One thought on “The Last Man in the World

  1. Laurel

    This Pride and Prejudice variation asks readers What if Elizabeth Bennet had accepted Mr Darcy s first proposal After reading this question in the book s description my first reaction was, ACK, why would she Like the two other novels by this author that I have read, the story begins on familiar ground at a certain point in Austen s novel and then quickly takes a left turn changing the course of the plot and the characters lives In this case it starts at a very critical moment, the first proposal [...]

  2. Abbi

    A friend lent me two of these books the other was From Lambton to Longbourn , gushing about how incredible they were and how she couldn t put them down I admit I was very excited about them I love what if premises and thought that the ideas had really great promise at least from what was written on the back of the book I was very stunned as I read to discover how out of character Elizabeth and Darcy were Elizabeth was no longer the witty, intelligent young woman she was in Austen s novel instead [...]

  3. Leslie

    It took me two pages to realize that this is not for me It seems every p p sequel I have piled up to give myself for Christmas is garbage I must be the only person on the planet who is not at all interested in Darcy and Lizzie s sex lives You see all those classics on my booklist There s a reason for that Modern writing is 99% garbage I think I ll go pile up some Dumas and Trollope and dive in till I m up to my neck in comfort It s a good thing I don t drink cos this crappy book would drive me t [...]

  4. Sandra

    Whoa So not like the characters at the beginning of the book If you can imagine things happening the way they did though, their lives filled with much misundersranding I actually wept several times during reading this When there was about to be a moment of tenderness, then it the misunderstandings happened over and over again Will my lovers ever connect and realize the love for each other YES

  5. Misty

    Edit Read this for the first time in Juned then again after I wrote my review in August.Edit 2 Just read this again It s the beginning of November Appears every 2 months reread Every time, I see these HUGE flaws, and every time I just don t give a teeny, tiny fuck This review turned out super short There are things I thought I wanted to say, warnings I wanted to give, but nope This is it If you like Jane Austen, romance, or butterflies in stomach, pick this up I think it should be standard pract [...]

  6. Nonky

    This is the most commercially romance novel of the PP variations It shows the fallout of Darcy s first proposal as a marriage that Elizabeth has to agree to in order to save her reputation She arrives at Pemberley on the first page, hating her new husband and feeling desperately alone There was quite a bit of sex, but none of it overly graphic It was strictly fade the fireplace scenes In the beginning, Elizabeth is determined to do her wifely duty but does not enjoy Darcy s attentions Later, as [...]

  7. Meredith (Austenesque Reviews)

    Mr Fitzwilliam Darcy, originally published as The Last Man in the World in 2007, is an engaging and clever variation of Pride and Prejudice If you have not yet had the pleasure of encountering this series, The Pemberley Variations, by Abigail Reynolds, it is collection of Pride and Prejudice re tellings that asks the question what if In these variations we see how one small change in the plot can alter the course of Pride and Prejudice This is one of my favorite variations by Abigail Reynolds, I [...]

    Deliciously angsty It literally hurt my chest to read some of the parts It s a little Wuthering Heights Pride and Prejudice Finished in ONE SITTING Forgive me if I m a little incoherent Ummm.overall, predictable, because of course we know the outcome, but still very enjoyable It is like a favorite chick flick feel good movie U know there s gonna b a happy ending, but u still like torturing urself till the last possible moment Maybe it s my penchant for massochism Lol Anyways, totally recommend T [...]

  9. Shala K.

    I continue to enjoy this series of variations on Pride and Prejudice this one, which explores what would have happened if Elizabeth had accepted Darcy s original proposal, is predictably the saddest of the bunch, but it also offers the most in terms of emotional range The others are a bit one note, or I suppose, two note in that Elizabeth and Darcy are either passionately ignoring the proprieties or having fights This one does a better job of capturing the ambiguous pain of being trapped in a ma [...]

