Overview

IN PRIDE&PREJUDICE, JANE AUSTEN brought together one of the most beloved literary couples of all time—Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy. Now, Mr. Darcy Presents His Bride continues the story of these passion-filled newlyweds as they enter London’s glamorous high society.
This page-turning novel finds Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy entangled in the frivolity and ferocity of social intrigues. Although Elizabeth makes a powerful friend in the Marchioness of Englebury, the rivalry and jealousy among her ladyship’s prestigious clique threatens to destroy the success of her new marriage.
Written in the style of Jane Austen, full of humor and sardonic wit, Mr. Darcy Presents His Bridebrings Regency society vividly to life and continues the romantic, sometimes tragic, stories of other popular Pride&Prejudice characters including Georgiana Darcy and Kitty Bennet.

I couldn't get past the first few chapters due to the glaring grammatical errors. Skipping to the last few chapters, it appears the writer decided to completely change the essence of a few main characters.

Using Jane Austen's original characters from Pride and Prejudice, Shapiro's sequel tries to immerse us in Austen's novel, right after Elizabeht's and Darcy's marriage. While the plot could be interesting, Shapiro's writing lacks of the thrill and feelings that Austen's novels provide, and therefore makes the plot seem dull and predictable. Also, I wonder how conscious was her editor while reviewing the drafts. Not only commas are missing, but in the chapter 26, a fatal mistake was made, and I quote: "She found, once more, that she had ple3 nty of reasons to be boastful" (Shapiro, pg. 176) I think that mistake alone reflects the quality of the book.

Ok, I'll admit it. I'm kind of a Jane Austen dork. Do you have a Pride and Prejudice sequel? Well, I've probably read it. And I have to say, when you've read as many as I have they begin to mesh together big time. It's a lot of "wait...you say she's too fragile but I thought you taught her how to use a gun?" and "Georgiana and Co. Fitzwilliam? But what about that other guy who owns the estate not too far from Pemberley?" But this one stuck out in my mind. The author has obviously read the book (unlike some which will not be mentioned) and took her time to come up with a couple of twists that could actually be possible. The characters are very true to Jane Austen characters and Shapiro's style mimics Austen's. I just wish it were a bit longer.

Great story; good writing and fun to read- I highly recommend it to Austen purists and those who like a good story. The plot is fun and the Austen characters well done. BUT BEWARE: This book was previously published in 2002. The previous title is Excessively Diverted. The first publisher was different as was the ISBN number. The publisher of this version does not provide this information.

I was very excited with I first read the excerpt to this book and when I finally brought it and started reading it I have to say I was truly disappointed with the direction of the characters written in the book. I would not recommended it for other to read.
