Review: My Own Mr. Darcy




About the book:


After being dragged to the 2005 movie Pride and Prejudice by her mother, sixteen-year-old Elizabeth’s life changes when Matthew Macfadyen’s Mr. Darcy appears on the screen. Lizzie falls hard and makes a promise to herself that she will settle for nothing less than her own Mr. Darcy. This ill-advised pledge threatens to ruin any chance of finding true love. During the six intervening years, she has refused to give any interested suitors a chance. They weren’t Mr. Darcy enough.


Coerced by her roommate, Elizabeth agrees to give the next interested guy ten dates before she dumps him. That guy is Chad, a kind and thoughtful science teacher and swim coach. While she’s dating Chad, her dream comes true in the form of a wealthy bookstore owner named Matt Dawson, who looks and acts like her Mr. Darcy. Of course she has to follow her dream. But as Elizabeth simultaneously dates a regular guy and the dazzling Mr. Dawson, she’s forced to re-evaluate what it was she loved about Mr. Darcy in the first place.


What I thought about the book:


I really loved this book and it one of the best contemporary romance book I have ever read. Since I'm a big fan of Pride and Prejudice and also Mr. Darcy this was something I knew that I would enjoy reading. The language in this book was well written and easy to read for someone that doesn't have English as it first language which is really good.


It is a clean romance book which makes the book even better since I sometimes think book that un-clean romance book can be a bit boring and have more focus on the un-clean than the beautiful story behind the book. The book is not only clean but it is funny and sometimes even predictable. That the book was predictable didn't bother me at all since it only took me a couple of hours to read it. 


I recommend this book to everyone who loves Pride and Prejudice and want to read a really great Austen-fanfiction because this is a book that will not disappont you, hopefully.


My grade: 5 out of 5
