Second Impressions

French War over and peace come at last what does England look like in the late Regency And is there a place for Austen’s heroes and heroines in an England greatly changed by industrialization with a new elite of fortunes made in trade and reformist politics A worthy and elouent attempt at portraying the Darcy s world in a historical contextThe author beautifully captures Austen s elegant writing style but the book is little than a travelogue of the country at the dawn of the Industrial Age In this PP incarnation the Darcy s decide to tour the countryside visiting the grand estates castles monuments growing cities and many other important sites of their age at a time when great changes are on the horizon It s a noble effort but those of us who hunger for intimate revelations about our favorite PP characters will become impatient with all the admittedly accurate but ultimately tedious details and descriptions of life during this time period One thing I did enjoy was that Lizzy and Darcy visited old friends and casual acuaintances such as Mr Knightly and his lovely Emma Captain and Mrs Wentworth and several other familiar personages with Austen pedigrees but none of these encounters were developed into much of a story line In the spirit of honest disclosure I was not motivated to finish the book so perhaps diligent readers will better appreciate the historical aspects of this meticulously researched literary work and thus be amply rewarded for their efforts

Written in the idiom of Jane Austen’s time this seuel to Pride and Prejudice tells the story of the Darcy family their friends and their relations in the 10 years since the day Mrs Bennet got rid of her two most deserving daughters Drawing its history from I had the pleasure of reading this book while on vacation I had a lot of time to step back read Pride Prejudice again and then continue into this novel I loved the characters and unlike some other reviewers found them dynamic and true to Austen I felt her descriptions of locations took me along for the journey which was at times an arduous one Once I got into Book II I felt it read exuisitely and could barely put it down to enjoy my surroundings

    This seuel to Pride and Prejudice is certainly one of the better written continuations I have read The amount of research done by theauthor into every aspect of Regency life and times in England and Europe is just dazzling

    A worthy and elouent attempt at portraying the Darcy’s world in a historical contextThe author beautifully captures Austen’s elegant writing style but the book is little than a travelogue of the country at the dawn of the Indus

    Honestly I was prepared to give it a higher rating because the facsimile of Austen is so good Unfortunately too much of the “second book” is taken up by a travelogue that feels interminable and becomes redundant The few advances to the plot it contributes could have been done with a lot fewer complaints about the dirtiness of Europe yes we get it There’s no place like home Not only did that section really bog down the pace of the boo
