Quite an enjoyable easy read with a few believable things thrown in for Darcy's time away from the bennets such as a brief ilness of his sister.

I enjoyed the book so much. It is full of passion and written in a very emotional way. So I loved to read it within a day. I think Mary Street wrote that story the way Jane Austen would have done!

Now the book is on its way to Switzerland. Enjoy it, wuermli...

This was in my mailbox today - more P&P, yay!! :-D I have several bookrings in the house at the moment (too many! but what else is new, right?) so it may take me a little longer than it should to get to this. But I'm eager to read it and will do so as soon as I can. Thank you ktwalker for sharing and wuermli for sending the book to me!! :-)

I started reading this book today, have read about 90 pages so far. It's a very quick & easy read, and very enjoyable. Not the best P&P sequel I've read, but definitely worth reading.

I'll journal again when I've finished the book. Should be soon. :-) 


Journal Entry 11 by LeishaCamden from Alna bydel, Oslo fylke Norway on Thursday, November 15, 2007

9 out of 10

I’ve read the book, November 11th through 13th. It was a very enjoyable read. Much better than ‘Darcy’s Story’, the first book in this spiral. What I didn’t like about that book was that it added so little to what we all already know from the original novel; it seemed almost a little pointless to read it at all. This book however, while also staying extremely faithful to the story, does add the very thing that the ‘real’ book lacks – insight into Darcy’s feelings, thoughts and opinions. These are very credibly described in this book. Not much have been added to the story in terms of events, certainly not of characters ... and all the original characters are very correctly described ... the story has really been ‘fleshed out’ almost only in those scenes which are referred to but not described in P&P. Street is a gifted writer who has been able to make the most of her retelling, without adding anything that purists might feel ruined or ‘offended’ the story. A couple things detract from the overall quality of the book – mainly that the language is a little repetitive at times, in ways that make me think it’s primarily bad editing. It also annoyed me that the word will (as in ‘last will and testament’) is consistently spelled with a capital W. What for?? Future British readers of this book: is that normal?? :-)

And of course, like almost every modern-day writer trying to recreate 18th- and 19th-century literature, Street uses nowhere near enough commas. ;-)

Reading this book gave me some interesting new thoughts on P&P. Primarily regarding Darcy’s character, but also Elizabeth and, unexpectedly, Mrs Bennet. Darcy’s insight into his prospective mother-in-law’s personality and her affection for her daughters was quite moving to me and something I hadn’t considered before. I loved the descriptions of Darcy with the Gardiners. I’m very happy that I got to read this book, it was a very worthwhile read which I’d recommend to any P&P fan. :-) Pretty well written; convincing and touching. Thank you for sharing, ktwalker!! I’ll PM wandering-B to confirm her address and get the book out on the road again.

The blurb:

'In Fitzwilliam Darcy, Jane Austen created the most intriguing hero of all time. Yet Pride and Prejudice is Elizabeth Bennet's story, which reveals little of Darcy’s innermost thoughts. Now, in The Confession of Fitzwilliam Darcy, the reader is privy to the torment sufferered [sic] by Darcy who, conscious of his superior position, is nevertheless drawn irresistibly to the delightful Elizabeth.

Darcy tells us of his relationship with his sister Georgiana, his cousin Fitzwilliam, and the dastardly Wickham. Revealed, too, is the background to Darcy's persuasion of and subsequent confession to Bingley, and what happened when he received a visit from his formidable aunt, Lady Catherine de Bourgh. All his encounters with Elizabeth are seen through his eyes and, in the aftermath of his disastrous proposal, we learn how his pride and arrogance are tempered by his unquenchable love for her.

For all those to whom Pride and Prejudice is the romantic novel, Mary Street's remarkable and convincing telling of Darcy's story will prove irresistible.

Mary Street was born in Heanor, Derbyshire. Her interest in writing began whilst in hospital following a road traffic accident. She has written several romance and suspense novels, all of which have been published by Robert Hale.

Praise for Mary Street

'Jane Austen would have been intrigued that another writer could present her characters so convincingly.'

Like the rest, I enjoyed this P&P sequel. Mary Street gives us more insight into Darcy's feelings, his history, and perhaps why he is such a stuffed shirt in the beginning of P&P. Of course, if he were not, there would not be a book, now would there? We are also give some positive insight into Mrs. Bennet's character, which I had not credited her with previously. Enjoyable read and will be requesting address and passing along.

Thanks for sending!

Enjoying this much more than the previous P&P sequel. It seems to capture Austen's voice better and is more than just snippets of Mr Darcy's parts in the original. You also get a peek into the dramatic turnaround in Darcy's character.

Will be sending off to Elizardbreath.

Edited to add: Sent 3/20/08.

I received this today. I am heartened to find out that most readers found this book better than Darcy's Story. I was so irritated with Darcy's Story as it just seemed to copy and paste most of P&P. I have 2 books ahead of this one so might be a couple of weeks...but I will PM the next in line now so I can get it back out ASAP.

