Thumbs up Recommendation: Mr. Darcy's Diary by Amanda Grange

I know we just had a thread where several of our regulars said they can't get into Jane Austen. But I believe a few of us are Austen fans, so I thought I would throw this one out there.

Mr. Darcy's Diary is a retelling of the events from Pride and Prejudice from Mr. Darcy's point of view. I found I couldn't put it down. Grange's book is faithful to the events and dialogue of its source, and it duplicates the tone of Austen's book as well. I don't think an Austen fan would be able to pass this one up.

I don't think I've ever read Austen. If I have it was a long time ago, and not something I remember. I will note your recommendation down though incase I happen upon this one. Maybe I'll give it a shot and eventually make my way back to Austen.

I liked that one as well, Rudi! Another good one is a series of 3 books by Pamela Aiden that tells the story from Mr. Darcy's point of view. The middle one is kind of weird, but the first and last ones I really enjoyed.
