Présentation de l'éditeur

Can a marriage of convenience ever lead to true love? Immediately after Elizabeth Bennet refuses Mr. Darcy's proposal at Hunsford, her father dies, leaving Longbourn entailed away and little fortune to sustain his widow and daughters. Six months later, the Bennet family receives a visitor with a most unusual offer that promises to save the family from financial and social ruin. Elizabeth's sense of duty forces her to enter into an arranged marriage with a man she does not even like. Told from Elizabeth's point of view, An Arranged Marriage is a compelling twist on Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Can Elizabeth overcome her feelings of anger, resentment, and suspicion toward her new husband and - the most bewildering sensation of all - a growing attraction for the last man in the world she ever wished to marry?

Un bon petit roman qui se laisse lire sans difficulté et qui propose une histoire alternative intéressante et assez crédible, à travers les yeux de l'héroïne, Elizabeth, elle-même.
Le père de Lizzy meurt peu après la 1ère demande en mariage de Darcy, laissant la famille dans une situation financière dramatique. Lizzy se retrouve mariée contre son gré à Mr Darcy. Commence alors une aventure où se montrent à la fois l'entêtement d'Elizabeth et le caractère fier, obscure et peu loquace de son mari.
Intéressant donc, et assez divertissant. On a quand même envie, à certains moments au début, de donner une bonne fessée à l'héroïne ! ;-)

Pour le moment, c'est, à mes yeux, le meilleur roman alternatif de P&P !

Un what if dans le monde de Pride & Prejudice ! Dans cette version, Mr Bennet est mort... Lizzie n'a donc jamais fait le voyage dans la région des lacs avec les Gardiner, Lydia s'est toutefois mariée avec Wickham et Lizzy a bien eu la lettre de Darcy... Sauf qu'ils ne se sont pas revus jusqu'à ce qu'elle soit forcée d'accepter sa demande en mariage pour sauver sa famille ... On retrouve donc Lizzie juste après son mariage avec Darcy ( qu'elle déteste). Le récit est écrit à la première personne ce qui est un plus. Je dois dire que j'ai beaucoup apprécié ce roman... Même si la fin reste convenue (on se doute bien de ce qui va advenir) ça reste plaisant à lire. Cependant, j'ai quand même quelques réserves sur la personnalité d'Elizabeth qui m'a parfois un peu hérissée (trop timorée, trop impulsive....) Mais dans l'ensemble j'ai apprécié. Darcy m'a beaucoup plu dans cette histoire ! Je l'ai trouvé presque parfait

Ce que j'aime : le soin apporté par l'auteur pour coller le plus possible à l'original :) . Son Darcy

Ce que j'aime moins : une Lizzy parfois un peu trop sentimentale/gnangnan

En bref : Un what if très divertissant et travaillé. Toujours moins bien que l'original mais très agréable à lire !

Ma note

7/10

I truly loved this book, the writing is delicate and beautiful, it is really faithful to the original style of Austen. Here the story is entirely told from Elizabeth's point of view, thus we have access to her inner thoughts, doubts and sometimes twists of the tongue, or here mind!

The characters are faithful to their original description, Mr Darcy being as charming as ever, Elizabeth witty and quite angry at times...

Most of all, I absolutely loved the twist in the plot "forcing" them to be married even if she strongly disliked him at first.

I also would like to thank the author for her marvellous ideas when it came to bring them close to each other by "mistake", how funny, sweet and delightful! The wedding night being one of my favorites, along with their reunion at the harvest ball! (WON-DER-FUL!)

So in a few words, if you love Pride & Prejudice as much as I do, there are 99,9% of chances you will absolutely fall for An Arranged Marriage!! :)

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Impressive alteration of Pride&Prejudice; told from Lizzy's POV; her voice just comes right off the pages! 21 août 2011
Par Christina Boyd - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Debut author Jan Hahn's novel, "An Arranged Marriage" begs the question, "Can a marriage of convenience ever lead to true love?" In Hahn's impressive alteration of Jane Austen's "Pride & Prejudice," days after Miss Elizabeth Bennet stringently refuses the proposal of Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy at Hunsford, her beloved father dies, leaving the family with meager resources and an estate entailed to their toad-eating cousin, Mr. Collins. Half a year later, as the ladies of Longbourn are packing to make way for the new owner, Mr. Darcy offers for Elizabeth's hand once again. Despite her passionate dislike and distrust of the man, Elizabeth, with a grievous and bitter heart, accepts, saving her family from ruination and despair. Refreshingly narrated from Elizabeth's keen and often caustic perspective, we are privy to her inner most thoughts as she struggles to conquer her turmoil of the loss of her father; the disgrace of her youngest sister; the humiliation of her eldest sister; the anxiety of nearly losing her home; and of course, the distress from this arranged marriage. And yet most disconcerting to her psyche is her blossoming passion for the last man in the world she could ever be prevailed upon to marry.

