2.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing, November 7, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mr. Darcy's Obsession (A Pride and Prejudice Variation) (Paperback)
I have bought and very much enjoyed every one of Abigail Reynolds' previous efforts and looked forward to this one. However, I was really disappointed with this effort. Reynolds specializes in clever alternative P & P versions and she excels because she is very good at laying out plots interesting ways - until this book, which just plods along. It's as if she got bogged down somewhere in the process of explaining why Darcy and Bingley would turn against early 19th Century societal and class rules. She repeats herself a lot. Ultimately, this strenuous effort bogged down both the plot and the words. The book needs better editing to tighten things up.

Although Reynolds is also known for spicing up P&P, this book doesn't have any overtly sexual scenes (this was also the case with "From Lambton to Longbourn".) They wouldn't have made any sense since Elizabeth is determined not to become a mistress and Darcy is determined to make her his wife.

Although I'm sorry that I bought "Mr. Darcy's Obsession", I still look forward to Abigail Reynold's next book.
