In response to Pemberly and An Unique Marriage by Emma Tennant, written by Maxine on December 03, 1997 at 17:48:07
] Quite by accident while looking in a Half Price Bookstore, I
] came up the book "An Unique Marriage." In it was mentioned
] the book "Pemberley." Of course, I had to buy the one I found and quickly went to the library to locate the other. I have had a wonderful time reading these two books. Had no idea they even existed.
Did we read the same book?!?!? I read both books, and I ended up screaming and crying. In MHO, Emma Tennant's books were trash, expecially An Unequal Marriage. Darcy turning out to be bad?!? And his childrens' behavior? To both, the most simple answer: NO WAY ON EARTH!!! And frankly, if our dear Stud Muffin was to marry, he certainly would not marry such a snooty woman. Gawdalmighty!!!! Pray, don't mention that odious woman's name!!!
(I'm sorry, Maxine. Nothing against you, but I get very upset when Emma Tennant enters the discussion. She almost ruined things for me--I was so upset when I read the ending; I went back and read it twice over to make sure I had read the page correctly--IMO, all copies of those two books need to be put in a trash barrel, and burned. And she herself needs to be tarred and feathered for writing such trash.)
