Darcy, hero of “Pride and Prejudice,” is created as a romantic hero of depth and distinction. Historically accurate and psychologically astute, Grange’s exploration of Darcy’s view of the world is a fascinating glimpse into the heart of a truly noble man.
Much to my enjoyment, I just finished “Pride and Prejudice” by Jane Austen. To my surprise and delight, there are a lot of sequels and alternate view books out there now.
I’ve picked up a few, but this one looks particularly good. To view the events of the story through the eyes of Fitzwilliam Darcy would be very interesting. He’s one of the most fascinating characters I’ve ever read about. Getting into his mind would not only be a challenge for the author, but if done well, would be a delight for the reader!
What are some classics you wished would continue on in sequels?
