Avant d'acheter ce livre assurez-vous de ne pas avoir déjà acheté ou lu son jumeau qui a été publié sous un autre nom, il s'agit de "Something like regret" soit deux titres différents pour le même livre.Je tiens à le préciser car c'est toujours désagréable d'avoir l'impression de s'être fait avoir par défaut d'information dans le descriptif d'un livre avant l'achat.
Ceci étant dit c'est un excellent livre et un très bon auteur, j'ai passé un trés agréable moment avec ce
bon "what if" tout en sensibilité et que je recommande, mais à vous de choisir entre
"Only Mr Darcy will Do" ou "Something like regret" Car c'est le même livre avec un titre et une couverture différente.

A book you won't regret 21 février 2011
Par M&M - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book was originally published as "Something Like Regret". Recently some publishers who have picked up previously self-published "Pride and Prejudice" related books have been reissuing them with different titles. I'm sure it's not to intentionally trick readers but to attract more interest. Everyone knows who Darcy is and by somehow including his name in the title they hope to catch the attention of more potential readers. Unfortunately, in most cases, the author's original title is better as is the case with this book. To me the new title seems to imply that Elizabeth Bennet is pining away for Darcy and won't marry anyone else. I think a better title for this one would be "Only Elizabeth Bennet Will Do" because it is Darcy who finds and subtly pursues her rather than the other way around. Enough said about titles. I'm just happy this book has been picked up by a publisher who had the good sense to see how wonderful it really is.
In this variation on the original, Mr. Bennet dies leaving the family in difficult circumstances. Elizabeth finds employment with a nice family as a governess. When Darcy finally learns about her reduced circumstances, he is very curious and concerned about her well-being. In spite of the difficult way they parted, he still carries a torch for her. Darcy is able to discover where Elizabeth works and fortunately has a passing acquaintance with the family who employs her. He arranges a visit to a gathering at their home and as soon as he sees Elizabeth, he knows his heart is lost again. When he invites Elizabeth's employer to Pemberley for a visit, he hopes she will travel with them, and he'll have an opportunity to find out if there is any chance that she now has a more favorable opinion of him.
When Elizabeth first sees Darcy again, she is embarrassed. Remember, she hasn't seen him since the day of the disastrous proposal. She's had no chance to talk with him after reading the letter he wrote explaining Wickham's true nature. After the some of the embarrassment wears off, she is curious and begins to admit her attraction to him. By watching Darcy in an environment in which he is comfortable, she discovers he is a very different man than the one she thought she knew. She begins to see him as a kind and loving brother, a concerned and involved landowner, and a man with real feelings behind the mask he wears to keep people at a distance. Is it too late for them?
Some P&P alternative stories create a Darcy that says and does things that I don't find believable but that's not the case in "Only Mr. Darcy Will Do". If you love Darcy and Elizabeth's story, I don't think you'll regret reading this one.

Her Best Book Yet 15 février 2011
Par Shopper - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I read this when it was titled 'Something Like Regret'. FYI, they are the same book. This one may be edited slightly differently, but the story is wonderful.(There are no graphic scenes.) The writing is mature and poetic, the circumstances and situations are (mostly) believable, as are the characters.

I really liked getting to know one of the society women who's in love with Darcy - it was an interesting perspective. Seeing details of Elizabeth's life as a governess also added to the story. I particularly loved the chess scene with Darcy's cousin - he was a fun additional character. There were a few places where it was a bit contrived, especially toward the end, but it was still extremely enjoyable and very difficult to put down.

To me, this is one of the BEST variations out there. This is one I won't be re-selling!

Great Variation, highly recommend 15 février 2011
Par B. W. Carlson - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Kara Louise has written several Pride and Prejudice variations, which, rather than continuing Dary and Elizabeth's story, takes it in another direction. This is one of my favorites.

I read this one when it was titled Something Like Regret, and loved it.

Unlike many of the Austen variations, this one is free of sordid sex scenes and is a wonderful take on what Elizabeth Bennet's life might have been like had she never encountered Mr. Darcy at Pemberley after his first proposal. In this story, Darcy and Elizabeth have to wait longer and suffer more before getting their second chance. It is both heart-breaking and inspiring.

I have recommended this and other Louise variations to my students who love Pride and Prejudice. I think it is a worthwhile purchase for anyone enamoured of what I consider literature's greatest love story.

