NEW [Deber y deseo Fitzwilliam Darcy un caballero #2]
As much as I loved the first book in the series this one was a big disappointment The story picks up where Mr Darcy leaves Netherfield and he and Elizabeth do not meet again for some time This author s account of where he went and what he did strays very far from the tone and style of Austin s story Mr Darcy leaves to try and find a suitable wife He believes once he does he will forget Elizabeth Fair enough I liked that idea but where he oes and who he meets just Elena's Conquest gets strange He is involved a mystery complete with a sacrificed pig and a stolen baby Weird I never pictured Mr Darcy as a rich socialite by day and Sherlock Holmes by night To me the two do not fit Some reviewers expressed dissatisfaction with the second book in Aidan s trilogy and if they wished to experience interaction with Lizzy Bennett in it that would have led to disappointment As at least one other person noted Lizzy does not appear in person in this installment However in my opinion she was omnipresent in the narrative as Darcy constantly brought her to his and the reader s mind Much as he tried he could not shake her memory and if nothing else the book served to cement the affection and attraction Darcy inadvertently harbors for Lizzy As a hypothetical foray into theentleman s mind when he was so long absent from Meryton until he met up with Lizzy again at his exalted Aunt s home it wasn t every reader s cuppa but I enjoyed itAnother reviewer noted this was a bit of Gothic farce in the way of Northanger Abbey this did not turn me off as it did that reader It was a somewhat dark descent into the peculiar turns of human nature as well as an exploration of existential matters involving God s justice Also I happen to enjoy Gothic farce Darcy s continued outrage with Wickham s betrayal is mirrored by another not original to PP character s feelings and actions against her own one might call them abusive family The tale does twist down bizarre and even creepy alleys but why not To remonstrate with the author for such a departure when she already veers from Austen s canon by Sister of My Heart giving us theentleman s point of view which Austen never did as she truly followed the exhortation to write what she knew seems to me a bit absurd especially if those who uibble continued with the series or sought other works derivative of PPAnyway as a lover of Gothic page turners Duty and Desire satisfied me and I look forward to completing Aidan s trilogy soon Book 2 of the A novel of Fitzwilliam Darcy Gentleman trilogyThe second instalment on this trilogy enters before Christmas after the Netherfield party has left Darcy s involvement in the attempt to persuade Bingley not to return to Hertfordshire stood in King Alfred's Version of St. Augustine's Soliloquies great conflict with his later pronounced abhorrence of deceitDarcy s relationship with his sisterets the senter of attention
in the beginning and i adored this portray the beginning and I adored this portray Georgiana She was astute and caring One might expect Darcy s pining for Elizabeth to have been in the senter but I loved how it was done Subtle but I felt it made it even emotional You can feel the under currents rather than having it elaborated page after page Darcy did not learn his lesson before Hunsford but Georgiana was working on him while he sought entertainment to banish Elizabeth from his thoughts Visiting Norwycke Castle with wife hunting in mind he Rescuing Gus got a lot than he bargained for Taking aothic turn of events This was not Darcy s reatest moment in my opinion and a large lart of the book I could have easily foregone That said I must admit that the book did hold my attention from start to finish and I was hard pressed to put it down I must mention tho. Fitzwilliam Darcy regresa a su propiedad rural de Pemberley para pasar la Navidad con su hermana Georgiana El recuerdo de Elizabeth Bennet parece perseguirle a todas partes Distraído y distante Georgiana trata de averiguar ué le pasa Él le cuenta sus encuentros con Elizabeth pero también deja muy claro ue aparte de la opinión ue la joven pueda tener de él la posición soci.
Pamela Aidan ´ 9 summaryBook BELIEVE ME WHEN I TELL YOU WITH
100% CONFIDENCE THAT YOU DO NOT NEED TO READ THIS BOOK TO ENJOY OR STAY CONNECTED IN THISCONFIDENCE THAT YOU DO NOT NEED TO READ THIS BOOK TO ENJOY OR STAY CONNECTED IN THIS I had read similar comments to the one I just stated in other peoples reviews of this book but told myself I don t want to miss anything that might be important in the third book so without listening to others warnings I forged ahead and read Duty Desire and NOW understand why so many were urging me to skip it Let me explainThe novel starts off with a lot of what one would expect Christmas at Pemberly meeting Miss Georgiana Darcy and of course etting to see Darcy in his element working with his staff and tenants and Portrait of a Starter: An Unhidden Story going about the business that he was raised to do This was fascinating to read and revealed even about Mr Darcy and his family and friends After Christmas things take a turn and the novel takes on a new tenor It strikes out into the uncertain waters of a Gothic romance The creepy castle the strangeuests the bizarre supernatural element the even stranger How the West Was Lost: Fifty Years of Economic Folly--and the Stark Choices Ahead going ons will all have you wondering wait isn t this story supposed to be about Pride Prejudice not about a cheesy adaptation of Sherlock Darcy Holmes and his mystery solving valet side kick Dr Fletcher Watson Iuess Pamela Aidan had to do something with Darcy during this book to make it novel length Starting with Darcy s arrival at Norwyke Castle everything became overly farfetched and didn t seem to match up with the first book or the last It s almost as if the time in the castle was time spent in the Twilight Zone The author did say that this was a tribute to Jane Austen s own venture into
