I've been excessively diverted by the difference in reviews for this book in the US and UK. It is A Parody... So if you are expecting anything like a gentle and amusing homage to either P&P or fifty shades, then avoid. This book is irreverent, rude and very funny. I am a huge Jane Austen fan, I love romance novels and I have read the 50 shades series and liked aspects of those books too. however, I also love satire and loved the debunking of romance cliches...but I didn't run away shrieking with a fit of the vapours to see the genre made fun of.

Format: Paperback
"Fifty Shades of Mr. Darcy" is described as "A titillating mash-up of an erotic bestseller and a romantic classic, peppered with puns." As an unabashed reader of anything Jane Austen or "Pride & Prejudice"... as well as a blushing, shameless fan of E. L. James' "Fifty Shades of Grey", I confess, my curiosity was piqued. How could it not? In a literary world of sequels, prequels and what ifs, it was but a foregone conclusion that someone would lampoon these two bestsellers together. Contrived by a writer with a silly nom de plume, William Codpiece Thwackery, how could this be anything but a hoot? (Warning: Spoilers.)

"It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good riding crop must be in want of a pair of bare buttocks to thrash." Eh-hem. And that is how we find Elizabeth Bennet, tied to Mr. Darcy's bedposts, flashing back to how she came to such a moment... Mrs. Bennet, now on her 4th husband, Billy Bob Bennett--she previously "bonked" to death his predecessors (Thwackery's word choice, not mine) announces to her family, "I have heard that both men are considerably well endowed. Both have huge packages..." Unlike Austen's irrepressible Elizabeth who possesses a dry wit, enjoys spotting a fool, and refuses to be taken lightly, this Elizabeth is not even offended by Mr. Darcy's initial slight; she does at least resist her mother's pleas to don a leather mini-dress. "If Mr. Darcy considers himself above our station, I can understand it. After all, our stepfather has but two thousand pounds a year, and Mr. Darcy is a man of vast wealth, and well known for his charitable works." One of which is his support of unwed mothers in a business venture called Hooters.

Wow. Horrid. I love satire. I love mash-ups. I hated this book. The sample had me thinking I'd be seeing a strong, dominant and super sexy Darcy, don't trust the sample in this case. The book is neither funny or sexy.

A great blend of both books with a satisfying ending and plenty of funny moments. One example: messages between Darcy and Elizabeth are carried back and forth by their servants, Mr. Lapptop and Mrs. Blackberry. Great blend of the old with the new!

I started to read this book, thought it might be interesting. First few pages were vulgar and crude. I will finish the book, but only because I paid for it. Will not recommend unless you truly enjoy vulgarity.

It is my fault. I should have realized it was modeled after "Fifty Shades". I couldn't read that book either.

Stilted writing with a poor use of humor. Non-realistic characters that aren't enjoyable or relatable. A poor representation of romance and erotica.

I was excited to find Fifty Shades of Mr. Darcy by William Codpiece Thwackery, a parody combination of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice and James' Fifty Shades of Grey, two of my favorite books. The author's use of language, cliches, and puns are hilarious! Thwackery did wonderful work in making it easy for the reader to make the comparison between the Regency Era and the 21st Century. I will recommend Fifty Shades of Mr. Darcy to anyone who likes historical romance, regency, romance, erotica, and romantic comedies. I gave it 4 stars because I thought it was too short. :D
