5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent new Pride and Prejudice alternate story! 25 septembre 2010
Par M&M - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
"Mr. Darcy's Obsession" is Abigail Reynolds' first new book in what seems like way too long. Her other Pride and Prejudice alternate stories are excellent and this one's no exception. After the wait for a new story, I was definitely not disappointed.

In "Obsession," Darcy never has a chance to propose to Elizabeth and leaves Rosings with an aching heart. Nearly a year later he learns that Mr. Bennet has died leaving the family in dire financial straits. Circumstances have forced Jane to marry a local shopkeeper, and Elizabeth is living in London as nanny for her aunt and uncle's children. Now her situation is even more beneath Darcy's than before. What will he do?

Although he knows he should stay away, Darcy can't help himself. At first he tells himself he'll just check on her, but when the opportunity presents itself, he "accidentally" runs into her in the park. During their talks, Elizabeth begins to see another side to Darcy, but of course, many misunderstandings ensue which threaten to separate them forever. In spite of the many opportunities Darcy has to walk away, he looks into those fine eyes and he's lost again.

What I love most about Abigail Reynolds is the way she brings Darcy and Elizabeth to life. After reading one of her books I feel as if I've just stepped back into the world they inhabit and we've had a good chat. The dialogue between them is a delight to read. Elizabeth continues to be witty and down to earth while Darcy is becoming more human as he learns to put the needs of his heart ahead of the approval of his family and society. Ms. Reynolds has also added some interesting, lively new characters to the mix as well as breathing life into some who are mentioned in P&P but never developed. They seem so real that they fit right in.

Clearly, this author has great affection for her characters. In fact, I'd say she's somewhat obsessed with Darcy and Elizabeth - and I'm glad of it. I'll be anxiously awaiting my next opportunity for a visit to Pemberley, and in the meantime, I'll have to satisfy myself with rereading some of Ms. Reynolds' earlier books.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A NEW Pemberly Variation 26 septembre 2010
Par Eee - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Mr Darcy's Obsession is a new Pemberley Variation, previously unpublished.

You've probably already read the synopsis, so I won't bother to repeat much of it here - Elizabeth's father dies, so there is no proposal at Hunsford, no opportunity to meet up again at Pemberley, rather Darcy finds her in London, staying with the Gardiners.

The romance in this book is not explicit. I know that lots of readers want something more explicit, but I think you should give this a try. A touch, a look, descriptions of feelings really point to Reynolds' skill as a writer, and these can be even more arousing than outright descriptions of intimacy. It really is delightful, and appropriate for a wide range of readers.

The characters are wonderfully drawn - obviously Elizabeth and Darcy, but the rest of the characters as well. Some really entertaining and wonderful new additions to the P&P storyline.

It is the case that this particular publisher, Sourcebooks, reissues books with new titles. I don't really see the point, however, of dissing the author in reviews of the book. The author usually has no control over these practices and even little control of what appears on the cover, and the publisher wants to sell as many books as possible. Rather than leaving poor reviews, why don't you just ask the author - most of the Sourcebooks authors are accessible via blogs, have pages at Amazon and so forth.

By the way, this is a NEW publication, however. I hope you enjoy as much as I did.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 + 1/2 stars for trying a new approach. 5 décembre 2010
Par J. Lesley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I was thoroughly enjoying this novel during the first stages because of the interesting approach of changing the Jane Austen version of events to have Mr. Bennet die. Those of us who are familiar with Pride and Prejudice understand what a profound impact that situation would have had on the story line. Here, Mr. Bennet has died and Charlotte and Mr. Collins have taken over Longbourn, Mrs. Bennet and the girls have moved in with her sister in Meryton, Jane has married a tradesman but still lives in Meryton and Lizzie is living with the Gardiner's in their home in Cheapside. Darcy tries to stay away from Lizzie but then discovers that she goes out for a walk early each morning. He contrives to meet her.

This story is presented primarily from the viewpoint of Darcy with only small segments of it from Elizabeth's perspective. Still, I was enjoying the story which gave me an indication of how much Darcy loved Elizabeth and how much he fought against that love, for reasons of family pride and social standing. Then it all began to devolve into a fairy tale with improbable new characters who were allowed to act in completely unrealistic ways for the times. There were evil relatives counterbalanced by worthy and kind and good urchins and servants. Lydia was still her same selfish self but with a problem that Darcy could solve. In fact, Darcy solved every problem for every single person in this story. It's a wonder the poor man didn't find himself on the verge of bankruptcy. He handed out money like it was water. And if Darcy wasn't giving out money then another good relative was sprinkling the fairy dust over situations right and left to make them come out with a perfect Happily Ever After emblazoned with sparkling lights and twittering bluebirds of happiness. There is really nothing wrong with all of this creativity unless you prefer your Austen continuations or adaptations to stick closer to the original, which happens to be the side of the fence I find myself on.

This wasn't a bad story, there were just too many different tales and strings that all had to be wound up into a ball to get the whole thing corralled for an ending. And all of that took too long. And what in the world was that with the way Bingley acted with Jane while her husband was on his deathbed? That was not the action of the kind, sweet, considerate Bingley from Jane Austen. That was a spoiled modern character who just wanted what he wanted and he wanted it right then. Who cares about Jane's reputation? Certainly not Bingley. My final assessment is that there were too many plots, sub-plots, and prominent characters in this story both from high society and low society. And for those of you who like to have this information, the story is completely chaste. There are no scenes of a physical nature between Darcy and Elizabeth except for several kisses. Personally, that is the way I prefer my Pride and Prejudice variations.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Very Disappointing 7 novembre 2010
Par J Gray - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I have bought and very much enjoyed every one of Abigail Reynolds' previous efforts and looked forward to this one. However, I was really disappointed with this effort. Reynolds specializes in clever alternative P & P versions and she excels because she is very good at laying out plots interesting ways - until this book, which just plods along. It's as if she got bogged down somewhere in the process of explaining why Darcy and Bingley would turn against early 19th Century societal and class rules. She repeats herself a lot. Ultimately, this strenuous effort bogged down both the plot and the words. The book needs better editing to tighten things up.

Although Reynolds is also known for spicing up P&P, this book doesn't have any overtly sexual scenes (this was also the case with "From Lambton to Longbourn".) They wouldn't have made any sense since Elizabeth is determined not to become a mistress and Darcy is determined to make her his wife.

Although I'm sorry that I bought "Mr. Darcy's Obsession", I still look forward to Abigail Reynold's next book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very different and very good 18 juin 2011
Par J. Caldwell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
The problem with writing variations on Jane Austin's "Pride and Prejudice" is that authors can be trapped by canon. Very few writers can overcome this trap better than Abigail Reynolds. If you truly love the characters in P&P and not just the plot, buy her books, especially this one. For those of you looking for a "clean" book, don't let the title scare you away. While Reynolds writes honestly about the corruption of morals in London Society, she does so with care. Regency fans, add this to your collection.

With an inarticulate sound, she ran the few steps to him. As his strong arms closed around her, joy welled up from deep within her, and she knew she would never in her life be happier than she was at that moment. &quote;

It is nothing of the sort. I cannot explain why I must be with you, except to say that the sun shines more brightly and the very air tastes sweeter where you are. By your side, I notice and rejoice in marvels of nature that are invisible to me otherwise. You make me wish to be a better man, and you remind me that there is still good in the human soul. When you laugh, I want to laugh as well. When you sing, it fills me with joy and a sense that all is right with the world. I cannot explain how it is that you have bewitched me, but bewitched I am. &quote;
