I was dismayed by the house party scene, which was utter chaos in which Mrs. Bennett, Lydia and Kitty have not improved in the slightest and have even become worse. Bingley is portrayed as kind of a doofus who hasn't manned up in all those years, and his sister Caroline is still an evil adversary against Elizabeth, even though Caroline is now married. There are other guests at the party, but they are almost all very strange people. Darcy is trying to reconnect with Lizzy, but it's not easy in a house filled with one spectacle after another. I didn't understand why Mrs. Bennett was being so obnoxious when all her daughters are married off, Lizzy being the only widowed one. The dialogue made almost everyone out to be neurotic, conflicted and unsettled. There are some nice romantic encounters between Elizabeth and Darcy, but even those were full of anxiety and conflict. The atmosphere at Netherfield Park just seemed poisonous to any sort of growing affections.
It was a relief when the action moved on to a different location. Finally the characters started to become more settled and reasonable. Although Lizzy and Darcy still seemed a little neurotic, the surprise encounter at Pemberly is nice with a little villainy thrown in for a distraction. Throughout the book the dialogue was confusing to me in places, conveying some wildly fluctuating feelings and intentions. The editing errors didn't help matters either. There were many missing words and even phrases, and lots of misspellings. However, overall it was a fun read.
Seven years had passed since the disastrous Hunsford proposal. Jane and Bingley had married and so had Elizabeth but she had been widowed.
A confession from his sister, promoted Darcy to accept this years invitation to the Bingley's summer party at Netherfield. Convinced that his feelings for Elizabeth had only been an infatuation, he would be perfectly safe.
We can all imagine how that went... There are forces that conspired against them though and they are somewhat successful in at least, confusing Elizabeth. The battle of wills in her mind was rather funny.
An onslaught of thefts, attacks (and the female side of the Bennet clan), made this a thrilling read. I would advice you to not begin reading this late in the evening as I foolish thought that I would just finish one more chapter... That was not happening and I am writing this review at 2 am.
Fabulous portrait of Elizabeth in this story, her witty remarks was particularly cleverly written.
Heartily recommend this book!
