Mr. Darcy's intimate diary tells us of his entanglements with women, his dangerous friendship with Byron, his daily life in Georgian London, his mercurial mood swings calmed only by fisticuffs at Jackson's - and his vain struggles to conquer his longing for Elizabeth Bennet.

For the first time we discover what really happened between his sister and the dastardly Wickham. How did he distract his friend Bingley from pining for his beloved Jane? Why did he propose to another young woman? Only to his diary does he tell his true story. At last we see Darcy as he really is; and, beneath his polite facade, we find a sensitive, private and passionate man. Download and start listening now!

    " So, again, I have read something based only on the fact that it had something to do with one of Jane Austen's books. The two star rating is based on the fact that Maya Slater felt that Mr. Darcy needed to have sex with house maids and participate in two orgies. I also hated the diary format, to make it seem like it was a real journal Mr Darcy had to write about farming and what the sermon was about in church each Sunday, along with other details that added nothing to him as a person and just made the story drag out. I would have much preferred to just have a simple story told from his point of view that could flow from one important event to another and skip all the mundane bits of life. Also Georgiana seemed like a spoilt, sexually charged teenager (much like Kitty and Liddia). And I can't believe that Mr. Darcy did not know that Caroline was throwing herself at him at every opportunity. I finished the book, I don't feel like I wasted my time but I would not read it again and I would only recommend it to somebody who is obsessed with Jane Austen. "

    " I really liked this book. It is the Pride and Prejudice from his perspective. It gave me insight into some of his actions. The only part that I wasn't fond of was that it seems all the men of the time had some indiscretions with ladies of question (although Darcy & Bindley don't have any after their hearts are given to the Bennet sisters). The suprise is the editors note at the end...that there apparently was found a diary like this book and the wonder how Jane Austen knew the story of this family to write her book! Whether this is true or just speculation will forever be a mystery. If you love Pride and Prejudice you should read this book. "

    " i was kind of bored...sorry to say it but it's true. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Gina Ghidotti | 1/6/2014

    " Thought I would love this one since I love Pride and Prejudice. Apparently Mr. Darcy is not nearly as interesting from his own perspective. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leslie | 1/4/2014

    " Entertaining, despite the distractions of Mr. Darcy's disreputable acquaintance with Lord Byron. While it provides occupation for both Darcy and Bingley during their absences in Pride and Prejudice, it is hardly likely that such an upright young man as Slater portrays would follow Byron's whims and degenerate fancies. If Slater hoped to humanize Darcy, she didn't succeed. On the other hand, it's better than many of the Austen sequelae and imitators - which isn't difficult. "

    " Wow. Put this down after the second visit to the bordello. Picked it back up because it had to do with one my favorite heros and books of all time. It didn't reflect well on either. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nerissa | 12/21/2013

    " men can also be passionate, no matter how proud or irritable some of them are. "

    " I loved this book. Couldn't put it down. It is an easy read - only took me a few days. It fills in some of the blanks of the Pride and Prejudice story from Mr. Darcy's point of view. I recommend it for any P and P lovers! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Carolyn | 11/20/2013

    " Face it, not everyone can be Jane Austen-- and some people just shouldn't try. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 9/15/2013

    " I love Jane Austen re-tellings and continuations in all forms. Period. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katielin317 | 9/14/2013

    " Good book, but wouldn't read it again. Her writing style was a bit dry and not nearly as witty and energetic as Jane Austen's, but the idea of the book was certainly intriguing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Therese of the Rose | 5/5/2013

    " This is definitely a version of Darcy's story that is much more mature (which is why I ended up not finishing it in the end when I was younger). To be honest, I don't know if I'll ever try picking it up again. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sarah | 2/13/2013

    " Hated it. I would give negative stars if possible. Didn't think it was possible to absolutely ruin Mr Darcy. Read 10 pages and threw it down in disgust. Won't finish. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer Black | 7/23/2012

    " Nothing particularly new, and has it been a while since I read the book, or did they change he timeline a bit? "

    " I've read about 60 pages. Is not unreadable. I do not like Darcy womanizing and whoring though, even if it is realistic - maybe ... Caroline Bingley is depicted well, Lizzy also. "

    " Just an OK read for me... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sue | 4/28/2011

    " It was really cool, I was amazed on how it matched
    with the occurrences in the Pride and Prejudice,
    and how it made possible to know Mr. Darcy's thoughts
    during those times.. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 4/12/2011

    " Interesting twist on "Pride and Prejudice" from Darcy's point of view. "

    " The other side of Mr Darcy. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tara | 1/24/2011

    " I'm not going to like any "P&P from Darcy Point of View" genre book that has Mr. Darcy meeting up with "wenches" and having an orgy. That's SO not Mr. Darcy. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nerissa | 1/16/2011

    " This was sent to me by a friend. It is not very well-written, but it is compelling nonetheless. It is worth reading to the end if you are a fan of Pride and Prejudice. And that is all I'm going to say. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kelly | 6/15/2010

    " did not like the way she portrayed the characters, did not like rampant scenes of debauchery, did not like this book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 5/26/2010

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathy | 4/30/2010

    " Historical fiction that could be the real deal! I liked the period details of this book - stuff that Austen leaves out, such as wars and rulers. The last bit of the book tries to get us to believe that this really was the personal diary of the real-life Mr Darcy, but let's not fool ourselves. "
