We do not see much of the Bennett family, but as a result we get more Darcy and Elizabeth, yay!! Usually with variations I need for things to turn out as expected regardless of how they get there. Enjoying the angst of will they won't they and misunderstandings galore. This book defies that and is the opposite to what I am accustom too, yet surprisingly I was not upset due to the fact the characters are skillfully built on a different 'what if ' foundation.
What I loved about this book was it's realism, Elizabeth was witty and impertinent, but not overly witty like so many variations which feel that she must say something that will amaze the whole room. The Colonel was a jovial character which was refreshing in comparison to other variations that make him really funny and suprise I actually liked Mr Hurst in this!
I loved the analysis that was done, incorporating the societal morals, values and customs of the era. Various concepts were explored which other P&P variations have not done in such detail, including why the late Mr Darcy seem to favor Wickham and why he was so jealous.
I loved this Darcy, a mans man who commands respect and oozes authority. He is very protective without being over bearing and loves Elizabeth most ardently. I recommend this book and if you like JAFF then enjoy!
If I'm honest, I didn't care much for the sex scenes as I feel they interfere with the integrity of the story and the continuous 'I love you's' can start to feel a little disingenuous after a while. However, having said that I am a grown up and I know where babies come from so it wasn't shocking, just a bit racy. If you're a bit coy in that department this might not be the book for you.
On the plus side it was a nice breath of fresh air to see some of my favourite characters gone bad. It's just like wandering into a parallel universe. Georgiana, who is usually quite irritating with her eternal blushing and fawning has at last turned into a scheming, sulky little minx, and I really liked her for it. But oh dear, Mr Bennet, I almost cried when I realised how mean he was in this variation, but it did make for a more interesting story. I would have liked to see a bit more of him in this version.
I also need to say I was very impressed with the author's knowledge of this time period, it seems she has really put a lot of effort into her research.
All in all, I really enjoyed this and will look forward to reading more from this author.
shows which are meant to make you smile but instead spoil the previous storyline and make you switch off quickly. Other characters such as Jane were also very odd. On the plus side the book was relatively cheap!
I particularly enjoyed the different portrayal of some of the main charcters, and thought it was a great story … give it go you wont regret it.
