convince this woman not to write this book So this author states she has fallen in love with PP after watching the Matthew McFayden version This should ve tipped me off immediately She claims that she read the original and watched other adaptations, while this one with Kiera Knightly remained her favorite If she really had read the book, I like to think she would ve knownabout the language, the sexual tension without smut, and that, in the BOOK, Mr Darcy does NOT appear through the fog to ask Elizabeth to wed him I managed to make it through 3 chapters of this book, all the while noticing my increasing nausea It picks up on the wedding night You can only imagine how horrid that was.I think this is glorified fan fic and I was embarrassed when I checked it out from the library And rightfully so I don t know what possessed me.Vile Admittedly, I should have read the foreward of this book and likely would not have bothered to go any further with this one P P sequels can be touchy for Austen fans I m not above reading one, as long as the integrity of both Elizabeth and Mr Darcy are intact Lose Lizzy s quick wit or Darcy s aloofness, and you ve lost the characters Reduce them to nothingthan ridiculous pillow talk and it s blasphemy to all Austen fans, purists or not True character development and plot were nonexis Admittedly, I should have read the foreward of this book and

Lose Lizzy s quick wit or Darcy s aloofness, and you ve lost the characters Reduce them to nothingthan ridiculous pillow talk and it s blasphemy to all Austen fans, purists or not True character development and plot were nonexistent and instead gave way to flowery and sappy declarations of love and love making on just about every page I m not a prude by any stretch of the imagination, but it bordered on Harlequin romance territory Mr Darcy and Elizabeth deserve better than that I was looking for a sequel written by someone who had a greater grasp of Jane Austen s literary contributions, not someone who discovered the significance of this great work via the 2005 movie version and then goes so far as to use one of the quotes from the movie in her book It really rendered the book ridiculous at that point and made me wonder if I was really reading the sexual fantasies of a bored housewife.And I know the author and I will agree to disagree, but if a movie serves as literary inspiration, please accept that Colin Firth is Mr Darcy personified I don t remember the last time I rated a book 1 star but this deserved it if I wasn t reading it for a challenge, I would have dnfed it I was bored to tears because NOTHING happened in this book It was just an account of how happy Darcy Lizzy are, as they maudlin declare their love every 5 minutes and go about their lives at Pemberley To give you an example, I asked some friends to pick 3 numbers so I could extract quotes at random Here s what I found 38%Happy anniversary, my precio I don t remember the last time I rated

love you ardently My wife, lover, companion, mother of my children, my soul, my heart Worse of all, it seems the author wrote this based on the Keira Knightly movie I thought that movie adaptation was OK but if you are going to borrow characters, borrow them from the original source Jane Bingley didn t show up at all and even the love scenes were eye roll inducing nothing original or even sexy If I see this author s name again, I ll run in the opposite direction.ETA I just found out that the series has 5 BOOKS, where their love just GREATER THAN EVER Good grief What I learned from this book in no particular order 1 Titles in Regency England were not confined to the established noble order of Dukes, Marquises, Earls, Viscounts and Barons Masters and Mistresses, as in Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth Darcy, Master and Mistress of Pemberley, are also titles How come Because they are CAPITALIZED.2 In English, certain standalone nouns are always capitalized, such as Housekeeper , Butler , Aunt , Town and Inn Sample usage Mr Darcy took his Butler, What I learned from this book in no particular order 1 Titles in Regency England were not confined to the established noble order of Dukes,

English, certain standalone nouns are always capitalized, such as Housekeeper , Butler , Aunt , Town and Inn Sample usage Mr Darcy took his Butler, Housekeeper and Aunt to the Inn that is closest to Town 3 Intense emotions and surprising plot developments could be most effectively invoked by the liberal use of exclamation marks, especially the double ones Theexclamation marks there are in a paragraph or dialogue, theintensely dramatic it is.4 She was a maiden, of course, but she understood the concept of the mating process She grew up on a working farm after all However, understanding the mechanics of the sexual act in animals is far different than comprehending all the nuances inherent with the activity between people Animal activities, especially those of the sexual kind, just don t have the same nuances as human ones.5 The clinical details of the art of lovemaking were candidly illuminated Every maiden who is about to be married should have a forthright and blunt Aunt to explain the facts of life in the most clinical way possible 6 When you are married, you must have your significant other close to you at all times He she disappearing without notice forthan a few minutes is a legitimate cause for panic You must also offer constant affirmations of your eternal love to your beloved, preferably in a frenzied, highly audible manner An example I need you, my Elizabeth, my precious wife Godpleasedo not ever leave meI cannot liveBeloved Repeat ad nauseam.7 She had discovered that his eye color altered depending on his mood or what he wore One of Mr Darcy s fascinating supernatural abilities.8 His carefully regulated control slipped instantaneously and his groin responded alarmingly Another example of Mr Darcy s amazing abilities.9 Selfpromise is a