Hahn's mastery of Regency eloquence, as well as the seamless injections of Austen's most famous prose is pitch perfect. Most appreciated is her deft understanding of romance-- sans all the tiresome throbbing and moaning one reads so often in many Darcy and Elizabeth adaptations. "His voice was as low and resonant as the diva's was high and clear, and I thought how lovely it would be to hear such words on his lips if we truly cared for each other. `Caro mi ben, credimi almen, senza di te languisce it cor.' `My dear beloved, believe me at least, without you my heart languishes.' With that last phrase, I turned and found him gazing directly into my eyes as he spoke." p.80. Without forced melodrama, Hahn spins an intriguing back-story, weaving Darcy's sister Georgianna, Mrs. Darcy's new lady maid, George Wickham and even Colonel Fitzwilliam through a snare of secrets and deception. Like Austen, Hahn successfully balances drama and humour. Even showing the stoic Mr. Darcy to behold a cutting wit in regards to his loose-lipped cousin, ""Fitzwilliam? What is he now, an old woman?" p.172

As in Austen's original, Elizabeth has not yet discovered that Darcy rescued Lydia from disaster, or comprehends that he could still be in-love with her after her headstrong refusal at Hunsford. His blunders as a new husband and his propensity to hold private matters close, feed her doubts and suspicion. I found myself holding my breath on more than one honest sparring - hoping and praying they would be able to "endeavor to practice the niceties of polite society." p.77. But as they learned to get on, more often I found myself laughing out loud at Elizabeth's musings. "He smiled and kissed my hand before releasing it. We then retired for the night, each to our separate rooms, and I was even more aware than usual that we lay sleeping with only a wall and an unlocked heart between us. Did I say heart? I meant door. Truly, I did. Indeed, I meant door." p.94

I first discovered the writings of "JanH" February of 2007 on-line at Mrs. Darcy's Story Site. In fact I read this very story in one sitting, into the wee hours of the morning, only to discover to my horror, for some unknown reason, my computer would not scroll past Chapter 12! Fortunately some kind soul at the site's Forum sent me a link so that I could finish the story. Ever since I have long wished that this talented author would publish her stories, so that this confirmed fan-girl could have them in my belonging. At last, this whimsical wish has come to fruition. Congratulations, Jan Hahn! In a demesne of numerous Darcy and Elizabeth books available these days, "An Arranged Marriage" is at the top of my stacks, ready to be re-read. Again. And again. Wherever the book falls open. It's THAT enjoyable! A must read. I look forward to reading her next offering, "The Journey" in Fall 2011.

As per my review at AustenProse.

I definitely have mixed feelings about this one. I disliked the beginning and the end, but the middle was good enough to keep me interested. The dialogue was fun and lively, and the characterizations interesting and convincing. I particularly like how this author handled Georgiana and turned her into more of a three-dimensional character.

The first-person narration is probably the source of much of my discomfort with the story. Elizabeth kept thinking things that seemed jarring or out of character. It occurred to me that we never really hear Elizabeth's thoughts in P&P, so it's possible she had such insecure thoughts that weren't apparent from the outside. But I hated to see Elizabeth so insecure and willing to believe idiotic things! And yet in a way that's what P&P was about--jumping to conclusions and believing things that weren't true.

I was highly annoyed by most of the nicknames the characters used. Fitzwilliam calling Darcy "Darce" was the worst of them. On the other hand, I thought Fitzwilliam's nickname for Georgiana was believable and added to both of their characterizations.

One thing I loved about this book is how the author portrays Elizabeth's sexual awakening under the influence of Darcy. It's not explicit, but it's pretty convincing as well as making the story more enjoyable.

Overall, I think this story mostly suffers from the fact that I, the reader, had rigid expectations for Jane Austen's characters. It will always be challenging for an author to challenge those expectations. Huge credit to the author for writing a literate book. The language was pretty much impeccable.

I learned something from this weekend's reading. It's this: Do not, I repeat, do not read two P&P retellings back to back. After finishing Unequal Affections: A Pride and Prejudice Retelling I found this one offered for free and thought "why not". Well, there is a "why not". P&P fan fiction overload may result.

That's why I'm giving this book the benefit of the doubt with 3 stars, instead of 2. After all, what if this had been the first P&P retelling I'd read in years? Would I like it better? See, there are "what-if's" in my life as well as in Darcy's and Elizabeth's.

The author of this book seems to try to keep her writing and her characters true to Austen's, but I wasn't super happy, especially with Lizzie. Too many headaches, too stubborn and uncompromising and not witty enough. Then there was the plot itself that went all over the place with an illegitimate child and suspicions about the father, to blackmail, to a romance for Georgiana (Who cares? I'm in this for Darcy and Elizabeth), and an unsatisfactory Bingley/Jane connection. (Yes, they get together, of course, but I wasn't thrilled with Bingley here and Jane was pretty much a nonentity.)

Maybe this is better than I think. After all, I'd already had enough "what-if" P&P when I started reading it.

I am a big fan of Jan Hahn's novels and this storyline is my favourite subgenre of all the Pride and Prejudice variations (Elizabeth marrying Darcy before she loves him). This book is a solid read, and thoroughly enjoyable, however there were a few key points which kept it from being as good as I thought it would be.

