So, while D.C.T.P. isn't a perfect novel, and I didn't really find the murder mystery all that mysterious, I still enjoyed the book quite a bit. It was rather like visiting old friends whom you haven't seen in a while and catching up on their lives. P.D. James is always a compelling writer, and she is respectful of the source material, never straying far from Austen's interpretations of her characters'personae. All in all, this was a fun read, and I would definitely recommend it to fans of "Pride and Prejudice".
