This review is from: Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife: Pride and Prejudice Continues (Kindle Edition)
This book purports to pick up with Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth after their marriage and continue with them years into their lives together, through their intimate bedroom lives, their ups and downs, on into Waterloo and the birth of their first child. But what it is is a modern, poorly written historical romance in which there are two characters who happen to be called Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Darcy, nee Bennett, because this is as much relationship as it bears to the witty, decorous story told by Austen. It is ponderous and inaccurate, and the liberal use of howbeit, forthwith and albeit does not make it sound like Austen at all. And the Americanisms such as using 'bangs' for 'fringe' grate. The geography is vastly inaccurate and the characters are capable of travelling a 100 miles in a carriage in a couple of hours. Surely the author could have looked this up in an atlas! This will not be a satisfying sequel for anyone who delights in Pride and Prejudice.
