5.0 out of 5 stars Gentle and very romantic
A very different path is taken by Elizabeth and Mr Darcy. They meet in completely different circumstances although the background is the same, same characters, same sub plots. An incredibly romantic read, it only took a day or so to finish and I was not disappointed. Elizabeth and Mr Darcy's depth of feeling for each other is evident but without the need for intimate...

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for a light read but language is very American in places
This book wasn't bad; it wasn't great either... but it was a pleasant enough read for a kindle freebie. Entitled "Darcy's Voyage" for the kindle, my biggest criticism is the American writing style and grammar that frequently slips into the speech such as Elizabeth exclaiming "oh my!" and Darcy missing out the word "to" when he decides to "go get" something. For a book...

5.0 out of 5 stars Gentle and very romantic, 9 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pemberley's Promise (Paperback)
A very different path is taken by Elizabeth and Mr Darcy. They meet in completely different circumstances although the background is the same, same characters, same sub plots. An incredibly romantic read, it only took a day or so to finish and I was not disappointed. Elizabeth and Mr Darcy's depth of feeling for each other is evident but without the need for intimate details. This is not just a great read for Jane Austen fans!

3.0 out of 5 stars OK for a light read but language is very American in places, 10 April 2011
This review is from: Pemberley's Promise (Paperback)
This book wasn't bad; it wasn't great either... but it was a pleasant enough read for a kindle freebie. Entitled "Darcy's Voyage" for the kindle, my biggest criticism is the American writing style and grammar that frequently slips into the speech such as Elizabeth exclaiming "oh my!" and Darcy missing out the word "to" when he decides to "go get" something. For a book supposedly written in the style of Jane Austen, these were glaring errors, and it was obvious that the author was American.
I have started many books in the past that attempt to continue the lives of the characters from P&P after the end of the book (something many fans crave), and most I have aborted after a chapter or two out of sheer horror; this book was different in that it is the original storyline that it deals with; it rearranges the events in many places but still attempts to include many of the original speeches and happenings from the original book. What kept me reading it was the author's ability to humanise Darcy a little more in quite a believable way for much of the book, such that I felt I was getting a little more insight to his character.
All in all, I would say that it is good as a light read for a P&P fan, as long as it isn't taken too seriously.
