    Those Darcys

    Just when I thought the last book about the Darcy family was good, this one gives so much more to the reader's imagination. Thank you Elizabeth Aston.

    Jolly good fun!

    This book is quite delightful! It is aptly named-- the entire story is quite the adventure, both across Europe and among the colorful characters. While it is true that Mr. and Mrs. Darcy continue to play less than an active role, the story itself lacks very little if viewed solely as another historical fiction as opposed to a Pride and Prejudice continuation. Indeed, Ms. Aston's writing style differs from Ms. Austen's, but instead of taking away from the reading experience, it adds a fresh perspective. It is one of my favorites in the series, and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the Regency period.

    A Great Start for a Series of Sequels

    This first book introduces you to our favorite couple's five daughters during their first season in London. I have read all of the books in this series so far and I have yet to be disappointed, the themes and plot twists echo Jane Austen's own writing style. While the author avoids writing Elizabeth and Darcy into her novels, her characters rival those of Austen. If you like these books I also suggest Tasha Alexander's new series which follows an independent and stubborn educated lady in Queen Victoria's time.

    A+

    I just finished reading this book and was pleasantly surprised. I found it intriguing and very satisfying. It wasn't at all tedious like the previous book tended to be in places and I didn't want to put it down. Yes, it was predictable, but it was still a fun adventure. If you are looking for a quick read I would highly recommend checking it out.

    a good book if you don't compare it to austen's pride and prejudice

    sure the book didn't really reflect on p&p, but that made it all the better. It's pretty hard to rival the prose and dynamic characters which jane austen provides. If you're dissapointed, it's your own fault for anticipating a sufficient sequel. Even from the original author herself, you may just be dissapointed..(like pygmalion..i thought shaw was accusing me personally when he admonished the public for their lack of imagination)

    charming

    a charming, curl-up-and-read book. completely predictable but engaging nonetheless. not recommended if you want a work of great literary genious (as jane austen was)... but altogther much better than 'mr darcys daughters' which was very much like pride and predjudice... (so rather tedious). overall, a fun romp
