Overview

In Pride and Prejudice, Fitzwilliam Darcy begins his relationship with Elizabeth Bennet with the words: "She is tolerable, but not handsome enough to tempt me; I am in no humour at present togive consequence to young ladies who are slighted by other men." What would have happened if Mr. Darcy had never spoken so disdainfully? First Impressions explores how the events of Jane Austen's beloved novel would have transpired if Darcy and Elizabeth had danced together at the Meryton Assembly. Jane and Bingley's relationship blossoms unimpeded, Mary makes a most fortunate match, and Lydia never sets a foot in Brighton. Austen's witty style is authentically invoked in this playful romp from Longbourn to Pemberley.

Editorial Reviews

http://janeaustenreviews.blogspot.com/ - Meredith Esparza
What a delightful and enchanting debut novel from Alexa Adams! I have read quite a handful of Pride and Prejudice variations and I found First Impressions to be a praiseworthy addition to the collection. I took pleasure in Ms. Adams' rich and witty dialogue as well as her reverence and respect towards Jane Austen's original characters. Furthermore, Ms. Adams has a beautiful command of language and successfully captures Jane Austen's satirical tone in her writing.

In its extremely pleasant “what if “ scenario, the story develops so smoothly and charmingly that it is very difficult to stop and put the book down. From the first “what-if turn” everything goes a different way towards very enjoyable, amusing events.I found myself smiling during my break in the teachers’ room at school, waiting for my husband ..., queuing at the post office, and this especially because Austen’s witty style is authentically recreated.
