When he meets Elizabeth, Mr. Darcy is already courting another young lady and now, in addition to his original qualms, he has a real matter of honor to overcome (Goodreads).
I bought this book a while back but never got around to read it. I love Pride and Prejudice, it is my favourite Jane Austen novel. In turn I also like reading sequels to Pride and Prejudice. This book picks up right after Mr. Darcy insults Elizabeth at the assembly. I have to say that I enjoyed this book and made me chuckle couple of times.
Writing was alright, not Jane Austen style of writing but then you can not expect that from this book for one simple reason that this is not written by Jane Austen. Darcy and Elizabeth were cute and good together, but than I am prejudices because I love them as a couple even if they are not Jane Austen type couple. I am sure that if Jane Austen ever read this book she would probably faint or something because of how Darcy and Elizabeth are liberal with their affections toward each other, even though they were just kissing. There is not a lot of historical accuracy in this book, interaction between man and woman, dances and so on were not portrayed correctly. But even though this book lacked historical accuracy I was not bothered by that much, you just have to put that aside and enjoy the book.
I liked the storyline and could not wait to see how Darcy and Elizabeth would manage to be together in the end. I do believe that the obstacle between Elizabeth and Darcy was easy to overcome. I wish that they had harder time getting together; it was just to easy and that made the book bit boring towards the end. Anticlimactic!
Overall this was good read, for entertainment purposes only. If you can get past the historical inaccuracies and none Jane Austen type of writing then you might enjoy the book fine. You just have to take this book for what it is, fluff.
I give this book 3/5 STARS - Happy Reading!!!