The Gothic Genre Northanger Abbey And Since I Haven TGothic enre Northanger Abbey and since I haven t that novel perhaps that is why I found the othic transition so painfulTo be fair to Miss Aidan I appreciate the huge undertaking of writing PP from Darcy s point of view and I understand that eventually the story would lead to the inevitable middle filler book that would be difficult for anyone to make an interesting read with Darcy and Elizabeth separated from each other I m totally okay with the fact that the Aidan decided to take some literary liberties with her writing and filled in Darcy s story with a few never told before plot details I also agreed with her thought process that Darcy would try and forget about Elizabeth by looking for a suitable wife for himself that made sense to me But what I don t understand is why Aiden strayed SO far from the feel and essence of PP to the point I had to remind myself that I wasn t reading Pride Prejudice Zombies This book takes a bizarre romp into the strange and not entirely realistic intersection between the ritty underworld of the British upper class circa 1810 and strange Irish occult practices performed by an Irish Revolutionary I finished this book out of faithful loyalty to reading the complete trilogy and those all too brief moments when Darcy reflected on his feelings for Elizabeth All else has already been forgotten as I try and forget Duty Desire Although I liked the first book this one strayed too far from the original subjects for me The only positive was that we do see how Darcy could come to the conclusion that character of a lady outweighs her position in life This is never entirely clear in the original and I found it to be the redeeming factor of this book This just made me appreciate Darcy as a man of morales He is resolute in his options but they served him well in this book The story did o a little astray and I wonder why it went that way It overall a ood read Now I understand what makes people call for a fatwaDo not read this I need to rinse my Kindle with Detto. La invitación de un viejo amigo suyo lord Sayre para pasar una semana en el castillo de Norwycke en donde se reunirán algunos de sus antiguos compañeros de estudios y varias damas entre las ue se encuentra lady Sylvanie hermanastra del anfitrión una hermosa y misteriosa mujer ue consigue desde el principio captar su interés Pero ¿conseguirá hacerle olvidar a su Elizabeth. Ugh that Elizabeth only appeared in this book in Mr Darcy s mindRecommend This is the second book in the Fitzwilliam Darcy Gentleman series by Pamela Aidan I have read other reviews on this website where people said to just skip this second book altogether and just read the third book The complaint is that this book has really nothing to do with Pride Prejudice It takes place during
the silent timesilent time PP while Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy are apart after he oes off to London with Bingley and before they meet up again at Rosings in the Spring I found it uite interesting and worth reading It fills in that Fallen Angel: The Passion of Fausto Coppi gap uite nicely and if nothing else it allows the reader to reallyet to know Mr Darcy s character by seeing him in the company of his old friends and family members some we know from PP and others that are created explicitly for this book If you ve ever wondered how Mr Darcy came to the point where he expresses his love for Elizabeth this will enlighten you I could have done without the last part of the book when he s at Norwycke Castle but I know it was meant to illustrate his character further as well as show how he s becoming aware that marriages of convenience do
"not make a happy life and perhaps that s not the direction he wants to o "make a happy life and perhaps that s not the direction he wants to o a ood book and uite enjoyable Well written but deeply DEEPLY weird So not at all what I would have expected from a Jane Austen pastiche The dip into Gothic romance felt bizarre and mismatched especially when compared to An Assembly Such As This which was pitch perfect Austen and I simply didn t believe that the character we were following in
the second half of the book was Fitzwilliam Darcy He seemed so different from Pride and Prejudicesecond half of the book was Fitzwilliam Darcy He seemed so different from Pride and Prejudice An Assembly Such As This and even the first half of Duty and Desire It s like the last two hundred pages were chopped off and an entirely different book lued onGood Lord I am deeply disappointed In Duty and Desire Pamela Aidan explores the silent time that Darcy absent from the narrative of Pride and Prejudice Darcy is in his element now amon Wow This book was so off the mark compared to the first in the series Really if you want to enjoy this seriesread the first and the third book but conveniently forget there was ever a second bookAside from Darcy s inability to forget Elizabeth and his treasuring of a bookmark Elizabeth had left in a novel she s been reading during her stay at Netherfield there is not much to recommend this second installment of the trilogy Darcy and his valet are like Batman and Robinsolving mysteries and saving ladies in distressplotting together and having witty chats Colonel Fitzwilliam comes off as pompous and a bit jealous of his older brother not at all the convivial fellow constructed by AustenDarcy leaves his sister shortly after Christmas to et over Elizabeth by actively hunting for a wife He chooses to do so at the aged castle in which an old school chum lives ambling away his fortune Darcy encounters a variety of women who all fall all over themselves to make him love them but he is entranced by a woman with a reat air of mystery about her Ultimately of course this woman turns out to be unsuitable for him in the extreme but only after Darcy acts in ways I can see Austen weeping over and the lady in uestion is exposed for her involvement in a truly treacherous schemeI finished this book out of faithful loyalty to reading the complete trilogy and those all to brief moments when Darcy reflected on his feelings for Elizabeth All else I would easily have passed by The third and final chapter of this trilogy has a reat deal to atone for to make me forget this.
