Overview

In Jane Austen's "Pride and Prejudice", Mr. Bennet had this to say about Mr. Darcy, "We all know him to be a proud, unpleasant sort of man..." Elizabeth Bennet, herself, spoke of his arrogance, his conceit, and his selfish disdain of the feelings of others--the last man in the world whom she could ever be prevailed on to marry. Mr. Darcy's housekeeper, Mrs. Reynolds, described him as the best landlord and master who ever lived. Such varying accounts as these are exceedingly puzzling, indeed.


This amorous, provocative, and at times tumultuous tale, illustrates Mr. Darcy as a wealthy young man of sense and education, as well as considerable worldly experience--not at all uncommon for Regency era gentlemen of his social standing. He is his own master. He enjoys his lifestyle and has no particular desire to marry at all.


That is, until he renews his acquaintance with Miss Elizabeth Bennet--her own circumstances greatly diminished pursuant to the sudden and tragic death of her father.


To Have His Cake (and Eat It Too) tells of Darcy's journey from a man who, indeed, is proud and haughty, to one who seeks to please a woman worthy of being pleased.

In this P&P sequel purple prose, an insufferably boorish Darcy, a wishy-washy Elizabeth and endless exposition on the protagonists' tormented thoughts band together to trample a promising plot to death. Darcy and Elizabeth spend most of the novel a) fretting about trivialities, b) fretting about what the other might or might not be thinking, c) fretting about what people around them might be thinking or d) all of the above. Fans of the Twilight series or the 2005 movie which claims to be based on Pride and Prejudice may enjoy this novel, but those hoping for a more Austen-like offering should look elsewhere.
