Publisher Comments:

Ten thousand a year and a large estate in Derbyshire! That was all Mrs. Bennet desired to know of Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy before entertaining the hopes that one of her five daughters would attract his attention. In Pride and Prejudice, Jane Austen reveals little of her creation's past or present, banishing him for quite two thirds of her book. But who is Fitzwilliam Darcy? In Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman, Pamela Aidan answers that intriguing question by taking the reader into Darcy's world, a world very different from Elizabeth Bennet's. An Assembly Such As This, the first volume in the Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman trilogy, introduces the reader to Darcy during his visit to Hertfordshire. Chronicling his supervision of his naive friend Charles Bingley and his growing fascination with Elizabeth Bennet, it culminates in the disastrous ball at Netherfield and Darcy's subsequent return to London with the express intention of forgetting Elizabeth. Set vividly against the colourful historical and political background of the time of the Regency, Pamela Aidan writes in a style comfortably at home with Jane Austen but with a wit and humour very much her own. While remaining faithful to the characters and events in Austen's original, Aidan adds her own cast of fascinating characters who populate Darcy's life, weaving a rich tapestry from Darcy's past and present.

I have tried to read several modern books that propose that they are sequels, prequels, Diaries, etc. surrounding the Jane Austen world of Pride and Prejudice. NONE of them were even close to the style, energy, and entertainment of the original.

However, I kept searching because I am a die hard Austen fan. I found this book and I was not overly excited. I excepted the same dull reads as other books I had found of a similar model. Thus, I was happily surprised.

This trilogy follows the Pride and Prejudice plot line except the entire series is from Mr. Darcy's point of view. The language is on par or equal to Jane Austen's original and the humor that Pamela Aidan adds is marvelous.

I would defiantly recommend this trilogy for any Jane Austen fan.
