This is (almost) the entire text of "Pride and Prejudice" with some sex thrown in here and there.

As if to be purposely distracting, Ms. Pillow's additions are in bold, except when they are not. Many times she adds details to Austen's text without bolding, and in all of those instances it is when she wants to ensure that the reader "caught" Austen's meaning. Clearly, Pillow believes that the average reader is not intelligent enough to understand P&P without the benefit of her powerful insight.

Also, the author eliminates some scenes from P&P altogether. For one example, the scene where Lydia and Mary meet Jane and Elizabeth in Meryton and ride back to Longbourn together -- deleted. Why?? Evidently, Ms. Pillow -- even in her infinite wisdom -- did not recognize the importance of this and other scenes she deemed unnecessary. That particular scene is quite important not only in giving us a better picture of Lydia's character (but I guess Ms. Pillow preferred her bizarre rendition of Lydia), but also because it tells us about what happened between Wickham and Miss King. The author does not understand 'Pride and Prejudice' as much as she thinks she does.

Jane Austen is rolling her eyes in her grave. Her name should be removed from this insult of a novel.

Save your money. Or take your money and buy 'Impulse and Initiative' or 'By Force of Instinct' by Abigail Reynolds instead.

I am disappointed greatly in this book. I thought it would be a guilty pleasure, but instead it was just a few cheap sex scenes thrown into the original P&P. As such, it was slow and the added bits felt disjointed because of a difference in language and characters. The steamy bits were mostly Darcy masturbating or Lydia being wild. Don't waste your money - it's just not worth it. Read Linda Wells if you want a steamy Darcy and Elizabeth story that actually makes sense.

I need to preface this review by saying that I've loved some, liked some, and wished some were better written, but never HATED a Pride and Prejudice knock-off. I HATE this one. I was stupefied as I began reading and said to myself, "This sounds just like Jane Austen!" IT WAS JANE AUSTEN!! Except for some parts, which were badly written nonsense. DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK. I will never buy another book by this author. It must have been an easy way to make money, but even if I'd thought of it, I'd have dismissed it. Michelle, did you need the money so badly?? I wish I could rate the book as a "0" star, or as a minus rating. This is the first review I've ever written, but maybe not the last. Shameful.

Format: Paperback
This book is not a retelling of Pride and Prejudice a la Abigail Reynolds, but the original classic as though Jane Austen had left nothing to the imagination sexually. P&P is my favorite book of all time, but I also love reading steamy historical romances, and this book is a combination of the both. I agree that having the "new" parts of the book typed in bold print was a bit odd, but maybe that was stipulation of using the classic. I don't mind the added wild and wanton parts to the book, but I truly would have wished for more contact thusly between Darcy and Elizabeth. The description of the book on the website makes it sound as though they are together more romantically than is actually added in the book. If you are going to have a steamy book with Darcy and Elizabeth at least let them create the steam. While I'm not necessarily opposed to the book, perhaps it would be best to get a cheap second hand copy. The idea of the book had merit, but it could have been so much better. Sometimes your own imagination is the best.

I'm sad I read this. I suppose the added wild and wanton parts were to be enticing, but the bolded text was distracting and didn't enhance the story in any way. Jane Austen would want her name off this book.

I agree with C. Rich. This is horribly disappointing. I, myself, am not a P&P purist; in fact I love all kinds of P&P AU. But this read almost like somebody simply scribbled some naughty bits between the paragraphs and called it a day. A shame really.

It was a horrible waste of my money and I wouldn't recommend it to anybody.

This book is not worth the title and the hype. I have the orignal Pride and Prejudice book which is included in Pride and Prejudice: The Wild and Woanton Edition. The added "wording" could have been placed separate and sold for maybe $1.00 (No, I take that back-it should have been given to readers FREE!). Total of pages of the so called wanton edition wording might end up being 3-5 sheets. Considering the author's reputation, I thought 'wow, PP is going to be rewritten. Such a major disappointment. Maybe she will view all these book review and correct this book blunder.

I love Pride and Prejudice, sequels, Regency Romances (racy or not) and all things Jane Austen. So i was intrigued by the title and interested in this book. I purchased it at B& N and will now sell it right away for whatever I can get for it, after reading it this weekend.

As other reviewers have pointed out, it is largely Jane Austen's work, with a few scenes removed and a very few new passages in bold, that are supposedly the wild and wanton part. It could have been better written like many other same period P & P books like Pamela Aidan's trilogy. Instead there are only a few sections that are the "racy" part, and they flow so badly that it isn't worth the reading.
