This review is from: Only Mr. Darcy Will Do (Kindle Edition)
This P&P variation grips you from the beginning. I like that both Darcy and Elizabeth are humbled, and the story drags you in to try and work out how they will eventually come together.
I particularly like the account of Pemberley. Having read the original more times than I care to remember, as well as a lot of sequels and variations, in addition to seeing all film and tv adaptations available, I thought my imagined view of it to be quite fixed. Instead I find here that Pemberley is described in such a beautiful and tangible way that it comes to life and feels as though you're actually there.
I was also impressed by the author's choice of using her own words in certain situations where others would just have slotted in the original text. This again added to the freshness, as while the scenario might have been familiar, there was a new edge to it, which merged nicely with the overall writing style.
A very enjoyable read.
