Now I would like to start off this posting by stating that I am not even particularly obsessed with Pride and Prejudice - and I still find this offensive.

Some stupid bitch from Austin, Texas wrote a sequel to Pride and Prejudice. That’s funny…i don’t remember Jane Austen rising from her grave and giving permission to anyone who feels like it to decide what happens to Darcy and Lizzie after they get married.

Here is the summary from The book is titled “Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife: Pride Prejudice Continues” and it is written by Linda Berdoll aka Stupid Bitch.

I would have included the link - but i’m don’t know how (and yes i know i need to learn).

This rollicking sequel to Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice was originally self-published in 1999 as The Bar Sinister. In Berdoll’s wild, bawdy, and utterly enjoyable novel, the Darcys begin their married life as one of the happiest, most in-love couples imaginable. Berdoll picks up the story after their wedding, but flashes back to the days after the courtship, when Elizabeth and Darcy’s passion for each other grew stronger. After a spicy wedding night, the couple finds their compatibility extends far beyond their matched wits. As Elizabeth settles into her role as mistress of a large household, her sister Jane grapples with her own, less passionate marriage to Charles Bingley. Thrown in as well are an illegitimate young man who just might be Darcy’s son, a vengeful serving man who plagues the Darcys and develops an unhealthy fixation on Elizabeth, and suspicions of infidelity. Austenites who enjoy the many continuations of her novels will find much to love about this wild ride of a sequel, especially Berdoll’s depiction of the enduring, strong love between Elizabeth and Darcy.

Wow, this bitch has got giant brass balls. I bet she leaves a trail of sparks behind her when she walks down the street.

I actually remember when this first came out. I think she's even wrote sequels to other Jane Austen books. Either that or someone else has done the same thing, which wouldn't suprise me at all.

Very colorful book. It leaves nothing to the imagination in dealing with the Darcy's marital acts. Well written however, the language used by Jane Austen is preserved. A wonderful plot with more action than most can handle.
