BAD. SO VERY VERY BAD

What disappointed you about Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy?

I love Darcy and Elizabeth. I think I must have read Pride and Prejudice at least once a year since I was 12. The couple in this story bear no resemblance in any way to the characters I love so much. It reads like bad fanfiction written by someone who saw the movie once.


What could Abigail Reynolds have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I will not be bothering with any other offerings from this author.


Would you be willing to try another one of Rachel E. Hurley’s performances?

It's difficult to tell with something so painfully bad as this how much of said badness the narrator may or may not be responsible for. Presumably she made it the whole way through the story at least once, which is a lot more than I could manage.


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

All of the above and more, but not in a good way.

frustratingly 'proper' but romantic and tender too

If you could sum up Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy in three words, what would they be?

loving
ignorant
romantic


Who was your favorite character and why?

It has to be Darcy because I'm totally besotted with him. He's strong, thoughtful, loving and caring. He's far too 'proper and aloof' at first but then learns he is not the centre of the universe , just slightly off centre, and becomes lovable and appealing.


What about Rachel E. Hurley’s performance did you like?

she has an easy voice to listen to. it's at just the right pitch and her tone and pronounciation is just right.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

When Elizabeth contemplated suicide i was moved but I also wanted to shake her. That was too selfish for Elizabeth even though she tried to argue she was being selfless.
Devoting her time to Darcy in his illness was also moving as was his amnesia to her attention throughout his illness. Sometimes the good old stiff upper lip is far too frustrating.


Any additional comments?

Easy to read, very enjoyable for all P&P fans who like to read variations in the 'lives' of these wonderful characters.
