    Worth Reading

    I foud this book a fun read. Having read some really bad fiction for the Continuation of P&P this is pretty good. The tone of the book matches Jane's work and while Barret is not Jane at least she doesn't slaughter the time period or what Jane left behind in her epilogue to P&P.

    A Wonderful Continuation of Pride & Prejudice

    As an avid Austen fan, I was a little nervous about reading anything proposing itself to be a Jane Austen sequel. However, my fear was quickly removed. Presumption was wonderful. Although the focus was on Georgianna Darcy rather than on Elizabeth (Bennett) Darcy, I was equally pleased with the story telling. I found the style of writing and the development of old and new characters to be very much in the same spirit of Jane's own writing. Presumption painted a wonderful picture of life after Pride & Prejudice. I loved it!!

    Dear Johanna

    First, if you loved the movie version of P&P, why in the world would you turn to any book other than Austen's? Secondly, learn to spell words like 'to'. And thirdly, No one does it like Jane Austen. If you want Pride and Prejudice, read the real thing.

    terribly dissapointed!!

    I had seen the movie Pride & Prjudice and was completely in love w/ the story and the characters. I couldn't wait 2 read all of Jane Austen's books. I decided i wouldn't read Pride & Prejusice, since i had seen the movie(5 times) so i decided 2 read Presumption. First of all, i was soo confused w/ the setting and all the complicated vocabulary that it had, it was hard 2 follow along, i didn't even finish the book b/c it was way too complicated for me. I was looking forward to a marvelous romantic stroy, but only found myself shocked w/ dissapointment. I would deffinitely NOT reccomend this book 2 anyone.

    Just okay...

    This book wasn't awful as described by some reviewers, but it wasn't great either. If you are looking to spend more time with Lizzy and Darcy - you really don't get much of that from this book. It is a quick, enjoyable read though and is another fun spin on what might have happened after the wedding. The focus is much more on Georgiana though so be warned.

    Absolutely Horrid

    This is one to miss. It is mainly focused on Mr. Darcy's sister Georgianna, and turns her character into that of a petulant child. Other aspects are hardly worth mentioning. The only good part is a certain rake gets what he deserves.

    A Waste of Time

    If you ever wondered what happened to Eliza and all of her sisters after the happy ending of Pride & Prejudice, you will be disappointed with this novel. The characters are hardly recognizable. Nothing has been written to further our understanding of them and situations arise that seem barely plausible. In short, I found this account of their future lives unsatisfactory. I wish the 'unknown' author who completed Sanditon, Austen's unfinished novel would write the follow-up to P&P.
