    1. I felt the need to justify my rating, though my status updates provide an accurate picture of what reading this book does to your brain. The first half of this book is excellent. 5 stars. The second half is OMGWTF. -792 stars. So overall, 2 stars. Math: I am bad at it. But seriously, the book is well-written, the premise is good, the characters are true to Jane Austen. But then a little more than halfway through the plot NONSENSE HAPPENS. And continues to happen until the book reaches it's total [...]


    2. 1.5 stars rounded up to 2 DNF at 60%Okay, I fully realise this is Austen fanfic, but while a fanfic reader will enjoy a story that goes on nearly forever - the result of the anticipation brought on by having to wait for the next chapter - the same cannot be said for an actual book, I mean this book is about twice the length of Pride & PrejudiceIt's actually well written, and though the characters aren't entirely the ones Austen wrote, they're not wildly out of character either, at the beginn [...]


    3. This book is among the first I read when I first discovered the wonderful world of Jane Austen Fan Fiction. I'd been a compulsive re-reader of the original Pride and Prejudice over the previous couple of decades, and finding this new genre of books opened a whole treasure trove for me to explore. I was utterly seduced by Ms. Oaks' authentic-sounding Regency prose, which remains among the best in JAFF.With the sequel finally available now, I happily reached back to re-visit this old friend. The w [...]


    4. To be fair, the first 2/3 of the book was worthy of 5 stars. I was in a fair way of becoming convinced this was the best P&P "what if" I've ever read. Then, it wasn't one thread pulled, but an entire unraveling of the heretofore beautiful story which had enthralled me with the rich character development. It went off the deep end with clerical compromises, paranoid poisonings, and mysterious murder. I was just getting to the point where I was looking forlornly at the fact that I was more than [...]


    5. Loved, loved this book. I can see reading it over and over. Just wonderful. Jane and Bingley were so adorable. I also love Col Fitzwilliam's style of dialogue. Is there a sequel to this?Read again yesterday and still love it. It never gets old. I wanted to refresh my memory before reading the sequel.


    6. I loved this book. It is an endearing story of Elizabeth & Darcy and I was really touched by it. I presume there will be a sequel as the reader is left wondering exactly how the couple will fare in London during the waiting period imposed by lizzy's father. I must admit that shortly after finishing the book, I reread it Pure bliss.


    7. At the Meryton Assembly Elizabeth does not hear the insult from Darcy. How does that change their relationship, especially when Jane has an accident on the way to Netherfield.Overall an enjoyable story though at times there was too much introspection from Darcy and Elizabeth for my taste.For me the book was saved by the appearance and actions of Colonel Fitzwilliam. Much more than in canon


    8. So I've never actually read a P&P rewrite, sequel, or even fanfiction before, but felt nostalgic for Longbourn last night and came across this one. It had pretty good reviews on , so I went for it. For the first third or so of the book, I was very happy with this decision. Then all hell broke loose.The first third, or close to even half of the book, is worth probably four stars, and was such a pleasant surprise. The characters were pretty close to being written as Jane Austen wrote them and [...]


    9. GLAD THERE IS A SEQUELI bought this story on kindle after a reviewer made a comment on one of my reviews (a nice comment). So I decided to check out all of her reviews. I ended up adding about half a dozen books to my wish list, as I had a number waiting to be read on my new kindle already. So as I came to the end of those stories I read the reviews and ordered this booksterday and finished at 2:21 AM this morning. Then, as I always do, I read ALL of the reviews before writing my owns, all 133 r [...]


    10. TYPE OF AUSTENESQUE NOVEL: Variation – What if Elizabeth moved out of earshot before Darcy stated his ill-fated “barely tolerable” insult?TIME FRAME: Begins with the Meryton AssemblyMAIN CHARACTERS: Elizabeth Bennet, Mr. Darcy, Jane Bennet, Mr. Bingley, Colonel Fitzwilliam, Lady Catherine, Mr. Collins, Caroline Bingley, Anne de BourghWHY I WANTED TO READ THIS NOVEL:It's a Pride and Prejudice variationy my most favorite type of Austenesque novel!A New Author! I've never read anything by Dia [...]


    11. I can say I truly enjoyed this Austen adaptation--it didn't just repeat the original and it didn't put in any ridiculous sex scenes. Instead, it was full of psychological drama, humor, and courtship.I like how this author decided to tell the tale of what would happen if Elizabeth didn't hear Darcy disparage her at their first meeting. It was amazing to see how she thought the story would unravel without that one comment. I felt she was true to the characters of Lizzy and Darcy--both struggling w [...]


    12. Delightful, witty, creative, and I couldn’t put it down.I found this author on the Austen Authors website and was curious about her work. The reviews seemed favorable so I decided to get book 1 of The One Thread Pulled Series: The Dance with Mr. Darcy. The premise is how the story would differ if Elizabeth had not heard the insult at the Meryton Assembly. I purchased the ebook for my NOOK and I am so glad I did.Let me just say…when you get on this roller coaster…hold on with both hands. I [...]


