Présentation de l'éditeur

A fresh retelling of Pride and Prejudice.... what if Mr. Darcy had a serious rival for Elizabeth Bennet? A passionate new Pride and Prejudice variation explores the unthinkable. Elizabeth accepts the proposal of a childhood friend before she meets Darcy again. When their paths cross, the devastated Mr. Darcy must decide how far he ll go to win the woman he loves. How can a man who prides himself on his honour ask the woman he loves to do something scandalous? And how can Elizabeth accept a loveless marriage when Mr. Darcy holds the key to her heart? As they confront family opposition and the ill-will of scandal-mongers, will Elizabeth prove to be Mr. Darcy s undoing? --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition Broché .

As usual, P&P adaptations from Abigail Reynolds are well written, describe a story with the expected characters of Darcy and Lizzy, having difficulties in reaching an understanding. As usual in Abigail's stories, Lizzy and Darcy are prone to broke society's rules, which leads to description of intimate scenes which may be unwanted by most P&P fans. But having read a huge amount of JAFFs I am really always happy to find A REAL STORY in Abigail's books as compared to others, it's not just a story about uncontrollable passion, there is much more, including a real involvement of other characters (Georgina, Richard, Bingley, Jane ...) in the story.

HASH(0x8cc49624) étoiles sur 5 Interesting Twist and a Lovely Tale 18 juillet 2007
Par Eee - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Taken as just a romantic tale, Without Reserve is a very satisfying read.
But, readers of Pride and Prejudice will find this to be a very original and satisfying variation. The idea of Darcy faced with another suitor for Elizabeth's hand makes an excellent story, and provides a look at some of the social customs of the time. It also provides some heart-wrenching moments as well as some beautifully romantic scenes. The interactions between the main characters, Darcy and Elizabeth are beautifully evocative. The use of Blake's poetry serves to complement the story and helps to frame the relationship between Darcy and Elizabeth.

I love this story - I've read it over and over again. It keeps your interest throughout, and should appeal to a wide range of readers.

HASH(0x8cc49678) étoiles sur 5 Classic Literature turned trashy 21 juillet 2008
Par amabbott927 - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This was the first of Abigail Reynolds books I've read. I loved P&P and all of Austen's books as well as some of the variations I've read. The story idea was good...Darcy facing competition was a great idea... the middle to end of the story was was nothing but descriptions of Darcy and Elizabeth's premarital sexual encounters. The likelihood that the Elizabeth Bennet(or even Mr. Darcy with his sense of right and wrong) I read about behaving in such a way especially after Lydia's disgrace is impossible and unbelievable. I like a good storyline if you can skip the sex scenes and still have a good story but this was almost as bad as Linda Berdoll's Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife. I hated it and am not going to read any of the other books in the series or by this author. This book was classic literature rewritten to make it a trashy novel.

HASH(0x8cc49ab0) étoiles sur 5 Terrible! 12 février 2008
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
If I could have given this book zero stars I would have. It was terrible. It is a trashy romance novel with the names of Jane Austen's beloved characters thrown in it. I love Jane Austen and I love Elizabeth Bennett because I always felt like I related to her. This version of Elizabeth is so silly and stupid I had no respect for her at all. She agrees to marry a man she does not love? Unheard of! And though I am sure Mr. Darcy had desires for Elizabeth sexually he was a GENTLEMAN in every form of the word and would never have compromised Elizabeth as he does in this book. The Mr. Darcy in this book was no gentleman. I liked the idea of these "what if" books but they are done all wrong. The characters that I know and love would have never acted in the manner that they do in this book. I will not be reading anymore of the Pride and Prejudice Variations.

HASH(0x8cc49a98) étoiles sur 5 Maybe three stars is overly generous for my tastes. 15 février 2008
Par J. Lesley - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
After I read "The Last Man in the World" I figured I was home free with this author. I really enjoyed reading that book. Then I began to read this one. Obviously, somewhere along the way I became confused about what this series of books was intended to do because this one just threw me for a loop. Ms Reynolds took situations from the basic Pride and Prejudice but about all I recognized was that Darcy had proposed marriage and Elizabeth had refused him, Darcy had unmasked Wickham, and Lydia had eloped with Wickham after going to Bath with Colonel and Mrs Forster. Everything else is very, very much a new story.

I had not realized that I was going to be reading a romance novel where the author used the names of people and places which I was familiar with but in very unfamiliar circumstances. In this book Abigail Reynolds has veered off so far from the original text and ideas of Pride and Prejudice that it really made me uncomfortable in spots. After having Elizabeth and Darcy go through torture for page after page concerning his love for her, then her love for him, she began to put in very explicit sex scenes. First they were in the form of dreams for Darcy. Then they began to be actual occurrances with Elizabeth. I didn't like for my beloved characters to be kidnapped like that. Maybe I would not have objected so much if these sexual situations had happened #1 - after they were married, or #2 - toward the end of the book, but this book is just filled with the situations I prefer to use my imagination for regarding Darcy and Elizabeth.

I love the way Jane Austen wrote Darcy and Elizabeth. I allowed myself to accept Ms Reynolds changes in these characters for "The Last Man in the World" because I thought she had held basically to the actual story and moral character of the people in the original. In this book, she just went too far toward the physical for my taste. I read other fiction which includes senuality even more pronounced than this but they don't feature Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy. It feels as if she took two people who I know and love and turned them into characters in what is commonly called "a trashy novel". I didn't like that.

I have the other three books. I'm hoping PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE don't let them be like this one! I gave it three stars. Maybe 2.5 would have been more reflective of my feelings.

HASH(0x8cc49e64) étoiles sur 5 Another Classic Story from Abigail 7 septembre 2007
Par Mrs. Sandra Platt - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I am a huge fan of all of Abigail's 'variations' on the original Pride & Prejudice, but also have to agree with another reviewer here. Here is a story that works beautifully whether you know/understand/love P&P or not. (Actually, I would say that of all Abigail's works, with hindsight).

This is a lovely 'what if' - I love the sheer romance of it all, that Darcy loves Elizabeth so much that he pursues her, then leaves her in peace because he believes she has made a choice that she is happy about, and wants what is best for her; then he finds his purpose again in such a wonderful way... the second part of the book, with his renewed determination to win her to his point of view is just so rewarding, romantic and superbly written that you almost don't want the story to end!

Another great read, I highly recommend it.
