I got Volume 2 as a present, and what a fantastic present it was! I couldn't put it down! I didn't think it would be possible for it to be even better than Volume 1, but it really is! A lot of things are happening and are happening faster, the pace of this volume is a couple of notches up compared to the first and by the end - what a roller-coaster ride! Colonel Fitzwilliam is as adorable as ever (in critical places even more so), Jane and Georgiana's attempts to help are very sweet and the journey of self-discovery that both Elizabeth and Darcy find themselves going through is beautifully portrayed. Now I'm in a bit of a quandary, because there are several things I absolutely adored, both in terms of plot and of style, but I think a lot of the enjoyment hinges on the element of surprise and I don't know what I can safely say without spoiling it for the next reader! I will say this, though: you're in for a treat!

Having read a few "sequels" or 're-imaginings' of P&P, I have to say that this was better than most! The plot flowed well and the language was for the most part correct for the time, with only a few instances where the characters' actions were not quite in line with what would have been acceptable in

When I read volume I of A Fair Prospect, I could not believe I would have to wait a couple of months to read Volume II.
I was eager for its release, and when I bought and read it, i was not disappointed. It is not so good as the first and third volumes, but it is defiantly amazing! The trilogy is one of the best I've ever read! I could re-read all 3 volumes in a weekend.
A Fair Prospect trilogy is a must read book! It's almost as good as Austen's Pride and Prejudice.
