These Three Remain (Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman #3)
With those devastating words, Fitzwilliam Darcy�s proposal to Elizabeth Bennet is thoroughly rejected and his character wholly condemned. These Three Remain traces Darcy�s painful journey of self-discovery in his quest to become the man he always hoped be would be. A chance meeting with Elizabeth at h...more
I think a lot of men will find Mr. Darcy's emotional obsession with Elizabeth to be a little heavy-handed (consider Dave Barry's definitive treatise on the topic of male/female relati...more
If your stated purpose in writing is to tell the same story from a different point of view, then tell the SAME STORY from a different point of view. Obviously, some gaps need to be filled in, since there'...more
The series covers the same period of time that Jane Austen used in Pride and Prejudice, but instead of Elizabeth as the mai...more
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
In alcuni punti ho trovato Darcy leggermente fuori dal tracciato lasciato da Miss Austen, forse troppo damerino o, meglio, fin troppo aperto ad esporre i suoi sentimenti ad amici e servitori.
Bella la figura di Fletcher, che rappresenta in un certo senso la "coscienza" inconsapevole del suo signore.
Molto affascinante, anche se poco credibile, il personaggio di Dy, l'ami...more

I wish I could put into words how much I adore this book. I started reading all the Jane Austen's sequels and AU's and spin off's probably about five or six years ago and haven't stop since. Some of them are good, some are okay and some make you want to stab your eyes out with a fork at the careless regard done to these beloved characters. Bu...more
If you want to write trashy romance novels, then you just go right ahead and write some trashy romance novels. No one will judge. Promise, there is plenty of readership to support that genre. But whatever you do, please, PLEASE, keep that stuff away from my Jane Austen. I mean, I gave you a chance, the first book in the series was decent enough to make me want to read the second. The second book was aweful...really, just plain usel...more
Even Darcy started to get on my nerves, and I've always had great patience with him. Another Goodreads member commented on his endless ablutions and by the time I closed this book I had to agree. By this third book there were no fresh ways to describe Darcy's bathing rituals, or his beloved's eyes. I was glad to b...more
Although he's a bit off track, I also like Dyfed Brougham; although, I recognize there's absolutely no need for him--he's just a fun character, like Fletcher, is--something t...more
While I still maintain that the original has more in its less than 200 pages than this 3-volume interpretation, I did enjoy this last book the best by far. In fact, I'm not even sure the first two books were necessary at all...more
