Loved The Little boy

I got this book via audiobook boom. The little boy is the main character to me in this story. I have read many adaptations of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth and by far this is one of the better ones. Elizabeth's son ahs a vivid imagination and uses it to get his mother and Mr. Darcy together. This one starts out very different from the other adaptations and also from the original story. But it is a good listen and the narration moved the story along.

Really enjoyed this set!

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

I really enjoyed the re-telling of a classic. The three titles were all following the same storyline so it was fun to follow along.

What did you like best about this story?

How Elizabeth's young son wove through all the stories.

What does Pearl Hewitt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I am a big fan of Pearl's work and love how she brings the characters to life. Her performance of the various characters, and there are a lot, are great and unique. I don't know how she keeps them all straight! She does a great job of stepping into each characters shoes and makes them all unique. I though she did a great job with the child's character in particular.

Any additional comments?

Disclosure: A copy of this audio book was sent to me by the narrator. All of the above opinions are my own.