This novel begins after Mr Bennet's death and an uncertain future for the Bennet ladies. Mr Darcy proposes marriage to Elizabeth, offering to protect her family and safeguard their future in return for her hand. I am sure he came to regret this decision immediately because he was met with the angriest, cattiest and most disdainful Elizabeth Bennet of all the many incarnations that exist. Her characterisation was even more surprising in that she had already read his letter from Hunsford, and knew that she had greatly mistaken his character and actions. Somehow it all meant very little to her, and believing him no longer in love with her, she didn’t care about the way she acted towards a man she still harboured great resentment for. I couldn't understand why she had such disdain for him, especially after he says he wouldn't claim his marriage rights until she agrees to it. Whilst this spares the sensibilities of modern readers, Elizabeth would certainly have understood that he did not have to do this and this act alone should have raised him in her esteem. It did not. Darcy too was a lot angrier and far more tempestuous that I have come to expect him. I suppose in that way, these two were perfect for each other, and they bickered their way through the first third of the novel.

The storyline and plot was very good. Because of the lack of understanding between Mr and Mrs Darcy, there was much mistaking of actions and character, but it didn't feel contrived or belabored. Because Elizabeth didn't believe in the goodness of Darcy, she was prone to believing the worst of him at all times but, to her credit, she progressed throughout the novel, coming to realise her own shortcomings. This was all very well done. Darcy, likewise, was still too proud in his dealings with his contemptuous wife to give her much credit initially and he too came to trust in her more. I really did enjoy this slow progression of understanding that developed between the two.

Likewise, the antagonists and conflicts were unique and contributed greatly to the story. Elizabeth's position in Darcy's household and family were well developed and I liked her interactions and growing friendship with Georgiana greatly. And the Regency holiday traditions were very well-researched and represented superbly. The antiquated customs were smoothly incorporated into the storyline and I found it fascinating reading. Honestly, given how many P&P variations can't even get the most basic Regency customs straight, this novel should be commended on that alone!

The underlying sexual tension between the couple was easily some of the best I've read in P&P variations, perhaps because some liberties were allowed as we had a married couple who hadn't yet consummated the union. Readers who avoid explicit sex scenes should be reassured that there aren't any in this book. There were however some masterfully written scenes of wanting and desire between the two before they act on it. At least Elizabeth's subconscious knew what she was about far earlier than Elizabeth did herself!

Jan Hahn is a wonderful author; 'A Peculiar Connection' and 'The Journey' are both truly superb. Fortunately, although 'An Arranged Marriage' isn't up to her lofty standards, it is still a very good book and I look forward to reading more from this author. I would also highly recommend 'Suddenly Mrs Darcy' by Jenetta James and 'Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy' by Abigail Reynolds to those that want to read more of this storyline.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Pride and Prejudice Variation 16 avril 2012
Par Nancy Kelley - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
"Plot = Conflict that forces your Character to Change." I said that a year ago in a blog post underlying the importance of conflict in fiction. It's a dictate writers of fanfiction have an especially hard time following, because 1) They love the characters and want them to be happy, and 2) Their readers love the characters and want them to be happy.

I must now confess to completely forgetting my own rule when I began reading An Arranged Marriage by Jan Hahn. In this Pride and Prejudice variation, Mr. Bennet dies suddenly just days after Darcy's ill-fated proposal in Kent. Elizabeth returns to Longbourn to suffer his death and Lydia's later scandal with her mother and sisters, but she does not travel to Derbyshire with her aunt and uncle that summer. Therefore, she has no cause to believe Mr. Darcy's proud demeanor is changed at all, and since Darcy still orders the Gardiners not to make his part in Lydia's marriage known, she has no reason to believe in the depth of his goodness and devotion to her. Upon hearing of the Bennet ladies' dire straits, he offers to marry her yet again, and she accepts--for their sake.

I frowned and tutted through the first half of the book when she doubted his goodness and his very nature. How could she think such things about Darcy? Didn't she know he was the very best of men? (Another confession, dear reader: I may have the slightest bit of a crush on Mr. Darcy.)

The answer, of course, is that she did not know. Once I remembered that and realized how very smoothly Ms. Hahn had introduce conflict into the Darcy marriage, I stopped frowning and simply marveled at the story. I loved reading the little moments when she realized how wrong she'd been about her husband, and their reconciliation was among the more romantic scenes I've ever read.

There is a depth to this novel that one does not often find. The struggles between Elizabeth and Darcy take place on many levels, and even when the central trust issues are resolved, there is more to keep the story going. The reader has the delightful opportunity to watch a happy couple work through some of their smaller disagreements, in a manner that is entirely realistic.

An Arranged Marriage is told in first person, and while this is not my usual preference, it truly works in this novel. Elizabeth's voice comes through so clearly, we can easily see the same wit and humor her late father loved her for. The sly humor combined with the sweetness of the romance made this one of the best books I have read all year.
