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.

Ok, as an avid Jane Austen fan I thought i'd give it a go out of curiosity. It was free and surprisingly good.
Obviously not as good as the original - follow ups never are, but it was a nice story about more minor characters and it allowed you to continue your thoughts on Lizzy and Darcy as well as looking at other characters in a more central way. Nothing beats the original but a nice tie in.

Its not Austen but a Thoroughly enjoyable story. Georgiana's character grew and became endearing and believable. I felt some of the language was not of the period and I didn't think there was much need for a potted history of P&P in the early part of the book - why would you be reading a spin-off if you hadn't read the original? But none of these tiny gripes mattered - I was hooked and will buy further books.

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.

I am a huge Jane Austen fan. I read P&P every year and always find something new in it. I have read a couple of sequals to P&P. Some have left me quite cold. No one can do justice to Elizabeth and Darcy like Austen. Or so I thought.

As this was free I thought I'd give it a go, and I wasn't disappointed. Anna Elliott is obviously a fan of Austen. She treats all the characters with respect. I always like the character of Georgiana, but we didn't get to know her very well in P&P. In this book you can fall in love with her.

You believe the diary has been written by an 18 year old girl who has scared of the world and doesn't quite know her place in it. Throughout the book Georgiana grows into a more self confident young woman, and you want her to achieve her dreams.

Elizabeth is my favourite character in English literature, I always wanted to know what happened after P&P finished. She meant so much to me, as did Darcy. I think most women are in love with Darcy. In this book we get to learn more about Elizabeth and Darcy's life together but it is Georgiana's story.

Elliott also explores some of the other characters including Lady Catherine and Anne DeBurgh. Some opinions of the characters may be altered after reading this book. Other characters you loathe just as much. I am looking forward to the next installment and I am thinking about downloading Kitty's diary too.

I am a huge fan of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and have always wondered what became of the likes of Georgiana and other 'lesser' (forgive me) characters. Still it was with some trepidation that I finally gave in to curiosity and purchased Georgiana Darcy's Diary. I have to say, I absolutely loved it. Yes, there are language inconsistencies, words that I'm sure wouldn't have been commonplace in Ms Austen's time and yes, there are some question marks over the 'forward' behavior of the characters in certain situations but, if you are able to put those to one side and read this with an open mind then I think you may be pleasantly surprised. I know I was.
However, that being said, I wouldn't recommend it for the pureist!
