Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife: Pride and Prejudice Continues (Darcy & Elizabeth #1) by Linda Berdoll
What is it with people today? Everything has to be “sexy” or “sex-filled”? Really?
Not even Jane Austen is safe. I mean look at this cover of Persuasion?!!!!
Why a corset? WHAT DOES THAT HAVE TO DO WITH PERSUASION? Persuasion‘s book cover should look like this:
Not a corset!
And what does that have to do with Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife? I’m getting there. First: I HATED it. I couldn’t finish this book. All it was, was horrible writing:
Here 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.
And sex. That’s it, that is the book.
Jane Austen’s book had great wit, great characters, fun plot, everything you could ever desire in a book. And this book has none of that. Nothing you love about the original novel. Nothing good, or fun, or anything.
I don’t think Jane would be happy with this book at all. I think she would hate it as much as some other recent popular books:
