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. "

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