The exciting conclusion to the Fitzwilliam Darcy Gentleman trilogy recounts the climactic events of Jane Austen's Pride These Three PDFEPUB or and Prejudice from its enigmatic hero's point of view One of the most beloved romantic heroes in all of literature Fitzwilliam Darcy remains an enigma even to Jane Austen's most devoted fans No longer With this concluding volume in the Fitzwilliam Darcy Gentleman trilogy novelist and Austen afi. I am really reviewing the entire trilogy since it is impossible to simply pick up one of these As a rendering of Darcy's life during Pride and Prejudice Aidan does very well when she sticks to the plot set forth in PP Her portrayal of Darcy's character and inner life and the fundamental changes in him after he is refused by Elizabeth are well written and do the character justice She also brings Georgiana to life very well giving her a deeper dimension PP does not allow and also does nicely with the additional views we have of the Bingleys and Charles' relationship with Darcy in particular However as Darcy disappears twice from the original story for fairly decent lengths of time after the Netherfield Ball until Rosings and then again after his disastrous proposal to Elizabeth until he sees her with the Gardiners at Pemberley Aidan felt the need to fill in the blanks with something of an adventure of his own This is by far the weakest part of the trilogy and takes up almost the entirety of the second installment Duty and Desire The intrigue seems forced and I think she would have done better to simply have portrayed the dangers of the typical social circles of the time rather than create this sensational diversion She gets back on track uickly though when Elizabeth re enters the scene and when Darcy sets off to find Lydia and Wickham and I found these sections in particular worthy imaginingsOverall the books are well worth any Austen lover's time but I found myself wishing she had cut out the odd intrigue storyline and then condensed the whole thing to one book I discovered this was originally self published so kudos to Aidan but I also wonder if it couldn't have used a firmer editing hand

These Three RemainTo the test by an old nemesis George Wickham Vividly capturing the colorful historical and political milieu of the Regency era Aidan writes in a style evocative of her literary progenitor but with a wit and humor very much her own While staying faithful to the people and events in Austen's original she adds her own fascinating cast of characters weaving a rich tapestry out of Darcy's past and present that will beguile his admirers an. Review December 2016 Still as great as I remember I do recommend skipping the parts that involved the peoplemystery Darcy had in book #2 They really don't add much to the story also I really just want Elizabeth to get to Pemberley already Original review August 2012 To her he was the last man; for him she seemed the only woman Could fate have fashioned a perfect twist or held him in any derision pg 148I wish I could put into words how much I adore this book I started reading all the Jane Austen's seuels and AU's and spin off's probably about five or six years ago and haven't stop since Some of them are good some are okay and some make you want to stab your eyes out with a fork at the careless regard done to these beloved characters But this one dear lord THIS BOOK remains my all time favorite of the bunch And when I say a bunch I mean it Told from Darcy's POV from his disastrous proposal at Kent to the redemption at Pemberley to the adventures with Wickham it follows the story of PP uite well but fleshes out Darcy's character in the best way possible I love seeing him grow from that proud haughty man at Rosings to the kind of man that will fish with Mr Gardiner because he is trying to be a humble human being to him letting Georginia grow and blossom because she is turning into a young lady to his hopes and dreams with Elizabeth maybe perhaps re wakening and him not knowing what to do with himself as a result It is all well done and I love this book then I ever could have imagined all those years ago when I picked it up A must read for any PP fan SeriouslyNote while this is the third in the trilogy please feel free to skip both one and two and just read this one The second novel is the worst as it takes place that winter Darcy and Elizabeth are apart and involves a murder Gothic mystery and no Elizabeth in sight all of which made me stop reading it halfway through and with no desire to go back The first one is good as it takes place from Darcy joining Bingley at Netherfield to Darcy's Elizabeth's initial meeting in Hertfordshire to the rest of autumn but it does not have the satisfying redemption and ending that this one has So if you only want to read one READ THIS ONE

Call me a purist When you have a classic like Pride and Prejudice and wonderfully complex characters in Elizabeth Bennett and Fitzwilliam Darcy you don't mess with it Unless your very intent is to mess with it ie Pride and Prejudice and Zombies haven't read it but sounds intriguingIf your stated purpose in writing is to tell the same story from a different point of view then tell the SAME STORY from a different point of view Obviously some gaps need to be filled in since there's much about Darcy's time spent that is unknown to Elizabeth in Pride and Prejudice But I agree with many of the other reviewers that I read Cut out the second book entirely and all related story lines cut the spy intrigue and edit down to just one volume Aidan did alright when she kept to the story but the characters seemed to become un Austenlike whenever she veered off into her own story line It's not that Aidan's side story was boring or badly written; I may have even enjoyed it had it been attached to any other story It just wasn't in keeping with Pride and PrejudiceI thought Aidan would at least expand at the end even Austen tells about Elizabeth at Pemberley her deepening intimacy with Georgiana the move of the Bingleys from Netherfield to Derbyshire etc If there was anything that I could want from Jane Austen's stories it is seeing of the characters together at the end But Aidan expands the middle instead If you're going to rewrite it give the people what the want and don't make a classic love story into a murder mystery spy action novel Granted it was a relatively small part of Aidan's story but it was such a glaring mistake to me that I can't help but allow that to taint my opinionOverall opinion of book three I loved a select few portions I liked much of it and I hated some of it I guess that averages to be about 3 starsOverall opinion of the whole series Book one should have been shortened and combined with a shortened version of book three book two left out entirely And it should have been extremely edited You don't need to expound on Darcy's emotional conflict fifteen times How annoyingly repetitive I don't care if it was self published it still needed editing Had Aidan done all that it could have been a five or at the very least a four starButtwo stars
