Enjoyed again immensely. This time appreciated the familial relationships, particularly Darcy & Georgiana. Reread the real thing at same time and felt, again, that all in all, Aidan did a pretty fair job of recreating.
This book takes Darcy from Elizabeth's rejection to just beyond the end of "Pride & Prejudice."
The thing I liked the very best about this book is that Darcy's biggest problem with what Elizabeth said about him at the rejection was that he did not beha...more
Leaving aside the ill-advised venture into Gothic in volume 2, the main reason for that inordinate length is Darcy's internal reflections. They are necessary, because the author's stated purpose is to explain Darcy's behaviou...more

Sicuramente "Quello che resta" è il migliore poiché vengono narrati, dal punto di vista di Darcy, le vicende che tutti noi conosciamo. Il Darcy della Aidan è diverso dall'originale. Del libro ho apprezzato la fedeltà al romanzo della Austen, la riproposizione delle battute originali, l'introspezione psicologica (soprattutto del protagonista maschile) e le ambientazioni molto curate. Il fatto...more
This book covered the next critical phase of the Darcy – Elizabeth relationship – the proposal, the rejection and the turnaround.
The story opens with Darcy and Colonel’s carriage flying on its way to Rosings Park – for their annual and much dreaded trip to see their aunty, Lady Catherine.Little does Darcy know that Elizabeth would be at Hunsford v...more

But boy oh boy, talk about having to jump some real hurdles before scoring her!
This book didn't disappoint, which is nice since it's where the most fundamental pieces of the Pride and Prejudice story happen. The first proposal, and refusal, the visit to Pemberley, the Lydia drama, and the reun...more
Quanto è rimasto a me, a conclusione della trilogia e parlando globalmente di tutti i libri della Aidan, devo ammettere che è un pò pochino.
Il primo libro aveva acceso facili entusiasmi, dettati dalla riproposizione di una storia che a me è sempre piaciuta parecchio (mmmmmh le piccole arguzie di Jane Austen!e i suoi personaggi!non conosco nessuno che stia al pari di Mrs. Bennet quando offre per la caccia i propri stormi a Mr. Bingley!).
Jumping immediately back into the main story of P&P I was hooked through all 437pages to the exciting, happy conclusion that I know so well! Written from Darcy's perspective made me even happier for him knowing the excruciating personal and emotional trials he endured throughout the whole story. He had to learn. Elizabeth had to learn.
I loved reading Pamela Aiden's trilogy, and would absolutely recommend it if you are a P&P/Jane...more

Here, we see a much changed Fitwilliam. We pick up in Kent, when he meets up with Elizabeth again, and see how things look from his side of the Parson's lane, which is great. There are some moments of invention and imagination here, and it's good to feel the pain that Darcy feels. Because you really do undergo...more
“The third in Aidan's “Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman” trilogy (following An Assembly Such as This, and Duty and Desire) begins as Darcy returns to London in defeat after his disastrous proposal of marriage, but realizes, after some time and distance, that Elizabeth’s rejection has provided him with "the opportunity to become a better man." Months later, a fortuitous meeting with Elizabeth offers them the chance to renew their friendship and for Fitzwilliam to prove he has changed for t...more
