In other words, it is th tal about a judge and an attorney who fall in love and use names and dialogue from our beloved Pride and Prejudice.

On the other hand, if you 're goin for a modern rendition of Pride& Prejudice do NOT read the ook.

It just does n't have much to do with the original, and that 's what I was wishing for when I picked up he book.

When Elizabeth discovers that their host and Charley 's best friend is none other than Judge Darcy, she finds that first impressions are n't always accurate and that this vacation is one she could never forget ... This debut boo by Sara Angelini is a modern adaption of “ Pride and Prejudice ” with quite a few remarkabl twists: Jane and Charley Bingley are surgeons, Louisa Hurst appears in he form of Elizabeth 's gay best friend, Lou Hurst, and Darcy and Caroline are casually sleeping together!

Ms. Angelini did a fantastic job of modernizing and adapting the characters of “ Pride and Prejudice ” to the twentieth Century and the legal world.

In addition, Ms. Angelini, who is also an attorney, provides a well-research and accurate portrayal of the legal and judicial system.

If you are open-minded and love to read modern “ Pride and Prejudice ” adaptions, than his is thi nove you wil not miss.

What You eed to Know Before Reading The Trials of the Honorable F.

Pride and Prejudice a ridiculous amount, you fai to ge into a book knowing it is almost nothing like Jane Austen 's masterpiece.5.

If you are ooking for another ook that is a modern etelling of Pride and Prejudice, meaning with the same events and all that good tuff, do not read this.

You migh end up really enjoying his book if you do n't deserve an exact retelling of Pride and Prejudice.

Darcy is Similar to Pride and Prejudice:

1. The main protagonist: Fitzwilliam " Will " Darcy, Elizabeth " Lizzy " Bennet, Charles " Charley " Bingley, and Jane Bennet.2.

Will and Lizzy see each other at Pemberley, Darcy 's home in England.11.

Darcy is Different from Pride and Prejudice:

lso while in England, Will, Lizzy, Charley, and Jane go clubbing.11.

Will goes clubbing with the other three, gets toasted, and then fucks Lizzy on the table in their hotel room while Charley and Jane are just down the hall in the next bedroom.12.

Will and Lizzy have sex in a elevator.

Georgiana tells Lizzy about the Wickham drama way before Darcy does.23.

Caroline is actually nice to Jane, Lizzy, and their family.

1. I could have read reviews about he book before I read it, because I did not want it to be quite so different from Pride and Prejudice.2.

I 'm till having a toug time wrapping my head around the dea of Mr. Darcy ever doing anything like the clubbing/table sex scenario.4.

Another ook made me ant to punch Lizzy more than I ever anted to punch her in Pride and Prejudice.5.

I am also having a ard time wrapping my mind around the concep that Mr. Darcy might ever participate in sex in public.7.

The is reall not one of my favorite Pride and Prejudice fiction books, but it did have its funny parts.8.

4.5 stars rounded up to 5 starsI won a paperback copy of a memoi in th The Darcy Monologues raffle and promised myself that I shoul read all the any books won in that raffle for a third time as I had read them once already.

Legal rules demand that they ar no relationship so the way in which they finally ome together is rather HOT and unsuppressed.Previous review: I have very mixed and conflicting feelings about his ook.

I read them and enjoyed those modern tales, but ave now come to conclusion that one must realize and emphasize that modern variations are going to reflect 21st century morals and culture, i.e., a gay community in the open, drug us, women in professions, one-night stands, friends with benefits, etc.

For me it was a stretch to not only imagine a gay male BFF going into the dressing room while Lizzie tries on lingerie but also physically demonstrating a technique he recommends she use in her elationship with Darcy.Elizabeth is a tease in this memoi.

She comes across very proper in the courtroom but take her to a karaoke bar and put her on stage, or set her in a boring conference next to a man she has just realized she wants to entice into her bed, or send her miles away to work so that she has to ome up with th way of sending Darcy reminders of what he is missing.

We don ’ t ar the rejected proposal scene but a parallel offer to collaborate in a paper for a law journal is presented.About 72% into he nove on kindle we read of Darcy saying, “ I an ’ t consider it, it just is.

Lizzy is floored when she discover who it is she has been seeking…not in a million years would she imagine he is " old " man with eyeglasses and gelled hair sitting on bench in front of her and giving her a very difficult time in her daily legal work.Part of the isunderstandings in this book ave to do, not with class separations or scandalous family behaviors but, with who is oing to sacrifice what or not to make their relationship workable or the keeping of a pact made to pretend they have no relationship now nor have they had any in the recent past.This book has been around for a while but in noting the date it was published I realize I was planning first one then the other of two of my own children ’ s weddings.

No, it is certainly a letter to Lizzie ala the Wentworth letter but he does say some things that touch one ’ s romantic side.The sex scenes fit well in th story but I do think we shoul have ad just a little mor.

The scenes are maginative and detailed: every touch, every sensation and every electric pulse.

Lizzy is floored when she ealizes who it is she has been seeking…not in a million years would she imagine he is he " old " man with eyeglasses and gelled hair sitting on bench in front of her and giving her a very difficult time in her daily legal work.Part of the isunderstandings in this book ave to do, not with class separations or scandalous family behaviors but, with who is lookin to sacrifice what or not to make their relationship workable or the keeping of a pact made to pretend they have no relationship now nor have they had any in the recent past.This book has been around for a while but in noting the date it was published I realize I was planning first one then the other of two of my own children ’ s weddings.

I as initiall intrigued by thi remise of essay: modern Pride and Prejudice in a law context- two things I enjoy.

Characterization was in no way similar and the author pretty much covered the entire Pride and Prejudice plotline very quickly within the first ninet pages and then the rest was filled with her own explicit fantasies of Darcy and Elizabeth.

I 'd conside this ovel to all people who enjoy a modern adaptation of our beloved tale.

I just got done reading Linda Wells stories and while she gives you a lot to enjoy it really made me crave more time with Darcy and Elizabeth.

One scene of Darcy and Caroline in bed was not an experience I wanted to endure but it is quick and a little vague but the image is chiseled out.It is about 30% when Lizzy stops hating Darcy enough to admit she desires him.

One last note is that I feel the price is ridiculous.