Austen Sequels: A blissfully romantic tale of Darcy and Lizzy 23 février 2011
Par L. Obstgarten - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Let me preface this review by saying this: I love Pride and Prejudice What-If's. I have ever since I read Abigail Reynolds' Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy: The Last Man in the World. I can't help loving the idea of what would happen if Jane Austen's plot was changed. We all know that Lizzy and Darcy will end up together no matter what, but if their journey to matrimony is changed, how will everything work out?

Kara Louise's new(ish) book, Only Mr. Darcy Will Do (This book was originally self published as Something Like Regret) takes the reader on Elizabeth Bennet's journey towards a life with Mr. Darcy when all hope seems to be gone.

This where Louise's plot deviates: Mr. Bennet dies in the spring, so Elizabeth's trip to the north with the Gardiners is cancelled and Lydia is brought home from Brighton before anything indecorous happens with Wickham. Mrs. Bennet and the three youngest move in with Mr. and Mrs. Phillips, Mrs. Bennet's sister. Jane Bennet moves in with the Gardiners to serve as their governess, and Elizabeth finds work with the Willstones family as a governess to their precocious daughter Emily.

The Willstones are currently in London, so Elizabeth is an easy distance from her sister Jane with whom she spends her Sundays off. At the start of the novel, Elizabeth, while visiting the Gardiners, learns that Lydia has returned to the regiment and the Forsters. The regiment has been removed from Brighton and is now in Stratford. Knowing what she does of Wickham, this concerns Elizabeth greatly.

While serving the Willstones, Elizabeth becomes acquainted with Rosalyn Willstone, Mrs. Willstone's sister. Elizabeth and Rosalyn become fast friends, and Elizabeth's lonely life now doesn't seem so dire. Rosalyn confesses to Elizabeth that she is in love with a gentleman of high rank, who is a social acquaintance of her family. She is distressed because he doesn't seem to notice her. You might begin to guess, and you'd be right, that this gentleman is none other than Mr. Darcy.

And so Elizabeth is thrown back into the path of Mr. Darcy, where now she is of an even lower class, and though her feelings begin to change, she is sure that she can no longer possibly be an object of desire for him. She must sit by and counsel Rosalyn on how Rosalyn might catch Mr. Darcy.

It's not long before Elizabeth encounters Darcy again. She also is reacquainted with Mr. Bingley, who is still single and clearly still in love with Jane Bennet.

Elizabeth has more time to observe Darcy's character than she does in the original text. When the Willstones and Elizabeth are invited to Pemberley for a fortnight, she sees his beautiful estate, and gets to know his shy sister Georgiana. She learns that he is not only a smart, proud man, but also a devoted brother, landlord, and friend. Lizzy must now convince Darcy that she has changed her opinion of him, but the added difficulty of Rosalyn's pathetic attempts to ensnare him, the Willstones disapproval of her "intimacy" with such a high ranking family, and her new situation in life makes the couple face more troubles than ever before. And then there is Lydia who, in Louise's book, cannot escape her fate with Wickham....

You will not be disappointed with Louise's tale of Elizabeth and Darcy. Though we know Darcy and Lizzy will end up together, their journey to love is still exciting, unpredictable, and sigh inducingly romantic. The couple certainly faces more challenges, but that only makes the end result more satisfying.

What If...? 7 juin 2011
Par Larkspur - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is a "what if?" variation of Pride and Prejudice. It asks what if Mr. Bennett had died just after Elizabeth refused Mr. Darcy's proposal. What if she had to take a job as a governess when Mr Collins took possession of her family home? What if she had never taken that trip to Pemberly with her aunt and uncle? Would Darcy and Lizzie still end up together or would her change in station make it impossible?

I really enjoyed this book. Sometimes when I read these variations I feel the authors are talking about different characters entirely who just happened to be named Darcy and Lizzie. This was not the case with Only Mr Darcy Will Do. I felt like Kara Louise stayed true to the characters that Jane Austen created. There was never a moment that I thought to myself "Mr Darcy wouldn't have done or said that." It very much felt like the same people walking down a different path. I also enjoyed her new characters. They had depth and were well developed.

The main focus was on Darcy and Lizzie of course, but we also got to see what happened to the rest of the sisters after their change in circumstances. I especially enjoyed the little glimpse into Kitty and Mary's future. So many authors just ignore those two and I always wish they had their stories wrapped up as nicely as everyone else.
