Klett is one of my favorite narrators. She has a beautiful voice and does a great job capturing the different characters. Her voice is soothing yet keeps you engaged.
I very much enjoyed the story. Initially, I found it confusing to have the names we associate with Pride and Prejudice connected to characters with different characteristics. My preference would have been to have this story but to use different names – it would have lessened my confusion. However, I take it that this was done to draw in fans of P and P or perhaps as some sort of fan fiction.
In any case, once I got over my initial confusion, I was engaged in this lovely story. The characters were at times amusing and charming. Just a delightful and relaxing audio!

This was such I delightful P&P variation -- I have no doubt that I will listen to it again. The differences from the original only added to the charm. It was so nice not to have s book filled with Caroline Bingley's pettiness and unnecessary angst. I enjoyed Lady Catherine's manner and even found the sterner Mr. Bennett engaging.

Where does Remember the Past: ...Only as It Gives You Pleasure rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It's in my top 10 of the JAFF audiobooks I have and I have a lot!
Who was your favorite character and why?
Strangely enough, Lady Catherine. You'll have to listen to (or read) the book to find out why!
What does Elizabeth Klett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?
Elizabeth Klett is the best narrator of JAFF audiobooks I've come across so far. She manages to make all of the characters distinct and does the male characters really well, which is not always easy for a female narrator. This in turn also gives the listener an insight into the characters that you might not get when just reading.
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
Can this be the real Lady Catherine de Bourgh?
Any additional comments?
I really enioyed listening to this audiobook. Elizabeth Klett is a masterful narrator. Maria Grace is a fantastic story teller. The two combined with a unique variation of the tale of Darcy and Elizabeth make a totally enjoyable listening experience.
This audiobook would be suitable for all audiences.
