A refreshing variation,
This review is from: Mr. Darcy's Noble Connections: A Pride & Prejudice Variation (Paperback)
I confess my expectations were not very high for this book. I've read dozen of P&P variations, and the last ones were always a disappointment.
When I started reading Mr. Darcy's Noble connections I could not believe it! I was finally reading something that was good!
I was afraid the story would disappoint me as I continue reading, but it never did! In fact, everything about the book was great!
This variation takes us to a completely different scenario from P&P. Darcy and Elizabeth get reunited after the Hunsford proposal at Bentham Park, a house belonging to a mutual acquaintance.
The scenario and the characters are all very different from the ones in P&P, and I need to say this was quite refreshing. I enjoyed the new characters, and loved the interactions Abigail Reynolds created. Darcy and Elizabeth remain faithful to their own personalities, and the interactions between them are absolutely wonderful. The love story in this book is amazing, it shows a connection and understanding between them that is very touching and romantic. Above everything the love story is touching and interesting without ever loosing propriety.
There is one other love story in the book that keeps us interested in it, and that was also another positive point in the book.
I totally recommend this to any P&P fan.

"A refreshing variation" but surely not necessary? I feel I've been living on a desert island, being totally unaware until now of so many Pride and Prejudice spin-offs, and wonder what will happen on the second anniversary of Austen's death in 2017 - with all those authors out there probably already busy polishing up their derivative pens instead of trying to produce something of their own.
