Book Review - Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Darcy's Diary

My book club read two books this month, Pride and Prejudice and Mr. Darcy's Diary. I had read Pride and Prejudice before and I really liked it. While it is somewhat romantic, I would have to say it is one of the funniest books I have ever read. And I would not classify it as a romance.

I'm glad I read it again. I love the main character, Elizabeth Bennett, and I can totally identify with her. I won't give away any info here about the plot or character traits because I can't stand it when people spoil stuff for me. So, I'll just say that I love this book and I recommend it to everyone.
I also liked Mr. Darcy's Diary. I would sum it up with the word CUTE. As a Jane Austin fan I really enjoyed it, and I thought it was fun to see how someone else interpreted little things and went with it in another series of events of their own. I only recommend this book to those who have already read Pride and Prejudice. It's a fun,quick book.

I have wanted to read this book, but alas I have never thought of it while out looking for books. But of course I haven't been looking for books for some time. End of April baby!

I am a huge (unfortunately, that is literal) fan of Jane Austen. I'll have to check out that book. I too enjoy reading someone else's take on the characters in Pride & Prejudice. Have you read "Conviction: A Sequel to Pride & Prejudice?" It tells of life at Pemberly and Georgiana. It's a quick read and was pretty good. I'm reading Mr. Darcy Takes A Wife right now, I haven't quite made up my mind if I like it yet.
