I really love Pride and Prejudice adaptations; almost as much as I love super natural romances so I thought this book would be awesome... boy was I wrong. The character development was almost nonexistent. Darcy and Elizabeth are turned into polar opposites from the original novel; Darcy is prissy while Elizabeth is winey. I tried very hard to finish the audio, but the narrator coupled with the poor quality of story had me turning it off before I reached the middle.

What made the experience of listening to Vampire Darcy's Desire the most enjoyable?
I enjoyed the action. Though the story deviates from the original novel substantially, that makes it better than it would have been. You must look at this book as taking place in a possible alternate universe.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Once I got past the first few chapters, yes I enjoyed it enough to want to listen all in one sitting.
Any additional comments?
You can't read this book and expect it to be on par with either the original or Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which I consider to be the first and best alteration of an Austin classic. It's a fun trash novel that I definitely enjoyed once I stopped comparing it to the original.
I'll be honest, my expectations of this were low, and true, it's no great work of literature, but it was sexy, romantic, exciting and a good bit of fun. Unlike some P&P based stories it is not an alternative view or a sequel... in fact it abandons any resemblance to the original story very early on, keeping the characters and taking them on a different journey... a vivid and compelling supernatual journey. It won't challenge you... Parts may even make you raise your eyebrows.. but if you like both Jane Austen and Vampires and want some indulgent entertainment this is it.
