UGH I hate Jane Austen especially Pride and Prejudice. I tried, I really tried to read this book with an open mind but there were too many references to the original work for me to get into this romance novel. Not to mention, it reaffirmed that I simply dislike regency or historical romances. This books isn't badly written or even unsexy, but it just wasn't for me.

Mark Twain: "I haven't any right to criticise books, and I don't do it except when I hate them. I often want to criticise Jane Austen, but her books madden me so that I can't conceal my frenzy from the reader; and therefore I have to stop every time I begin. Everytime I read 'Pride and Prejudice' I want to dig her up and beat her over the skull with her own shin-bone." - Letter to Joseph Twichell, 13 September 1898

After sulking around London for several months after his rejection be Elizabeth Bennet, Colonel Fitzwilliam persuades Darcy to try again. So after confessing to Bingley his part in the separation of him and Jane Bennet they go back to Netherfield, with Georgiana Darcy.
Not interesting enough for me, and too much 'mature content' to be bored with. ( )

I debated just putting this book down and not finishing it many times while reading this. Why didn't I? Probably because nothing truly eye rolling popped up to make me say effe it. But it was close. And it all started around page 28 when I encountered this: She fiercely renewed her attention to her needlework, with the unsurprising result that her needle promptly found its way into her finger. With a muffled exclamation of pain and embarrassment, she raised the injured finger to her lips, completely unaware of the effect that this simple gesture would have on Darcy. My eyes roll each time I read this. Anyway, I chose to ignore the idiocy and continue reading though perhaps I should not have because this eventually devolved into a bodice ripper. (Seriously, he rips her dress of at one point. No joke.)

Honestly, I like the idea of the book and the writing style was nice and decently Austen-y. But I would have greatly preferred that this keep with the tone of the original P&P and everything stay G-rated. Not because I am a prude but, in my world, I read Jane Austen when I am in the mood for sweet and innocent love stories. Because not everything needs (lots of) sex to be enjoyable. I have other books when I'm in the mood for that. ( )

I tried about fifty times to get into this book but I couldn't. This one is just not for me ( )

Impulse and Initiative picks up after the disastrous Hunsford proposal and has as its plot-line: what if Darcy set out to actively (instead of accidentally as in the original story) pursue Elizabeth? What if, indeed and why not? The result is a story of the strengths and weaknesses of both Darcy and Elizabeth. One of my favorite lines from this sequel is when Darcy says Elizabeth’s failing is to tell no one of anything of importance. I’ve often thought that when reading the original. We know that she confides in Jane about the proposal, but we also know that she never told Jane of Darcy’s interference with her relationship with Bingley. Because of the silliness and total disregard for reality both of her parents indulged in, I’ve often wondered if she didn’t just internalize her struggles. Austen clearly painted Elizabeth as having a sharp mind and keen wit; it is highly unlikely that Elizabeth didn’t clearly see the conditions of her household and wish for better (not necessarily richer, just making her home life more ideal).

My library put this put in the Young Adult section, and I will be submitting a note with this to the cataloger when I return it; most assuredly it is NOT for young adults. Part of the development of the story is that lust does and can move some relationships along. It’s an interesting position for a Regency piece. They anticipate their wedding vows and have to deal with the ramifications of that. That’s really my only critique of this story: they get away with it all too easily. I would have liked to see some consequences given the time period.

It is a well-written book. No plot lines are introduced and later forgotten only to leave the reader confused and unfulfilled. I don’t give this book the enthusiasm that I have for her others simply because I have a harder time buying into the story line. The anticipation I can actually believe, but without there being more that follows it seems to lose a little purpose. Pride and Prejudice sequel addicts, who are of age, will likely enjoy it. It won’t be their favorite, but they will be able to feel like they were inside Pemberley and sitting with Darcy and Elizabeth a bit.
