Book 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.
