Great narrator! I'm a fan of Ms. Shaffer.
And as an updated versions of the classic P&P this is one of the best and enjoyable.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
Probably the last few chapters of Elizabeth's character. Yes, she has a certain archetype, and she had one bad experience, but does that one mildly bad experience really have to set up her whole personality? If her backstory with her family was a little more explored or if she had more reason to hate rich people, I wouldn't complain. That whole trait just fell flat and a bit obnoxious towards the end for me. Her whole Best in show premise kind of undermines her hatred for people with money. Don't these dog shows only accept purebreds? Are not purebreds expensive to start with? And the ending was a bit rushed with an obvious win.
What did you like best about this story?
Probably Darcy. For the most part he came across a little funny. I enjoyed his inner monologue and his banter with Elizabeth is fun; especially the scene where he is overseeing Charles and quotes from the handbook proper form for a dog. Loved the innuendos.
Have you listened to any of Caroline Shaffer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
This would be my first. I enjoyed it for the most part, but for me, it was a one time listen.
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
I feel like I have, only the names were changed to Elizabeth and Darcy (which is what originally drew me in). Since I am a romantic, probably yes.
Any additional comments?
It was a nice light read. As a Pride and Prejudice fan, I was excited to hear the few lines and quotes from the original. It is fun to hear variations on the classic, so aside from a bit of an irritating Elizabeth, I enjoyed this book.
