Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy, The Last Man In The World
by Abigail Reynolds
This is the what if? Pride and Prejudice
Both the main characters were totally annoying and Georgina was not very likable at all. I am sure Elizabeth Bennet could not have spent so long being biddable and suffering in silence.
Having said that it was still entertaining and I did need to keep turning those pages to see just how far the misunderstandings could go and to keep an audience gripped when basically you are retelling such a famous story is a feat.
At least it is not totally surprising that both the lead characters admit to contemplating suicide. If I may say so quite understandable.
Abigail Reynolds has written quite a few of these what if tales, I shall be very interested to see how the others pan out.
