      Remove the obstacles and you have a very different story outcome:I loved this story. Our P&P characters were the same just the juxtaposition of their circumstances was different and therefore, so to the end results.First Bingley had already taken Netherfield Park and without Darcy’s influence was able to establish his relationship with Jane without interference. Caroline objected greatly; however he never paid any attention to Caroline’s opinion on the matter. Darcy and Georgiana met Eli [...]

      This was a sweet story and I really enjoyed it! I am very impressed given the length - I don't usually like novellas as they often feel rushed, as there isn't enough time to develop the story or the characters, but this one really didn't feel rushed at all. I think the route the author decided to take the story down really worked for the length of it; the idea that they haven't met at Meryton, where Darcy famously insults Lizzy, means that they can get off to a better start. Also, as they hit it [...]

      This is a story of almost zero pride and no prejudice and then time compressed.In this version of P & P Mr. Darcy doesn't immediately join Bingley at Netherfield; misses the first assembly, can't influence Bingley's opinion, isn't introducced to Mr. Collins and has no preconceived notions of the Bennets.When he and Georgiana encounter Lizzy, Mr. Gardiner and the Gardiner children in the park everything accelerates quickly. Dinner at Darcy house, Lizzy joining the Darcy's in their carriage fo [...]

      A refreshing novellaFor the most part I loved this novella!! I just didn't like how fast it went and how short it was!! I loved how Ms Fairbanks was able to still allow both E&D's to remain true to their characters according to P&P, just quicken up the events a bit. I believe any JAFFer will enjoy this novella, though will also agree with me that it should have been longer!!!

      THE GENTLEMAN'S IMPERTINENT DAUGHTERFirst of all, for those who don't know, this is a novella length story which makes it perfect for a longer read that can still be devoured in one sitting (time constraints meant I had to spread it over two days, though). It's also a variation on the canon storyline for quite a bit of the story, though many of the elements are still there, just arranged differently. Bingley has leased Netherfield earlier and Darcy hasn't gone with him but remained in London wit [...]

      Short story (under 100 pages) of Darcy first meeting Elizabeth in London. She is visiting with the Gardiners after she turns down mr Collins and Darcy overhears her speaking to her aunt about her idea of love, her family, Bingley, Collins and everything in between. He first sees her twirling her cousins around a park with her hem 6 inches deep in mid and then sees her wit and hears her inner thoughts through eavesdropping. Georgiana quickly gets to know the ladies in the park and invites them ov [...]

      I liked how this started. He had time to watch her, and not say certain things. Oh Darcy, I may love you, but you are an ass Sir.Anyway they meet in a park. He never went with Bingley. They like each other. They meet again. Wickham does show up. But meeting at another place makes such a difference for many things.A short novella that actually made me like Darcy more. That goes for Lizzy too when I think of it. They were not so proud and prejudiced ;)But it did make me dislike her mother more, oh [...]

      Not enough impertinence Was a cute sweet short story. This author likes to make the best out of our beloved characters. So much so that there really is no angst and all problems are easily resolved. There is a little misunderstanding but again the characters reason it out and come to the correct conclusions. I personally like to see some more conflict and angst and that is why I gave only 3 stars.

    9. SusanFerkany on said:

      Quick, light, fun.Light work, starts off with a simple twist on how Elizabeth and Darcy meet. Could have turned sappy and trite but author does a good job moving the story along with just enough tension to keep a true P&P fan's interest.

    10. Victoria Kincaid on said:

      Very sweet and romantic. A what-if that shows the results of D and E meeting in London rather than Meryton -- with very different results.

    11. Abigail Bok on said:

      I wish I could praise and recommend this book, and I read it with an intention of doing so. I’m sorry to say it was not at all to my taste—which is not to say that it wouldn’t appeal to someone else!Though I’ve read a lot of Jane Austen fan fiction of one kind or another, this was the first “Pride and Prejudice variation” novel I have read, in which scenes and characters from the original are altered to suit the writer. I think that approach to JAFF is simply not for me; I prefer wor [...]

