Blog Tour: There’s Something About Darcy


I don’t normally participate in Blog Tours (in fact the only other one I have been a part of was on 04/06/18) but I couldn’t resist “There’s Something About Darcy” (much like I wouldn’t be able to resist Darcy himself). Not only is the title amazing, but look at that cover! It. is. GORGEOUS!

Book Description:

For some, Colin Firth emerging from a lake in that clinging wet shirt is one of the most iconic moments in television. But what is it about the two-hundred-year-old hero that we so ardently admire and love?

Dr Gabrielle Malcolm examines Jane Austen’s influences in creating Darcy’s potent mix of brooding Gothic hero, aristocratic elitist and romantic Regency man of action. She investigates how he paved the way for later characters like Heathcliff, Rochester and even Dracula, and what his impact has been on popular culture over the past two centuries. For twenty-first century readers the world over have their idea of the ‘perfect’ Darcy in mind when they read the novel, and will defend their choice passionately.

In this insightful and entertaining study, every variety of Darcy jostles for attention: vampire Darcy, digital Darcy, Mormon Darcy and gay Darcy. Who does it best and how did a clergyman’s daughter from Hampshire create such an enduring character?

A must-read for every Darcy and Jane Austen fan.

  1. Of course, you of all people would accept this blog tour. Who doesn’t love Darcy?! I’ve planed a re-read of Pride and Prejudice for Christmas and already reserved the audiobook narrated by Rosamund Pike. Can’t wait! I might even check this book out if I can’t get enough 😉

      1. She is the actress from Gone Girl who also played Jane Bennet in the movie version of Pride and Prejudice with Kiera Knightly. I really like her voice and her version of Jane so I hope it will be good 🙂
