I really wanted to like this book. I loved the movie and book Pride and Predjudice, but I could not finish this book. I barely made it though the description of the wedding night before I gave up. It was just too ridiculous for me....maybe I'm too cynical. The Darcy and Elizabeth in this book bear no resemblance to the characters from the movies or the book. I'm sure someone could appreciate this book, it just wasn't for me!

I didn't like this book at all. Darcy and Elizabeth do not resemble Jane Austen's original characters very much. They both seem a bit self-absorbed, and Elizabeth's sparkling wit from the original Pride and Prejudice is reduced to some immature teasing and irrational stubbornness. Their physical relationship takes up a large part of the book and it's actually boring, not exciting at all. He carried her to the bed, blah blah blah, skip ahead. Both D and E are constantly professing their love to each other in ridiculously high-flown language. They also both have the habit of saying things like "I have no words to express how much I love you" and then continuing in many words to express how much. There is little, if any, plot to speak of. A few minor events are interspersed in this 300-page, very uninteresting, excessively maudlin story of the beginning of Darcy and Elizabeth's marriage. I'm a sentimental person, but this nonsense was so fakey that I wanted to gag more and more as the book continued.

Well, it was a good idea, but, it did not work. I was quite shocked at the emphasis on the physical relationship between the two characters. While I was curious, this took up a good two-thirds of the book! It was just too much. Much of it made me blush. The author (a Christian) could have left most of that up to our imagination. What I really wanted to do was to find out what was in Darcy's head, and where the author approached this, she did quite well. Although, at times there was a one-dimensional feel to these originally complex characters. The plot took forever to get going, and then took some weird, and some very predictable turns.
All in all, I think that my own imagination at what might have happened to Elizabeth and Darcy was much more satisfying than Ms. Lathan's conclusions. I don't think I'll read the sequel (if there is one).
