    A hideous, plodding, ungraceful piece of mawkish fanfiction that succeeds neither as a mystery or as a pastiche of Austen s most beloved novel Oy.Almost from page one, there are embarassing lapses of craft and tone None of the economy or vibrance of Austen appears in these pages and the so called plot is built around a mystery that was so hamhanded that I d sussed the perpetrator within the first 50 pages But that

    Oh dear What were PD James, her agent and her publisher thinking Andto the point, what was I thinking, deciding to actually spend money on this book All I can say is that it seemed like a good idea at the time I am in what I presume to be the target demographic for this novel female, passionate about Jane Austen s novels, a long time reader of crime fiction and a fan of PD James to boot Indeed, if James name had not b

    I considered mounting a passionate defense in favor of this lovingly rendered tribute to Jane Austen, but then I decided I couldn t care less what the naysayers think If you pick up this gentle whodunit expecting the sartorial sleuthing of Commander Adam Dalgliesh, you will be disappointed If you read this looking for the ghost of Jane Austen, you will catch but a glimpse of her delicate frame Although the point of fan f

    1.5 stars, grudgingly rounded up Well known detective fiction writer P.D James took on the Pride and Prejudice characters and setting in this murder mystery It s 6 years after the end of P P, and Darcy and Elizabeth are preparing to host their annual autumn ball Wickham and Lydia who are NOT invited are nevertheless traveling to Pemberley Because that s just the sort of thing they do But something strange happens to them in

    I was really looking forward to reading this I love Jane Austen and I love P.D James too in different moods, naturally Both are masters of their chosen types of fiction But this book.It started off intriguingly enough when Lydia fifth and most reprobate Bennett daughter fromPride and Prejudiceruns into Pemberley, where her elder sister now resides, screaming that her husband has been murdered Not your average Jane Austen fare,

    I expect I am not alone in having bought this book because I was attracted by the idea of a murder mystery set in Pemberley I d fondly imagined that Elizabeth Darcy n e Bennett would be a witty and perceptive detective, and that P D James would successfully channel Jane Austen s muse I was to be disappointed on both counts The plot is dull but complex, the writing is mostly dull and nothan occasionally a pale shadow of Jane Auste

    This is perhaps the worst of all the Pride and Prejudice sequels and prequels Over the years I ve read some outlandish stuff Elizabeth and Darcy enjoying a quickie in the morning room, an insane woman haunting Pemberley and making Darcy unfit for Miss Eliza and other such rubbish But nowhere else did they seem so dull and lifeless, so devoid of charm and spark Be forewarned, the death referred to in the title is really that of Eliza

    There were good and bad things about this book It gavenuanced portraits of some of the characters, notably Darcy but also some minor characters It invites the reader to think a little differently about Jane Austen s classic novel However, the use of Austen s source material, though meant as an affectionate tribute, is wooden, often heavy handed and often overdone Some characters are dealt with unsatisfactorily Mary ends up in a situati

    Where I got the book my local library Unable to finish for the reasons cited below made it to page 80.It hurts to write this review I LOVE PD James Her subtlety, her edginess, the sheer intelligence of her prose, the nuances of her charactersI could go on And NONE of this is to be found within the pages of Death Comes to Pemberley I m sure I wasn t the only fan to get all excited about the idea of PD James doing Pride and Prejudice what i