  10. Georgiana 1792

    Non mi aspettavo di essere cos coinvolta da questo libro Spesso mi sono anche commossa la seconda Pemberley Variation di Abigail Reynolds che ho letto, ma la prima To Conquer Mr Darcy o Impulse and Initiative non mi aveva fatto questo effetto.I primi capitoli sono divertimento allo stato puro immaginatevi cosa sarebbe successo se Mr Darcy al colmo del suo orgoglio e della sua arroganza non avesse atteso una risposta da parte di Elizabeth alla sua proposta di matrimonio, ma, sicuro che nessuna do [...]

    Review originally posted on Diary of an EccentricHer eyes locked with her husband s again I intend to put this knowledge to good use by waiting until he is deep in a book to confess any sins I have committed Then I will have the pleasure of a clean conscience, and he will be none the wiser Bingley said, An excellent plan Upon my honour, when Darcy is reading, Bonaparte and all his army could come charging through with sabres drawn, and he would take no notice The above quote about Mr Darcy certa [...]

  12. Maria

    This novel is part of The Pemberley Variations Series and it belongs to what if stories The main question of this one is what if Elizabeth had accepted to marry Mr Darcy against her will The plot begins with Elizabeth visiting Charlotte and Mr Collins at Husford While she walks through the gardens she comes across Darcy who, after a brief chat, asks her to marry him and kisses her without waiting for her answer Startled by his behaviour, Elizabeth is resolved to reproach Mr Darcy but, since Colo [...]

  13. Courtney Long

    What a perfectly horrid book.Maybe I m being unfair It s really my fault for even picking up another Pride and Prejudice continuation expansion novel Out of the five or six I ve picked up now, I m only even sort of enjoyed one No one can write Jane Austen like Jane Austen, so why do I keep trying I knew I was going to hate this novel, which explores the What If scenario of Elizabeth accepting Darcy s first proposal, from the very first page On this first page, Lizzy dutifully smiles at Darcy and [...]

  14. J. W. Garrett

    Agony, despair, despondent, beloved characters drudge toward their HEAThis is a What If by Abigail Reynolds where Darcy ardently kisses Elizabeth during his disastrous proposal Before she could respond refuse they were seen, thus compromising her into a hasty marriage This story was painful to read as misunderstanding after misunderstanding kept our characters from discovering the love we knew was somewhere locked inside them trying to fight its way to the surface only to be smashed down by ange [...]

  15. Christina

    I was first introduced to The Last Man in the World when a friend of mine found it online, printed the entire story, and gave it to me as a present She knew how much I loved Pride and Prejudice, and her gift quickly fueled my thirst for pride, prejudice.Somewhere in between moving bedrooms two times, pages out of my printed copy were lost, but I quickly found Reynolds story, as well as her other Pride and Prejudice variations, online and through the printed copy away Then, almost a month later [...]

  16. Kristian

    This book, as with most of Renyolds books, fills a very specific niche in the literature industry It a Pride Prejudice related book, specifically a sequel Elizabeth Bennett has often been called one of the most delightful creatures in prose, and certainly it is true that people want to read all about her An entire sub genre of Austen related books has sprung up Whether you call it trash, fan fiction or love it to death, it is important to look at Renyolds book in context of this sub genre Its no [...]

  17. Lady Wesley

    This Pemberley Variation was 8.99, but I just bought it for 1.99, which is about the most that I would spend on a work of PP fan fiction and only because Laurel at austenprose liked it We shall see Thoughts after readingI enjoyed this book The author has a very deft feel for the language of the times, and this is a clever what if variation on PP I will probably read other titles by Abigail Reynolds.

  18. Matilda

    I just spent the afternoon reading At first I wasn t convinced, but then I was so taken by Darcy and Lizzie, and all that when wrong, and all the feelings A really lovely and engaging read

  19. EM Clark

    I think I read this before, maybe But even if I did, I still truly enjoyed it this time I also cried, which NEVER happens, so there is that There are many variations with this basic premise, Elizabeth marrying Darcy against her desires, but this is a definite favorite There is a painful truth present here, about how they would have reached mutual affection and appreciation without the canon events at Hunsford, without delving into absolutely gut wrenching unhappiness and eventual ruin of any pos [...]

