    Mary Lydon Simonsen’s “Darcy and Elizabeth The Language of the Fan” is a fun short story inspired by Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice While staying with her sick sister at Netherfield Park Elizabeth Bennet falls asleep on a bearskin rug in the library only to awaken to a conversation between Mr Bingley and Mr Darcy Elizabeth tries to sneak out unnoticed but she sticks around when the conversation turns to her sister Jane and ultimately turns into a demonstration by Mr Darcy of “the language of the fan”If you can picture Mr Darcy and Mr Bingley waving around black lace fans trying to determine whether Jane was communicating to Mr Bingley with her fan you can understand why I laughed out loud several times while reading this storyBut what I liked best about this story was the playful battle of wits between Mr Darcy and Elizabeth who uses her knowledge of the conversation against him As their attraction grows so does Elizabeth’s desire to beat him at this game building up to a hilarious scene in the parlor at LongbournSimonsen’s Austen inspired stories never let me down Her affection for Austen’s sense of humor and her wonderfully flawed characters shine through in “Darcy and Elizabeth The Language of the Fan” I breezed through this story with a smile on my face and I can see myself reading it again sometime when I’m in the mood for Elizabeth and Darcy’s playful banter From the amusing use of the language of the fan to the humorous gravestone uotes I could picture Austen reading this story with a glint in her eyes and laughter on her lipsReview post on Diary of an Eccentric

    Those following the blog are well aware of the fact that I’m a huge fan of Simonsen’s writing She always comes up with new and creative ways to make us fall in love with Darcy and Elizabeth’s story Having read many Regency novels that employ the use of fans by ladies of respectable status I’ve been curious about what all the motions of these fans meant It was really fascinating to have the “rules of the fan” interjected throughout the story as a plot deviceOnce Darcy and Elizabeth become “friends” they get on a conversation about tombstone markers Elizabeth tells him that Mr Bennet enjoys walking through cemeteries looking for the most uniue ones Reading the tombstone markers that Simonsen later told me actually exist were really funny and they added a uirky humor to the storyFinal thoughts Simonsen always leaves me wanting and that’s exactly how I felt upon completing The Language of the FanKimberly Reflections of a Book AddictOriginally Posted

    Cute fast read If you need a romance andor Jane Austen fix but don't want to get involved in a real book this is perfect It would be helpful to have read Pride and Prejudice up to the part where Jane goes to Netherfield for lunch and gets sick This book picks up with Elisabeth staying at Netherfield tending to Jane The happy ending with Darcy comes after thier interaction during this time and there is not Charlotte's marriage and Lizzies visit the visit to the lakes Lydia's elopement or anything else It is a cute fast booklet that can stand alone but does not replace the full story

    What a great PP variation This short story is worth every penny and of the 99 for the Kindle edition Readers get to enjoy this fun light and entertaining read with the fastidious Darcy and witty Lizzy I found myself laughing out loud several times while enjoying this delightful story Lizzy finds herself in a precarious position in the library when Darcy and Bingley enter The reader can only enjoy the comedy and wit Simonsen portrays in the scenes between the couple While I wish there was to this is short story as a PP lover I find myself always wanting Darcy and Elizabeth I am also grateful it is short that way I can pick it up and get a uick PP fix

    Somewhat witty but characters have little in common with the original There are some grammar and editing mistakes in the text
