    One thought on “Master Under Good Regulation”

    1. Reggie Lends Mr. Darcy A Helping Hand…erm…Paw!Source: PurchasedAt the tender age of fifteen, a grieving and motherless Fitzwilliam is brought to select a trusty companion of his very own from a litter of English Springer Spaniels. Due to his intelligent eyes and “lively and playful manner,” young Fitzwilliam chooses Reggie despite the fact that he is not of the highest breeding. Through the years Reggie and Darcy develop a wonderfully close bond. Reggie helps Darcy find happiness after h [...]

    2. Cleverly written story. Interesting variation of Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice from the POV of Darcy's Springer spaniel, Reggie. He was Darcy's constant companion since he was chosen by Darcy when he was fifteen years old. By the time Darcy is at Netherfield, Reggie is slowing down, but still has his wits about him and realizes that his master is in a muddle. The dog is more socially aware than his master. If only Reggie could talk to Darcy.

    3. I hesitated to buy this book for a long time due to the premise of a dog's POV but since I have loved this author's other books, finally decided to purchase and read this.One MUST remember going in that this is a story told from Darcy's pet dog's point of view. There is no POV from Elizabeth or Darcy and we only gets scenes when that pet, Reggie, is present. So we don't hear the dialogue between ODC as they dance at Netherfield, etc. And we feel all the frustration Reggie feels in his limited ab [...]

    4. I first read this novel on a writer's guild forum and really enjoyed it. This novel is about Mr. Darcy's trusted k-9 (dog) and his interpretation of Mr. Darcy as he is struggling to fall for Elizabeth Bennet, harbor his heartbreak from being denied in his marriage proposal and seeking to be a better man by earning Elizabeth's love.The author very well describes the relationship of Mr. Darcy and his dog when he first gets him, when his parents die, while he raises his orphaned sister and as he st [...]

    5. I really liked this P&P variation but I didn't love it. I will tell you why. Kara Louise is a wonderful writer and her stories are always fresh and well written. I loved Reggie the insightful hound, a more delightful fictional dog may never again live on the page. However, dog stories invariably leave me sad. That's all I'm saying. . .

    6. This is well written. It is easy to read and is adorable at times and funny at others and even sad on occastion. But even though I would happily give this book 3.5 stars I can't quite stretch to 4. Why? It just didn't do it for me. This is the second book I've read by Kara Louise. I admire her writing in comparison to a lot of other dross that is written in this particular genre. But there was not quite as much excitement to compel me and the narrative at times felt exhausting because there was [...]

    7. I am not a dog lover, but how can you resist the opportunity to read P&P as told from the perspective of Mr Darcy's dog? The insanity of the concept is why I bought the tome, the fact that it was actually significantly better than most the adaptations, interpretations and P&P fanfics was a pleasant surprise. I am not sure if that speaks more to this book or the poor quality of the other works, but this was quite adequate.

    8. This probably deserves a 3 1/2 or 4 but I have read SO many retellings of P&P that I confess, I'm a little burned out. I absolutely LOVE Kara Louise's adaptations of P&P because they have exciting plot twists and yet are true to Austen's characterizations.I love that this retelling if from the dog's perspective. I LOVE Reggie and reading this made me appreciate my own faithful companion even more.

    9. Enjoying this P and P variation. The story is seen through the eyes of Reggie, Mr. Darcy's dog. You get a great understanding of the true compliments Darcy pays Elizabeth through the story. Again, this is why I read these variations. You continue to get better views on the workings of that characters minds.The book with the typeface just l wasted a bit long. I just must be in moods for a short synopsis.

    10. I'm not a doglover, but I really liked this book. I do think it is a bit too long. It takes 100 pages to get to the first mention of Elizabeth. By that time I began to feel a little impatient. I did like Reggies frustration with Darcy at Rosings and all the little things he tries to get Darcy and Elizabeth together. It was also nice to see a bit more of Anne and Georgiana.

    11. I have liked all of the Kara Louise Pride & Prejudice variations that I have read. This one is especially endearing as it shows Darcy as a young man of 15, picking out a puppy who ends up being his companion for the next 13 years. It is a clever retelling of Jane Austen's classic.

    13. P&P told from Darcy's dogs point of view. Any animal lover will adore this thoughtful, clever interpretation. Totally ok for teen readers. It's not a cutesy, whimsy book though. Really enjoyable love story-- on many levels. A favorite!

    14. OK, maybe not everyone. I'll take to a retelling of the Elizabeth/Darcy story by his loyal dog, but I loved it!

    15. So very sweet. Well written. I laughed and cried. A new view provided for a story so well-known to many of us in this genera. Good job Ms. Louise. But then I love all of your contributions. :)
