Product Description

Product Description

The popularity of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice has ensured constant readership and various film and television adaptations. Madeline James addresses many of the inexplicable absences of the hero, Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy, from the pages of the novel. The Lost Diary presents Mr Darcy's view of Jane Austen's narrative. The picture is filled, the memorable scenes take on another dimension and the story unfolds beyond the confines of the original. The Diary starts, in line with Austen's first attempt, in 1796 and continues into another romantic climax.

5.0 out of 5 stars the diary of Darcy 13 Nov 2013
By katymay
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I gave this five stars as it was really a remarkable tale told with conviction and style. The author has introduced new characters which do, I must admit make the reader think more about the tale. Brilliantly written but too abruptly I wanted more. A diary to be reconmended.

5.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable read for Austen fans 26 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
There are many books inspired by Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, but one of the strengths of this one is its insight into Fitzwilliam Darcy's thoughts and detailed ideas through his diary, which chronicles the time covered in Pride and Prejudice and beyond. Madeleine James cleverly develops the minor characters, for example those of Mary and Georgiana; adds some new and interesting characters; and brings about a satisfying conclusion. Although no one can quite measure up to Jane Austen, the style of this book closely imitates her own. For fans of the genre this is a 'must have'.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 10 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Not very good for a Regency romance. I did enjoy Jane Austen's characters, but that may be all. I started the book, so I had to reach the end, but it was a chore. There are far better sequels out there to read, I'm currently reading M.C Beaton's books, which I can highly recommend, they are well written by someone who clearly has a lot of knowledge on the time period & they are light & amusing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lacks Substance 30 Dec 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This version of the story supposedly from Darcy's point of view leaves out anything of substance and replaces it with a plethora of invented friends, relatives and neighbours that had precious little relevance to the core of the matter. Where was Darcy's monumental emotional struggle post Hunsford? It got scarcely a mention. As did Elizabeth herself, who seems to be a minor character in this book!! Not sure if this author is American, but some of her invented characters had the oddest names and titles. Not quite a total waste of money, but it came close. For a better version of Darcy's story try Amanda Grange or Mary Street.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK 19 Oct 2013
By Jan Payton - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was not a page turner. It was another example of an abbreviated story. Yes, it was a diary.
It was slow the entire book. It is not going to be a second read.
Well, I did give it a second read. It still isn't a page turner, but I think I appreciated it more the second time.
It's not a bad book, just not the the Lizzy, Darcy turmoil we live for. LOL

4.0 out of 5 stars The story comes in journal form, but it works 9 Oct 2013
By carol p - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Each of the characters in this story stays in character and their voices are what you expect and want. It does end all of a sudden, but other wise was an enjoyable read. Jane is a little weak and so is Charles, but they are not really important to this story. Mary comes off well and there are many new people in the Darcy's world to get to know. But you will like them and they add up to a good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Is What It Is 8 Jan 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Exactly what I expected. Diary written by Fitzwilliam Darcy. His entries are about he and Elizabeth Bennet with no fluff. My only regret it ended abruptly.

1.0 out of 5 stars This was not published by the US Publisher Meryton Press 11 Oct 2013
By Meryton Press - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Just to alleviate any confusion. This book was NOT published by the US Publisher, Meryton Press. Meryton Press is a small independent publishing company that has been in existence since 2009 and is incorporated in Washington State.

I'm not sure why Ms. James would list us as the publisher of her work but I'm sure that it must have been in error!
3.0 out of 5 stars long and a hard read 1 Jun 2014
By Melody Meyer - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love love love Pride and Prejudice books, almost all I read lately. I found this one very hard to get into and it really took me for ever to finish it. It really is as it's stated the diary of Mr. Darcy, I didn't find the day to day enteries interesting at all.
