I really didn't want this book to end, as Grange's description of events following P&P were excellent.
Absolutely fascinating. Amanda Grange seems to have really got under Darcy's skin and retells the story, in diary form, with great feeling and sensitivity.
Mr. Darcy's Diary is an enjoyable journey into the mind of one of the most popular characters in literary history . . . a gift to a new generation of Darcy fans and a treat for existing fans as well.
Literature's most eligible bachelor is back! A treat for Pride and Prejudice fans, this tells the story from Mr. Darcy's point of view. Sensitive to the original but lots of fun, this is the tale behind the alpha male.
I love this book. It really served to endear Mr. Darcy to me even further.
"Literature's most eligible bachelor is back! A treat for Pride and Prejudice fans, this tells the story from Mr. Darcy's point of view. Sensitive to the original but lots of fun, this is the tale behind the alpha male."
Any fans of Pride and Prejudice know half of the path that our hero and heroine follow to reach each other, but Grange provides a really intriguing possibility as to what may have been going on in Darcy's head throughout it all. He's not the only one that we get a different perspective of-the personalities of Caroline Bingley, Charles Bingley and Georgiana Darcy are also interesting to see from another's eyes. Mr. Darcy kept much different company from the Bennets, for the most part, so it's almost as though an entirely different story is presented. Much is parallel, but so much is new as well.
"Mr. Darcy's Diary" is a nice addition for all who enjoy Jane Austen's love stories.

As is proper, Grange doesn't attempt the impossible task of competing with the Divine Jane, but tells Darcy's story in her own style, with charm and a gentle wit. While her characters are true to Austen's creations, a couple of surprises lurk, only adding to the reader's pleasure. . . Fortunately, there are plenty of entirely fresh scenes...in which Grange's own humor and warmth shine, making this an amusing and diverting read for Austen fans.

I bought a used book from Sierra Nevada Books in St. Louis and I must say that I'm very satisfied with the appearance of it! I'll attache a picture of (now) my book and I'm grateful for such a successful delivery!
How wrong I was! I was relieved to discover very quickly that Amanda Grange knows her subject, knows how to write in a lighthearted and enjoyable way, and I ended up reading the entire book in one sitting. It’s short enough and light enough to do that – the story moves on with more pace than Austen’s book and Elizabeth features in most of the scenes in it, unlike the original. We get more of an insight into their life after their marriage – how the reconciliation with Lady Catherine takes place, and even an engagement between Colonel Fitzwilliam and Anne De Bourgh.
I have mentioned Pamela Aidan’s three books, also written from Darcy’s perspective. It’s been interesting to read these two works only a few weeks apart as they couldn’t be more different. Aidan’s books are detailed, things move slowly, most of the action is taking place inside Darcy’s head as we follow his thought processes as he falls in love with Elizabeth. Although in this book, written in the form of Darcy’s diary, we do get some of his thoughts these are not particularly detailed. In some ways it read almost childlike – easy sentences, minimal description, fast-paced. But it worked really well for this book and made it a fun read.
The plot device of this being Darcy’s private journal worked reasonably in some ways (it could be written in the first person) but had drawbacks – can anyone seriously imagine a gentleman writing for an hour each evening a diary with verbatim reporting of long conversations? But it was a useful tool upon which to hang the story and worked fairly well.
Probably 95% of the dialogue is lifted directly from Jane Austen’s work but Amanda Grange certainly knows how to write in the style of the period as any other dialogue that she inserted worked really well. This was a seamless work which fitted in well and was true to the original.
Finally, it has to be said it was a relief to read a book written by an Englishwoman which was therefore bereft of the so-common American mistakes. Such a delight to read a book without a single “gotten”, “fall” (for autumn) and “inquire”. Very picky of me, but I think some of the other books I’ve read have shown a lack of decent editing and research.
I certainly recommend this book. I understand Amanda Grange has written at least nine other books. I shall be on the lookout for them now.
An enjoyable easy read - probably only fun if you know and like "P&P"
Meine Meinung: sehr empfehlenswert - lesen!!!
