    1. What You Need to Know Before Reading The Trials of the Honorable F. Darcy:1. This book is not Pride and Prejudice.2. The text and conversation can, at times, feel awkward and stilted, because it seems that Sara Angelini is under the mistaken illusion that British people rarely, if ever, use contractions.3. This book is not Pride and Prejudice.4. Go into this book with an open mind. If you are like me and love Pride and Prejudice a ridiculous amount, you need to go into this book knowing it is al [...]


    2. 4.5 starsI have very mixed and conflicting feelings about this book. If I look at it as a stand-alone romance novel - I loved it. But if I consider it as a variation on Pride and Prejudice there are shortcomings. I have stated in other recent reviews I have posted that I don't usually read modern variations of P&P but have had recommended to me more than a few by people I trust recently. I read them and enjoyed those modern tales, but have now come to the conclusion that one must realize and [...]


    3. Fitzwilliam Darcy, a wealthy Englishman, is one of the youngest judges appointed in the county of Meryton, California. Yet four years into his term finds him overworked, restless, and dissatisfied. Elizabeth Bennet, the newest attorney to join Gardiner & Associates, is ready to make a name for herself in the legal world. After her first trial with Judge Darcy presiding, Elizabeth comes to the conclusion that with his supercilious, aloof, and formidable behavior Judge Darcy is the last man in [...]


    4. Many modern versions of Jane Austen’s works fail to hit the mark because the author forces a “rewrite” of the original, altogether forgetting that some scenarios and mores from the Regency era make no sense in the modern day world. Or worse yet, the author fails to deliver any character development – depending almost wholly on the expectation that the reader will be familiar with Miss Austen’s originals. Fortunately, author Sara Angelini’s The Trials of the Honorable F. Darcy is invi [...]


    5. Don't let the cover of this book deceive you. This is not a parody of legally blonde. This was an interesting tale we are Darcy sits as a judge and Elizabeth Bennett is an attorney appearing in front of his court. While some of the description of the legal interactions between them was not actually wholly accurate, I still highly enjoyed the story and thought the tension and angst between them was wonderful (the inaccuracies didn't distract me). This book is very well written and had excellent p [...]


    6. Since when do regular libraries start carrying such explicit sexual novels and passing them off as regular books without so much as a warning of any sort?!! I'm a firm believer that books should have ratings just like movies, and this book is proof of that. Beyond Rated R if possible. After I realized what I had gotten myself into, I was immediately disappointed and had to put the book down shortly after starting it. But curiosity got the best of me and I ended up briefly skimming the rest just [...]


    7. Ok, so here's the deal. I liked this book. I did. But ONLY by itself. On its own The Trials of the Honorable F. Darcy is a nice, light read. No emotional investment at all. On the other hand, if you're looking for a modern rendition of Pride & Prejudice do NOT read this book. It barely follows the original plot at all, so much so that it's pretty much a story with the same character names. I'll give you an example: Elizabeth father is mentioned maybe three times, and Lydia, arguably the sour [...]


    8. Different story line, not canon, and not true to Austen purists standards. In other words, it is a story about a judge and an attorney who fall in love and use names and dialogue from our beloved Pride and Prejudice. I take offense with the crude language and graphic sex scenes. It should be noted somewhere that this book is X-rated. I didn’t appreciate seeing these beloved characters reduced to such low behavior. It was unseemly. The use of the “F” word while making love seems out of plac [...]


    9. At first I wondered how Sara Angelini would ruin one of my most favorite characters of all time, but when I started reading, I TRULY LOVED her twist on it to make it modern and definitely tons of fun! I laughed, had some "tears", and I felt completely blown away by the story and the love that surrounded it! Great read for sure and you will definitely be in love with all your favorite characters all over again!


    10. What a disappointment! When I look for Jane Austen spin-offs, I like them to have substance, clean language, and tasteful displays of affection. This book has none of these things. The characters were mere caricatures of the original book with some of them not even remotely like the original. Most of the book is set in the San Francisco area--England is a sideline. Jane and Bingley are surgeons??? So bizarre. And why is Elizabeth's best friend a gay Mr. Hurst? Lizzy's hatred of Darcy changed ove [...]


    11. This book began with the great promise of Austen's P and P with all the requisite mistaken identities and witty repartee of the classic but descended all too soon into a frustrating literary melange that included too few laughs, too many detailed scenes of intimacy,(with so many references to the fresh, clean body smells of pear and moss that I almost gagged),and too little information provided about the book's secondary characters to keep the plot moving forward and maintain this reader's inter [...]


    12. No no no. Just no. Sorry I know this is a modern version with sex but jeez Darcy isn't just into Lizzie for sex! Sure thats a bonus but whew no. Do me a favor look up the LIZZIE BENNETT DARIES on youtube! That is a modern adaptation. Please watch that instead of reading this. The writing was so jumpy, I read it as an ebook so I hope its better in print. Lizzie/Darcy flip flopping perspectives was hard to follow. None of the supporting characters were interesting or fleshed out and added nothing [...]


    13. One of the weirdest of all the various Jane Austen fanfics out there. This is just too bizarre to take in. It sailed for the wall at about page 50 or so.


