Captain Tuttle’s #CBR4 Review #17 – His Good Opinion by Nancy Kelley
OK, now I’m done with the Austen additions. At least for now. This is another P&P told from Darcy’s point of view, but not as good as Pamela Aiden’s trilogy, in my humble opinion. The author does give a bit of backstory, starting with Darcy surprising Georgiana (and Wickham) at Ramsgate, which I liked. Although it would have been better if Darcy had just beat the shit of Wickham there & then. That would have made for some interesting bits in P&P, ret-con wise.
Anyway, this book once again traces P&P, only without as much humor as Aiden’s books, and considerably less detail. However, it was still the usual entertaining diversion, tailor made for Austenites, by Austenites. There’s not much else to say about it, outlining the plot would be pointless. Darcy starts out his usual haughty self, and learns to loosen up and earn Lizzie’s love.
Reading stories like this is like wearing comfy old slippers. I may not go back to them like I go back to the originals, but they’ll do when I’m tired of the same old stuff.
