Jan 2011
By Shopper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am disappointed greatly in this book. I thought it would be a guilty pleasure, but instead it was just a few cheap sex scenes thrown into the original P&P. As such, it was slow and the added bits felt disjointed because of a difference in language and characters. The steamy bits were mostly Darcy masturbating or Lydia being wild. Don't waste your money - it's just not worth it. Read Linda Wells if you want a steamy Darcy and Elizabeth story that actually makes sense.

Awful, awful, awful!! 22 Feb 2011
By CWest - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I need to preface this review by saying that I've loved some, liked some, and wished some were better written, but never HATED a Pride and Prejudice knock-off. I HATE this one. I was stupefied as I began reading and said to myself, "This sounds just like Jane Austen!" IT WAS JANE AUSTEN!! Except for some parts, which were badly written nonsense. DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK. I will never buy another book by this author. It must have been an easy way to make money, but even if I'd thought of it, I'd have dismissed it. Michelle, did you need the money so badly?? I wish I could rate the book as a "0" star, or as a minus rating. This is the first review I've ever written, but maybe not the last. Shameful.

I was also disappointed... very disappointed... 6 Jan 2011
By Red Head - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I agree with C. Rich. This is horribly disappointing. I, myself, am not a P&P purist; in fact I love all kinds of P&P AU. But this read almost like somebody simply scribbled some naughty bits between the paragraphs and called it a day. A shame really.

It was a horrible waste of my money and I wouldn't recommend it to anybody.

Could have been so much better 7 Jan 2011
By tabbyannabel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is not a retelling of Pride and Prejudice a la Abigail Reynolds, but the original classic as though Jane Austen had left nothing to the imagination sexually. P&P is my favorite book of all time, but I also love reading steamy historical romances, and this book is a combination of the both. I agree that having the "new" parts of the book typed in bold print was a bit odd, but maybe that was stipulation of using the classic. I don't mind the added wild and wanton parts to the book, but I truly would have wished for more contact thusly between Darcy and Elizabeth. The description of the book on the website makes it sound as though they are together more romantically than is actually added in the book. If you are going to have a steamy book with Darcy and Elizabeth at least let them create the steam. While I'm not necessarily opposed to the book, perhaps it would be best to get a cheap second hand copy. The idea of the book had merit, but it could have been so much better. Sometimes your own imagination is the best.
