His Feelings Will Not Be RepressedOVERVIEWFull of ardent admiration and love but not the talent of conversing easily Mr Darcy doesn t always express himself well And even though he is haughty insulting and in need of a proper humbling Mr Darcy is one of the most iconic and beloved romantic heroes of all time In The Darcy Monologues an inspired collection of Austenesue authors have collaborated together to allow the brooding and reserved Mr Darcy to have his say United by their intimate knowledge and insightful understanding of Mr Darcy s character these fifteen accomplished Austenesue authors have composed well crafted and inventive tales that take place in a variety of time periods and situationsMY READING EXPERIENCEThis anthology is divided into two sections Regency and Other Eras There are eight Regency stories and seven Other Eras stories and all range from 15 to 35 pages in length In the Regency section several stories can be categorized as variations and vignettes but there is also two that are like seuels and one that is a mash up with a fairytale And while most of the stories in the Other Eras section take place in modern day there are three that take place in different time periods 1961 62 1943 and 1860Even though I was inclined to read these stories in a voracious and binge like manner I paced myself and only read a few stories in each sitting I did read all the stories in order but I m thinking it might be fun to mix it up next time and alternate between Regency and the Other Eras If I were to give a star rating for each individual story it would mostly be 45 and 5 stars across the board with only one or two being 4 starsMY ASSESSMENTI m blown away The anticipation for this collection has been building for months the hype is so much that I couldn t help but have raised expectations and yetI m still blown away I can t see how but this collection actually exceeded my high expectations The creativity and diversity of all these stories is utterly impressive It is impossible for me to choose a favorite or even five favorites There were stories that gave wonderful laughs some that exhibited beautifully tender scenes some that ratcheted up the angst a bit some that pulled at the heartstrings with sweet poignancy some that took us to a uniue setting and some that cranked up the heat The fact that each story is memorable and uniue truly makes this collection an outstanding featI think what I loved most about this collection is how well each author rendered Jane Austen s Mr Darcy Each portrayal of this illustrious man of conseuence was thoughtful sensitive and reverent These stories illustrated the many different facets of Mr Darcy s character at different moments in his journey both the negative and the positive Sometimes insufferable sometimes adorable but always irresistible These stories perfectly convey the reasons why Mr Darcy is a timeless romantic heroCONCLUSIONThe Darcy Monologues is a tremendously impressive and compelling tribute to Jane Austen s Mr Darcy Brava to Christina Boyd for her inspired decision to create this magnificent anthology and for assembling the remarkable talent of these fifteen skilled story tellers This whole project was extremely well done I can only hope that Ms Boyd will one day select another Austen character to have their say I wholeheartedly recommendNOTE With

The Darcy Monologues

The Darcy Monologues free read ✓ 106 Christina Boyd Ì 6 free download read Ü PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Ì Christina Boyd You must allow me to tell you For over two hundred years Jane Austen's Mr Darcy has captivated readers' imaginations as the ultimate catch Rich Powerful Noble Handsome And yet as Miss Austen's Pride and Prejudice is established through Elizabeth Bennet's fine eyes how are we to. This review was first published on Babblings of a Bookworm as part of the blog tour Pride Prejudice is very much a book written from Elizabeth s perspective We get the occasional glimpse into Darcy s thoughts and feelings but it s Lizzy that we journey along with In The Darcy Monologues edited by Christina Boyd 15 authors take on the task of giving us things from Darcy s point of view in an anthology of short stories Some of the stories pick up directly inafter Pride Prejudice while others transport us to another place and time Here s a uick rundown of the stories Death of a Batchelor by Caitlin Williams opens the book Be not afraid angst weenies at the title of this story nothing bad happens This story takes a look at the type of thoughts that Darcy may have been having as his marriage with Elizabeth Bennet approaches Considering the grave doubts he first had and the struggle he put himself through before proposing to her initially it wouldn t be unreasonable to suspect that Darcy would have some worries and lingering doubts while doing his best to endure the company of his future mother law and doing the social rounds in the wilds of Hertfordshire I thought this was a plausible look into what struggles Darcy might have had and I didn t like him any the less for the idea that he might still have some doubts intermingled with passionate regard and incredulity at his good fortune in securing the affections of the woman who he at one time despaired of This was such a fantastic story to start off the anthology with just so passionate and romanticThe first story was a tough act to follow but I also loved From the Ashes by J Marie Croft I ve read this author s work previously and I know how fond she is of wordplay and puns and there was plenty of this in this story This short story starts many years after the events of PP with Mr Darcy reminiscing He thinks back to the time directly after the Hunsford proposal and