    Great book - wonderful sequel

    If you loved the 2005 version of Pride & Prejudice starring Keira Knightley and Matthew MacFadyen, this book is the sequel you have been waiting for. The book begins after the wedding of Elizabeth Bennet & Fitzwilliam Darcy and follows the beginning of their married life together. As a young couple in love, they are excited to start their marriage. Not to be a spoiler, but the newlyweds are very inexperienced in male-female relationships and you have to take in account the time period of this story. It is quite sweet to see them discover the kind of intimacies that a newlywed couple has. Contrary to some reviews, this book is not all about sex ¿ if it was, I wouldn¿t have wasted my time reading it. Of course, Lizzy and William are finally free to express their love for each other and both are still apprehensive on what to do next. Author Sharon Lathan does a fantastic job filling in the blanks and expanding on Lizzy and William¿s relationship. She goes back in time to further explain the many twists and turns of their journey to find each other. I was struck by how lonely William was and expected to be when he thought he would not have a future with Elizabeth. I also found their devotion to one another and the ¿comfortableness¿ they achieved enchanting though both were still shy at times. If you close your eyes, you can actually hear Keira & Matthew using Ms. Lathan¿s words as their own. With Lizzy & William¿s families filling in the backdrop of their lives, a very interesting and multi-layered story is told. True to their relationship becoming more familiar, there are more scenes with Lizzy & William expanding their special time alone towards the end of the book. The view into their love for each other did bring a blush to my face, but I still could not put the book down. Kudos to Ms. Lathan for her courage in writing a sequel to this beloved Jane Austen story. Her thoughtful insights and detailed character development made me wish this was a movie. The good news is that this is volume 1 of the story of Fitzwilliam & Elizabeth Darcy ¿ I look forward to futures volumes.

    Not True To The Book

    Sharon Lathan's attempt at a Pride and Prejudice sequel was not true to the actual Jane Austen story. References used to tie the new story to the old were not from the book. Lathan used references from the Keira Knightly version of the movie to reference her story. References that were not in the original version of Pride and Prejudice. For the true Austen fan, this book will not feel like a continuation of the story. Rather, a story written in the time period that we love and using the names of characters that we hold dear.

    I love Austen sequels but this one misses the mark and feels more like an excuse to write about an imagined sexual relationship with the actors of the movie.

    Don't Waste Your Time!

    I love all things Pride and Prejudice, but this book was awful. Lost are the intricacies of the characters - what made them 3-dimensional and "real" in the original book. That has all been replaced with a sickly-sweet romantic relationship based entirely on lust. There is no story here; the characters don't grow at all and there are no interesting subplots. The author had many opportunities to make the story interesting, but failed to do so at every turn.

    A reviewer

    I enjoyed this book very much, though it does not follow the origional book strictly it is a charming scenario of the conjectured post marital felicity of the beloved Elizabeth/Darcy based on the 2005 movie version of Pride and Prejudice with Keira Knightley and Mathew Macfadyen. I found I couldn't wait until the next instalments come out.

    One of my favorites!

    I have read quite a few Mr. Darcy books and I really enjoyed this one. It started a bit slow to me but the loving relationship you have between Lizzy and William is second to none. It is not at all racy and much more on the sweet side of romance. I was only sad to see it end but am looking forward to the next edition in this series!
