Reviews of An Assembly Such as This

Overall customer rating: 5.000

If you like Jane Austen you will like Pamela Aidan. She has done a marvelous job continuing the feel of Jane Austen's original story, Pride and Prejudice. I have read many sequals of the story of the Darcys written by several different authors. They have all taken a different approach to the task of contining this story that no one seems to want to end. Keeping that in mind I have not been disappointed by any of them. Aidan has a writing style that is complete and leaves me wanting to read more of how she views the Darcy family and what she feels is the logical life they will lead in their own times.


Best of the Pride & Prejudice Spinoffs

by Cariola on Mar 29, 2008

Aidan's three-part series is more successful than most Jane Austen spinoffs. I found this first part charming, and the author sticks quite closely to the original, even borrowing some dialogue from Pride and Prejudice. Although it's intriguing to see the story from Darcy's point of view, the second novel, Duty and Desire, which focuses on the period after Elizabeth refuses his proposal and Darcy returns to Pemberly, does seem more out of tune with Austen's style.
