Mr. Darcy's Diary presents the story of the unlikely courtship of Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy from Darcy's point of.
What this book gives us is an insight into Mr. Darcy, a deeper look at a man that has captured the hearts and minds of millions worldwide. I have had this book in my collection for quite a few years. I kept putting off reading it as I did not want to be disappointed if it fell short of the image of what kind of man I believe Mr. Darcy to be. It did not disappoint, in fact, it excelled all expectations.
Although the book is written in diary form, you can easily connect to the characters.
It is a delight to read exactly what Mr. Darcy thinks of all of the people in his acquaintance. From the carefree and friendly manner of Mr.
Bingley to the ridiculous and improper Bennet family. There is nothing about this book that I can fault and I hope that fans of Jane Austen will find as much pleasure in reading it as I have found. Highly recommended reading. View all 12 comments. Jan 15, G. Darcy's perspective his diary. There's a lot of: I will pay Elizabeth no more attention. You do that. I will enjoy seeing you try. I did not miss Elizabeth at all.
I believe I scarcely thought of her half a dozen times all day. Should I count that as progress? I am not used to being so confused. I never was, before I met Elizabeth. You are so doomed. There's also some of the following: I am looking forward to this evening.
After dinner, our true marriage will begin. Darcy, you dawg. Like I said, there's nothing spectacular or groundbreaking about this book. It's quick. It's easy. It's relatively fun. So there's that.

Feb 22, Indah Threez Lestari rated it really liked it Shelves: Tapi dari gaya bertuturnya, mungkin lebih baik novel ini bukan dalam bentuk diary, tapi hanya novel dengan POV orang pertama saja.
Bagi penggemar novel Pride and Prejudice , alur cerita novel ini bukan hal yang baru, dan endingnya juga bukan spoiler, berakhir dengan adegan yang umumnya ditunggu-tunggu para pembaca novel roman: Mbok ya jangan tegang gitu Mas Darcy Novel Mr. Darcy's Diary bukanlah cerita baru, boleh dibilang mirror-story dari masterpiece Jane Austen tersebut. Bedanya, novel ini bertutur dari sudut pandang Fitzwilliam Darcy.
Kapan dia mulai jatuh cinta pada Elizabeth Bennet, setelah di pertemuan pertama dengan entengnya bilang "She's tolerable, but not handsome enough to tempt me" yang membuat Lizzie ilfil tralala kepadanya sejak awal. Kalau menonton miniseri BBC nya mungkin bisa tertebak mulai kapan Mr Darcy mulai terpesona pada Lizzie Bennet, yang tampak pada tatapan matanya yang mengguncang iman itu setiap kali melihat Lizzie.
Tapi tetap saja, apa sih yang dia pikirkan? Aku sendiri bertanya-tanya, apa yang dirasakan Mr Darcy setiap kali memandang Lizzie Bennet? Because I think it was very important to Andrew Davies that Mr Darcy had the most enormous sex drive.
Gasps CF: And, um I think that came across really, really well with the acting. I really think it did. Thank you. At one point Andrew even wrote as a stage direction: Which bit was that? It's when Elizabeth's been walking across the country and bumps into him in the grounds in the early stages.
The bit where she's all muddy? And dishevelled. And sweaty? Was that a difficult bit to act?

You mean the erection? Awed whisper Yes. Um, well. Andrew also wrote that I don't propose that we should focus on it, and therefore no acting required in that department at least. Ups, melenceng deh Tapi tidak, tidak Yang ada hanyalah pergulatan batin antara tertarik setengah mati pada Lizzie, tapi ilfil setengah hidup pada orang-orang di sekeliling gadis itu: Mrs Bennett yang memburu calon mantu yang berharta wajar sih Mengikuti cerita dari sudut pandang Mr Darcy, aku sungguh sangat memahami sikap yang diambilnya di Hertfordshire.
Memasuki lingkungan baru, di mana masyarakatnya "norak" dan "vulgar" sebut saja kampungan , di mana para bujangan eligible dipandang dari penghasilannya dan diburu-buru sebagai calon mantu secara terbuka, bagaimana tidak ilfil dan bete? Belum bahan percakapannya yang tidak bermutu.
