A haiku review of ‘Death Comes to Pemberley’ by P.D. James

February 24, 2012 at 12:00 am 2 comments

P.D. James channels
Jane Austen to ill effect.
A pointless myst’ry

in the land of Eng.
Characters we remember
fondly, now remade.

Happy marriages
abound, while Wickhams remain

This book has no clear
reason for existing or
for reading, but it’s

still P.D. James, so
there’s one reason for not re-
sisting. Trivial?

Absolutely! But
could you find any better
other Austen fan fic?

I would suspect not.
Nor could you find any worse.
Hardly a rave read.

Great cover, though.

(With my most sincere apologies to haiku purists!)
