Pride and Prescience: Or, A Truth Universally Acknowledged

I absolutley loved this book. It honestly stayed true to the original characters and hinted romance without being raunchy. She really imitated the feel of a JA novel without being too flowery.

In my last critique of this novel I judged it as absolutely wild and ridiculous. Now, after reading Linda Berdol¿s take on Darcy and Elizabeth, I had to reconsider my hash words. This book truly stays true to Darcy and Elizabeth. They act in the precise manner Jane Austen would have wanted them to act in the given situations. Darcy is¿well Darcy and Elizabeth is full of sharp wit and spunk. Best of all there romance tastefully hinted upon and discrete. I truly think this Author has an unparalleled ability to capture the real Darcy and Elizabeth. Where this book fails however is with its ridiculous plot. This isn¿t Gothic it¿s insane. Magic rings, spells, and so on. It¿s all too, too much. But the characters are so authentic to Austen¿s that I advice reading it anyway. I¿d love to see this author continue Austen style books with less outlandish plots.

    best sequel I have read

    Very well done for a sequel. The story started off well with Elizabeth and Darcy as the same characters from Pride and Predjuice. There was witty conversation and a believeable story line. Caroline Bingley announces her engagment to an American at Elizabeths wedding. The Darcys postpone returning to Pemberly to attend the wedding. Immediatley after Caroline begins behaving very strangley. Her family even considers having her put away. This is the point where the story line changes and magic is brought in. The story feels very sci-fi. If you want a good read and not strict jane austen you will like this book.

    A modern gothic novel

    There have been many attempts at sequels to Pride and Prejudice. This one (as a mystery) is unique. It was a fun and fast read. Carrie Bebris stays true (for the most part) to the original characters although there are moments when the dialog seems a bit too modern. If you are like me, and feel compelled to read all the sequels you can find, then by all means, buy the book. I gave it only 3 of 5 stars because really, nothing can compare to the original.
