Poor Mr. Darcy: A Pride & Prejudice Novella
Poor Mr. Darcy: A Pride & Prejudice Novella
Price: £1.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Playing hide and no seek., 26 Aug. 2015
I didn't want to read this at first. I didn't want to read a book about Mr. Darcy being poor, and coming to Hertfordshire penniless.

Thankfully, this isn't the story. Darcy and Mrs Wickham are in hiding at Netherfield. This story is all about them pretending to not have money. Do they actually have money? You'll have to read the story to find out.

What about the plot? Well, the standard Darcy and Miss Bennet falling in love is still there, but the other story - there's a few unexpected twists out there. Worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars A story not about the couple falling in love. Good., 26 Aug. 2015
Yet another "Darcy and Miss Bennet have to marry early book". However, instead of the usual "let's see how they fall in love, with lots of misunderstandings", we have an original viewpoint. This story is all about the obstacles that the couple have to overcome.

I could argue about two of the characters. In my reading, Wickham would not do something again his own self-interest, so there was no point in thinking about acting against Miss Bennet at first. Secondly, Miss Bingley wants Mr. Darcy, but in the original she uses her own charms to try to get him. In this version... well, you have to read it for yourself.

Recommend if you want a different type of story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bargain!, 26 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A collection of three books, each of which is well worth a read, but here together for a bargain price. I don't think there is a weak story among the three - a recommended purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quite a different type of book. Miss Elizabeth Bennet ..., 26 Aug. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite a different type of book. Miss Elizabeth Bennet is now an world-wise woman, and someone of immediate interest to Mr. Darcy. An engrossing read, with different reactions to various situations, and with a few ghosts to lay to rest. Well worth a read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Far too short, 21 Aug. 2015
The ideas that this author shows in this book are quite interesting, and if developed into a properly length story could be quite nice. However, all it is so far is an outline of one chapter. Worth reading if you can get it on Kindle Unlimited, but not worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended., 21 Aug. 2015
Rumours start to circulate in town about Mr Darcy and Miss Elizabeth Bennet. You can read why in the preview - all because of Miss Bennet's dog. This story concentrates on their relationship in the first month after they start to become closer. I won't reveal too much - the story goes in ways I was not expecting, and don't want to ruin it for you. However, I will say that this story is in depth, there is a bit of bedroom behaviour described (in depth), and it is well worth reading. Recommended.

Power Spanish Conversation Intensive: 4 Hours of Accelerated Spanish Conversation Training (English and Spanish Edition)
Offered by Audible Ltd

1.0 out of 5 stars Avoid. Seriously., 28 July 2015
I liked the idea for this course. 4 hours of conversation, building on what you already know.

Now for the reality. The first conversation has about 7-9 sentences in it. You are introduced to them, in English and Spanish. And then again, so you can repeat them. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again. And again.

There are mild variants of the narration - for instance, one sentence may be skipped. But that's it. And all of that takes 15 minutes.

Great - onto the next conversation. But what happens next? "Let's practice this all again." It's as if you don't have a rewind button on your CD player - it starts from the beginning and does it all again.

And then a third time.

And then a fourth time. Phrases such as "Don't be disappointed if you don't get it right the first time" are irritating the fourth time you hear it, especially given we have done this boring repetition in its complete form now for around 24 times.

After an hour, there is then a second conversation. And exactly the same thing happens.

The third conversation is a bit longer a least.

Then, for the final hour: "Let's revisit these conversations".

Please! All of this could have been put onto 1 CD. Very disappointed. Avoid.

As a Basic programmer, this has helped me learn the different syntax of C#. A great primer at a great price.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very derivative, 10 Jun. 2015
A good concept, but a bit long in places, and ruined by constant references to Persuasion. To have Captain Wentworth's words in Darcy's mouth is not good. They are completely different characters - don't amalgamate them. There were other similarities - the rain outside of a shop leading someone to get a carriage for Elizabeth is taken out of Persuasion, as are other things. The original writing was good, but overshadowed, sadly.

3.0 out of 5 stars A slight story, 10 Jun. 2015
Elizabeth and Darcy need a push to fall in love with each other. This story has nothing complicated, but is nice and light.
