Publisher's Summary

What was Mr. Darcy’s life like before he met Elizabeth Bennet? Before he stepped onto the Pride and Prejudice stage at the Meryton assembly? More importantly, where is he and what is he doing all the time he’s absent from the page thereafter? And what is his relationship to a woman named Amelia? 

With Fitzwilliam Darcy in His Own Words, the iconic literary hero finally tells his own story, from the traumas of his early life to the consummation of his love for Elizabeth and everything in between. This is not a variation but a supplement to the original story, chronicled in Darcy’s point of view - a behind-the-scenes look at the things Jane Austen didn’t tell us. 

As it happens, Darcy’s journey was more tortuous than he let on, his happy ending with Elizabeth in jeopardy at every turn in his struggle between duty and his heart’s desire, between the suitable lady he has promised to marry and the woman he can't stop thinking about.

Fantastic compliment to the original story

I really loved listening to this perspective of the story we all know and love. I thought it was written beautifully and tastefully done.

I actually felt the original story ended too soon, so this version of his story gave a fitting ending on my opinion.

I didn’t initially like the narrators voice however he did a good job of it and it grew on me.

Great story

I really enjoyed this story. This had so much more happening than just the Canon story. This tells what happened before mr Darcy came to Netherfield and met Elizabeth. I also love the narrator and all the different voices. So good. I love listening to Mr Bennet :) great Jaff

Excellent

I loved the book and was anxiously awaiting the audiobook, especially when I found out Harry Frost would be doing the reading. He never disappoints. An excellent performance to accompany a fabulous book.
