Reviews of Other Tales: Stories from The Ballad of Gregoire Darcy by Marsha Altman

Sharon E. Cathcart reviewed on Jan. 18, 2012

Overall rating: 3.5 stars

This book consists of three short stories intended to introduce characters from Ms. Altman's Austen spin-off. I was not crazy about the first one, which introduces Fitzwilliam Darcy's ancestors.

The second one, which was my favorite of the lot, brings us the Maddox Brothers -- Brian and Daniel. Daniel is losing his vision to a cataract, and we see him through the surgery and the attendant horrors of what was then considered state-of-the-art treatment. I found these original characters very interesting and would like to know more about them.

The final story presents Georgiana Bingley and a Japanese friend, Mugin (who has apparently a rather rough past). I am a little uncertain what to make of Miss Bingley in this one, as she is interested in a great many unseemly activities and manages to get Mugin-san to show most of them to her.

This was a quick and entertaining read overall.
