Very funny book! I like Jane Austen very much, so I'm one of the women who wish to be dating Mr. Darcy, above all after the BBC adaptation and the lake scene...
Even if the book is quite predictable from the beginning, I really enjoyed it.
I hope to take the "Jane Austen" tour myself, someday...

The reason I bought this book is that I was attracted by the title. I like Pride and Prejudice a lot. Mr. Darcy has been one of the character which impressed me much. It would be interesting to see how a modern woman met Mr. Darcy and the love story between them.
The story starts with a funny beginning which raised my expectation about this book. However, as the story goes along, I found it more predictable and did not have much surprises for me. The ending is a bit too common that I expected a more "unexpected" one. Quite disappointed indeed.

I read so many enthusiastic review of this book so I put it in my wish list. I thought I was lucky when I found it in an Oxfam shop in Portobello,but now I wish I read more carefully the reviews and the plot before buying it.
The idea of the book is nice but there was no need of the "magic", mister Darcy could be only a dream and really miss Steane as Jane Austen?
I felt so stupid reading it that I didn't even like the protagonist Emily.
There were so many cliché in this book that was like reading a bad resume of P&P!

E' piacevole condividere qualcosa con il personaggio principale di un libro, ed in questo caso io ed Emily condividiamo una grande passione per Jane Austen e la convinzione che Mr. Darcy sia l'uomo perfetto (soprattutto dopo una serie di appuntamenti tragici...). Ad ogni modo, Emily parte per il suo "Jane Austen tour", con la convinzione che Mr. Darcy esista. Credo che non abbia tutti i torti ma forse, diversamente da come la penso io, lei credi che Mr. Darcy debba essere proprio 'quel' Darcy del romanzo, e non una trasposizione più moderna di un uomo che ci piace molto :P E' una storia carina, che a tratti fa davvero molto ridere e in altri, con leggerezza, ci racconta qualcosa di noi, dei nostri sogni, delle nostre priorità. E soprattutto ci insegna che davvero l'orgoglio e il pregiudizio possono essere deleteri per i nostri rapporti con gli altri... molto carino davvero, e poi è bello avere dei lieto fine :D
