I went straight from Pride & Prejudice to Excessively Diverted and I have to say that it flowed very nicely together. I bought this after reading recommendations from others on Amazon and I'm happy to say that I do not regret it at all. I really enjoyed this book. The language, I felt, stayed fairly close to Austen and while I didn't care for what happened to some characters, I must admit it flowed exactly how I felt it would have after the events in P&P. By the middle of the book I couldn't put it down and ended up finishing it in one week. My only regret is reading a sequel that I enjoyed so much before reading the other one I bought. Everything will be down hill from here. The only thing that I didn't care for in the book was the quotes from P&P. I felt they came too often. I did like the quotes before the start of each chapter. I thought that was a nice way to allude to things. But the frequent references to them by the characters them selves, especially Darcy and Elizabeth, was repeated too often. The author did have several good lines of her own though. As I had done with P&P, I found myself pulling out a pen and underlining several sentences I liked, which, by my standards, bodes well for the author.

All in all, I would say if you want to take a chance and read a sequel, I would go with this one. Of course nothing is going to be as good as the original (book or author), but this gives it a far go at it. I, like many others, didn't want to finish P&P because we didn't want it to end. This is a nice incentive to do so since it will allow you another year with the Darcy's.

Shapiro's sequel to Jane Austen's P&P has several "interesting" diversions, especially those involving Lady Catherine's conversion. I love the fact that Col. Fitzwilliam and Anne are married, a fact I always assumed would happen. The author, generally, succeeds in capturing the language of the period, although it is so obvious that we no longer speak in such a manner as did Darcy and Elizabeth. That is a shame because the lack of dialogue in the original creates the story. It tells us things no narrator ever says about the characters. There are some errors in the characterization, but most readers will enjoy this extension of Austen most famous novel. It is not my favorite P & P sequel, but the reader will not feel cheated afterwards. A person should also look at Conviction, Pamela Aidan's triology, Darcy's Passions, or The Man Who Loved Jane Austen for satisfying "Austen" related pieces.

Actually, I would give this 4 1/2 stars if I could, but I thought I would give it the benefit of 5 stars since so many others so strongly disliked it.

I found it to be a pleasent read. Was it Jane Austen? No, but it came pretty close.

It was a little lighter in the narrative than Austen. Which made it a quicker read than Austen's works.

It might have touched on subjects in a minutely more up-to-date manner than Austen. But, none felt out of place or inappropriate.

I felt Juliette Shapiro did a good job of bringing together both the original Austen work and the A&E 6 hour mini-series. She says that this was one of her goals in writing the book. When I read the book, I could really imagine Colin Firth saying those lines as Mr. Darcy.

Maybe some of it was a little contrived. Mary, Kitty, Maria Lucas and Georgiana all find husbands by the end of the book. But, as a hopeless romantic, I liked that. The story was optimistic and the ending saw a change in attitude in a key character (Austen's plot style as I recall).

It wasn't as heavy as Austen. You knew you where reading another author's work. I still liked it and felt Jane Austen might have been happy with the working of the characters.

If you really want something that reads like Jane Austen, I would suggest "Sanditon". Jane actually wrote the first few chapters and the author of the rest of the book (who remains anonymous), does such a good job with the rest of the novel, that you really can't tell where Jane Austen left off and the new writer started. I would give that one 6 stars. It's like having another Austen novel on my shelf.

Of the Pride and Prejudice sequels I have read, this is one I would like to have on my bookshelf and I wouldn't feel disloyal to Jane by putting it next to her novels.

I was looking forward to this new Shapiro book as I so enjoyed reading Excessively Diverted, so much so, that I just re-read it in anticipation of her Mr Darcy's Decision. Imagine my disappointment, when UPS delivered the same book sans typos and original title-- but with improved cover art.

Still, I will say, since Excessively Diverted, is fresh in my mind, that I did very much enjoy this book. The story-line is compelling, and Shapiro creates believable new characters as well as writing credible Austen originals. It's a delightful page turner, that IF you do not all ready own Excessively Diverted, highly recommend the purchase of this sequel.

I purchased this book with the idea that continuing the read of Pride and Prejudice would be lovely. The problem with this novel is that it is written in an entirely different style than its predessor. In addition, the introduction to the story and characters by way of what occurred in the original work lasts well into the novel. (This becomes extremely tiresome for those of us who already know the story.)
I'd instead suggest reading "An Assembly Such as This" by Pamela Aidan. This retells the story of Pride and Prejudice from the point of view of Mr. Darcy. The style of writing is well matched, and you can feel the same sense of wit Jane Austen provided.

While die-hard Jane Austen fans may not like this sequel to Pride and Prejudice, I found it to be one of the better efforts I've read (and believe me, I've read quite a few). It doesn't live up to the original, but then what could? I think you will find yourself, if not excessively, at least reasonably diverted. I liked that the author allowed Elizabeth and Darcy's romance to blossom into the deeper, more mature love for each other that all devotees of Pride and Prejudice are left wishing for the main characters.
