Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife: Pride and Prejudice Continues

Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife: Pride and Prejudice Continues (Darcy & Elizabeth #1) by Linda Berdoll

This book was not for me.

Ugh…

I couldn’t even finish it. It had horrible writing. Here is a random line from the book:

For it was only a few days more than a week later when Elizabeth’s rewarding afternoon amidst the conservatory directing the repotting of a particularly healthy growth of aspidistra came to a disharmonious end.

Huh?

And the rest was just sex.

Now I know some people read a book primarily for the sex scenes, I’m not judging you or saying anything about the content you like. I’m saying sexy scenes are not my cup of tea, and if the story was well written and interesting; I could have easily skipped over those parts and been invested in the story. However, that was not the case as almost every sentence gave me a headache.

Ugh.

Jane Austen’s book had great wit, great characters, a fun plot; everything you could ever desire in a book. And this book does not.
