I'm not a great Austen fan and have seen more of the films than read the books, but this was free so thought I' d try it. And it's really good. The easier style takes the story forward, the plot progresses very believably and Austen's characters work well in their continued setting.
Georgiana is grown into a likeable and strongwilled heroine, not unlike Elizabeth in the original (who also gets sympathetic treatment here) and other characters get enhanced characterisation.
I'll be reading the next volume for sure.

Unlike a previous reviewer, Death at Pemberley left me cold, and I rarely come across an Austen-a-like which does any kind of justice to the originals. However, Anna Elliott has achieved that lofty goal.

I suppose I should start with my (very few) caveats before I gush about how much I loved this!

So: There are a few slips into American spellings/phraseology - nothing painfully bad, but a few spots where the author would have benefited from a British proofreader to weed out the odd sentence which doesn't fit. Overall though, despite Anna Elliott's disclaimer that she does not consider herself able to match Austen, she does a very creditable job of writing in a way that feels (to this Austen aficionado at least) like it could almost have flowed from Austen herself.

The ending is predictable - which in and of itself is not a bad thing, but on just one or two occasions I did want to bash certain characters' heads together! There is a fine line between dramatic and romantic tension, and characters being idiots, and a couple of times Elliott _almost_ topples over it. One never doubts that the endgame will play out as one wishes, and that can be a little too sweet at times for some people.

However, the good stuff far outweighs the minor niggles:

There is such a lot to enjoy here. The pairing up of characters is great, with a few unexpected twists and turns. Not only does the author portray characters we know well in a way that is absolutely recognisable (for instance, when writing Darcy and Lizzy), but she also breathes new life into characters who don't play a huge role in the original.

There is nothing wrong with this book but it is rather dull, Georgiana is shy, timid and non-assertive, and Anne de Bourgh is even worse:- dull, insipid and completely put upon by her mother-so it is not surprising that the book is not very exciting. The ending fizzles out too, presumably so the author could write a sequel to it.

Even though I know nothing will match Jane Austen's writing I am always irresistibly drawn to spin offs and continuations of the Pride and Prejudice story and then prepare myself to be horrified. I downloaded this because it was free, but I was not horrified at all - in fact I really enjoyed this book. It wasn't of Austen's calibre, and the author does not attempt to imitate Austen's style, but it was easy and pleasant reading. I thought the storyline was good, it kept me turning the pages, and it was obviously written with care. On the whole I thought it was well edited too which I appreciated very much. One doesn't always agree with the way the characters are developed, however this does not make it a bad book. I would not have minded paying for this book, and will download the sequel.

Fascinating classic novel spin off of 'Pride and Prejudice. The Austen tale is continued by Anna Elliot. This novel centres on the sweet but intriguing character of Georgiana Darcy. Famous of course for being the sister of romantic male favorite - Mr Darcy and of course for having a former liaison with Mr Wickham and him famously using her as a pawn in his game of revenge towards his former friend Mr Darcy. The style of writing is elegant, lovely and pays close attention to the original text. It is a strong sequel and a good read. A must for Austin fans.

This was a nice enough read. Anna Elliott is no Jane Austen, but I don't think that she claims be. The story is a view of what a Pride and Predjudice sequel might have been like and, with that in mind, it was perfectly readable. The language was quite modern and the plot was too awkward for it to be believable.

I love anything ' pride and prejudice' and although this is a bit of a different take on the original story I still found it enjoyable.

Does not capture the spirit, tone or essence of the original and I think inappropriate to rip off a great author's characters and setting for such a very different level of writing and plot. Boring and simplistic, not for me.
