Présentation de l'éditeur

A sexy, bold adaptation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice that re-paints favorite characters in twenty-first century colors


Judge Fitzwilliam Darcy, a legal expert on both sides of the Atlantic, is ready to hang up his black robe and return to the life of a country gentleman—until he meets Elizabeth Bennet, a fresh-faced attorney with a hectic schedule and no time for the sexy but haughty judge.


Tempers and sparks fly in Judge Darcy's courtroom— and outside, in a series of chance encounters that give each of them pause—as the two match wits and try to fight their overwhelming attraction. When they meet up in England at an international law conference, they embark on a hot, heavy affair. Back in the States, though, ethical considerations intrude, and each is subjected to a torturous period of soul-searching before they can find their way back to each other...

Not your regular Darcy and Elizabeth ; Jane Austen would struggle to recognize her characters, or the storyline but I enjoyed it anyway. This is a pleasant book for vacations, with an enjoyable Speed racer/Darcy.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 From the Author, the Back Cover Blurb: 18 février 2008
Par Sara W. Angelini - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
I thought I would provide the back-cover blurb and a little more detail than the description above.

A thoroughly modern adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel Pride and Prejudice, The Trials of the Honorable F. Darcy re-paints our favorite characters in twenty-first century colors.

Judge Fitzwilliam Darcy has had enough. A transplanted Englishman roped into being a San Francisco judge at a young age, Will Darcy is ready to hang up his black robe and return to the life of a country gentleman until he meets Elizabeth Bennet, a fresh-faced attorney with a hectic schedule and no time for the sexy judge. She's just trying to survive her first year as a trial lawyer.

Played out in Judge Darcy's courtroom, tempers and sparks fly as the two battle wits and chemistry, and the inevitable occurs: judge meets attorney, judge snubs attorney, judge falls for attorney.

When the two are unexpectedly thrown together, passions flare. But when the ethical considerations forbid their romance, can Will convince Elizabeth that their love is worth fighting for?

A sexy, bold, and oftentimes hilarious story with a fresh and vibrant cast of characters, The Trials of the Honorable F. Darcy will pull you in from the first page and won't let go until the last!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The most delectable Judge ever.... 9 janvier 2008
Par M. Hercaud - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
... and the most swoonable Darcy as well (and if swoonable doesn't YET exist in the dictionaries, I'll plead my non-English speaking... :-) )

But I have to say that Sara Angelini managed to show us what we all suspected and Miss Austen didn't dare to (but mentioned it all the same!) by the time she wrote the wonderful story of Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet: the strong attraction which subsisted between the two of them from the beginning! Yes, she did speak of - or rather made Darcy speak of - those utmost forces of passion...
Yes, we do sense them in this modern narration of the most beloved novel (Pride & Prejudice).
Wonderful story, one of those you would keep on your bed stand for repeated bed time reading...

A purported modern update of _Pride and Prejudice_, light and definitely sexier than the original, given the sell on the cover. I really wanted to like it. However... while it had some funny moments, it's... just... no. I hate feeling like a big meanie, but really, no. And I don't say this because of the profanity or because of the sex, but because it's just... the loosest draping on the Austen framework I have ever read.

[Spoilers to follow!]

It starts out promising enough, but it quickly diverges from the Austen canon. Quickly. Like, before the first fifth of the book is through, they're already sleeping together in the equivalent of the Lake District/Pemberley visit. After *blazing* through months and months of time with nothing much of note occurring except maybe the Halloween party (which, I admit I liked, except for some POV confusion, but more on that in a bit).

And, boy, do they ever sleep together. I like a good bit of erotica, even smut, but this... I was getting bored with it. Me! *Bored with erotica!* Not all of it was bad (though some of the terms made me laugh), but after a point, I was just slogging through thinking, "Okay, surely we get back to the actual story soon. SURELY!"

Even taking into account the updates for modernization, the characterization feels all wrong. Jane is not reserved enough. Caroline helps Darcy to WIN BACK Elizabeth (I mean, *what*?). Georgiana's woes were suitably updated (the only thing I can say with any satisfaction), but... then she marries an original character. And the Colonel Fitzwilliam character marries Caroline (!). Lou Hurst as gay BFF to Lizzie, with Charlotte only as a secondary character (and Mr Collins a pervy lawbreaker). Lizzie's parents as old pot-smoking hippies (I did laugh at that, but... not really a true port forward).

And then there's Wickham. Or rather, there isn't. Seriously missing from this book is the entire Wickham subplot. You know, THE SUBPLOT THAT DRIVES THE TENSION between Darcy and Lizzie in the original. Instead, the professional relationship they have, which causes ethical problems within their office, is what keeps them apart. Wickham is still the cause of Georgiana's woes, but his only appearance in the whole story is in court being tried for crimes similar to the one perpetrated against Georgiana. The scene where he is about to be defended by Lizzie's firm, until she learns what he did to Georgiana and drops him... and then... that's that. He's gone, it's over, and he's off to jail. There is no romantic triangle, no tension. I'm not sure how this can be a modern retelling of the Austen tale withOUT the triangle/tension. Even Bridget Jones had Mark AND Daniel.

