LOVED THIS BOOK! Go read it now if you like P&P.
I was afraid, since I had just barely read P&P, that I wouldn’t agree with Ms. Grange on what she thought Darcy was thinking but I do! (Not all of you will probably, so don’t shoot me)
It was great to see through Darcy’s eyes, I fell in love with him even more. A lot of people are very shrewd when it comes to Austen “sequels” but I think this one is great. You can totally see how perfect he is for Elizabeth. In all honesty after I read P&P I wasn’t in love with Darcy (at least, not as much as I was with Firth) but after Mr. Darcy’s Diary I’m swooning. Completely swooning.
The other characters were also very well developed. I loved seeing how truly wicked Caroline Bingley is and how sweet Georgianna is.
SLIGHT P&P SPOILAGE (though you all should know this)
A little warning, Ms. Grange takes the liberty of going a couple months after Elizabeth and Darcy are married. I know that this might bug some of you because it’s not actually in the original P&P, but I found it absolutely delightful. Positively charming!
