Mr. Darcy’s Diary, by Amanda Grange

Ah, to be paid to write fanfic.

Jane Austen has experienced a resurgence of interest, and every possible mining of her intellectual property (particularly Pride and Prejudice and Emma, with occasional attempts to redeem Sense and Sensibility) seems to have been tried over the past few years. Thus one can achieve mdoest success by lifting the plot — and much of the dialogue — of Pride and Prejudice and changing the viewpoint character.

The best bits of this work were the ones copid verbatim from the original work, which is not wholly surprising. There’s not much new information, as such, in this book, and stylistically it’s nothing to write home about, but it was as good a way to kill time when I rad out of other books on a trip than anything else would be.

Oh, and one more quick note: more recently, Amanda Grange wrote Mr. Darcy, Vampyre. Trying to cater to every single trend simultaneously, are we?
