Wickham's Diary

Wickham's Diary - Amanda Grange This prequel to "Pride and Prejudice" begins with George Wickham at age 12, handsome and charming but also acutely aware that his friend, Fitzwilliam Darcy, is rich, whilst he is poor.

Wickham's Diary is only the second of Amanda Grange's novels that I have read, and to be perfectly honest, I found this novel not as interesting or page turning as I thought I would.

As a reader, I found the novel rushed and under developed, though it was interesting to learn about Wickham's boyhood and his early years with Fitzwilliam Darcy. It was also diverting to learn of his antics while at Cambridge and his reasons behind his actions.

Though enjoyable, Wickham's Diary just didn't really have the story development that I like to have within the pages of a Pride and Prejudice prequel. That being said, it did have it's moments, just not enough to warrant the novel a higher rating.
