Without Reserve: A Pride & Prejudice Variation by Abigail Reynolds
10 of 14 people found the following review helpful
It's difficult to blame Elizabeth to accept the courtship of someone amiable, well linked, respected, kind and generous over Darcy. Didn't we, at some points in our lives, settle for less than pursue our grand passion? And Elizabeth accepted the man's courtship when she was not yet violently in love with Darcy. But Abigail Reynolds' story set up an extremely high tension "what if" situation for Darcy. He had a true rival who though had less fortune than him, was more aimable and civil than him. His pain and anger were so deep. But his stubborn attitude towards the love of his life was commendable. The road to true happiness and love was a difficult and yet exhilarating.

1.0 out of 5 stars Totally boring, 3 Sep 2007
Sorry to say, but I've abandonned the story 1/3 into it. How much can you go on with Darcy and Elizabeth making love as the only plot in a story?

5.0 out of 5 stars I feel for this Darcy, 3 Sep 2007
Abigail Reynolds wrote this book using mainly Elizabeth's point of view, portraying how sad she felt on being "forced" to marry Darcy but I truly felt for Darcy. He thought Elizabeth accepted his proposal because she liked him. He thought their unions were manifestation of their love. But in fact Elizabeth was only tolerating him, because she didn't know about his true character. Fortunately, Darcy rose against all odds and showed her he was in fact the best man in the world. The angst and sadness of the beginning of the story allowed me to appreciate more their journey of discovery, about themselves and their love. An excellent story!