Pantas saja kalau Mr Darcy lebih memilih banyak diam dan hanya bergaul dengan orang-orang yang sudah dikenalnya dengan baik. Terus terang, mungkin di kampungku di Cirebon aku juga bisa jadi dianggap sombong seperti Mr Darcy, karena jarang gaul dan ngobrol dengan tetangga. Bukan apa-apa, habis kalau mendengarkan obrolan mereka, yang dibicarakan tidak mutu menurutku , sebagian besar malah gosip, baik gosip lokal maupun gosip interlokal artis selebriti whatever.
Lebih baik nggak usah ngobrol sekalian deh.
Jadi, sekagum apapun Mr Darcy terhadap Lizzie Bennet, satu-satunya gadis yang tidak terintimidasi olehnya dan tidak peduli pada kekayaannya yang disadarinya karena gadis itu tersinggung oleh komentarnya di pertemuan pertama mereka , ia sama sekali tak mau memikirkan kemungkinan untuk menjadikan Lizzie sebagai Mrs Darcy. Tapi meskipun demikian, ia cemas waktu mendengar kabar tentang lamaran Mr Collins kepada Lizzie lalu lega setelah tahu Lizzie menolaknya dan cemburu kalau melihat dan mendengar Lizzie dekat dengan laki-laki lain, terutama George Wickham!
Mr Darcy sendiri, seperti halnya para makhluk Mars lainnya, kurang sensitif terhadap perasaan perempuan. Ia tidak sadar kalau Caroline Bingley berminat menjadi the next Mrs Darcy , meski tanda-tandanya sudah tampak dari awal. Ia baru ngeh waktu Caroline mulai sengit mengejek dan menghina Lizzie. Ia juga begitu pede dan yakin lamaran orang yang berasal dari kalangan terhormat dan setaraf dirinya bakal langsung diterima oleh Lizzie yang berasal dari "kalangan rendah".
Ini ngelamar atau ngehina sih, Mas! Yakin jawabannya iya lagi! Sama aja kayak lamaran Mr Collins ini mah Sampai sini malah jadi ingat jawaban Mark Darcy waktu dituduh membawa lari tunangan Daniel Cleaver dan mematahkan hatinya, padahal yang terjadi sebaliknya. My wife. My heart. Eh, maaf ngelantur lagi. Sampai mana tadi? Oh, ya Peduli amat keluarga Lizzie macam apa, dia kan bukan nikah dengan keluarganya. Seperti kata lagunya Frank Sinatra: For nobody else give me a thrill With all your faults, I love you still It had to be you, wonderful you It had to be you Senangnya, melihat Mas Darcy akhirnya bisa tersenyum lepas seperti manusia biasa.
Um, buat yang penasaran kapan Mr. Darcy mulai jatuh cinta pada Lizzie, Lizzie juga menanyakan hal yang sama. Dan begini jawabannya: I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look, or the words, which laid the foundation.
It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew I had begun. Co cweet View all 27 comments. Jul 27, Tereza rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Pride and Prejudice Lovers. It makes the book so wonderful, and because it's from Darcy's perspective so the author adds wonderful scenes like the discovery of Wickham in Ramsgate, Lady Catherine's diatribe to Darcy after speaking with Elizabeth, and some very satisfying scenes that round out Austin's original epilogue.
Sep 05, Rebecca May rated it it was amazing Shelves: None of the others have his reputation for being immediately disliked by the heroine — except perhaps Colonel Brandon, but he was more ignored rather than disliked, and through no fault of his own. In any case, this Diary was a beautiful read, but more importantly it was fun. This is because we get to see the reasons and the man behind the snootiness.
Behind the cool exterior we see how much he enjoys the verbal sword-play, so different to the flattering, fawning annoyance he is usually subjected to by Miss Bingley. Furthermore he is ashamed to realize that his own aunt, despite being of a very high station, does not have the basic courtesy to be polite to guests in her own home.
We see that Mr Darcy is not uncaring — far from it — but simply has a set of very strict rules and values that he has gained through his sheltered upbringing. This is an incredibly touching beginning to the book. But Wickham is such a bastard. Oooh, I want to slap him. So bad. What do you mean her hem was dirty? Never mind… Damn I love her conversation.
How did I get in this room? Ah crap, she knows about Jane. But I'm perfect, and a perfect gentleman, of course. What a bitch.
Dammit, why does she keep turning up? Hey, she actually has some cool relatives! Hmm, I would never have guessed. WOAH, Elizabeth, why are you upset? Oooooooohhhhhhhhhhhh… jees, Wickham, stay out of my life!