4/13: No response from becbec202. Will PM again, as well as next after her---just in case.

What a wonderful book! The story was humorous and just such a great look into Darcy's side. I was so relieved to find that the story followed the P&P story line without quoting Austen word for word at every turn It was an original story and a wonderful sequel to P&P! I will be adding it to my wishlist for my permanent collection.

I have PM'd the next two in line but have heard nothing yet.

OOps, I see that I forgot to journal this before I sent it on. I did enjoy this book and it was interesting reading the famed story from Darcy's point of view.
I would prefer, however to read sequels & continuations of P&P, not a rehashing of the story.

Thanks for sharing it with me!

It has been hard for me to finish this for some reason. It languishes on a table while I spend all my hours in the garden playing in the flowers. I enjoy it whenever I find the time to sit and read a few chapters, but it just doesn't beckon me from the table.

I am glad I had a chance to read Mr. Darcy's side of things. I must say Mary Street does a remarkable job writing in Jane Austen's style. I am mailing this back to the UK this afternoon. Thank you again for letting me read it.

Easy read. All the overlaps with the original were well tied in. It was a pleasure to be reminded of those well-repeated Austen phrases. But it did not remind me of my Mr. Darcy; he had more oomph, more Joe Morelli (if you know what I mean!) But, I was very glad to have the chance to forget our miserable November while I languished in Longourn. I feel a session with Colin Firth coming on....

I really enjoyed this book, despite one or two modern turns of phrase which crept in and jarred a bit. I'm glad that the author didn't invent scenes which moved outside the original framework but stuck to interpreting the other side of what Austen had already written. Thanks for giving me the chance to read it, I'll think about what to do with it next.

I had really much fun reading this book. So it's nothing very new in it, it's still nice. And some parts are so funny, e.g. the description of Mr. Hurst
"His wife largely ignored him: we all did. I had once thought we seemed to carry him around with us like a piece of unwanted baggage."
or the letter of Colonel Fitzwilliam at the end.
Thanks so much for sharing it.

Edit: it's still on several wishlists so I think I'll find a new reader soon

This really was an easy read. Since I had read Pamela Aidan's Darcy-trilogy recently I couldn't help comparing the stories.

I liked it that Mary Street sticks to the original and doesn't make up new plots. Still she doesn't repeat Austen all the time - I think she found a good balance there. But sometimes I thought the story rushed on too quickly - and there could have been less indirect speech.

Anyway, I enjoyed this one. Thanks for sharing!

Despite it's appearance, it's not a long book (a few more than 200 pages, I just checked:) so I shall not take long now.

That's the best P&P-spin-off I've read!
It doesn't add much new plot but very cleverly overlaps every couple of pages or so with the familiar scenes (from the BBC episode drama rather than from the book?)
One of the best scenes: when Darcy became sick because he believed Lizzy to be married to Mr. Collins!
Several other of Darcy's musings were also very enlightening, e.g. why there are five(!) daughters...
I'll definitively get a copy for myself, together with another P&P-loving friend watch the BBC episodes again, and then lend it to her so that she can have the same pleasure (almost the same, as I will NOT lend her my boyfriend who actually read the whole second half of the book to me:)

The book's now ready to travel on to DA-Cameron.

The book arrived today. Unfortunately, I have to finish 500+ pages of another book before I can start with this one...

17. 3. 2010:
Yes, I did enjoy the book! :-) It is quite different from the "Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman" trilogy, but more convincing.

Let me borrow a sentence or two from leishaCamden's JE (#11):
Reading this book gave me some interesting new thoughts on P&P. Primarily regarding Darcy’s character, but also Elizabeth and, unexpectedly, Mrs Bennet. Darcy’s insight into his prospective mother-in-law’s personality and her affection for her daughters was quite moving to me and something I hadn’t considered before.

I'll try to get hold of another copy; "The confession of Fitzwilliam Darcy" is definitely a book worth to be read more than once.

I enjoyed reading this book a lot. It is the best sequel I read so far. There are no new stories added, it contains no boring parts and you get to know Darcy much better. I do not find the passage again, but in the original Darcy said something I never quite understood, and with reading this book it became clear.
Thank you for this bookray!

I finished this a week or so ago. I waited with my JE to let it sink because I wanted to see what the style meant to me in the long run.
So...when I first read people's opinion on this, I was almost sure I'd order the book for myself after I had read it.
Turns out I won't.
I did like it, in many respects it was a good read. But still, there were many things I found rather tiresome. Mary Street, albeit not bad at all, is no Jane Austen and most of the time it did feel a bit repetitious both in its repeating of sentences from P&P and most strikingly in its style.
What I liked was that it was not full of sub-plots entirely out of character for Darcy just so pages were filled up. I dislike other fanfiction for this. This was well done in that respect.

As I said, I liked it but I'm not so much engrossed by it to want my own copy.
