If you compare this book to the original story of P&P you may feel this book moves at a much slower pace as the main thrust of this novel is 5 friends coming together to form a business alliance. The crucial scenes that lead to Darcy having feelings for Elizabeth do not happen until you've read through half the novel. I thoroughly enjoyed it and it leaves you at a cliff-hanger so you have to read the next one!

So much more than is necessary to discuss the business alliance Darcy and Bingley wish to establish with their friends. Skipped over so much. Loved the competition the men were involved in. Did not like this Darcy until the very end. Not pleased with the ending. Still questioning if I will read the second part.
