    Very Good

    I got this because it was free. I am so glad I did. You get the chance to see Elizabthe and Fitzwillaim Darcy after they are married, but Caroline Bingley, and the other Mr. Darcy. Very fun and light reading. I agree with one of the other reviewers that the typo's is VERY distracting but did not take away from a very nice twist to an old story. B&N I hope you can fix this in your books, I have seen this another book but cannot remember which one at this time. Please look into this, I realize this is a less expensive way for readers to obtain books, but the quality in the text should be just as high as a printed book. If you love Jane Austen but are not a purist, you will love this wonderful story.

    JANE AUSTEN WOULD HAVE BEEN PROUD

    I got this book because it was free for the nook and Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite all time books. I did not pay much attention to the title. When I started reading I realized that "The Other Mr. Darcy" is about characters from the original story but it is a brand new story. This is the story of Robert Darcy, who is Fitzwilliam Darcy's cousin and Caroline Bingley, Charles Bingleys' sister. It was so great to be able to read a story I had never read while still being able to realate to all the characters that you already know and love. The story is told so well in that language that makes you feel like it was written by someone long ago that you actually feel like Jane Austen herself wrote it. I was very pleasantly surprised and recommend it to Jane Austen fans and especially those who love Pride and Prejudice.

    It was a great point of view from the witchtastic Caroline Bingley. This story really makes her human and you learn to love her. Loved it!

    I liked Carolyn!

    This reminded me of ThePhiladelphis Story a little. I verymuch like Robert Darcy. This wasoneof the more interesting Pride and Pred. Variations i have read. Well done.

    Really good

    I loved reading Pride and Prejudice, and I feel that the way Jane Austen portrayed Mr. Darcy's character was perfect. As I am reading The Other Mr. Darcy, the author has done a wonderful job in creating a charasmatic, outgoing character like Robert and I think that Austen would have approved. The character development is good, and I can feel the tension more between Caroline and Robert than I did with Eliza and Darcy. 5 stars.

    Perfect

    I have to say I couldnt stand Caroline Bingley in Pride and Predjudice. In this book we see a softer side of her and I fell in love with her. What a wonderfully written story Jane Austen would be proud.

    Ditto Caution

    I, too, have suffered the terrible avalance of typos between pages 60-75. This is VERY disturbing while reading. I would like to finish the book but don't know if I will make it through the next avalance of AU:;, where there should be quotations. B&N can this be fixed???????
    I am happy that I got this book free. If I had paid for it I would have demanded a refund.

    would recommend.

    This book was fantastic! I've read it twice now. I love this one and AustenLand by Shannon Hale. Both are fabulous Austen born-again books!!! Wonderful!

    Caution Nook Readers

    I was going along fine and all of a sudden around page 60 I started getting these "Au" with dots over the A on the pages and as I read they got worse and worse! AT chapter 7 they stopped, BUT than at page 130ish they started up again. Needless to say it's become too confusion to read, bummer. I was really looking forward to finishing this book:(
