This sexy, epic, hilarious, poignant and romantic sequel to Pride and Prejudice goes far beyond being a Jane Austen sequel. Every woman wants to be Elizabeth Bennet Darcy-beautiful, gracious, universally admired, strong, daring and outspoken-a thoroughly modern woman in crinolines. And every woman will fall madly in love with Mr. Darcy-tall, dark and handsome, a nobleman and a heart-throb whose virility is matched only by his utter devotion to his wife. Their passion is consuming and idyllic through a sweeping tale of adventure and misadventure, human folly and numerous mysteries of parentage.… (mer)

Hahaha, this is terrible! I picked this up after reading some of Jane Aiken's reasonably good spin-offs and was pretty much horrified. ( )

It is a truth universally acknowledged that any Pride and Prejudice sequel will be a complete disaster. But like every other former English major, I’m so fascinated by Mr. Darcy that I can’t stop reading the knockoffs.

Full review contains some spoilers. ( )

I'm honestly ashamed that I skimmed the rest of the book after the first awful chapters. The writing is bad, first of all, as though the author did not even attempt to understand Jane Austen's time, characters, or writing style. In addition, the degradation of the characters of Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy is repugnant. Of course, it's a work of fanfiction, but it does not do justice to Miss Austen's beloved works, as some do, and, in my opinion, violates them completely. ( )

I first read this book years ago because I always wanted to read about what happened with Darcy & Elizabeth after they were married. I've since become a huge fan of continuations and re-tellings of all Austen's works. I really enjoyed reading this one. Some of the actions seemed a little out of character when thinking back on the original story but it was still good. ( )

Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife- Linda Berdoll
audio version performed by Rosalyn Landor
3 stars

I’m so embarrassed that I read this Pride and Prejudice spin-off. I feel that I have to explain myself. I’d recently finished Jo Baker’s Longbourne, and I’d enjoyed its well- researched historical fiction. I thought it would be fun to try something less serious to alleviate the pain off several days of freeway driving. I was looking for one of the zombie books, but this one was available. So that’s my excuse.

The story begins with the newly wed Elizabeth enduring the “unrelenting jiggle” of a carriage ride on the morning after her wedding. Darcy offered her a pillow but “her much abused dignity forbade her to accept such a blatant admission of conjugal congress”. Yes, Darcy and Elizabeth did IT. And they continue to do it; in the coach and in the bath, in each and every bedroom and in the Pemberley parklands. And this was very funny. They had me laughing again and again, removing every bit of my incipient road rage. But enough is enough, the Darcys’ sex life becomes a bit boring after a while. (Especially when they each expressed a disinclination to wash the scent of the beloved from their respective bodies.) I was perfectly willing to let Elizabeth and Darcy ride off to enjoy themselves in the shrubbery while enjoying the slapstick comedy of Mr. Collins on horseback.

As comedy, this book was a lot of fun, at least at the beginning. As the story became more serious, it was repetitious in another way. Catastrophes and the threats of scandal come not in threes, but endlessly. There were some strong plot lines that I think I could have enjoyed more in a work of historical fiction that was not encumbered with characters from classic literature. Georgiana in the role of battlefield nurse just didn't work for me. I also found the number of previously unknown bastard byblows and tales of ancestral infidelity overdone.

So, it’s hard to rate this one. Rosalyn Landor gets 5 stars for a stellar performance. I don’t know how anyone could read some of the lines in this book without dissolving in giggles. As a sequel to a great work of literature….. it’s hard to repress a shudder.

As plush a coach as it was, recent rains tried even its heavy srings. Hence the road to Derbyshire was betimes a bit jarring. Mr. Darcy, with all gentlemanly solicitousness, offered the new Mrs. Darcy a pillow upon which to sit to cushion the ride.
