This is a story in which more than Mr. Collins seem to be bumbling oafs. But I must say the one incident that draw my skepticism is the first one in which SOMEHOW Elizabeth ties Mr. Darcy’s hands behind him and he is left in a rowboat drifting onto a lake. I can’t accept that big strong Darcy is overpowered by Elizabeth and the author does not explain that he allowed it.
Yes, Georgiana is our emcee to the goings-on at Rosings where she has showed up unexpectedly due to worries about her brother’s present problem, which she has narrowed down in her mind to be of the female variety. So she consults with her cousin, the Colonel, and demands that they work to solve this situation.
As another reviewer states there is one “accident” after another and they are not all innocent in appearance…yes, some viewing the slips and falls can’t dismiss them and have to paint the worst interpretation of what they saw in letters or in gossiping with acquaintances. Soon Meryton has Darcy labeled as a rake while London society has Elizabeth being the worst of seductresses.
Oh, Darcy has put forth his proposal and we know how well that went over, but now time after time he continues to offer to make things right.
Lady Catherine’s birds on the loose is truly a hoot to read…and Mr. Collins trying to untangle one of the birds from her “hair”. My, oh, my!
Elizabeth just can’t see that there is any need to worry about reputations…but then her father gets wind of the tattling tongues. Will he need to force a move or does Elizabeth come to realize that her feelings might have changed? This is a lovely short story told with amusing scenes.
I bought this book based on the reviews and was expecting to have a few laughs, every reviewer comments on it. I was expecting Elizabeth's stubbornly rejection of Darcy's proposal. However, this Elizabeth is constantly rejecting Darcy's marriage proposal, even when he had stopped offering, even when gossip got out of hand. Then, she has a change of heart in a seconds, after a simple thought, a simple reasoning, and a comparison between the feelings felt whe Mr. Collins propose and the feelings when Darcy did, and boom! she is suddenly in love!!!
This is a story of continued series of mishaps that take place everytime Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth are together. There are too many of these little accidents in the story to make it tiresome for me. Even Mr. Darcy feels that way as says it to Elizabeth himself at some point in the book.
"Darcy, between guffaws, said, “I fear no one would believe such stories of what all has occurred if they were not with us this last week, Miss Elizabeth.”"
I agree with other reviewers about the pricing of this book, however we make the consious decision to buy it at that price, it is just the dissapointment on the expectation for a better story that makes me feel a bit cheated on it.
