An Assembly Such as This (Fitzwilliam Darcy, Gentleman: Book 1)

An Assembly Such as This  - Pamela Aidan I found that these three books are the best 'Darcy POV' works to date and glad to see that a larger publisher has picked them up. I wonder what the men of Austen's time would have thought of this characterization of Darcy; would they have considered it an accurate portrayal of their class? That leads me to the question of what men today think of this Darcy and do they think that Ms. Aidan has captured the essence of man (if there is such a thing)? Perhaps some day I will find a male friend that will read this trilogy and answer the questions.
