James or austen?,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Death Comes to Pemberley (Hardcover)
Well I rejoyced when I heard about this book. Two of my favourite authors together through the centuries? I know Dame Phyllis' skills, I have always loved Jane....it sounded like Jane, actually, it shows great love and respect for her by James, but...it is somewhat non completely convincing.The story is weak, Darcy has come back to his previous self: stiff and traditional (Colin Firth's image comes in mind immediately, alas,and it will, forever!), Lizzy is non existing...it was boring! The last pages are brilliant: most Austenian characters are there: non only from Pride & Prejudice but also from Persuasion and Emma. A tribute to Austen, but not the usual, enjoyable James's thrillers. Read it but don't expect neither jane Austen nor P.D.James.
