Nervous from the get-go...

Maya Slater's, um, unique reworking of Pride and Prejudice, The Private Diary of Mr. Darcy, is finally out here in the U.S., and I'm wrestling with temptation. I strongly suspect I will regret reading it—remember, guys, this is the book where Mr. Darcy jumps a chambermaid, has sex with hookers, and pals around with Lord Byron—but curiosity has always been my besetting sin.

Is $14.95 too great a price to pay, or should I hunt this one down via alternate sources?

With how dubious the book sounds, I would put in reserve a copy with the local library (the book being new, the hold list might be loooong), and patiently pass the waiting time reading things that I know that I want to read.

Okay--I followed your advice! I'm fifth in line for the hold, but the library has five books on order, so my hopes are high (for fast book-delivery, not the book's actual contents).
