it was amazing

As a Jane Austen enthusiaist, I am always curious about adaptations of her works. I was very pleased with the retelling of her most famous work through the eyes of Darcy as one of the damned. Upon reflection, Darcy's temperment is a perfect fit for the brooding vampire.

I was pleased to see that Saucier kept to Austen's tale, while adding her own scenes and interludes that easily could've been missed in Austen's original. I also appreciated the fact that Saucier's vampire followed the classic rules of vampirism (no sparkling mind-readers here).

Saucier's language follows the style of 19th century literature, while adding the necessary imagery to engage the 21st century reader. She also appeals to the modern reader with a more satisfying conclusion in the final section that is all her own--Beyond Pride and Prejudice.

If you are in any way a fan of Mr. Darcy, this is a must-read.
