Mr. Bennet Calls on Mr. Bingley at Netherfield by Mary Simonsen — 31 Comments

  1. This was an absolute delight and I loved it. Mister Bennet can be quite entertaining when he can be pried out of his library. I wish there were an entire book of Mister B, because it would certainly make me walk around with a grin for days on end. Great job! I am looking forward to the next one.

    • There are at least a couple of books that came to mind which feature Mr Bennet prominently: “Longbourn’s Unexpected Matchmaker” and “Journals of Thomas Bennet”, and there are probably others. Hope this is helpful.

    • Thanks, Mari. I love Mr. Bennet’s wit. I’d love to sit down with him in his study on a cold winter’s day.

  2. As always great fun and great writing. Can almost see the twinkle in Mr. Bennet’s eyes. Good start to the morning.

  3. Witty writing. Enjoy reading about Mr. Bennet and hearing his banter with others. Not hard to realize that Lizzy’s wit comes from.

  4. Ah, we read here of Mr. Bennet’s sharing of his wit and humor. How delightful. Bingley may not appreciate it as much as does Darcy in meeting the daughter and her version of such.

    Thanks for the smiles. I have not read those two books on Mr. Bennet – so will have to investigate.

  5. A lovely vignette highlighting Mr. Bennet’s humor and Bingley’s good-natured ignorance of being the object of every matchmaking mama in the county…. 🙂

    Thank you for writing for us!

    Susanne 🙂

  6. What a fun read. I certainly can picture Mr. Bennet being so sneaky and witty and saying such things. Thanks for filling us in on what happened when Bennet visited with Bingley.
