summary of story is misleading

What did you like best about Scent of Desire? What did you like least?

I love just about anything P&P. I appreciated that the author seemed to have the same take on the affection and relationship between Darcy & Elizabeth that I like to believe existed but was never written about by Jane Austen. I also liked that in the brief bit you saw of the other characters, this author seemed to hold true to the characters that Jane Austen created.

I gave the "story" 3 out of 5 stars, because while nothing major happened, I felt that it was written well and the author had a good grasp on the characters.

What I liked least is that I feel the summary is misleading. The summary reads "Their betrothal is not without its own difficulties, however, and a single misunderstanding may place all of their future happiness in jeopardy.", but nothing major happened. Yes, there was a MINOR misunderstanding, but it didn't "jeopardize" the engagement or their future happiness and lasted for all of 5 minutes.

This is a short story that gives the reader/listener a glimpse into one version of what took place during the short engagement between Darcy and Elizabeth, (nothing unexpected - walks together, stealing kisses, etc.) and their first night "together" as man and wife. If you are interested in that, then read/listen to it. If you are looking for more, skip it.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

No reaction really. Nothing unexpected or unusual occurred.

Have you listened to any of Stevie Zimmerman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Stevie Zimmerman's performance was as good as ever.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

N/A. Too short to be a movie and not enough occurred to warrant a short film.
