5.0 out of 5 stars So romantic, I almost fainted..., 28 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mr. Darcy and the Secret of Becoming a Gentleman (Kindle Edition)
I absolutely loved this Pride and Prejudice variation and didn't put it down until I had finished the whole book. There was just something so innocent and endearing about it, and the use of original lines from P & P made this feel Austenesque and authentic.

It starts just after Elizabeth's refusal of Darcy's proposal at Hunsford. The story then follows Darcy in his quest, first to make amends with his friend Bingley through Jane, and then to Elizabeth, to show her that he is a better person.

I particularly enjoyed Lady Catherine being put in her place by Darcy, but Lord knows, she has waited two hundred years for it.

There were some beautiful moments, like the one in the library, which I absolutely loved. It was so sweet and kind and loving.

The only other criticism would be the Americanisms (for me these didn't distract from the flow of the story) and they have been covered by other reviews, so I won't sport with your intelligence in that regard. But I do wish that American authors would acknowledge that in England we say Autumn not fall!! Despite this the author has done a fantastic job and I wish she had done a second novel.

Can't recommend this enough for any Jane Austen fan.
