Not nearly as good as her first book, which I loved. This one just didn't have the sparkle of the first, it was rather tiresome listening to all their moaning and groaning (and not necessarily in a sexual way - though there was plenty of that as well!) about life now with the children and Darcy's constant one track mind! You're better off without this sequel if you loved the first.
It is extremely sexual, in-so-much that it borders on pornography.
I got it for my daughter and she came back o me about five minutes later say that she couldn't read such a disgusting book...
It came so highly recommended by trusted adults, that I didn't even preview it first...
Big mistake!!! read the reveiws by
Merri C, Marleen B, Stephanie H, N. S, Michelle B., and Dani R in the book
'Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife'
They completely apply to this book
A good read...but not for Austen purists.
Nowhere near as good as the first sequel, this book is extremely repetitive. Expect to hear recaps of practically everything that happened in Mr. Darcy Takes A Wife. Since I read these back to back this was irritating.
The story jumps around a lot between different characters' points of view, but not always chronologically. This makes the story muddled and sometimes confusing.
I still loved the beautiful prose and of course hearing more about the Darcys (except for some of the ridiculous romantic scenes) and their extended circle.
A decent and enjoyable variation on Pride and prejudice.
Jane Austen lovers simply don't want the stories to end. Unfortunately, wexcept for the factthat the characters have teh same names, Linda Berdoll's series is not true to the originals. A waste of valuable reading time!
i was not disappointed. i thought it to be a great read and very well written. you always want to know what happened after they were married and on thier own.
OK, I liked it. Thought the story was well written and good, you can't expect it to be a Jane Austen novel and those who do will be disappointed but those who just want t a fun read, this will be great.
This author writes a fun sequel to Pride and Prejudice. There is plenty of evening activities that add to this great novel.
I really enjoyed the premise and plot of this book. Darcy and Elizabeth's married life is certainly busy and demanding. Lady Catherine sheds some new light on things as Darcy manipulates her into action. Unfortunately Charlotte Collins dies in childbirth which leaves Mr. Collins and baby daughter open to all sorts of possibilities. Kitty becomes a very polished young woman and has a very serious suitor. Colonel Fitzwilliam makes a couple appearances. Darcy's Pemberley is entailed and after a year of marriage still Darcy has no male heir so in comes a cousin from India for Darcy to train and teach about running an estate. Mr. Wentworth and his sister stay at Pemberley for awhile and during this training Wentworth develops attachments. Georgiana has a couple suitors to get sorted out, one being Jane and Bingley's neighbor. Caroline is despicable as usual and Darcy handles that. There is hope for even her. There is intrigue and disaster, accidents, gypsies, murder, death, love, romance, no sex scenes. I enjoyed this but I felt the dialogue was choppy, the editing needed severe help, there are few descriptions of scenery or rooms or clothing or of any sort. I was so distracted by incorrect spelling, improper grammar, mix ups of characters that I almost gave it up. But that's just a me thing....I find it very distracting. I did enjoy the ups and downs of the plot and the way the sequel was directed. It's a hard to find book but still worth the read for the storyline.
I bought this new at B&N and I didn't really get into it. I just didn't like the style of writing at all, so i'm passing it on. Hope others out there enjoy it!
The sequel to "Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife", this hot-blooded romance continues the tale of Pemberly's most famous inhabitants, their family, friends and enemies. With great imagination and not a small amount of steamy detail, Linda Berdoll finishes the story we all wished would never end, and tells us what happened to everyone! A thoroughly enjoyable book!
If you loved Austen's Elizabeth and Darcy and didn't want the story to end, here's your chance for it to continue! Wonderfully written, I loved this series - Berdoll does justice to Austen's characters!
I posted the ISB number and it posts a different title. The title on the cover is Darcy and Elizabeth: nights and days at Pemberly, Pride and Prejudice Continues. I loved the first book of the sequel, but this one disappointed me. I actually lost interest and could not finish the book. The story line just seemed way off from the original. I do not recommend this book.
The woman who wrote this book did not even read Pride and Prejudice. See my review of "Mr. Darcy takes a Wife," book 2 for details.
Berdoll's second sequel to Jane Austen's "Pride & Prejudice" ... loved it!!
Another wonderful book... love the story line...
keeps it all interesting - and you continue to learn more about the characters..
Again - a bit on the saucy sexy side.. but I just love the character development.
From the back cover:
A delightful romp through the possibilities of Elizabeth and Darcy's romance and life together. An absolute joy to read, this book will take you into another time when gentility, romance and love was ripe. Very giftable!
Also entitled "Nights and Days at Pemberley." The first of this series was so bad I couldn't bear to read this - the second.
