Managed to get this book from my local library, and once I got over the fact that she has given Dacy an extra name of Robert which Lizzy calls him I found it an excellent read with many funny passages. I loved the bit where gave you to imagine Mr Collins in Stays(corsets) that sqeaked every time he danced,that had me in stiches. The book manly has Lizzy and Darcy has its main story characters but ends up killing off Mr Collins so that Charlotte can remarry and Mr Bennet becomes sole owner of Longborne as the entail is broken

I admit that I LOVED the author's ability to make Charlotte more in this book. And Jane is what she should be. But other than that...Caroline nice? Louise and Hurst hosting? Georgiana all but excluded in every way? The care of Mary was excellent, but the worst of offenses with this book is the overdone tone of overbearing outspokenness which, if looked at objectively, is almost referred to or done on every page. The fact that Elizabeth is at every turn 'setting some one down' or 'reminding them of their place' and even of her new rank.....yeah, it made an otherwise well done story seem more cruel and vicious than I had hoped. It is not that I do not suggest that anyone make their own opinion, and as noted some I so very appreciated....but with Elizabeth, Mrs. Bennet, and Lady Catherine always at one another's throat......that seemed a bit overdone.