scornful refusal Darcy had decided that he needed to put his side of the story across to Miss Bennet and the letter he writes her is the precursor to the edited version that we have read in Pride Prejudice It is frank and frankly hilarious Ms Croft s take on Darcy has uite the sense of humour and speaks so little because he thinks a lot of things that are not prudent to be put into words It was a change of pace and style which I really enjoyedI had high hopes that I would enjoy If Only a Dream by Joana Starnes and as ever with this author I was not disappointed I was initially a little discombobulated as this story picks up at just about the same point as the previous story although this is a variation story rather than an alternate point of view Darcy is reeling after having his proposal so rudely dismissed and having delivered his letter to Miss Bennet he wants nothing than to leave Kent as soon as possible However Lady Catherine tries her hand at a little manipulation and betrayed by an over polished banister and a tumble down stairs Darcy finds himself unwillingly tied to Kent for a while longer He wants nothing than to avoid Elizabeth and she having read his letter has realised how mistaken she has been on a number of points I think most of us enjoy seeing poor Mr Darcy being made vulnerable and few do it so well as Joana Starnes This was a wonderful story Clandestiny by Karalynne Mackrory was a very fun read picking up at the Netherfield Ball with Darcy fighting against his attraction to the unsuitable Miss Bennet and she fighting with the moldings find themselves unexpectedly having an encounter which brings them to know each other better Again this was very romantic which I loveBearing in mind recent film releases The Beast of Pemberley by Melanie Stanford takes us on a timely journey into a fantasy land Here the Wizard Wickham has cursed the inhabitants of Pemberley Lumiere Cogsworth et al but the worst affected of them all is Mr Darcy Knowing that his disfigurement makes him an object of ridicule and pity the proud Darcy keeps to Pemberley but he keeps an eye on the local town with the help of his magical mirror which is how he comes to know and love Elizabeth She agrees to marry him to pay off her family s debts but there is no way she could come to love such a beast is thereWe move next to the meeting at Pemberley Mr Darcy described himself as A Resentful Man at Netherfield but when Elizabeth visits Pemberley and meets with him again she doesn t find him to be so Lory Lilian is known as the ueen of Hot Mush and this is a wonderful example of it So romantic Be still my beating heart In Terms of Perfect Composure by Susan Adriani is another excellent story full of romantic yearning Here we have Darcy getting some encouragement from the Gardiners to renew his suit and ending up back in Hertfordshire just in time to catch the end of Lady Catherine s visit to Elizabeth Dare he try to talk to her again when she seems so bent on avoiding him Without Affection by Jan Hahn is the last of the Regency stories and explores a real danger in those times the danger of dying in childbirth and how the fear of this could affect a relationship It s the type of story that will make you want to give Darcy a shake for how he must be making Elizabeth feel with his selfish behaviour but at the same time you have some sympathy for his fears Rest assured the desire to slap him will pass Hot for Teacher by Sara Angelini sees Mr Darcy as the principal of a school Ms Bennet as the art teacher he thinks slightingly of and George Wickham as his nemesis slash literature teacher slash resentful half brother The Darcy in this story was both obtuse and endearing and I enjoyed spending time in his head You Don t Know Me by Beau North takes us to the early 1960s in the USA I was a little surprised by this but I shouldn t have been as one of Ms North s previous works took us to the post WW2 period One thing I enjoy about such time travel is the chance to pick up some of the flavour of the era the space race and disc jockeys trying to push the boundaries of playing black music Reason to Hope by Jenetta James takes us back a little further to WW2 and to England Again this was a good chance to pick up some of the flavour of the era Elizabeth in this has a bit of a chip on her shoulder which can be hard to resolve in time to make us warm to a character in a short story but I thought Ms James did an excellent jobWe then take another jump in time and place and find ourselves in the old West and straight into an old fashioned ambush kidnapping disguises brothels and attempted rescue Pemberley by Stage by Natalie Richards was a very exciting read There is both pride and prejudice in this tale though not the sort we are used to Darcy Strikes Out by Sophia Rose moves us to modern day baseball in the US This is something I know zero about As is stated in the story Baseball is generally not a thing loved in the UK however though I had very little idea of what was going on at the beginning of the story which starts at a ball game I stuck with it and soon found myself in an understandable situation I thought this story neatly touched on many of the key points of PP The Ride Home by Ruth Phillips Oakland was my favourite of the other era reads It was just adorable Darcy is woken by a drunken Bingley in the middle of the night to drive to pick up Elizabeth who has had a bad date with a Mr Collins Darcy is reluctant to do so having been turned down without ceremony by her very recently but being a true gentleman he does so We meet a drunken Elizabeth having turned to martinis as a crutch to see her through her date and it turns out that not only is a drunken Elizabeth an affectionate Elizabeth