    July Tried to find Georgiana a house in London Went to a dinner Went to another dinner Bingley said he wanted to rent an estate in the country Pff He'll be leaving it in a few weeks Went to another dinner Decided to surprise Georgie in Ramsgate but oh my gosh I was the one who got surprised And a terrible surprise at that Wickham is on my black list forever August I did nothing interesting in August but still wrote many entriesSeptember So Bingley was serious about this estate in the country thing and I went with him to see Netherfield in Hertfordshire The neighbourhood sucks and the neighbours are tediousOctober Went to the Meryton assembly and nearly diedOF BOREDOM I hate the country Country folks are sosoARGH soI just can't even I'm so above them that I don't even know why I'm here Bingley got a new flirt Wow didn't take him long They almost made me dance with Elizabeth Bennet shudders I'm so way too good for her November Went to another horribly tedious party UGH THESE PEOPLE ARE SO BELOW ME That Lizzy Bennet is so smug She's actually a little bit pretty though Her eyes are uite fine Actually yeah she's passably good looking Her performance on the pianoforte is good though let's all admit it She is intelligent And witty Andcute I stared at her the whole time today OH GOD SHE CAME TO NETHERFIELD ELIZABEEETHHHHHHHHH Bingley hosted a ball today and I DANCED WITH ELIZABETH Wait WHAT THE HECK AM I DOING?? I can't be with Elizabeth I can't admire her Her mother is a harpy her youngest sister is a slut AND SHE HAS AN UNCLE IN CHEAPSIDE Bingley let's get out of here NOW Jane doesn't love you Listen to me WE NEED TO LEAVEDecember Pheewwwwww crisis averted Now let's forget Elizabeth Bennet Should be easy peasy lemon sueezy because a man of my standing could never become allied to such a family as hers Is Bingley still thinking about Jane? No right? I mean she was just his flirt She didn't expect anything from him Why should she? WE ARE SO MUCH ABOVE THEM Elizabeth Elizabeth ElizabethJanuary What is Elizabeth doingFebruary Is Bingley still thinking about Jane? No of course not HE NEEDS TO FORGET HER OKAY??? I miss Elizabeth's fine eyesApril ELIZABETH IS AT MY AUNT'S HOUSE I totally lied I HAVEN'T FORGOTTEN HER OOOOOOHHHH she looked at me today She must be SO happy to see me ME THE DARCY OF PEMBERLEY Who wouldn't want me around? She's probably expecting my proposal Probably has been expecting it for a loooonnggggg time I WILL DO IT TODAY I wonder how she'll say yes WWHHHAAAAAATTTTTT IN THE WORLD JUST HAPPENED???? SHE DARED TO REFUSE THE DARCY OF PEMBERLEY? I don't get it Her LOW connections My AWESOMELY HIGH connections Her STUPID family My prestigious one I LOVE HER AGAINST MY PRINCIPLES AND MY CHARACTER AND EVEN TOLD HER AS MUCH AND SHE REFUSES ME??OKAY NO I love Amanda Grange and so far have enjoyed every book by her that I've read I usually LOVE her take on Austen heroes But THIS WHAT WAS THIS??? Darcy was portrayed as the most pompous vain conceited being ever imagined He was as bad as Mr Collins When he wasn't saying how much better he was than everyone else he was either trying to convince himself that loving Elizabeth was a big no no or that Bingley and Jane could never happen And when it wasn't that it was listening to Caroline and not being annoyed by her AND TELLING HIS COUSIN FITZWILLIAM THAT SHE WAS AN ADMIRABLE WOMAN HE SHOULD CONSIDER MARRYING What on earth It could have been amusing had it not also been tediously filled with pointless dinners and walks around parks and if I hadn't set out reading this with the intention of falling for Mr Darcy in the first place This book gave me such a disgust of Darcy that I'm tempted to take back all I just wrote about him in my review of PP NO MORE SWOONY Do not talk to me of Darcy for now or I shall say something I regret I mean Caroline Bingley a woman worth marrying his cousin? Granted Caroline was hilarious in this book with her snarky little comments BUT DARCY IS SUPPOSED TO DISLIKE HER He didn't even see until almost the end that she was trying to win him and his Pemberley Not only was he super arrogant and a major dck head but he couldn't even see what was going on under his very nose half the time I'm sorry but this book just did not work It was boring and Darcy was seen in a truly awful light

