review The Perfect Bride for Mr. Darcy

The Perfect Bride for Mr. Darcy Free read ï 109 Mary Lydon Simonsen À 9 Free read Ess and Elizabeth's wounded pride are going to keep them both from the loves of their livesGeorgiana can't let that happen so she readily agrees to help her. This review was first posted here This Pride and Prejudice variation starts at the beginning of PP with a few chapters summarising the events but from Darcy s point of view than Elizabeth s Darcy still offends her and still interferes with Bingley and Jane He goes to visit Lady Catherine at Rosings not on a duty visit as in canon but because Mrs Hurst mentioned that Elizabeth would be visiting her cousin in Kent Darcy has no intention of proposing when he goes to Hunsford Parsonage which is why his proposal is so bad Darcy is very close to his cousin Anne and he confides in her what has happenedAnne decides on a plan of action to help her cousin successfully woo Miss Bennet and she begins by befriending her Elizabeth is much less strongly against Darcy than in canon and although she sees that Anne is trying to repair her opinion of Darcy Elizabeth is regretful of her treatment of him and she s happy to enter into a correspondence with Anne This means that Anne is aware of Elizabeth s plans and whereabouts and she s able to arrange a chance meeting between Elizabeth and DarcyThe thing I probably liked best about this book was the fleshing out of Anne s character Although frail she is a very determined lady well she is Lady Catherine s daughter after all She genuinely loves her cousins and wants the best for them Georgiana is also very sweet in this variation She is much less shy than canon and very uick on the uptake She and Darcy are close and in a moment of weakness he mentions something to her regarding being told by an intelligent lady that one bad sonnet was sufficient to drive love away Georgiana immediately latches on to the significance of this and from then on is on the lookout for the lady she dubs Miss Sonnet so she can help smooth her brother s path to loveSome better established characters are different too Lizzy is much less set against Darcy and comes to a realisation even while still at Kent that she and Darcy could possibly have been happy together By the time she s finished reading his letter she has begun to regret refusing him There was also a big difference in Jane Bennet who has learned a harsh lesson from Bingley s abandonment and now isn t so predisposed to forgiveness and she also re assesses her view of her parents and the upbringing she and her sisters have hadThere are also some new characters such as Bingley having a much larger family although we only meet his eldest brother George who is an extremely hard headed and successful business man less genteel than his youngest siblings but relied upon by some of the people with breeding than money Another original character was the delightful Lord Antony Fitzwilliam who also appeared in A Perfect Wife for Mr Darcy Lord Antony Note I m not sure people were addressed Lord firstname but I m not saying it s wrong because the naming conventions with titles pickle my brain is Colonel Fitzwilliam s older brother He is a gambler constantly in debt and has a very hostile marriage but he is well worth having in a story because of his amusement value due to his facetious sayings and lack of tact When Mrs Hurst is talking about visiting a sister he came out with this gem of uote which certainly made me a proud Welshwoman chortle But not in Wales I hope The Celtic race was pushed into the corners Scotland Wales Cornwall and in the case of the Irish onto their own island People who live in corners are always odd and should be avoided The Darcy in this story is devoted to Elizabeth but he hasn t been a monk up until this point and there are references to him having had mistresses and lovers in the past and a few sexual references which some readers may not like However I am in the camp that think it wouldn t have been unlikely for this to have been the case it wasn t a dishonourable thing to do especially for a single man of the times What I was a little surprised at is that Elizabeth doesn t seem bothered by this idea Being of a lower class of society than him and being younger I felt that she might not have held such cosmopolitan viewsI felt that this was like a cross between an alternate point of view retelling and a variation One of the things I really like about variations is that seemingly small changes can have a ripple effect and end up making things uite different but this isn t the case here although some different things happen all the major plot milestones remain the same I would have liked to have seen things change a bit For example the character of George Bingley played a role in a particular part in this story and it made only a little difference to the outcome from the original book The changes here are nuances than seismic shifts However I found it an enjoyable romantic read the type that when you look up from your book you realise a very long time has passed since you last looked at a clock and you should have gone to sleep two hours ago which is a fine accoladeI d rate this as 3 stars

The Perfect Bride for Mr. Darcy Free read ï 109 Mary Lydon Simonsen À 9 Free read If the two of them weren't so stubbornIt's obvious to Georgiana Darcy that the lovely Elizabeth Bennet is her brother's perfect match but Darcy's pigheadedn. Fan fiction can be fun Often fan fiction is really good The Pefect Wife for Mr Darcy is neither fun nor good Evidently some 30 40% of women who have read Jane Austen fancy they can do as well and the fiction and romance fiction sections abound with seuels preuels and spin offs of Pride and Prejudice When the writers have done their homework on English eighteenth and nineteenth century s behaviors religious gender and class conventions and language written and spoken they often do uite well But a lot of these books are written by mere fansand I m afraid this book falls into the latter category Perfect for readers who found Austen s Pride and Prejudice hard to follow and would prefer a dumbed down cutesy retelling It s like Pride and Prejudiced based on the movie Pride and Predujice based on the cliff notes of Pride and Prejudice It s not even a hilariously bad guilty pleasure like the Jane Austen as sleuth series in which she loses her virginity to a rakish lord on the darkened grounds of Stirling Castle

    The Perfect Bride for Mr. Darcy (PDF) I'm on the fence about this book because there are things that I really liked and other things that I didn't with a lot that probably falls somewhere in between Many Austenesue books can be read without having read the original Austen novels but this one I would advise that the reader have already read the original story Pride and Prejudice or have seen the movie just so reader will have optimal enjoyment when reading and avoid a feeling