    Un one shot nocturne Bon, il y a bien eu quelques moments auxquels je me suis dit ils ne vont pas ENCORE partir sur un quiproquo mais a reste une super lecture qui me para t bien restituer le caract re de nos h ros

  21. Sheila Majczan

    After reading all the other reviews I would like to point out that some of the reviews are repeats so if you are looking at the number of stars don t be fooled Secondly, I read this book as The Last Man in the World, shortly after it was published, and have re read it at least two other times The reason for not posting a review earlier is that I only recently retired and now have time to devote to posting reviews I wanted to re read this one b c in reading other reviews many claim this one is th [...]

    Merlin, celui ci je l attendais Ce n est pas nouveau, je suis fan de Jane Austen et j adore lire des d riv s autour des quelques romans qu elle nous a laiss Donc oui, je les connais par coeur, oui en g n ral on revit la m me histoire et oui c est en parti pour cela que j adore a Il s agit ici d une r criture un peu diff rente car ce n est pas le moins de vu d un autre personnage ou l histoire d un personnage secondaire de l intrigue principal mais bien une autre histoire Un Et Si Nous retrouvons [...]

  23. Ceri

    This is another of Abigail Reynold s Pemberley Variations books, which looks at what might have happened if something in Pride and Prejudice had been different The what if here was what if Lizzy had no choice in accepting Darcy s first proposal This book starts around the time that Lizzy is visiting Charlotte in Kent in PP In one of her rambles round the area she meets Mr Darcy and he proposes to her in a similarly offensive manner to PP He assumes she will accept and kisses her and they are obs [...]

  24. Barb

    I decided to reread this title after giving it 3 stars in 2010 This was probably one of the very first JA FanFic I ever read I loved PP and I don t think I understood the concept of variations when I first read this Rereading it now gives me the chance to change my rating In this story, Darcy has proposed to Elizabeth and then kissed her in plain sight of Colonel Fitzwilliam and a few others She did not have a chance to answer, but must marry to prevent a scandal Truly, in this variation there i [...]

    I saw a conversation on twitter a while back between some friends, and they were discussing a scene in The Last Man in the World by Abigail Reynolds I had read the book a few years back, and I couldn t remember the scene So I thought, wow, I really should re read it, and I did In this Pride and Prejudice variationwhat if, Elizabeth is compromised by Mr Darcy during his proposal at Hunsford Assuming Elizabeth will consent to the marriage Darcy kisses her before she has a chance to answer Just at [...]

  26. Jennifer Gentry

    First of all, I want to make quite clear at the beginning of my review that if you are looking for a clean Austen variation or continuation one without foul language or sexual content of any kind , then this is NOT the book for you This is my biggest reason for giving it only one star If it had not included taking the Lord s name in vain something that, as a Christian, I absolutely detest and some sexual content, I would have given it at least 3 4 stars I read a few reviews before downloading th [...]

  27. Linda

    I have read several fan fiction sequels to Pride and Prejudice, telling us what happened after the wedding of Darcy and Elizabeth, but this is the first What If scenario I have perused In general, I think Ms Reynolds did a creditable job, starting from the premise that Elizabeth was a reluctant bride, feeling that Mr Darcy had compromised her with a kiss in public and that therefore she was forced by the standards of 19th century England to accept his suit or be disgraced Most of the development [...]

  28. Meredith (Austenesque Reviews)

    This story will take you on an emotional rollar coaster This is one of the many Pride and Prejudice possibilities, the author basically changes SOME of the plot of Jane Austen s beloved Pride and Prejudice I liked this one because it was so down to earth and realistic The sceanrio Darcy just proposed to Elizabeth for the first time, she is about to refuse him and they get interupted by Col Fitzwilliam She never gets around to rejecting him and ends up marrying him because of a complication Inste [...]

  29. Alexandra

    Having been bowled over by Abigail Reynold s Impulse and Initiative, I eagerly ordered of her books to devour Those of us who read PP fanfiction are usually doing so because we can t get enough of Darcy and Elizabeth s relationship and enjoy reading what it might have been like had it developed at different points While I have no problem with DE having conflicts, misunderstandings, or issues getting to know each other after they ve met now I know I DO have a problem with it taking place after t [...]