    Mildly entertaining to PP fans in a couple of spots but not really worth reading I enjoyed one overheard conversation between Lady Catherine and Mr Collins and I enjoyed Col Fitzwilliam's reaction when Darcy describes the manner in which he proposed to Elizabeth essentially You said what to her?But the writing is terrible Shallow dull and repetitive I hope I never see the word satirically again It's not that great an adverb to begin with; why would you use it a dozen times in a short novel? And the author beats you over the head with recognizable phrases from PPThe diary framework was unrealistic and inconsistently crafted Some entries were written as if Darcy were recalling the day's events but others were written as if the action were happening real timeI was annoyed that the author went to the trouble of making Lydia Bennet practically malicious rather than only stupid and thoughtless

    I've read this for one of my classes Which is actually a sort of Jane Austen and Charlotte Brontë fan club Best class ever“Elizabeth Elizabeth Elizabeth”Chances are if Jane Austen is your goddess you'll probably read this reluctantly enjoy it and wrinkle your nose at it afterwards because of course nobody expects anyone to eual Jane Austen and mathematically every attempt to do so is bound to fail I recommend to dive into the book light heartedly and with light expectations In doing so I was indeed able to find it uite entertaining; there's no comparing it to the original but that is something I don't even need to spell out for you Mr Darcy's Diary is an innocent retelling that does no harm though it's just as true that it could have done so much good•My first complaint concerns the format The fact that the book is written as a diary only accomplished the task of making me wonder time and again who on earth would ever copy in his diary a letter he's about to send to a woman commenting on every single paragraph with such abundance of details and then have the audacity to go to bed saying he's too tired to neatly write a fair copy My friend Chiara who attends the aforementioned class with me just read what I wrote over my shoulder and gave her approval It's just it killed my suspension of disbelief I think no one would ever keep a diary this way •The other thing that in my opinion left a lot to be desired is the characterization If there was one truly interesting thing about re writing Pride and Prejudice from Darcy's POV it was the opportunity to dig deeper into the feelings that accompanied him throughout his growth as a person why I think that was entirely the point wasn't it? but I think Grange didn't portray let alone truly convey Darcy's development and crucial change of mind well enough Basically right before leaving Rosings he writes to Elizabeth that arrogant letter we all know then when he's with Bingley and Caroline again he hears her speak ill of Elizabeth and her family he gets kind of mad he changes his mind That's it His transformation felt too sudden and even though it's obvious that he was being a presumptuous ass not adeuately motivated Though it was so satisfying to have him admit he had been and still was inconsistent with himself Chiara's contribution again here •This is rather unimportant compared to my other points but Elizabeth was a completely secondary character Again I ascribe it to the drawbacks of the diaristic form and there's not really anything to be done about it➽ All in all I must say it was unexpectedly enjoyable even if only for allowing me to re experience the favourite moments of one of my all time favourite novels I think I'll also try out some of the other books in the Jane Austen Heroes series I'm especially curious about Wentworth's and Knightley's Also Edmund's doesn't sound bad at all though

    My Dear Readers It is with grave misfortune that I dissuade you from whatever excitement you may have upon learning of the existence of this novel Jane Austen the wonderful authoress that she is has created such a wealth of characters and a story so beloved that modern writers cannot help but continue to revisit the story and attempt to interpret it in a new way but to no avail Mr Darcy's Diary is a straight retelling of Pride and Prejudice even directly uoting the original during key points in the plot Grange has done a very admirable job of spinning the story from Darcy's point of view but she hasn't been able to do it in an interesting or original way Her efforts to recreate Darcy's formal and reserved personality within this diary as a novel format have resulted in a very bland and wooden book where every twist of the story is predictable Please take my assurance that it would be much entertaining to reread Austen's original yet again In short Grange's rendition of Mr Darcy's side of Pride and Prejudice never inflamed my passions And for all its formality in tone the book is so familiar that it can only cause a brief entertainment I'd recommend this book only to particular friends of the original story Kindest regards An Opinionated Lady

    Okay maybe AMAZING is a strong wordit's not like it's a timeless piece of literature but it was so great Like Mr Knightley's Diary it's so interesting to read the story from a different perspective Again I have to say that you should only read these books if you won't be offended that it's NOT Jane Austen I didn't find it to be a huge departure from the original work but it's clearly not AustenSo pretty much if you have a crush on Mr Darcy and want to solidify said ridiculous crush read this book You'll swoon

