WOW! What a fantastic book! There wasn’t a dull moment in this! Fitzwilliam Darcy Rock Star is a great modern adaptation of Pride and Prejudice. I totally love Darcy and Elizabeth, they are both so intense. The way they get into their music to sort out their feeling is really cool.
When members, Fitzwilliam Darcy, Charles Bingley and Richard Fitzwilliam of the rock band Slurry, are in need of an opening act for their tour, they ask the all girl band, Elizabeth Bennet, Jane Bennet and Charlotte Lucas, of Long Borne Suffering, to join them and soon the sparks fly, hearts are broken, and misunderstandings happen! There are other issues in the story, one which touches on addictions.
Darcy is talented, smart and incredibly HOT! He also has control issues. Elizabeth is also smart, talented and very independent. The combination is explosive!
Touring seems like it would be very exhausting! Rigaud does show that being a rock star can be grueling but playing their music is what they love.
I loved how they would sometimes talk to each other through their music, either because it was the only way they could express how they felt or there wasn’t time to talk but they could get a message across in a song.
Fitzwilliam Darcy Rock Star ROCKS! I just had to say that. :) In case you haven’t figured it out I loved this story and would definitely give it 5 out of stars!
I would also give it a mature rating for some sexual content.
This completes the modern category, #5, from the Jane Austen Spinoffs 2012 Reading Challenge.
