The last man in the world she could be prevailed upon to marry...is her husband?

No, no no!!
Keeping him true to the character Jane Austen created instead of this unrecognisable, insipid creature.
Certainly not a Prise and Prejudice variation.
Too rushed. Mispronounced Eliz-i-beth instead of Eliz-A-beth which annoyed me every single time she said it.
Marketed by Mills and Boone, and with the names changed it would have been tolerable as a romantic frippery but as a variation to Pride and Prejudice I would cut it all and take it off the shelves.
This is pure Mills and Boone and nothing whatsoever to do with Jane Austen. The characters were unrecognisable and absolutely untrue to those of Pride and Prejudice apart from (almost) bearing the same names. I have hesitated for a long time to read any of these variations and shall not be reading any more. It is nothing short of a total travesty to be marketed as anything to do with one of the greatest novels ever published. Hated it. I would have given it no stars in any category if I could have.

The Last man in the world overly contrived
Though the story got off to an intriguing start, the second part of the story was excessively contrived. The solutions underlying the comings and goings of the main characters' thoughts and feelings were not credible.
She might have compressed the story or found different details to justifiy its length.
She might have pronounced some words more correctly.
To rewite the second part.
