Publisher's Summary

Darcy remembers the perfect love between his parents and believes it can be his. He trusts in destiny - with a little help from serendipity - to find the love of his life.
Elizabeth, informed by the example of her parents' marriage, refuses to believe in destiny. The concept of serendipity is an affront to her logic. She will not marry except for true love and thinks she can control her own fate if she is very cautious. Will she and Mr. Darcy find their happily ever after?

Not My Favorite Version

I got this book via audiobook boom. This was not my favorite version of Darcy and Elizabeth's story. The narrator was very good and kept the story moving along but I am not sure that Elizabeth's portrayal was to my liking. I like them both being themselves and society can just shove it. I think they work better when they have similar mindsets.

A classic with twists

pride & prejudice characters, humor, relationships, romance, historical novel

Silkstone, Darcy, and a twist: what's not to like? The publisher's blurb gives hints and there is no need for spoilers, but that can't begin to prepare you for all the laughs! There is situational and verbal humor, a really interesting plot, and an even more devastating Mr Darcy!
Jannie Meisberger is the fun narrator for this one, too.

A fun, quirky version of a classic

What if you take a beloved classic novel and tweaked the story and the characters just a bit? Perhaps make certain characters a little more intelligent, some more likable and others more catty.

Barbara Silkstone has done just that. In this version, Mr Darcy is more communicative, Mr Bennett has more of a backbone, Mrs Bennett has darker and more catty intentions, Lydia is more intelligent and redeemable, and Mr Collins is just as socially awkward but slightly more intelligent and infinitely more likeable. Yet, there are incidents and phrases that you can recognised from the original Pride and Prejudice story by Jane Austen. And that makes it all more fun!

Jannie Meisberger does a wonderful job of bringing the story and characget a to life. She remains in period context through the narration, which I personally appreciate very much.

Overall, a fun and interesting take on Pride and Prejudice.

A what if book!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I love pride and prejudice, so I thought I will give this a go. It had moments where I thought that might actually happen and other moments where I did not believe they would do such a thing.
The story does go like pride and prejudice but with what if this happens. So instead of Darcy disliking Eliza at first, what if he falls instantly in love with her when he first sees her. This is what the book is about. There are a lot of similarity and difference between this and the original book. I loved Darcy in this even though he is more softer then the original. However I did not like Eliza to begin with. I found her to be really stubborn and naive, which is understandable but I expected her to take on board what others tell her.
The book is OK but I prefer the original more. I would still recommend it to those who love pride and prejudice. It is still an interesting read.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

The narrator was a good choice for this book however, some characters did sound similar when others sounded differently. I liked how she voiced lady Catherine de Bourgh and Mrs Bennet.

Do you think Darcy and Elizabeth Serendipity needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I love follow up books. It is interesting to see what authors/other people think what would happen next.

Any additional comments?
