Love Abigail's P&P Stories

Would you listen to A Pemberley Medley again? Why?

Yes, as I have read all these stories over the years many times and always enjoy my favorite literary couple's re-imaginings.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Can't have Darcy without Elizabeth. All ladies want to BE Elizabeth and want to WIN THE LOVE AND DEVOTION of Darcy. All other characters are minor. They are Lizzy and Darcy's stories.

Would you be willing to try another one of Elizabeth Klett’s performances?

If I had the choice of listening to the same story by Ms. Klett or another narrator, I would probably choose the other narrator. I found Ms. Klett's slight lisp, especially on the word "Elizabeth", which is everywhere in the story, annoying to say the least. It became more and more difficult to hear - like fingernails on a chalkboard. Seeing as it's also the narrator's own name, I found it even more annoying. It was a subtle lisp, but when the word occurs hundreds of times in a story it drives me crazy.Perhaps it is something about an English accent and the word Elizabeth since another of Ms. Reynold's stories, with a different narrator, also seemed to have a lisp as well. Maybe it's my ears, but I am quite used to listening to actresses with an English accent and don't hear this type of subtle lisp in them. Maybe it's the recording equipment.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I always enjoy Abigail's variations on P&P. She has a great knack with writing humor (wit).

Any additional comments?

The wonderful stories overrides the slight qualms I had with the narrator, so overall I would not discourage others to listen to this audiobook. Perhaps I am too picky.

Each of the 5 stories wonderful

Although each of the stories is cleverly written, my favorite is "Intermezzo" . Intermezzo includes Georgiana Darcy as she overcomes her shyness and distrust of Caroline Bingley's machinations.
determines to find out more about the woman who has captured her brother's heart. With the prodding of Georgiana and Bingley's new seating plan, Darcy is seated next to Elizabeth and has an opportunity to find out how her opinion of him has changed.