second sequel that I ve read to Jane Austen s Pride and Prejudice and I ve loved them both Reading this book is like eating your favourite tub of Baskin Robins ice cream, if you eat it all in one sitting you ll feel ill, it s best to eat over a few sittings Whilst you could read this book in one sitting I am sure it would be sickly sweet.I ve read a few reviews that said it was too sexual, but

Pride and Prejudice, at least watch the Colin Firth Jennifer Ehle version This book has no plot other than to descibe, in detail, every hour of their honeymoon I admit to appreciating the idea of romance, but the endless desciptions of their insatiable amour became nausiating pretty quickly PLUS, a book with so much focus on bosoms cannot posibly be based on Keira Knightly who is in fact concave in her chest area Minor no pun intended point This book is crap This is by far the worst sequel to Pride and Prejudice ever I gave it one star for the author s enthusiastic effort, but it is poorly written was there an editor at all with little plot or character development It is the author s first attempt at publishing, and no surprise here she published it herself SKIPPED loooads of

off that it has the potential to be really, really goodor just plain awful Literary Variations prequels, sequels, and such are books that take the characters of one author and seek to give them new life, new adventures There are several things to consider in general when it comes to fiction of this kind On the one hand, if the author the original author has wrapped up the book the original book neatly with a happily ever after ending, then the new author of this new book has a few choicesthey can either go the route of introducing new conflict, new characters, and climb towards a new climax.or they can forget matters of plot and spend several hundred pages doing nothing in particular hoping that they can mimic the characters and or literary style of the novel so closely that readers won t notice the lack of a plot They ll just love being with these friends again There is another option one that is a frequent choice though it is a boggling one to me use familiar characters written by famous but now dead authors and write erotica After all, the original novels often lacked these bedroom and not so bedroom scenes There is a market apparently for writers and readers to share together that explores these types of scenes and scenarios On the other hand, there are books where the author original author hasn t wrapped everything neatly up The author has chosen to beambiguous, to leave things hanging, to leave questions answered In this case, new authors can write how they envision the characters to continue on and progress were the action to continue off the page.Of what sort is Mr and Mrs Fitzwilliam Darcy The seemingly plotless semi erotic variety Oh, it goes there Mostly In an almost classy, not coarse or vulgar way at times awkward, at other times melodramatic Overuse of exclamation points I say seemingly plotlessit does have a plot But it takes around two hundred pages to get there And once you get there, it is the introduce a villain and in a hurry so there will be an excuse for a sword fight or duel later on so Darcy can play hero variety On the one hand, the presence of this plot keeps it from being plotless altogether And it does add some variety I ve seen plots a hundred times weaker on soap operas every day of the week And I m sure it is about the same sort of plot you d find in other romance novels No better or worse than anything you d find in others works Elizabeth and Darcy The author admits finding inspiration from the 2005 Pride and Prejudice And perhaps that explains it in a small way I have nothing against the movie either that one or any other adaptation but basing a book on a movie that is based on a bookdoesn t make for the strongest characters overall The dialogue It is what makes Austen s work sparkle Perhaps sparkle isn t the best word to use since it tends to associate itself with Twilight now.but I digress What makes this relationship work in the book is intelligent, subtle dialogue with romantic undertones There is tension in the original There is attraction There is chemistry In this sequel, well, it s lacking.Lots of oh s and my s.My beautiful My darling My love My soul My everything My world My precious Oh, darling I love you I love you I love you I love you This couple exists primarily to reassure each other 24 7 that they are madly, deeply, truly in love with each otherandt a good 80% of their conversations revolve around stating just how much in love they are How they complete each other How lucky they are to be together How perfect their lives are now How happy they are How content they are to be in each other s arms All day All night They exist to gaze in each other s eyes And, for other purposes as well, as you can imagine I got to the point where every time Darcy would talk about how beautiful, how flawless, how perfect, how amazing, how glorious, how wonderful, how tremendous Elizabeth was.I just wanted to throw the book across the room While the doting could prove repetitively