What a terrific read! This short story is a follow-up to "Pride and Prejudice," providing the reader with an insight to the thoughts and opinions of Mr. Darcy in the situations detailed objectively in the original book. I was very impressed with the manner in which the story was written, following closely the style of Jane Austen, and presenting an overview and understanding as to the actions and words of Mr. Darcy. Anyone who enjoyed "Pride and Prejudice," either the book or even one of the movies, will truly enjoy reading this, the story of Mr. Darcy. It is a very quick read (about 56 pages or so) but will make you want to pull out the original story, now that you understand the reasons for Mr. Darcy's often dour words and actions. What a wonderful and enjoyable read; thank you!!
