Kurzbeschreibung

While staying true to the characters of Jane Austen's much loved tale, this novel takes Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy on a much different journey than Austen did in Pride and Prejudice.

Fitzwilliam Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet quickly recognize their feelings for each other and form a friendship, but misunderstandings and a bit of mystery and adventure hinder their path to happiness.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Wendi is a graduate of Nassau Community College and Adelphi University, and holds a degree in Psychology. She decided to stay at home when her triplets were born. Having always been an avid reader and adoring fan of Jane Austen, when the triplets were old enough that she was able to find a little time to herself, Wendi searched the internet and discovered a treasure trove of “fan fiction” written by fellow Janeites. At first, experiencing Austen’s stories from several different characters’ points of view caught her interest, but then she branched off into reading sequels, “what if” stories, and even modernized versions of Austen’s tales. Though she had always aspired to become a writer, it was not until Wendi awakened from a dream and realized that the story could become a terrific tale that she made a serious attempt. In the midst of penning a number of short stories, in 2010, she posted her first draft of a novel-length Dreams & Expectations to several online forums. Wendi then went on to write another novel-length story, Promises, published in 2011. Wendi continues to live on Long Island with her husband of twenty-three years, her son, and two daughters.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Not bad, but struggles at times 20. Juli 2012
Von Theresa Kovich - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
As a devoted fan of Pride and Prejudice variations and sequels, I found this novel to be entertaining and worth reading. However, although the premise is unique and several interesting characters are introduced, by the time I was 70% done with the book, I was ready for it to be over. The main problem I had with this book is that it kept repeating the same scenes over and over. First we'd "see" the original scene/event, then we'd hear one or two characters repeat the details of the scene/event to other characters. I found myself skimming the book to bypass those repetitious scenes. Also, there is an interesting Charlotte/Colonel Fitzwilliam side story that is not well-developed. Overall, a good read, but it will require a patient reader.

1.0 von 5 Sternen ICKY 4. Mai 2013
Von thatrater - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Top half dozen icky quotes from Dreams and Expectations:

"[Mr. Collins'} beady eyes examined every feature of the girls' figures minutely as well, returning several times to the two eldest, which induced a distinct feeling in both of being soiled by his gaze."

"[Mr. Collins} was only half concealing what his hands were holding. He dropped one of Elizabeth's undergarments back into the drawer and closed it."

"Mr. Collins moved uncomfortably close to Elizabeth. She tensed and felt a need to move away, but Mr. Collins took hold of her arm in an almost possessive way, preventing her escape. Mr. Wickham unnerved Elizabeth with his leers at her person which, though not quite as obvious as Mr. Collins's had been, were even more disturbing in their intensity. As the two men spoke, Mr. Wickham moved closer until she was trapped between them; she could not move without her body brushing against one or the other. The entire situation was alarming. She tried to back away from the pair, but every time she moved to do so they adjusted their positions, and one or the other would graze against her."

[Lady Catherine],"Ruin [Elizabeth] in every way possible, Wickham!"

"Elizabeth sat on the floor.... Dried blood smeared her bruised face, and someone had stuffed a filthy rag into her mouth as a gag. Her dress was torn, revealing flashes of pale, silken flesh. [Wickham] towered over her, swigging from a liquor bottle held in a blood-stained hand. His free hand gripped her bound wrists."

"[Wickham's] hand wandered licentiously over Elizabeth's figure."

Of all the P&P spinoffs I have bought, this is the only one I regret having read. Actually, the distaste I feel about it goes beyond wanting my money back. I hope to spare somebody else the experience.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Netherfield Ball that you will never forget 12. Juli 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I have read through this book twice - and both times the Netherfield ball brought me to tears!

Throughout the book I alternated between tears and smiles. Mr Darcy's dream touched my heart and as always I was warmed by the conclusion! As with the original Pride and Prejudice, I was happy to finish the book knowing my favourite characters were safely as expected.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great adaptation 18. März 2013
Von Jane's Sister - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This was one of the most imaginative versions I have read. The Author stayed within the mainframe of the story and fleshed out some of the minor characters which gave greater depth to the action and relationships.

The Darcy/Elizabeth relationship was almost painful to experience as it developed, due to the element of suspense which exists when two people in love with each other are not sure of the other one's feelings.

Wickham, Collins, and Lady Catherine were particularly awful people - I felt they deserved everything that they had coming. Miss Bingley also met with her just desserts. It was a most satisfying read!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Sweet Romance - A Great Summer Read 1. Juli 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The early chapters of Dreams and Expectations detail the death of Darcy's mother and her final requests to him - that he would take care of Georgiana and their father, and that he would marry well. The first request poses no problem, but on the second request rests the plot of the story. Darcy must determine what that requests means. What does it mean to "marry well"?

He cannot follow his heart until he understand the heart of his mother.

Dreams and Expectations is another lovely, satisfying story from a wonderful writer.