  6. Lady Gabriella of Awesomeness (SLOW) says:

    “In vain have I struggled It will not do My feelings will not be repressed You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you” Mrdarcy's diraies is an excellent read that gives us a brief glimpse into our favourite brooding hero's thoughts and his rich worldWith the Bennetts making only a few brief appearances along the way this book otherwisesolely revolves around Mrdarcy and his relationships with MrBingely his best friend Caroline his best friend's sister and finally bothhis sister Georgiana Mr WickhamI loved the waythe author actually took her readers back to the past to young Georgia's almost envelopment with her dear Wickhambefore gliding into the present while bewitching us with the futureThis book may have lacked the depth I expected Darcy's thoughts to haveBut nevertheless This book is an excellent read for ALL PP fan's craving for a Bit Lizzy and Darcy AFTERthe final proposal sceneYep You read me right This book has the longest epilogue I've ever been delighted to have readgoing far after THE END and into the HEA from where Miss Jane stopped hers RECOMMENDATION This book really deserves to be in your TBR ifyour an Austen fanOne tie read though mostly

    UGHI've said it before and I will say it again If there is anything PP related I will find it and read it I don't care if it's amazing or complete shit I will probably still end up reading itI was so freaking excited that I go Mr Darcy's Diary because I just love that freaking character Although not as much as my homegirl Elizabeth Bennet Now I'm kind of torn on how to write this review because even though I freaking love PP and I might have a slight obsession with it I didn't really like this book I tried I really did But the writing was so boring and repetitive Not even wine food or puppy snuggles could make this book likable to me I don't know it could be due to a mood or sleepiness or SOMETHING but I just didn't really like it I will of course try to reread this again later this year maybe? Maybe in a couple of years I feel like I owe it to my love for PP and I should try to see if I could end up liking it later in life I promise I will try to reread it guys I just have no idea if my opinion would changeI guess I'd just rather read the OG Pride and Prejudice than this

    If there was ever a he said book that you should read then this is it Fans of Jane Austen's timeless classic will fall in love with Darcy all over again when they read the inner most thoughts of a man whom the world sees as proud and self righteousAmanda Grange stays as close to Pride and Prejudice as possible in her re telling of the timeless classic There are enough similarities that I believe even Jane Austen herself would happily add this book to her collection I have read uite a few reviews that state this is nothing like the original and I think they have missed the whole point of the book It is not meant to be like the original or is it trying to be What this book gives us is an insight into Mr Darcy a deeper look at a man that has captured the hearts and minds of millions worldwide I have had this book in my collection for uite a few years I kept putting off reading it as I did not want to be disappointed if it fell short of the image of what kind of man I believe Mr Darcy to be It did not disappoint in fact it excelled all expectations Although the book is written in diary form you can easily connect to the characters It is a delight to read exactly what Mr Darcy thinks of all of the people in his acuaintance From the carefree and friendly manner of Mr Bingley to the ridiculous and improper Bennet family There is nothing about this book that I can fault and I hope that fans of Jane Austen will find as much pleasure in reading it as I have foundHighly recommended reading

    After reading Pamela Aiden's Fitzwilliam Darcy Gentleman trilogy a few months ago I found this to be merely a much simpler version Grange doesn't go much beyond the events we already know of from the original novel and Darcy himself doesn't seem to have much depth at all He switches from being determined to stop thinking about Elizabeth to suddenly proposing without almost any explanation at all His feelings seem to flip flop to uickly throughout the novel with no basis Overall I knew exactly what was going to happen there were no surprises Nothing happens to Darcy that we don't already know about to some degreeThe book was enjoyable for the story itself and of course I found myself smiling when Elizabeth finally accepted The glimpses of their life after marriage were cute too If you really want an in depth look at Darcy I recommend the Pamela Aiden trilogy Although it can be a little far fetched a times she adds a slew of new characters for Darcy to interact with and really shows the way his mind works

    Nothing spectacular just a retelling of Jane Austen's PP from Mr Darcy's perspective his diary There's a lot of I will pay Elizabeth no attentionYou do that I will enjoy seeing you try I did not miss Elizabeth at all I believe I scarcely thought of her half a dozen times all dayShould I count that as progress? Honestly I am not used to being so confused I never was before I met ElizabethYou are so doomedThere's also some of the following I am looking forward to this evening After dinner our true marriage will beginDarcy you dawgLike I said there's nothing spectacular or groundbreaking about this book It's uick It's easy It's relatively fun So there's that
