Ola! I'm one of those crazy girls who is overly addictive to books and reading. I'm weird around books and tends to read them abnormally fast. And I'm a hopeful romantic who is a firm believer of Happily Ever Afters.
My Own Mr. Darcy - Karey White Mr. Darcy is one of the most intriguing classic character ever created. He was surly, dour, tall and imposing and pretty much an enigma so why a lot of women swoon over him? Why? That is really the question. I'm a fan of Pride Prejudice and okay I've swoon over Mr. Darcy from time to time coz guys like him are much more attractive but not to the point like the main character Elizabeth Barrett is.

Elizabeth is like every single woman out there, seeking to find her dream guy who just happened to be one of the most classical sweetheart, Mr. Darcy. Well, Mr. Darcy's world was set a couple of centuries ago so finding a guy just like him is a tough challenge. And Elizabeth's adventure in finding her own Mr. Darcy was indeed a challenge.

Matt Dawson is surly, dour, tall and imposing - very Mr. Darcy right? Well, his character didn't appeal to me much. I honestly didn't like him. Elizabeth may find some Mr. Darcy characteristics on him but for me - NO! He's pretty much rude and too moody and stuck on himself. I cant even feel his affections for Elizabeth.

Chad is so charming and adorable. His character was built to be very much likeable. He's far from Mr. Darcy because he has his own personality. I like him much more.

(Well, you see. The guys are on both extreme opposites.)

I like the story plot with its realistic dilemmas and realistic crafted characters. I just find it lacking a bit more action or kick. The story goes smoothly but a bit flat.

My Own Mr. Darcy is a wonderful spin to one of the most romantic stories. It is about following your dreams and heart. It was about finding the one even if you're not clearly looking and importantly it is never too late to change your mind - you always have a choice.
