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

I've listened to it three times. It is so well done and satisfied all my revenge issues with the original book. Thank you! Keep writing. You have a gift. Maybe you will consider a Sense and Sensibility adventure. Please, please! xoxo

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.
