Like the curate's egg - good in parts.

I enjoyed this in the beginning. The storyline seemed a pleasant and believable continuation of the original book in the first part, but sadly descended to pure melodrama in the later part of the story. Not Jane Austen at all, sadly.
In addition, it gradually became clear that the author was struggling to keep to Miss Austen's style of prose and it became very laboured and contrived. There were also one or two Americanisms - Gotten - ugh! which are not seen in British writing today, let alone in the early part of the 19th century. This completely spoiled the mood for me and I spent the rest of the book too conscious of the language used to be able to fully enjoy it.

For me, the best part was the narration. He voice is clear, her diction good and she coped very well with even the most convoluted of sentences. A pleasure to listen to, even if the book itself was only OK.

An enjoyable story, worth the listen!

Would you listen to Dearest, Loveliest Elizabeth: Pride and Prejudice Continues again? Why?

Yes. It is a story you can listen to in mixed company without fear. I would happily listen to this again.

What did you like best about this story?

Many people don't like the fact that there seems to be two story lines. Personally, I like it. Perhaps I would have liked to see both stories intertwined for the length of the novel rather than being two separate stories, but I still found it very enjoyable.

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

I understand I am in the minority, but I did not care for the narration. I thought all of the men either whined or sounded condescending. For me, it made it a difficult listen
