    One thought on “Darcy's Folly: A Pride and Prejudice Variation”

    1. Quick read, like a DVD on fast forwardThis was such a quick read that it felt like I was finished before I started. At 88 pages and 9 chapters, you are in and out of scenes quicker than greased lightning. We are at Rosings Park and we have the usual cast of characters visiting Lady Catherine with one exception. Lady C’s good friend and town gossip, Lord and Lady Baelhorn. This set the stage fairly quickly. You sort of knew something was going to happen to ODC with a gossip handy to spread it a [...]

    2. This is a short novella with a forced marriage scenario between Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth. The tale begins at Hunsford. Elizabeth is reported as missing the morning after Darcy's disastrous proposal. When Darcy learns this from his valet, he immediately goes out to search himself and finds her on the ground with an injured ankle. He appears carrying her in his arms, and everyone can see that neither have changed clothes since the previous night. (Darcy was up writing his letter, while Elizabeth ha [...]

    3. Darcy's FollyThis was a fun read by Jane Grix, her writing is always clever, a little mix of love with a few trials thrown in, but she has it all figured out for us,in a nice well-written package in the end. She always delivers. This story was an accidental compromise of Lizzie and Darcy with him determined to win her over and Lizzie is in full blown impertinent mode. Good read for everyone, I'm sure.

    4. This was a quick read that was entertaining enough, but was a bit ridiculous at times. It's another story where an accident leads to a scandal forcing Darcy and Lizzy to marry earlier than in the original. Lizzie is less rational and more angry, Darcy is less brooding and the sense of propriety and control peppered with wit that is so much a part of Austen, is sadly missing. It feels very modern. Still, not a terrible read but isn't one of the better JAFF books I have read.
