Didn’t Like As Much as First
I read and enjoyed book one of this serialized Pride and Prejudice Jane Austen fanfiction. I was eagerly anticipating book 2. Unfortunately, I find myself a little disappointed in the book. There are times when Elizabeth just doesn’t seem like the one we know from canon. She seems to notice the way men look in a way that is not typical in a Regency. She decides to put herself firmly on the marriage mart while in London. She seems way too caught up the notion of rank as well as country vs. city people. Of course, under those comparisons, she finds herself wanting. Darcy, too, seems overly preoccupied with rank. I just found that off-putting for both of their characters. I like the addition of more Fitzwilliam cousins in this book. They each seem to have their own personality, which was fun. Even though I was disappointed by this installment, I am curious to see how the complete story wraps up in book three.
