    1. The story of Pride and Prejudice from Mary Bennet's point of view. Although there were new characters added to this story there was still a fair amount of the original in the text which was why I didn't give it 4 stars. But I still enjoyed the longer story and Mary's character.


    2. Another nice Mary Bennet.sweet quick readhope to see more from this authorSweet quick readlove Mary Bennet hope to see more from this authorok moved right along.d explained what was going on with Mary's sisters n neighbors


    3. Pride and Prejudice: Mary's StoryReading this story made me feel good about Mary. Being the middle daughter of five, she got overlooked by her parents and her sisters. From little on, comments made by both parents, especially her mother, caused Mary to withdraw within herself. Sad for a three-year old to hear such negative comments about herself that she had to hide behind the curtains to wait for them to leave the room. She grew to be silent, bookish, and very observant. Upon meeting Collum Dun [...]


    4. The dilemma of the middle child! Often overlooked Mary develops an akward and ungainly approach to life only later to evolve from the duckling status. Overshadowed by Lizzie and Jane then barely tolerated by Kitty & Lydia she has stuck out like a sore thumb and has felt as comfortable as such. It's through her relationship with her BFF Edith Mason that the opportunity for Mary to blossom is explored. Both wallflowers have prevailed upon the new tutor Mr Duncan to teach them the art of playin [...]


    5. The idea is very interesting even though, inadvertently, this book, besides the similar socio-historicalo-familial background and her take on her sister's romance, is simply another story. As Pride and Prejudice is about Elizabeth AND Darcy, If Darcy was a different character, Elizabeth would have certainly behave differently. Her own issues would have remained but would have been expressed differently. All that to say to actually highlight another take that exists from Jane Austen's novel; A 21 [...]


    6. I decided to read this book because Mary is one of my favorite characters in Pride & Prejudice, but this book's depiction of her was completely out of character.The author's voice did not match the writing style of the time, this was abundantly pointed out by the excessive passages taken directly from P&P. I believe that these were not needed because most people reading this book have already read P&P.I expected this book to be about what Mary went through during the story of P&P [...]


    7. What I liked about this story was Mary's ability to see faults in her sister Elizabeth. I thought it was refreshing because normally Elizabeth is portrayed in such a positive light. I also enjoyed the fact that Mary wasn't as frustrating to read as she can be in other portrayals. The downside to this is the fact that she is less frustrating because she is less "Mary-like". The whole story has us being told by Mary how "different" she is from what we "thought", but she is always spot-on with seei [...]
