Mr Darcy Goes Overboard - brilliant fun
on 3 January 2013
If you are looking for something light and fun to read on holiday (or even wishing you were on holiday!) this seaside based version of Pride and Prejudice is perfect - I laughed all the way through!
The Pride and Prejudice story takes place today in a summer week in a small English seaside town, Salcombe - a real place apparently - full of yachts and smart restaurants where the wealthy Brits take their family holidays - just as in Jane Austen's time they holidayed in Bath. And just like Jane Austen it is full of witty irony.
Those who see Jane Austen (and themselves) as "serious" will probably hate it, and you may not get all the English references (unless you are English of course) - but if you have a sense of humor and you appreciate an eccentric English tale do read it!
