Best Jane Austen sequel,
This review is from: Mr. Darcy Presents His Bride: A Sequel to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice (Paperback)
I enjoyed this sequel because it clearly showed that the author had actually read the book (which is questionable sometimes!!!). The Darcy's marriage is not as soppy as it is in other sequels which means the charaters retain their attributes. Elizabeth's success and admiration in London society means the reader can still enjoy some of Darcy's brooding and jealous moods which we have all fallen in love with.
This book follows the Austen Canon of things getting worse before they get better and this means that the book has an engaging plot rather than just pages and pages of how in love Darcy and Elzabeth are (like other sequels). This book is actually a real success and the author does (like Austen) manage some laugh out loud moments as well as some tragic ones.
I would say this is a very good read i have only given it four stars because let's face it still isn't Austen!!!
