Format: Kindle Edition
I was first drawn to this story by an interesting premise and positive reviews. After finishing it, I have to assume that the reviewers were already fans of this author and easily pleased. I reserved my opinion when the first several pages of this story could best be summarized as, "Remember Pride and Prejudice? Forget everything you've read, because we're starting over!" No Mr. and Mrs. Bennett, only two Bennett sisters (with dowries), an older brother and heir, a Mr. Darcy who wears his heart on his sleeve, a loving Lady Catherine, etc. I've read good variations that completely disregard the established story; as long as they keep the basic characters and take the new story in an interesting direction, it can work. This story, unfortunately, did neither. The book seemed more like a collection of short stories rather than a novel. Everything felt separated, and all the conflicts were resolved far too easily. Apparently, the answer to every troublesome character is either death or Bedlam. The characters themselves were completely unrecognizable. I don't understand why people bother writing variations if they don't plan on keeping the basic starting point of the original, the character's essential personalities, or both. If you don't want to do that, why not write an original story?

I couldn't even finish this one and that is saying a lot for me and my low standards for these Pride and Prejudice variations. It is poorly written and the plot is not even close to being believable. It seemed an interesting idea (Darcy is instantly smitten with Elizabeth as he has seen her in his dreams) but the execution is severly lacking.

This book was so horribly written, it was painful. The writer needs some lessons before attempting to write other books. And did no one edit the book? I cringed through this book, rolling my eyes so many times! Full stops and commas in the wrong places, too many repetitions, and words used in the wrong context. However, the book created interest throughout, and the story line was not bad. I cannot give more than two stars, due to the terrible way the book was written.

I have read many P&P variations and yes, many do have typos, but I can't believe this one has an editor listed along with the author. As someone who has written articles professionally, I know how easy it is to add in an extra word, or proof your own writing and read in a missing word because you know it should be there. Yes, there are some of those mistakes, which I can overlook, but, I honestly think the author, "editor" and Amazon were in such a hurry to publish this book before the holidays, no one bothered to look at it before listing it for sale.

Paragraphs are jumbled together with various people talking and some have to be read twice before figuring out who is saying what. Sometimes a quotation mark is missing, making it even harder to interpret when the conversations are jumbled together. Anyone ever hear of an enter/return button? A change in chapters can be noted at the end of the last paragraph of the previous chapter or at the beginning of the next chapter. Not as big a deal, but easy to fix with the return/enter button. There is also a change in font size about half way through the story (something I have seen before) which reverts back later.

I cannot believe the author never bothered to look over the book after it was put on line.

REVIEW REVISION:
The author did contact me after I wrote this review, apologized, and said the problem was being corrected. I see in another review, it apparently has been reformatted, so I have revised my review to four stars. I did find the story interesting. It takes the story of Darcy and Elizabeth in a new direction and is a true "what if" instead of just rehash the original. I will definitely read it again.

It was painful to read. The plot is not well developed and the characters are hollow. I honestly cannot finish it.

Having read all but one of this author's books, I must say that this is my least favorite.
The book was very bland and I didn't feel any warmth between the main characters.
The only excitement was briefly with Caroline and a small bit with Wickham.
Other than this, the book was predicable and boring.
Just didn't feel the connection between Lizzy & Darcy.
In much need of some good editing.
Also, the way the book is formatted, it seems that about 1/3 of each page is blank.

In my dreams I see Mr. Darcy. Well this story has Mr Darcy dreaming of his perfect wife...Lizzy Bennett. I enjoyed this story because it did not have Mrs Bennett and her "flutterings" and a neglectful father, oh and Liydia! Lizzy had a great brother who looked out for his sisters. Jane was as always the perfect sister to Lizzy. Darcy's Mother was alive which changed Darcy only in a good way. The love story told was still built through trust, admiration and honesty. Mr Wickham is still a nat and Lord Matlock is as crazy as Miss Bingley. The story kept my interest and was touching. The only thing that I would say confused me was the epilogue. Thomas Darcy mentions one girl who he is interested in and then a few paragraphs later it's another girl and her family. I do think this story is worth the read if you are looking for something different.
