TEXT Ð These Three Remain Ó Pamela Aidan The exciting conclusion to the Fitzwilliam Darcy Gentleman trilogy recounts the climactic events of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice from its enigmatic hero's point of view One of the most beloved romantic heroes in all of literature Fitzwilliam Darcy remains an enigma even to Jane Austen's most devoted fans No longer With this concluding volume in the Fitzwilliam Darcy Gentleman trilogy novelist and Austen aficionada Pamela A I am really reviewing the entire trilogy since it is impossible to simply pick up one of these As a rendering of Darcy's life during Pride and Prejudice Aidan does very well when she sticks to the plot set forth in PP Her portrayal of Darcy's character and inner life and the fundamental changes in him after he is refused by Elizabeth are well written and do the character justice She also brings Georgiana to life very well giving her a deeper dimension PP does not allow and also does nicely with the additional views we have of the Bingleys and Charles' relationship with Darcy in particular However as Darcy disappears twice from the original story for fairly decent lengths of time after the Netherfield Ball until Rosings and then again after his disastrous proposal to Elizabeth until he sees her with the Gardiners at Pemberley Aidan felt the need to fill in the blanks with something of an adventure of his own This is by far the weakest part of the trilogy and takes up almost the entirety of the second installment Duty and Desire The intrigue seems forced and I think she would have done better to simply have portrayed the dangers of the typical social circles of the time rather than create this sensational diversion She gets back on track uickly though when Elizabeth re enters the scene and when Darcy sets off to find Lydia and Wickham and I found these sections in particular worthy imaginingsOverall the books are well worth any Austen lover's time but I found myself wishing she had cut out the odd intrigue storyline and then condensed the whole thing to one book I discovered this was originally self published so kudos to Aidan but I also wonder if it couldn't have used a firmer editing hand

Pamela Aidan Ó These Three Remain READER

These Three RemainEst by an old nemesis George Wickham Vividly capturing the colorful historical and political milieu of the Regency era Aidan writes in a style evocative of her literary progenitor but with a wit and humor very much her own While staying faithful to the people and events in Austen's original she adds her own fascinating cast of characters weaving a rich tapestry out of Darcy's past and present that will beguile his admirers anew This series made me gag Book 1 was alright largely a rehashing of the original story Her elizabeth was not not half as charming as austen's elizabeth This one is can't uite place it but something is not right Aidan retains all the original dialogue but her elizabeth is not the lizzy we all love and adore And gasp the extensive descriptions of his wardrobe and his ablutions and his breeches such useless details I skipped book 2 entirely at least after the first few chapters because it did not interest me It was also not relevant to the main storyline I suppose part of the purpose of book 2 apart from filling pages was to show his disillusionment with high society but that could have been done in a chapter or two The volume was largely superfluous Book 3 oorfff She made Darcy such a crybaby I understand the need to show his sensitive side but that could have been done without turning him into a pool of baby pink jell o And georgiana is so sweet she gave me a diabetic attack
