The Confession Of Fitzwilliam Darcy by Mary Street
I found this book to be all it set out to be, a complete account of Mr Darcys view of events in Pride and Prejudice, not too over dramatic and in the same tone as Austen.
Maybe he beats himself up a little more over Elizabeths criticisms than I believe Darcy would really have but we all like to believe we can change a man for the better, with helpful criticism don’t we?
It kept me fully engaged and if you are a Darcy fan you will enjoy this book, even knowing exactly what is going to happen next you want to see how Darcy will handle it and are rooting for him even when you know he is going to win Elizabeths heart in the end.
I particularly liked a Darcy that could see through the Bingley sisters and actually tried to negate some of the damage their bitter tongues could do and they thought that maybe Jane marrying Bingley was possibly going to end up with relatives she would regret, not just the other way around.
All in all a pretty satisfactory book.