Off I go. Bingley, you can totally marry Jane now, I was just kidding before. No, seriously. Besides, I want to see Elizabeth again. Oooh, hey Aunt, what are you doing here?
Mr. Darcy's Diary
She said yes! Heehee, her parents are so confused. Ah, well. Being married to Elizabeth is awesome. I get to sleep with her now too. Oh, and by the way, Georgiana, have you ever thought about getting together with Colonel Fitzwilliam?
I love being married! I love Elizabeth! I love my life! Vastly entertaining, beautiful, amazing, and perfectly capturing the essence of Mr Darcy. View all 19 comments. Mar 15, Zain Otoom rated it really liked it. Not bad at all! I was pleasantly surprised! Jul 03, Sophie rated it it was amazing Shelves: So nice to see this epic story from the dashing hero's point of view!! The struggles he went through with Wickham among many things gives him a whole new side which we don't see very much in the novel!
And the ending chapters of life after marriage were perfect; not silly and over the top, the right balance! Probably opened a door of possibilities to me. Feb 18, Emily rated it really liked it Shelves: I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked up this book.
I've seen a lot of both really positive and really negative reviews. I personally was very pleasantly surprised with it. As to whether someone will like it or not, I think it really boils down to your expectation.
We all have our own opinions, ideas, and expectations for exactly who each character is, how they should act or not act, and what is an acceptable outcome for them.
If the books lines up fairly well with your personal opinion of I wasn't sure what to expect when I picked up this book. If the books lines up fairly well with your personal opinion of the characters, it will likely be enjoyable. But that's such an individual qualification that it's impossible to make a blanket statement on whether or not someone else will really enjoy it like you do. I personally really enjoyed this book.
I loved getting some more insight into other characters and "watching" Pride and Prejudice from a different angle. For the most part, I thought the characters stayed true to my idea of who they are.
The writing is definitely not Jane Austen, but then, it's not supposed to be. I enjoyed "getting to know" Mr. Darcy better. It was fascinating to see his character grow through the book and to see the life and energy that Elizabeth gave to his life.
He stayed true to who I think he is - a gentleman raised and confined in a certain level of society that led to his pride, yet with a caring and tender nature for those close to him, someone who seems aloof but realizes the great need for laughter and fun to lighten one's life a little.
I felt like he changed his opinions a little too suddenly to fit his character he had several "lightbulb" moments but it wasn't major enough to hurt my enjoyment. My least favorite part in the movie was his first proposal to Elizabeth. It goes into much more detail than either the book or the movies and frankly, I thought it was horrible.
I know it's meant to be arrogant and proud, but I thought it was overdone here. Lady Catherine was all pomp and arrogance. Georgiana was a little more shy and timid than I imagine her to be, and the scene at the beginning was rather awkward and almost laughable to me. But her character really blossomed at the end. Wickham is just as base as ever, though I was a little surprised by how base and moral-less Lydia was shown to be. I had always seen her as more vain and naive.
I was most surprised by Anne de Bourgh - her character turned out quite different than I ever imagined or is ever shown in the movies, but in the end I enjoyed seeing her in a different light. Overall, I loved the book and seeing a beloved story from a different angle. View all 4 comments.

This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I wonder, sometimes, what is it about Jane Austen, and "Pride and Prejudice" in particular, that makes it such a favorite subject of fanfiction. I mean, I have heard of the awesome power of the BBC mini-series adaptation, but I've never really experienced it first hand.
A treat for Pride and Prejudice fans, this tells the story from Mr Darcy's point of view. Sensitive to the original but lots of fun, this is the tale behind the alpha male. For those of us who have read the original Pride and Prejudice dozens of times, like myself, MR.
At the same time, his perception of other characters changes - first of all of Elizabeth, but also of Caroline and Charles Bingley, and even of his cousin Anne.
I loved what Amanda Grange did with Anne. I found the book convincing from beginning to end and enjoyed reading it very much. Read some extracts from Darcy's Diary. This graceful imagining and sequel to Pride and Prejudice explains Darcy's moodiness and the difficulties of his reluctant relationship as he struggles to avoid falling in love with Miss Bennet.
Mr. Knightley’s Diary
Though seemingly stiff and stubborn at times, Darcy's words prove him also to be quite devoted and endearing — qualities that eventually win over Miss Bennet's heart.

Pride and Prejudice has inspired a large number of modern day sequels, the most successful of which focus on the rich, proud Mr.