    13. I've always enjoyed good Jane Austen Fan-fiction. Emphasis on GOOD. . .This book did a good job straying from the original story line (why write fan fiction if it is just going to repeat the original in every scene?) but staying true to the characters. There were several side characters who were way out there (Caroline Bingley is a perfect example of this), but all in all most acted in a way that made sense for how I see them. The author took a particular point in the original novel and changed [...]


    14. This little story I found on "darcyandlizzy". The story starts out on the premise that Elizabeth Bennet does not overhear Mr Darcy's disparaging remark. He still gives offense to everyone at the assembley by ignoring and walking around so very proud and ignoring everyone. Elizabeth is not impressed and though her opinion of him is not very good, she does not have the same atitude as the original P&P. Darcy of course goes through the same denials and the story progresses from there. There are [...]



    15. The two stars are for everything that led up to the Netherfield Ball. After that it turned into a ridiculous, haphazard, jigsaw puzzle with pieces that don't fit. It was painful how outrageous everything was. A waste of time. Jane Austen would burn it.


    16. OH I love this story! I do so wish it will be published as I would love to read this story over and over again flipping through my favorite chapters. If you ever wondered how the P&P storyline would play out if our dear Lizzy didn't hear the slight against her from Darcy ("tolerable but not handsome enough to tempt me") this is the book for you. Remember in P&P Lizzy had said "I could easily have forgiven his pride if he hadn't injured mine" - well this book proves it! Also the 2 obstacl [...]


    17. I resisted reading this variation for a few months after reading a sample. The positive reviews lured me back to the book finally and as I suspected I liked the story but found it a bit long. I imagine an author gets attached to all parts of the creation and has a hard time paring it down. The long narrative lead to an abrupt ending of sorts . . . gearing down for a continuation novel perhaps? Then 'boo'!! I'm another reader sorely tired of this trendsynopsis from coverWhen the wealthy and hands [...]


    18. Five words to summarise my feelings on this story: it started out so well. The first half is delightful, probably because it focuses on Elizabeth and Darcy's growing attraction to one another, as per the source material. After that, however, the plot becomes less Pride and Prejudice and more Death Comes to Pemberley. Intrigue, death, family secrets! I was nearly unconvinced by the turn of events. Then again, this is not the first fanfiction I've come across that derails halfway through the plot. [...]


    19. There was so many positive reviews about this book and I just found it extremely boring and tedious. I'm sorry if others are offended but it took 86% before Darcy and Elizabeth finally came to a full ageement. Carolyn was a mental case and Mr. Collins was rapist wanna be. That did'nt bother me as it added some excitement but it was Colonel Fitzwilliam who saved Lizzy not Darcy. Thats because he was'nt around. If your going to write a love story about a couple said couple should be together. They [...]


    20. I loved, loved loved this book. It was clever, funny, & written in such a way that it could have been an alternate version of Austen herself. Most of the things changed were better (imagine if Elizabeth & Darcy didn't spend 3/4 of the book sniping at one another), but some I liked better in the original. Wickham, for example. His fate in Pride & Prejudice was both his crime & his punishment. This book gave him a much harsher (albeit still realistic) fate. The ending was very abru [...]


    21. This was really good! There were a few things about this story that I thought were a bit far-fetchedd I think she could have ended it in a different, more 'happily-ever-after' waybut otherwise I loved reading this story.Update: I just found out that the author is working on a sequel to this story, so I guess that maybe I will get my 'happily-ever-after' ending after all least I hope so! :)


    22. I adored this story so much! It is by far one of my favourites! I am so glad that it is going to be published! When I wasn't able to read it, due to things like work and sleep, I couldn't wait to get back to reading it! I was deeply drawn into the characters and couldn't wait to see what was happening. At some moments and trying to read so quickly because I had to know what was going to happen!It was excellent! I loved it!


    23. Loved it. The plot was rivetting. Loved how the author kept some of the exact same quotes. The book takes you on quite a different tangent, but I can imagine that Jane Austen would have approved. It was nice to see the take on a few questions ie "what if Darcy let people know about Whickam and his sister".


    24. Loved this P&P varitation! I did NOT like that Mr. Bennett has Lizzie and Darcy wait 6 months to marry. What torture for us fans! Well written and characters did not entirely deviate from jane's original.


    25. As far as Jane Austen fan fiction goes, I love this one best. I didn't realize how long it was but I didn't mind until I realized there would be a sequel. I hate when that happens. I can't wait. So good.


    26. One of my new favorite P&P variations. What if Lizzy never heard Darcy call her tolerable? Love the story so far but was a little disappointed to near the end and realize is was book 1 of 2 and number 2 won't be out until sometime in 2013 ugh!!!! Loved it!! Looking forward to the next one.


    27. Finished this in 2 days! Definitely a great read!!! <3 Jane Austen will be so proud of this book. Wonderfully written; Darcy and Lizzie are not too cheesy like most of the Austen-inspired books I have read. My only complaint is that it ended too soon :( Can't wait for its sequel!


    28. It was a funny one. Nice plot, good narrative entwined with the original story. I enjoyed it but I believe it felt short, as if there will be a continuation?


    29. I really enjoyed this variation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. I loved the development of the characters and themes. My only complaint is that it ended too abruptly. 4.5 stars!
