Kurzbeschreibung

One of the great "what-ifs" among Pride & Prejudice aficionados is:
if Mr. Collins married Mary Bennet instead of Charlotte Lucas, how would that influence Mr. Darcy's dogged pursuit of the elusive Elizabeth?

In this breezy and hilarious re-telling of Jane Austin's classic novel, the author explores what would have changed -- and what would have not -- had two of literature's most self-righteous characters found their way together. Elizabeth Bennet goes to Kent with her sister Jane, and the fur flies! A wonderful, mad-cap romp!

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Jack Caldwell is an author, amateur historian, professional economic developer, playwright, and like many Cajuns, a darn good cook. Born and raised in the Bayou County of Louisiana, Jack and his wife, Barbara, are Hurricane Katrina victims who now make Florida their home. His nickname -- The Cajun Cheesehead -- came from his devotion to his two favorite NFL teams: the New Orleans Saints and the Green Bay Packers. When not writing or traveling with Barbara, Jack attempts to play golf. A devout convert to Roman Catholicism, Jack is married with three grown sons. Jack's blog postings -- The Cajun Cheesehead Chronicles -- appear regularly at Austen Authors.

I like to read variations, but about one third of this book is either a copy from the original or from the movie. So it is possible to skip whole pages without missing out on the story. It's not a pleasure to read whole passages you already know. And it doesn't make a lot of difference if it is Mary or Charlotte who marries Mr. Collins or if Jane accompanies Lizzie on her visit. There are some new passages but so far (and I'm about half through with it) not enough to justify a new novel. For me it was a waste of money.

I really liked this "what if" variation. The changes in the story feel natural. It would have worked without Elizabeht telling Darcy that she would be his if he managed to save Lydia however. This forwardness on her side just doesn't fit the image I have of Elizabeth. The language was very much Austen so I enjoyed that, too.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Different yet familiar 18. Januar 2014
Von tachi1 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
The usual route is followed towards the eventual happiness of the Darcys and Bingleys but with some variations which I had not seen before and which, surprisingly, work out quite well and, even more surprisingly, don't contrast unfavorably with the original.

The first change is that it is Mary, not Charlotte, who marries Mr. Collins and that she turns out to be rather likeable and intelligent. Another change is that Miss DeBourgh is not the ridiculously insignificant personage that is usually portrayed. But my favorite is that Jane accompanies Lizzy to both Hunsford and the trip with the Gardiners. This made the plot a lot more tightly-woven as is provided Jane's direct involvement in events that happened at both settings. Jane's character, while still sweet and a bit naive, has somewhat more backbone and resolution than her Austen portrayal. Therefore the resolution of her problems with Mr. Bingley is somewhat different. Jane's presence also influences/affects Lizzy's actions and reactions.

On the whole, it is a very enjoyable read and the type of book that, when you reach the end, you wish it had been longer.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Austen Prose with a Twist 17. Januar 2014
Von Lizzy Rose - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
"The Companion of His Future Life."

Okay, I have read over 80+ P&P Fan fiction books and I have 3 favorites "Fitzwilliam Darcy, an Honorable Man" , Mr. Darcy's forbidden Love, both by Brenda Webb and "One Thread Pulled" by Diana John Oaks, I will now add "The companion of His Future Life" to that list. Jack, no offense here, but I never thought a man could do justice to Darcy and Lizzy, I humbly apologize.

You make Wm. Collins so annoyingly Mr. Collins that I wanted to choke him! To think his arrogance has gotten to the point where he wants to decide who Lizzy marries, this is pure jealousy.
Mary finally finds her spunk and guts. In the "what if" she marries Mr. Collins and that's where her spunk and guts come from. Mary's knowledge of scripture and her love of Mr. Fordyce I always felt she would be the perfect wife for him.

My favorite is Anne de Bourgh, I have always felt that her illnesses were based on her mother's constant nagging. How does one handle an annoying mama, pretend your sick, you can leave her presence easier. I have always liked it when a Fan Fiction writer developed Anne's character and you developed Anne beautifully; and because of that I can see her now as pretty, rather than "sickly and Pale."

Jane and Lizzy in Hunsford? Colonel Fitzwilliam blowing it by telling Lizzy, in front of Jane, Darcy's great achievement with his friend. In an attempt to apologize he writes each sister a letter and our shy, all loving Jane says ".......I can not accept this letter......If you have anything you wish to tell me, I am at leisure to hear it......" I love this Jane a lot better, thanks Jack.

Bingly finding himself growing as a man without Darcy's help, now there's surprise.

I could go on but then I would be spoiling it for others and I hate doing that.

I just love this book - I quite like the spin Jack Caldwell put in the Austen story, while keeping it close to her heart. He changed it up, but stayed true to the characters, and in some instances you made them better. (Sorry Jane)

This is a really good book Jack, and I loved it. Ladies and Gentlemen go get this book you won't regret it.

Elizabeth Cohen. Fan Fiction enthusiast and writer. -- feeling excited.

Remember all of you who choose not to be so nice in your reviews, this is called FAN FICTION for a reason.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Mary Bennet is a joy! 20. Januar 2014
Von J. Field - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I enjoyed "The Companion Of His Future Life" very much! Mr Collins marries Mary Bennet instead of Charlotte Lucas, but this is NOT the Mary Bennet we know. This Mary is capable of persuading Mr Collins to behave in a proper manner. I liked that Elizabeth and Jane both went to Hunsford and Derbyshire, Jane being aware of what passed with Mr Bingley and the information about Mr Wickham's behaviour. The one thing I did not really enjoy as much was the reapplying of lines to characters who did not have them in the original novel. It worked well in "Mr Darcy Comes To Dinner", may be because that was intended to be farcical, but for me it detracted a little from the enjoyment of the novel. I want to hear more of Mr Caldwell's voice instead of Jane Austen's.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A Fun Read! 25. Januar 2014
Von Karen C Groves - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I have Mr. Caldwell's other books and have enjoyed them, especially Mr. Darcy Came to Dinner. I enjoyed this one as well. I laughed through most of it (the little side comments especially) and even shed a few tears.

Especially enjoyable was the development of Jane's, Mary's and Anne's characters.

It would have gotten 5 stars but for the objection raised by other reviewers: too much of Jane Austen's material word for word. A number of authors have seen fit to do the same, but it is not appreciated. A small amount copied is not a problem, but when large sections are verbatim, it is too much. Variations are supposed to be original writings, at least they should be. Most of the handling of the plot was original, but when I hit the verbatim sections, I feel like I'm reading Austen's Pride and Prejudice. That's not why I bought the book.

I still look forward to Mr. Caldwell's next book.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Quite good; but seemed lazy 22. Januar 2014
Von Grammar Warden 73 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I have three of Mr Caldwell's books - The Three Colonels, Pemberley Ranch and Mr Darcy Came to Dinner - and like the first two and love the third. Therefore, I was very excited when this book came up in my Kindle Recommendations. However, I found that there was too much taken verbatim from Austen and could only get through the book by skipping through to find anything original.

6th March 2014: Since my original review of 21st January 2014, I have given this book another chance - because of Mr Caldwell's other books - and found more to enjoy in it this time. I especially liked how Mary and Jane developed into more rounded personalities without changing their core essentials. So I have increased my rating from 2 stars to 3.
