Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

is a captivating novel of love, pride, passion, and, of course, prejudice. Off-stage events barely mentioned in Jane Austen's ?are revealed, and many surprising new facts come to light, such as Mr. Darcy's proposal of marriage to another young woman. Mr. Darcy writes of his daily life as a society gentleman in Georgian London and of his dangerous friendship with Lord Byron, and he tells the full story of his sister's infatuation with the dastardly Wickham. Most importantly, he describes how he gradually falls in love with Elizabeth Bennet, and, in the process, painfully gains self-knowledge.

Literature's most famous romantic hero opens his diary: it's intimate, dramatic, deeply passionate, and sometimes downright shocking.

Cathy from Olympia, Washington, December 20, 2009 (view all comments by Cathy from Olympia, Washington)
Slater's Darcy is no namby-pamby-- he boxes, fences, and on occasion "beds" servants or other women (note that none of these events are sensationalized-- they only merit brief mentions in his diary). On occasion, as with real-life diaries, the entries can be a bit dry, (and extremely brief!) but this also makes the novel read more like a true account instead of a novel. Certainly not in the league of Pride and Prejudice, but a solid effort worth reading for the "story behind the story," or "what makes Darcy tick."