    14. Gone are the days of petticoats and carriages. In the century of the business suit and BMW, romance is a whole different story…or is it? Sara Angelini gives us a hilarious retelling of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, but from a modern stand in THE TRIALS OF THE HONORABLE F. DARCY. When I received this book, I thought it would be cute and I was sure it would be a good read. Something to keep me entertained on a rainy day. What I didn’t expect was how often I would laugh or how much I wou [...]


    15. Note to Jane Austen fans: this isn't a JAFF. The author used beloved P&P characters to sell books. Aside from names, the characters have absolutely nothing in common with the original. What made me realize we weren't in Austenland anymore?*Was it the use of the "F" word every other sentence or the fact that Darcy was "F"ing Caroline Bingley?*Maybe it was sweet, shy Jane determined to Bed Charlie Bingley and her eye rolling pick up line. So much for Jane's feelings being difficult to read.*Wa [...]


    16. The Trials of the Honorable F. Darcy is a modernized version of Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice. Elizabeth Bennett is a lawyer and she represents her clients often times before Judge Fitzwilliam Darcy. Lizzie's first impression of Judge Darcy is not a good one. She thinks he is a stuffy bastard and wants nothing to do with him. Darcy on the other hand is intrigued by Ms. Bennett and is quite shocked by her dismissal of him. Fate has other plans for these two as they keep running into each othe [...]


    17. Very mature audiences only!This modern retelling of P&P is more of a stand-alone romantic novel that uses the same character names - but I'll let it slide. What if Darcy was a judge, and Elizabeth was an attorney who had to stand before Darcy almost daily?What I liked about this novel: The writing is great. There were times when I was really sucked into what was happening. The story is very different from P&P in general, and I really actually liked the storyline. I was nervous when they [...]


    18. Judge Darcy of San Francisco is well-respected in the courtroom, but longs for his life of a gentleman back in England, Pemberley to be exact. Elizabeth is also well-respected, only she’s still a relatively new lawyer in Darcy’s courtroom. Darcy’s haughty demeanor turns off Elizabeth, but Darcy feels a growing attraction for the saucy Elizabeth. What begins as a short-term fling turns complicated as the professional legality of their personal relationship is questioned.This was a fun take [...]


    19. The book is called The Trials of the Honorable F. Darcy by Sara Angelini. It is a modern spin in which Darcy is a judge and Elizabeth is an attorney. A lover of both Jane Austen and John Grisham's legal novels, I thought "Oh cool!" Yeah. Not. I was also drawn in by the high rating. Another mistake. Something about Fitzwilliam Darcy being a rake-like jerk who is sleeping with Caroline and ogling Elizabeth and the way her skirt hugs her hips was just a little off for me. What happened to Darcy?! S [...]


    20. This novel is a modern twist of Pride and Prejudice. Elizabeth is a busy Attorney who comes face to face with a bored, stuffy Judge Darcy. From then on sparks fly. I love how the author put the characters from Pride and Prejudice with almost the same characteristics into this story. My favorite lines from the story: Referring to his name plate Hon. F. Darcy, "what does the Fand for?" she asked. "What do you think it stands for?" he countered. "Do you really have any doubt what I think it stands [...]


    21. I loved this modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice, it actually is more that the author took all the characters and put them into her own book with similar roles. I thought it was fabulous and to quote another review, "“Delicious! It is finger-licking, lip smacking, delicious definitely my favorite modern re-telling of Pride and Prejudice to date.” (Bella McGuire A Bibliophile's Bookshelf )" It is sexy, for some too much, but that is why it differed from other sequels and attracted me more [...]


    22. I can not begin to express the pure joy I had in reading this story. I love Jane Austen and I love contemporary romance and this is both. I give it 5 happy, full stars slightly brimming over the edges. It's gone straight into my sweet shop. Every reader feels differently about every book but I'm so glad we get to feel. This one is right up there with Lady Impossible by B.D.Fraser. SQ


    23. This should have been a short story, at the very most. Trashy, but not in a good way. It told all the story it had to tell by about page 65, including padding. The rest (245 pages total) just needed to be edited. Heck, the whole thing cried out for an editor. Avoid.


    24. This could have been a brilliant modern day Pride and Prejudice storyt the author had to ruin every few pages with borderline pornographic sexual references and scenes :( I ended up skipping more than I read!I won't be recommending this book to anyone else to read :(


    25. This book was so hilarious!!! I peed my pants and cried from laughing so hard!!! "Who do I write the check to F. Darcy? Middle initial U?" FUNNY!!!!! I loved it!!!


    26. Very fun legal version of Pride and Prejudice. A lot more salacious than the original, but entertaining none the less. And who wouldn't want to take an accidental vacation with Mr. Darcy?


    27. Awful- There is nothing in common with P&P other than the names of characters. She might as well have put in all of the effort and at least created her own distinct characters.


    28. I don't really see much that has anything to do with P&P, except names of people and places. I have read better tellings. Naughty.



    29. (Review originally posted on my book blog here)I was curious about this one, touted as "A thoroughly modern adaptation of Jane Austen's classic novel Pride and Prejudice", with Darcy as a judge, and Elizabeth Bennet as a trial lawyer. Hmm. Liked the idea, wasn't sure how it would play out. The Premise: (taken from the back blurb) "Judge Fitzwilliam Darcy is terribly bored -- ready to hang up his black robe and return to the life of a country gentleman--until he meets Elizabeth Bennet, a fresh-f [...]
