I am a die-hard Jane Austen fan and I enjoyed this story very much, partially because it did NOT attempt to imitate Austen's style in any forced or stilted way, as some other fan fiction has tried to do. I have read other P&P "sequels" that seem only to quote Austen's own prose, and have found myself thinking "I would just as well prefer to read the original than have it spliced and quoted in this awkward way." This author has her own voice and it works for me. Also, I think it helps that Darcy and Elizabeth are quite minor characters in this story, which allows space to develop the other characters,, filling out their story so that you come to care about what happens to them, as all good fiction ought to do. Well edited, too, in the sense that I wasn't distracted by annoying typos or grammatical errors. I would recommend this book to Austen fans and historical fiction fans. I felt compelled to finish it in one sitting. Enjoy.

    continues Austin's story further

    using the device of diary entries, Elliott carries the character of Mr. Darcy's sister out of the shadows into the spotlight on her own right. She becomes an interesting, witty and
    believable character as she moves through life in heer brother's home. It is a pleasant read.

    Not a lot of substance

    If your expecting a book up to par with Austen's novels you will be disappointed but if you just want a quick, light,read it's okay. It is very predictable and the characters didn't really come alive for me.

    Not like Jane herself, but not bad.

    If you will be very aware of the myriad little slips, do not pick this one up. However, if you can drift along with the narrative jusrr to see what the author has decided to do with the secondary characters from P& P, you may find this entertaining.

    Highly Recomemnded

    For those of us who loved the works of Jane Austen this is a keeper! Anna Elliott captures the spirit of the original but adds a few "tickles" of her own to these characters. Thoroughly enjoyable for a quick read!

    A fun continuation of Pride and Prejudice.  It was nice to get to know Georgiana and see her grow up a bit.  I felt some things were a little out of character for some of the characters, specifically Lady Catherine De Bourgh.  Fun story though.

    Interesting and fun.

    The author writes in the tradition of Jane Austen. Predictable but interesting.
