Maidens and Matrons

The story was very sweet, if much more long winded than necessary. I understand that the author wanted to recreate the series of misunderstandings that were the original, but every thing seemed drawn out. That being said there were some great scenes. I loved Lizzy's worries over being rude.
My major gripe is the voices of the "matrons." Mrs Bennett, lady Catherine, and Lady Matlock. they are way too nasal and read way to fast.
Am I glad I bought this? Yes

Nice Idea, but Not Worth Purchase

What disappointed you about The Houseguest?

I found this on a list of books to read if you love Jane Austen novels, but was pretty disappointed. The idea behind the retelling is great, but it's poorly executed. The characters do not seem to be true to the original, and it doesn't seem to follow Jane Austen's voice at all. Mr. Darcy's narratives seem to be the worst. Overall, it seemed too silly for me to finish.

A delicious experience

What made the experience of listening to The Houseguest the most enjoyable?

The reader's voice was varied, interesting and gave a delicious sense of confiding secrets about the characters.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Darcy, as he was as infuriating as ever!

What does Brigid Lohrey bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The voices of all the different characters were wonderfully conveyed.

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I laughed, or more accurately, smiled often,but also became involved in the love story again.

Any additional comments?

A thoroughly enjoyable reading and I will try others by Brigid Lohrey.
