Now you've read all the "Bah Humbugs" reviews from the Janites and Purists. You've probably also read the "Wow" reviews. Take my advice and buy this book. Don't let the Negative reviews sway you. However, if you are a Jane Austen "Purist" forget it. This book was a lovely take on Darcy. Yes, he is more of a 20th century man, passionately in love with Lizzie, wanting to get her into bed but he is also a lonely man. How did he get that way? What are his thoughts? His upbringing from very strict, cold parents has a lot to do with his aloofness. Yes, I know Jane Austen didn't say his parents were cold fish, so again if you can't stand change, don't read this. If you are open to a new Darcy and love P & P, read it! I loved every minute of it, even when it deviated from Jane's version. Hey, any sequel that keeps Darcy and Lizzie going, is my kind of book! (Except Emma Tennant's).

A fabulous companion to Pride and Prejudice

Marjorie Fasman's 'Diary of...Darcy' masterfully completes a portrait of Darcy's character that allows us to understand his background, his inner dialogues, his motivations, and his actions. It stays true to Austen's original work, and builds on it both believably and realistically.The Diary begins when Darcy is only ten years old, before Georgianna has even been born, and traces events even further than Austen herself did--into the married lives of Elizabeth and Darcy.The Diary does a great job of revealing the story from Darcy's perspective--adding a richness and depth to my love of the P & P tale. I so loved this book that I read it straight through in one sitting--just couldn't put it down! That's probably my highest recommendation!

Ladies, You'll Place This One In Your Keeper Hall Of Fame!

If you love the novel "Pride & Prejudice", plus love its A & E series on video with Colin Firth, you will simply adore this newest addition to that heavenly constellation by Fasman. She was inspired to write Darcy's diary after seeing Firth play him and, boy, does it show! Wow! Fasman gives us Darcy's side to the whole story plus includes his life prior to meeting Elizabeth and their life after they are married. I was so "into" this diary that I spaced out reading the final 60 pages over 2 days because I couldn't stand finishing it! I only do this when I am head-over-heels with a book; I can't even remember the last time that happened, it was so long ago. Darcy's physically passionate longings and fulfillment are also portrayed along with a fully developed rationale for Darcy's pride-of-behavior. Fasman was a screenwriter up until 1945. She stopped writing then and THIS was her first effort, in 1998, after that long absence. All creative people should be lucky enough to experience this kind of "comeback". It is a beautifully bound and printed trade edition paperback with lovely cut-out figures of Darcy and Elizabeth on front and back covers. I don't recognize its small publisher though and, be warned, it took me 6 weeks to obtain it. Why this is such a hard-to-find book defies my comprehension. This should be in much wider distribution though because every woman in love with Colin Firth's portrayal of Darcy will want her own copy of this book. I think the only way I will be able to recover from finishing this book is to watch yet again the whole video series of Firth playing Darcy. Too bad I'm only allowed to give a 5 here; I'd love to give it a 10!


After I fell in love with Darcy (Colin Firth) in the TV version of Pride and Prejudice, I had to read the book. Again, I was enthralled with his character, his mysteriousness. What did he do when he went to London after Netherfield, what made him so proud and distainful? What were his thoughts as he sat silently, gazing at Lizzy? Read this book and find out! Georgiana and Darcy had everything to make them sociable and happy, but were they? You'll find out what made Georgiana so withdrawn, read about Darcy's childhood upbringing. This book also continues into Lizzy & Darcy's marriage showing a healthy relationship of love. Didn't we all wonder how it would work out? I highly recommend this book.

A Wonderful Reading Experience!

This is the best of all sequels to Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Believe me, I have read them ALL. Helen Fasman captures the character of Fitzwilliam Darcy and brings him to life. She was able to answer my questions about him, "How did he get like THAT, when he was really like THIS?" The story brought tears to my eyes and then absolute joy. One line in the book speaks out to me when Darcy says, "I am being rescued, Mrs. Reynolds, right here in Pemberley." I highly recommend this book and hope and pray that Helen Fasman writes a sequel to this sequel! In the meantime, I will be buying this book as gifts to my good friends. Must go now, have to start reading it all over again!