harmless, there were a few scenes that were just awkward scenes where Darcy and Elizabeth were talking dirty to one another trying to at least These scenes weren t dirty enough to be completely or outrageously filthy or vulgar But much too much to be classy To me, they were just awkward, embarrassing Not every scene Some wereclassy than others None were out and out explicitly graphic in the what goes where sense Well, compared to other smutty books out there where not one iota is left to the reader s imagination And this is no Fanny Hill It istasteful than most But plenty to squirm about if you prefer to read clean books and not introduce such stuff to your imagination In a way, this relationship reminded me of how Bella and Edward are portrayed so sickeningly happy as long as they re together and there to talk about how wonderful the other really is Actually, theI think about it, thethis one reminds me of Breaking Dawn Not that it has super vampire sperm or imprintingbut the weak climax and the hundreds of pages dedicated to sex where nothing much else happens Plenty of people out there love Breaking Dawn and think it s great So I wouldn t be surprised if there are people who think this one is good too What I can say about the book in a positive sensewhile I preferoften than not to stay outside the bedroom doors of my favorite literary couples, many readers get excited about the prospect of Jane Austen sequels Many hope that such books are graphic, that they go above and beyond where the original was allowed to go That they ll be able to be a fly on the wall to watch the hero and heroine be intimate with one another again and again and again And for those readers looking for several hundred pages of Elizabeth and Darcy intimacy, then this will satisfy you I m sure for every reader that objects to such envisioning or re envisioning, there are twothat are happy and pleased with it I will say this much on its behalfit is emphatically and unquestionably a thousand times better than the sequels by Linda Berdoll Chances are you ll agree with me There are at the time of this posting 174 ratings that give that book only 1 star 139 give it 5 stars 37 give it two stars 43 give it three stars 83 give it four stars I hope I ve stated clearly enough that while this one may not appeal to me, it could very well appeal to you To get a better idea of what it has to offer visit the author s blog One other note, it is the first in at least a three volume series perhaps longer So it could be thatplot will be coming Other books in the series may proveinteresting and satisfying.Other perspectives Diary of An Eccentric Armchair Interviews Bookfoolery Ex Libris AustenBlog Savvy Verse and Wit AustenBlog 2nd review some folks think a book of loosely connected sex scenes is a plot who am I to judge them for thinking it is Trust me, I m glad it errs on this side of the line I d much rather have it be closer to classy and completely dignified than explicitly graphic The two are obviously in love And they re married And there is nothing wrong with them taking pleasure with one another In case you re curious my romance tastes are this I don t mind smut and I don t mean smut in a derogatory way Really You ll just have to trust me on that occasionally But I like a balanced approach the hero and heroine fully developed, interesting dialogue that isn t of the drag and drop variety You know the kind where you could replace the names of any two characters and play switcheroo with scenes and insert them into other books without blinking an eye The best kinds of love scenes are where the characters are so thoroughly themselves, so unique that it s all about them and not so much about what they re doing or how they re doing it And the story It should have a story It doesn t have to be a serious story Or a dramatic story It could be lighthearted It could be serious It could be funny It could be touching or tragic It could be a parody It could poke fun at itself or the genre It could be silly The story could revolve around anything a ball, a dance, a party, a vacation or trip, whatever But something needs to be going on outside the sex scenes There are thousands and thousands of romance novels out there And some I ve enjoyed Some I haven t Some I thought weretasteful than others Some suited me Some didn t Some I thought were better written than others But I ve read at least a hundred or so maybethrough the years so it s not like I ve no experience with the genre I own the 2005 movie and the 1995 movie I ve seen both Multiple times I ve probably watched PPthan read it I ve only read it twice I believe in playing nice Some of my readers do like fiction on the clean side I have readers that like things smutty I m not playing favorites or picking sides I try to let my readers know which is which so they can choose for themselves what they want to read I would never criticize anyone for liking things on the smutty side Everyone has a right to pick what they want to read ^EPUB ↽ Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy: Two Shall Become One ⇰ A honeymoon can last a lifetimeA book that addresses
