Biographie de l'auteur

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.

HASH(0x9c679018) étoiles sur 5 Not bad, but struggles at times 20 juillet 2012
Par Theresa Kovich - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
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.

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.

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.

HASH(0x9c679240) étoiles sur 5 Great adaptation 18 mars 2013
Par Jane's Sister - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
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!

HASH(0x9c679450) étoiles sur 5 Struggling beginning, but worth reading! 21 février 2014
Par Rita - Publié sur Amazon.com

Dreams and Expectations is not an easy book to review and it's not easy to say if someone will like this book or not.
P&P purists might think the book goes through a completely different path than the original story and one might say they would not like it, but I usually do not like these kind of books and I did enjoyed Dreams and Expectations after a certain point. Wendi Sotis is able to create a connection between Darcy and Elizabeth that is captivating.

The book starts with Mr. Darcy apologising to Elizabeth about the "tolerable" remark, and they form a friendship from that moment on. After that, the story follows the same path as the original book, but there is also a mystery that follows the story. We end up in the middle of kidnappings, conspiracies, attempts of murder etc. Both Darcy and Elizabeth are involved in it and knowing that both Wickham and Collins are behind everything, try to solve all the mysteries themselves.

I must confess I struggled during the first 20 % of the book and almost gave up because the dialogues and characters do not sound credible. The way they form their friendship is neither natural or believable. For me the author has difficulties in showing how their love might grow, but after you acknowledge they love each other, their relationship becomes quite strong and believable. The author could gain by writing "what if" books starting after the Hunsford proposal, or the Netherfield Ball. Everything before that seems a bit difficult for Wendi Sotis to overcome, in my opinion, of course.

Well, after the reader understands they both love each other, the story becomes interesting, their love is shown as something intense and strong, and it makes us keep reading the book.
I believe the feelings Wendi Sotis is able to create is the best part of the book, the worst part is the path she takes to create those feelings. Again, the beginning is not very good, but after a certain point the book does become quite good. If I were to review only the last 70% of the book, I would have given it a better rating. Overall it's a good book to read.
