Another fantastic book by Amanda Grange. This book is a series of letters and I didn't know if I would like that but because of the fantastic reviews I decided to go ahead and purchase the book and I am so glad I did. The book makes you laugh out loud when you are reading the letters - especially where Mary Bennett writes to her friend and says that she thinks Mr. Darcy has taken a fancy to her because of his look of astonishment when she was playing the pianoforte at Lucas Lodge!!! Highly, highly recommend this book.

What can I say? This book was brilliant. This was a very interesting take on the classic novel, playing on the idea of Pride and Prejudice being completely written in letters. It is believed that Jane Austen originally wrote Pride and Prejudice in epistolary form and so this is a very original and brilliant concept to develop.

I have to admit that I was dubious about reading an entire novel in letters... I wondered how the story would flow and could be told through letters and letters only. But I had loved Ms. Grange’s Diary series which tells each of Jane Austen’s 6 major novels from the point of view of the hero and so I was definitely going to give this story a try! And I had no need to be worried about the letter format of the story for it was brilliant. It allowed the reader to be shown so many scenes from different perspectives as well the thoughts and feelings of so many different characters that we do not get to know that well in the original.

As I said, I found it really interesting seeing many of the events from the original told from another point of view. A few favourite examples of this for me would be....

Early on at Netherfield when Jane is ill, it was fun to see what the letter Darcy was writing to Georgiana in the drawing room actually said, as I always wondered what he was actually writing to her when Caroline asks him what he is doing so secretly in the corner and begs him to tell Georgiana how she longs to see her – and no, he wasn’t writing quite what Caroline wished him to!

Another example was the Netherfield Ball. I enjoyed all the different letters written after the ball; Elizabeth's view, Kitty's view, Mary's view, Charlotte’s view and Mr Darcy’s.

Amanda Grange manages to entertain by attempting to "fill in the gaps" of the Pride and Prejudice story. To do so she creates new characters who correspond with the main players. The book is enjoyable and funny in places, capturing the tone of Austen. My only slight criticism being some of the story is not accurate to the characters in the original, for example, the invention of a love interest for Mary! Grange has written some excellent Austen books, this is another. Enjoy.

Very good book. Well written as a series of letters to and from the participants in Pride and Prejudice. Follows
the events in Jane Austin's book. Would recommend it to any Jane Austin fan.