And Jane (she who is not reserved enough) and Bingley get together too easily, with minimal to no objections from Darcy. There is definitely a bit of overkill with Darcy, who is a little TOO perfect: not only is Darcy a barrister-cum-US-judge*, but he used to be a race car driver! AND he's an expert horseman! And THEN it's revealed he's a musician with a soft, sensitive side! It was all just a bit too eye-rollingly much. These characters could have been called by any other names, really... and I probably would have liked the book more.

(* How he is able to do this--move between systems of law, or exactly WHY he has had to do so--is never really fully explained, other than his mother was American, but that is *hardly* enough.)

I will admit, there's some snappy dialogue at which I found myself laughing out loud. (The occasional insertion of cut-and-paste of original Austen dialog was awkward and forced, though, and sounded completely ridiculous.) I liked the update to the backstory for Darcy and his sister (as previously mentioned), which also adequately explained why Darcy was so rusty in the dating world. And the restraint on Darcy's part as the result of a professional relationship with Elizabeth, not due to her family not having the right connections (class warfare), etc. is appropriately modern, though this was at the cost of Wickham dynamic.

But unfortunately, it's just not enough. To wit, the following:

* There are enough comma splices to choke a horse, and a very weird adherence to grammatical rules.

* An obvious lack of familiarity with England and the culture. For example: Darcy, an Englishman, raised in England and presumably schooled at the likes of Eton, refers to having learned something in 'high school'--this is dialogue OUT OF HIS MOUTH--and in another instance, while in his POV, thinks of the road between London and his country home as the 'freeway'. Er, no.

* While mainly set in San Francisco, there's actually not much reason AT ALL for any of this story to take place in England or for Darcy to be English--the set-up for him being a judge in a county court in the Bay Area is tenuous and flimsy at best, especially since they don't really do 'law firms' in England the way we do--other than to give Darcy and Elizabeth an out for ethical misconduct scenario between judge and lawyer. The author would have been better off sticking to the Bay Area and, presumably, an area and a culture with which she is more familiar.

* Poor transitions from one character's POV to another in the same scene, which is best demonstrated by example: for the Halloween party, it was not clear to me whether Elizabeth knew it was Darcy under the helmet or not because of the use of his name in this shifting POV scenario... until she asked, "Who are you?"

* The capper: "Nouvo riche" instead of "nouveau riche" (yes, really). I read the line several times before I actually groaned. And then it happened again. There was an editor, wasn't there?

Feel like I need to reread _Bridget Jones' Diary_ in penance.

Many modern adaptations of Pride and Prejudice fall short because the author tries to "rewrite" the story but forgets to develop the characters. I found some of the "connections" to P&P to be a bit of a stretch (i.e., Meryton is a suburb of San Francisco and this F. Darcy is the great, great, great, great, great grandson of the character we Austen fans all love), but the characterization between Darcy and Elizabeth is still there, just like in the original. They are very passionate, a characteristic I always assumed the original couple had, even though Regency England required them to be hidden passions. I could do without the use of the "F" word, but it would not keep me from rereading this book.
Darcy is everything a woman could want - tall, handsome, rich, and sensitive. Elizabeth is an independent woman. I, especially, loved the scene after the bachelor auction when she slapped the wholly crap out of him in the parking lot. You go girl!!!!
Anyway, I would recommend this to anyone who loves P&P as I do.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 This is NOT a modern P&P...only the names are the same. 20 janvier 2011
Par Ellemenope - Publié sur Amazon.com

I was really looking forward to reading this and was supremely disappointed. If you love the idea of P&P don't expect any of it from this book other than the similarity of the names. It is a semi-entertaining story if you like quick reads with no substance and lots of sex, but don't expect any resemblance to the characters of Jane Austen's. It pretty much is a glorified bodice-ripper and I didn't care anything about the characters, primarily because there was very little character development. If you took out all the sex you'd probably be left with MAYBE 100 pages in a 338-page book. After Darcy and Elizabeth meet in the beginning of the book their contact together in the courtroom spans all of 5 pages and is mostly described passively, with no real dialogue. This is supposed to support how Darcy is falling for Elizabeth but without real conversation it's difficult to believe any of it. I couldn't believe anything but the lust between the two characters, and if Darcy has so much integrity (which was mentioned by Elizabeth over and over) then how come he sleeps with his best friends' sister on and off for years, and the two of them engage in an affair even though they both know it's unethical and against the rules? Don't get me wrong, I have no problem with graphic sex scenes, but I like it much better when I feel like the attraction is about the characters first, and the sex second. This felt completely contrived. The only similarities to P&P were the names of some of the characters, and the fact that Darcy wrote Elizabeth a letter. None of the other characters meant anything and were completely glossed over as unimportant.

A quick, fun beach read, nothing more.
