Emily is an American who's had enough of modern day men, instead she loves to settle down with her copy of Pride and Prejudice and step into the past when men were real men. Horrified at the thought of going to Mexico for a week of partying with her best friend she manages to grab the last place on a Jane Austen tour in the UK, in freezing December. She starts to regret her rash decision when she realises the trip is full of pensioners and one rude journalist, but then when she meets Mr Darcy her week starts to look up....

What a fab idea for a book. Potter has created some great characters - I loved all the 'oldies' on the tour, and I also really enjoyed the spookiness of the mysterious Mr Darcy appearing from nowhere. This was a really easy to read book - one of those ones which you start and before you know it you've read about 100 pages without even realising. Lovely cosy descriptions of winter in the UK, lots of likable and endearing characters, tons of references to Jane Austen and an entertaining and enjoyable plot make this book a really great one.

If you're in the mood for a fun, light hearted read then I highly recommend this book. However if you're an obsessive Jane Austen fan who can't bear to see any of her characters in the 21st Century then you're probably better off avoiding this one!

So. So. SO... I wish I could give this book more stars because the author was clearly full of good intentions and I hate being a bitch to nice people with good intentions, you know? But this book, despite being a nice, enjoyable summer read, has too many things which are wrong wrong wrong. I don't even know where to start.

I've never been into chick lit. I mean, I do love `Bridget Jones' but that's as far as it goes really. Unless you count classics like "Pride & Prejudice" as chick lit, then fair enough. Anyway, I got "Me & Mr Darcy" as a birthday present after adding it to my Amazon list. "Pride & Prejudice" is one of my favourite classics, and I was looking for some more Mr Darcy to keep the fantasy going. The summary for this book seemed nice enough, and I was secretly jealous of the very pretty girl on the cover, so I went for this one.

At first I really enjoyed it. It was an easy read - something I'm not really used to - and interesting enough. But then she started quoting excerpts of "Pride and Prejudice" and it annoyed me a little. Especially since it was followed right after by a completely similar experience for Emily, the main character, I had a feeling that the author expected me to be stupid and not understand the parallel by myself.

Emily. She works at a book shop and claims to be a bookworm. Mmm... Thing is, throughout the whole book she sounds like a total idiot. She gets annoyed whenever someone assumes she is stupid because she is American, but to be honest it is not far from the truth at all is it? I don't think there's any depth to her character. She really seemed empty and superficial to me. Perhaps it's a cliché, but I would expect someone who says they read a lot to be slightly more intelligent.

Then you've got Spike.

I had walked past this book in the bookshop a few times and been attracted to the title. Everyone loves Mr Darcy, so whilst I thought it would inevitably be very silly eventually I picked it up to buy it.

The book starts off well with a likeable and funny main character. I liked the idea of her going on a Jane Austen book tour in England, as well as her 'fish out of water' scenarios.

Unfortunately the worst bits in this book are the bits that I most looked forward to: when the heroine meets 'Mr Darcy'. Except don't expect anything like Jane Austen's celebrated character to appear, as the Mr Darcy is bland, dull and not half so attractive as Jane Austen's creation. Whilst this is Potter's point- that reality is better than fiction, all is not what it seems, blah blah blah- it does leave you feeling disappointed. Instead Potter recreates Mr Darcy's character through Spike, a cynical journalist. Which is all very well, but why she had to turn Mr Darcy into a boring dud is beyond me. Since when, for example, did Mr Darcy ponce around reciting poetry aloud to women?! Anyone who is a fan of Pride and Prejudice will know that this is NOT something Mr Darcy would ever do!

But then the whole thing is far-fetched, and so cringingly predictable. For someone who is supposed to be obsessed with Pride and Prejudice, the heroine is incredibly stupid not to realise that all of the action mirrors the events of the novel. As well as using whole extracts from P&P, Potter has her characters paraphrasing throughout the novel. This makes is painfully obvious to readers exactly what is going to happen, yet our heroine doesn't notice.

And (don't read the next two paragraphs if you're going to buy the book) the ending is ludicrious, beyond farce.

Mr Darcy may be every woman's fantasy but meeting this gorgeous specimen of a man reveals more to Emily Albright than she'd bargained for. This book is witty, enjoyable and engaging. Working in a job she loves (a book shop); she spends more time with her head buried between the covers of classics than embracing modern life. With a string of disastrous dates behind and an unwillingness to embark on the latest fashion item she is an unlikely heroine.

Invited to attend Mexico with her outrageous friend, she opts for a tour of England, in particular Jane Austen country. The trip leads to misery, heart break and a soul searching experience bound up with fabulous romance and fiction. I loved this book and knowledge of `Pride and Prejudice' is not necessary as extracts are used throughout the book.

I'm so pleased I read this and in places it reminded me of `The History of Lucy's Love Life in 10.5 Chapters'. A good plot, believable characters, excellent narrative - what more could you want from a few hours curled up on the sofa?
