My rating: 5 of 5 stars
As a huge fan of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice I could not pass up on the opportunity to read the classic from Mr. Darcy's POV.
This a raised after reading P&P, (my best friend all but threw it at me). After telling her how much I loved the book she handed me this book saying that I had to read it. I was ecstatic, because, well come on, we all want to know what that man was thinking when he wasn't (and was) around Miss Elisabeth Bennet.
I was quit happy with this read, though there are some discrepancies, I couldn't put it down. There's just something so captivating about seeing the classic from his eyes.
Though this isn't the works of Jane Austen, and in truth, no matter how you put it, this book is fan-fiction, Janet Aylmer, in my opinion did a great job.
In Pride and Prejudice, there isn't much on Mr Darcy other then his interaction with Elisabeth. This makes for a whole other world that can be explored and payed with. If you want to nit pick, then sure, you're going to see the difference is writing, because the author of this particular novel, didn't live in the 19th century.
I have read other taking on this Mr. Darcy's side of things, but of out all of then, this book is my favourite.
If you love Pride and Prejudice, please give this book a chance, go into with a open mind and just enjoy this wonderful work of fiction.
