About the Author

Nancy Kelley is a Janeite, an Austenesque author, and a blogger. During the writing of His Good Opinion, a version of Mr. Darcy took up residence in her brain; she fondly refers to him as the Darcy in My Head, or DIMH. If Nancy could possess any fictional device, it would be a Time-Turner. Then perhaps she could juggle a full-time library job, writing, and blogging; and still find time for sleep and a life. Until then, she lives on high doses of tea, of which DIMH approves. You can find Nancy on Twitter @Nancy_Kelley, on her blog, and on Indiejane.org.

More About the Author

Nancy Kelley--Janeite, blogger, and chocoholic--is the author of three Jane Austen sequels, His Good Opinion: A Mr. Darcy Novel, Loving Miss Darcy, and Against His Will. She currently resides in the Pacific Northwest but dreams of moving to England someday. Until then, frequent trips across the pond satisfy her inner Anglophile.

If Nancy could possess any fictional device, it would be a TARDIS. Not only would it make international travel easier, but she would be able to go back to her favorite historical periods and meet the authors who inspired her to write.

You can find Nancy on Twitter @Nancy_Kelley, at nancykelleywrites.com, and at Indiejane.org.

I have read a couple of Pride and Prejudice retellings from Darcy's point of view and I must say I loved this one!

His Good Opinion starts out just before Ramsgate where Darcy surprises Georgiana with a visit and ruins Wickman's plan to elope with her. Nancy Kelley is able to expand on some of the conversations that I always wished Jane Austen would have done.

Can I just say, I love this Darcy! I love being in his head, knowing his thoughts. We see him reflecting on what Elizabeth said when she refused him. He begins to notice how he treats people beneath him. I also like the relationship he has with Georgiana, he confides in her more.

Another favorite of mine is Colonel Fitzwilliam. I delight in the banter between him and Darcy. This is the Colonel Fitzwilliam that I like! He's funny, charming and loves to tease Darcy. There were times he had me laughing out loud.

This is Nancy Kelley's first novel and a beautiful story. A definite must read! She is currently working on another story about Colonel Fitzwilliam that I can't wait to read!

In His Good Opinion, author Nancy Kelley sets out to tell the story of Pride and Prejudice from Mr. Darcy's point of view. Although Darcy is the hero in Pride and Prejudice, for the first part of the book he comes across to Elizabeth (as well as everyone else in Hertfordshire) and the reader as proud and aloof. In the second half of the novel, Austen shows us how Darcy changes and Darcy himself admits to flaws in his behavior. But why was Darcy seemingly so proud? Why did he refuse to be easily pleased, withholding his good opinion more often than he bestowed it. And why would someone like Darcy fall in love with a girl like Elizabeth - someone open and vivacious and not at all concerned with securing his good opinion?

Told from Darcy's point of view, this novel follows Darcy from London where he has become increasingly turned off by the artifices of society, to the country where he meets Elizabeth for the first time. As he become enchanted with her the reader is similarly enchanted by this version of Mr. Darcy. The blow of Lizzy's rejection of Darcy's proposal is felt more keenly than ever before because we as readers find ourselves rooting for Darcy. His heartbreak is real and touching, and frankly, makes him irresistible. As he comes to term with the rejection and takes Lizzy's criticisms to heart, he endeavors to become a man worthy of her love - even if he can never have her.

The book follows the timeline of Pride and Prejudice, but because it is told from Darcy's point of view, readers are treated to scenes that we have previously been imagined, such as Darcy's hunt of Wickham and his eventual confrontation with him in London.

This is my new favorite telling of Darcy's side of Pride and Prejudice, and I can say without a doubt, if it's sold on Amazon I've read it. Ms. Kelley did an outstanding job matching Jane's P&P to her interpretation of Fitzwilliam Darcy and the events of the original story without changing its feel or tone. Not once while reading this story did I think "that doesn't make sense" or "he/she wouldn't do that, or say that." Thank You Ms. Kelley. Please keep writing.

Were I to rate this book based on its story alone, I would give it 4 or 5 stars. It is well thought out and charming, and overall one of the more believable P&P fan fiction novels that I've read. (I've read many, and am a huge fan of P&P rewrites in general.) However, it is clear that a professional editor has not seen the book, as it contains dozens of errors. Some are forgivable because they do not interfere with the story, such as misaligned chapter headings, but there are many sentences with missing words or typos, enough that I got tripped up several times and was unhappily distracted from the otherwise compelling storyline. In the second chapter, the word "settee" has been auto-corrected to be become "settle," -- twice!-- so the lines read, "Mrs. Younge rose from her position on the far settle..." and "He took her hands and led her to the the light blue brocade settle."
Really? Why did no one proof read this otherwise lovely story? I hope they will revise it, as I would like an error-free copy to keep on my shelf alongside other good P&P stories to reread later. It would also be nice if the cover image was printed in a properly high resolution. It is an attractive cover, but the pixelated image does not give the book a professional appearance.

I really can't understand the 5 star reviews of this book, so I think people are just rating Pride and Prejudice instead. This book is just a copy-paste of Pride and Prejudice with a few comments on the side that are supposed to be from Mr. Darcy. Those comments are actually the same ones we all had when we read P&P the first time. There are a few new stories and conversations that are nice to see (between Colonel Fitzwilliam and Darcy or between Bingley and Darcy) but that's it.
I really couldn't find the love and bewitchment Darcy felt when he was around Elizabeth, the story doesn't go beyond the original ending of P&P and there are even some things that do not match with the original P&P.
I liked better 'Mr. Darcy's Diary' by Amanda Grange because you get a better insight of Mr Darcy's point of view and you get a bonus since the book continues a bit after they marry.