but she is also an Elizabeth who is very forthcoming with her views and her secret fears of coming to love somebody who being rich may well leave her for supermodel Heidi Klum Elizabeth is very sweet and funny in this story and Mr Darcy unfailingly gentlemanly I Darcy by Karen M Cox pokes a little fun at our Mr Darcy William Darcy has been named after Fitzwilliam Darcy from the novel Pride Prejudice He is sick of comparisons and sick of seeing Mr Darcy being held up as the perfect man As time goes on and as he gets off on the wrong foot with Lynley he starts to consider and refine his views and so does she As Lynley says Mr Darcy isn t perfect just forgiven This story which takes a look at the character of Darcy and of the lessons of PP was a wonderful way to end the anthologyThis anthology was an excellent collection of stories You d definitely need to have read Pride Prejudice at least once to understand some of the stories particularly some of the Regency set ones as they assume knowledge of what is going on There are some instances of bad language but not much and a little sex but nothing at all graphic On the whole I probably enjoyed the Regency stories a little as there was just so much romance and yearning sigh I thought the standard of the stories was very high four and five star stories definitely So on balance it gets a 4 star rating from me and I d recommend itI d like to thank Christina Boyd and

Christina Boyd maven of The uill Ink has come up with a rich multi course feast for lovers of all things Austenesue The Darcy Monologues brings together fifteen of the hottest authors of Jane Austen fan fiction writing today The point of the collection is to take a gander at what Pride and Prejudice s story might look like when seen from the hero Fitzwilliam Darcy s point of view It is clearly pitched toward lovers of PP anyone who hasn t read Jane Austen s classic novel should be warned that in many cases if you lack the background of the original the situations and characters in these little nuggets of romantic goodness might be bewildering to you Those of you who have read PP dive on inThe book is divided roughly in half between stories set in Jane Austen s lifetime and stories set in other eras About half of the period tales start at the point in the narrative when Elizabeth Bennet has rejected Darcy s marriage proposal at Hunsford Parsonage So we get a series of variations on the angry resentful Darcy who slowly learns to appreciate Elizabeth s criticisms of his character and manners before working toward reconciliation It s a natural place to start a short story but I found myself taking pleasure in the ones that took their material a little farther afield I was charmed by Melanie Stanford s Beast of Pemberley which weaves a mythic fairy tale out of the warp of PP and weft of Beauty and the Beast The opening story in the book Caitlin Williams s Death of a Bachelor takes us on a slightly warm but not pornographic journey through the happy couple s wedding night it was vividly realized and cleverly conceived I also found Jan Hahn s story Without Affection very touching it focuses on the early years of the marriage but sees it through a frame set fifty years on And Karalynne Mackrory s Clandestiny gives us a warmer hearted thoughtful Elizabeth and shows us how the same words when spoken in a different tone can be understood very differently I appreciated the deftness and the wisdom The stories set in other eras allow for greater reshuffling of plot and characters and personally I found unalloyed delight in these pages I am often a stickler for historical accuracy and word choice in period Austenesue fiction so I m easier to please when we escape the Regency plus I miss Austen s sardonic narrative voice in most period tales Here we find the characters acting out their destinies in the 1860s 1940s 1960s and a variety of unspecified present days Darcy is a Boston Brahmin attorney headed for post Gold Rush San Francisco a school principal a pro baseball player and most often a mogul with a successful family business Each incarnation allows us to see a different facet of his character as well as presenting us with a spectrum of Elizabeths all alluring all capable but with a range of maturity levelsThere s something here for every taste Ruth Phillips Oakland s insanely inebriated Elizabeth in The Ride Home stepped a little outside the pale of Austen variation for me but I adored the resourceful courageous heroine of Natalie Richards s Pemberley by Stage a true Western adventure yarn I also found myself attaching to the Darcy and Elizabeth of Karen M Cox s I Darcy they were both humble and willing to change and the story has a nifty meta touch with their respective interpretations of Pride and Prejudice being integral to their character development Cox s tale seemed truest to the spirit of the original Farther removed from PP but especially delightful reading for me were You Don t Know Me by Beau North and Darcy Strikes Out by Sophia Rose Beau North has long since earned my respect for her impeccable period re creations and deep characters she doesn t disappoint with her story of reconciliation across religious boundaries her mixture of darkness and light And Sophia Rose has a beautiful gift for creating natural feeling characters and tends to incorporate into her stories people with physical challenges in a way that is profoundly humane I love reading anything that comes from these two pens The Darcy Monologues will give any Austen lover hours of pleasure as they luxuriate in these inventive touching exciting glimpses into the world from Mr Darcy s point of view I was given access to an advance electronic copy in exchange for an honest review
