Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman 3

September 7, 2008

So in These three remain I came back to the P&P story.

Mr. Darcy has given up his search for a wife and returned to London. But an annual duty is before him. He is to visit his aunt Lady Catherine de Bourgh in Kent with his cousin Fitzwilliam. There he met Elizabeth again and made his proposal.

In this third volume Pamela Aidan concentrates on Darcys change after seeing Elizabeth again and his changing. She tries to explain what he thinks, feels and why he acts in so different a way in Pemberley, how he acted concerning Lydia and Wickham. It’s an interesting view Pamela Aidan gives to her reader. She fills the story with other people known from the first two books, e.g. his valet Fletcher and his friend Dy. Dy is a very special figure, perhaps Pamela Aidan did too much in here. Or am I the only one to be reminded of a kind Lord Peter Wimsey? I’m still wondering about Georgiana, too. She’s not really the one explained in Jane Austen’s book. Of course, she’s not so shy with her brother but there is more that is changed for me. Her strength is very accentuated, esp. by Dy.

It is a really nice book and I loved to read it. (So I could have spared the second one.) To come back to Pemberley and the people of Longbourn and Netherfield was exciting and fun.
