The Bar Sin Sister, 29 Sept. 2003
A rollicking Regency bonk buster which must send some Austen fans into a spin.From first to last this is a story informed more by sexual fantasy than by any concern for consistency of style or characterisation. But don't knock it. Some of the incidents, a lot of the dialogue and all of the sentence construction will have you laughing out loud.While Darcy's main attraction in the original lies in his inscrutable demeanor here it lies in his well trained bedside, on top of mahogany table, underneath furniture ...you name it, manner. Elizabeth is a happy partner to all of this. Some depth of character is gained through personal tragedies, illicit goings on and all. However, Jane Austen it is not.
