Pride and Prejudice from Darcy's point of view (second in a trilogy).


I eagerly continue this trilogy. Poor, heartsick Darcy! This really does build up the stresses Darcy is going through; that he can't stop thinking about Elizabeth, even when he tells himself he should put her out of his mind. It also shows his attitude towards his class, and ways in which that gets shaken.

One of the things I've really liked about this trilogy so far is the good non-romantic relationships that are there as well as the whole Darcy/Elizabeth thing. Darcy's friendship with Bingley in the first book, his friendship with Colonel Fitzwilliam and Lord Brougham in this book, as well as his hugely important love for his sister Georgiana.
