Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Romantic but repetitive I liked this book, however, it was a bit repeptive at times. The whole book was about their "honeymoon" and the love they have for eachother. It opens your eyes into a completely intimate view of the Darcy's. I felt that it was a little too one track. I would have liked to have seen more plot like the chapter with the dual, or Lizzy's injury. I only want to read the next one to hear about any possible children. If it's more of the same, I won't be reading anymore.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Sharon Lathan's Darcy Saga: Book 1 I hold the Pamela Aidan Fitzwilliam Darcy - Gentleman series as the pinnacle of Austen fan fiction, which followed the same storyline as the original Pride & Prejudice, but from Darcy's point of view. I was expecting a lot from the Sharon Lathan series, my first foray in Austen fan fiction after a long drought) but after reading the first novel I admit I am bit gobsmacked. Usually I do some research on ratings and recommendations before I purchase books but I have to admit I didn't do so for this series and I wish I had. I'm not really sure how to proceed with reviewing the novel, in order to be fair and not give away any spoilers. For further reviews I suggest visiting LibraryThing. Here are a few observations that may be helpful in deciding whether you would want to read the series: * The novels follow the Darcy's directly after their wedding. * There is a lot of description about the Pemberley estate, manor and history of Darcy's family. * New characters are brought into the story. * Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy contains a lot of romantic language and scenes of intimacy. (I am not a overtly romantic person but I do think I have sensitivity and the quantity of these moments and the verbosity of the characters frankly made me uncomfortable, something that takes quite a lot to do!) * The peak of the story, all the action, comes in the last chapters of the book. * The novel is romance not literature. * Indirectly offers lessons in romance: when, where, why, and how often to say "I love you". * The book covers are certainly pretty. Well, I purchased the series all at once with a Christmas gift card, so they are there sitting on the shelf, so I suppose they will all get read one day (maybe). I think for me that's it for now with Austen fan fiction...but for those who can't get enough please look to the Pamela Aidan series and Syrie James' The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen. My Rating: 2.5

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great book! I've read many Austen sequels but this by far is the best! I actually skimmed through it in one sitting. Great read!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Austen Sequel I love Jane Austen sequels. I live for them. I devour sequel after sequel. It is a small wonder I do not get confused. I had read about this sequel while perusing Amazon on a Jane Austen sequel buying spree. I initially passed it over because it was based on the 2005 movie not the 1995 series. I couldn’t seem to get away from that. The 2005 movie almost seemed to be a more dramatized, high school version of Pride and Prejudice. This was definitely something I had to force myself to look beyond while reading Lathan’s book. I also had to essentially forget everything that happened in the 1995 series and force myself to sit and watch the 2005 version again to refresh my memory. I found that I felt better about the book if I imagined Jennifer Ehle and Colin Firth instead of Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen. Once I began reading, I was pleasantly surprised. I really liked this book. I love how Lathan injects drama into the continuing story of Darcy and Elizabeth. Their life is not quiet in Lathan’s world as you would assume it to be in Austen’s world. I loved that she injected the bad influence of a town scoundrel into the novel. I also love that it resulted in a duel which is something I always wanted to see in a Austen sequel. It gives Darcy a bit of an edge. The relationship between Elizabeth and Darcy is portrayed excellently. Their relationship is clearly passionate in the early days of their marriage. The love between them is tangible and Lathan portrays it well. I also love how Elizabeth calls Darcy “William”. I found that so sweet. There were, however, some aspects of Lathan’s novel that didn’t quite work for me. The language was simply too flowery especially in the love scenes. They are constantly jabbering on about how wonderful the other is. That is great the first few times but if it is repeated a million times, it gets annoying. I did find that the prose was wonderful outside of love scenes. Also there is no remnant of Jane Austen to be found in this novel. Her language, her voice is absent. This could be a creative choice of the author but I found that I missed the essence of Austen that I can usually find in Austen sequels. The flaws in Lathan’s sequel did not detract from my enjoyment of the novel. I really liked it. I even bought the two sequels which I am going to read when I am through with the mountain of reading I still have to do. If you love Jane Austen sequels, please pick this one up. It is quite the wonderful read.

Read from the Book

Chapter One Mr. and Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy Thank goodness it is finally over, Fitzwilliam Darcy thought with a heavy sigh. He realized that he probably should not entertain such a thought, but it could not be helped. The past eight weeks of his engagement had held many wonderful moments and all in all had been delightful, but also exceedingly trying. Daily he wanted nothing more than to spend time with his beloved Elizabeth. However, the constant pressures of wedding plans, visits from a seemingly inexhaustible quantity of friends and family, constraints of propriety, and business interests that had taken him from Hertfordshire on several occasions all had conspired to separate him from her far too often. Add to that his own uneasiness with all the social engagements, not to mention his continued distaste for Mrs. Bennet, and the weeks had seemed interminable. Nonetheless, he thought while gazing lovingly upon his sleeping wife? my wife!? There certainly were some marvelous times to be remembered. In truth, he and Elizabeth had managed to pass numerous satisfying hours together alone, or at least almost alone, yet it never was sufficient as far as Darcy was concerned. She had teased him on occasion for acting like a petulant child whose favorite toy had been taken away. Initially, he had been a bit offended, but then he realized she was correct and had to laugh at himself. Yet he could not deny how bereft he felt without her by his side and how he had treasured every moment t