      A short story variation of Pride and Prejudice, occurring after Elizabeth has refused Mr. Collins and is visiting the Gardiners in London.The Darcys are strolling in Hyde Park where they encounter Elizabeth and the Gardiners, and Georgiana quickly gets to talk to them. They each make a good impression on each other but they have yet to meet each others families.

    13. Kim on said:

      Short, sweet and just lovely. This variation has Elizabeth and Darcy first meeting in London when Elizabeth is staying with the Gardiners. Very enjoyable, indeed.

    14. Chelsea on said:

      This was a really fun book by Rose Fairbanks and I enjoyed this twist in how things might have turned out if Elizabeth and Darcy had met away from Meryton and her mother and younger sisters. I also enjoyed the Georgiana in this story and seeing her with the Gardiner's getting along and talking about Derbyshire. I look forward to reading more by this author in the future.

    15. Tina on said:

      This was a really cute variation and I loved the beginning when they met.

      I received a copy of The Gentleman's Impertinent Daughter in exchange for an honest review. Anything you read here is solely my opinion based upon reading said book. This book is a Pride and Prejudice Variation. This is a story about Elizabeth, who is “The Gentleman's Impertinent Daughter.” This story is basically what would have happened if Darcy met Elizabeth in a personal setting instead of a ball. After the thwarted elopement scheme of Wickham's, Georgianna is very melancholy. Darcy take [...]

    17. LisaMontgomery on said:

      Despite some significant changes in the original plot line (like Mrs. Bennet shoving Lydia at Darcy) the story of Darcy and Elizabeth coming together is well done. Ms. Fairbanks offers tender moments to satisfy the Pride and Prejudice lovers. Even so,there were a couple of anachronisms that bothered me. The story begins on September 10, 1811, which is supposed to be after Michaelmas. According to , "Michaelmas /ˈmɪkəlməs/, the feast of Saint Michael the Archangel (also the Feast of Saints Mi [...]

    18. Elizabeth Bennet on said:

      I give this a four and a half star rating. I definitely would have liked it to be longer. The author did a great job at portraying both D&E. the two have great communication and behavior towards the other is one of affection and respect. The teasing they shared with the other was fun and Georgianna's match making was a side we rarely get to see of her. The villain's of the book are the usual and were put down before their scheme even got started. That was something I liked the most because s [...]

      Great, short little read!!Mrs. Fairbanks does an excellent job bringing a clean story to Darcy and Elizabeth! No Spoilers Here, Mrs. Fairbanks does a great job bringing the story out in our favorite characters of Pride and Prejudice. I can hear the different film lines of the different variations of Elizabeth Bennett throughout this read, and through the banter between the characters, that I think is what brought it all together! It was at times hard to fallow due to the page layout editing of w [...]

    20. Carol Perrin on said:

      Loved this story version of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Darcy and Georgiana's meeting of Elizabeth takes place in Hyde Park while in the company of her Aunt Gardiner, her nieces and nephews, and the children's nanny. Darcy is already drawn to Elizabeth just from hearing her laugh. He falls for her wit, kindness, and her caring for her nephew, Michael. He and Georgiana's hear her story about Netherfield and immediately want to know more. Dinner and an invitation to accompany him and Georgi [...]

    21. Louise on said:

      This wasn’t the best book about Elizabeth and Darcy, in my opinion. I found it a little disappointing.The beginning was a bit boring, but it got interesting pretty quick. And I loved the meeting between the two of them in the park instead of the ballroom. I also really loved to read from Georgiana’s Pov because I’ve always wanted to know what she thought of her brother. And speaking of Darcy, I loved this Darcy compared to the one from Pride and Prejudice because he was a totally different [...]

      great readVery sweet and cute book. I really enjoyed it. It's a little short but it is worth the time to read.

      Since I'm a fan of Pride and Prejudice, I thought I'd give this fan fic a shot. Interesting approach. Like some other reviews I read, I thought this started out strong and then was rushed.
