Fifty Shades of Mr. Darcy: A Parody - William Codpiece Thwackery "It is a truth universaly acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good riding crop must be in want of a pair of bare buttocks to thrash."This was the funniest book I have EVER read! I don't remember laughing so much that I cried (several times), and burst out with shocked laughter (practically at every page)! First I have to say - Pride and Prejudice, fell in love with the story when I first saw the mini-series from 1995. watched it about a million times. Read the book more times than I can remember so I practically know every dialogue by heart And I think that's why I enjoyed this so much :D the way it was all twisted in a funny way. Boy, just couldn't stop laughing My regret is that I haven't read 50 Shades, so I didn't recognise all the parody concerning that, but I've read enough quotes and reviews and discussions to recognise at least some things :D The story basically follows P&P, just with a slight twists in the characters, Mrs Bennet was a laugh Darcy sees Elizabeth and he wants to thrash her with his cane hahahah but he feigns indifference to hide his erection and you know how it all goes, Jane gets sick, gets better, Mr Phil Collins arrives , then Elizabeth goes to visit Rosings This was a shock and a picture I want to delete from my brain hahahah Lady Catherine De Burg And there Darcy finally gets the courage and presents Elizabeth with a sex-slave contract DarcyHe has copper hair and smouldering grey eyes, he smirks a lot and cocks his head all the time XD He's obsessed with feeding Elizabeth, and he wants nothing else but to be her Master He was raised by Lady Catherine, a dominatrix, and was corrupted in her "evil ways". ElizabethShe has a habit of messing with her hair, and sometimes even allowing Darcy to fix it for her XD She has an Inner Slapper and a Subconscious that talk to her very often She sees Darcy as the vulnerable man he is, and she wants to heal him There were a lot of things here that made me cry with laughter, and I won't reveal them just in case you decide to read this, but one thing I just have to mention, this is EPIC and I don't think I'll ever forget it Best scene:Whackem (Wikham) telling Elizabeth the story how he and Darcy became estranged O.M.G. Funniest thing ever!For those of you who have read '50 Shades' and 'Pride and Prejudice', and have nothing against reading a parody of both, I'd recommend to get this book immediately! It's just that funny!*ARC courtesy of Simon & Schuster via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review*
