Finally finished the third in the Darcy trilogy that I’ve been reading, a take off of Jane Austen’s “Pride and Prejudice.” I can recommend books one and three and urge people to skip book two. Sure, some characters from book two are mentioned in book three without going into details as to why they are so nefarious, but since I really only cared about the Darcy/Elizabeth plot, I pretty much skipped over the rest of that stuff.
Can I truly recommend the books though? I don’t know. Book two was so off-putting that it has tarnished my opinion of the trilogy as a whole. I do have to say that I did enjoy the latter 1/3 of the third book (when Darcy finds Wickham and makes things right for Lydia and the Bennet family).
I think I’ll just stick to my Colin Firth version from now on when I need a lengthy Darcy fix. And the Keira Knightley version when I want a quick fix.
