did not like it
Read from August 02 to 06, 2011

I'm not quite sure why I kept at this. I was somewhat intrigued that the plot of Pride and Prejudice was about to end and the book still had 100 or so pages to go.

This book could have been excellent but in reality was terrible. It seemed like an excuse for some attention for Herendeen, this could have been any smutty romance novel but why not use an established, well liked classic to get your mark out there?

As the main characters were really elizabeth and Darcy, why was so much of this book dedicated to Darcy and Bingley? Why not Elizabeth and Charlotte? Or Elizabeth and Wickham or any other pairing for that matter?

I disliked the match of Bingley and Darcy and how Darcy always had to be 'the man'.

This book was an incredibly disappointing, waste of time.
