It's Darcy and Elizabeth's wedding day, and the journey is just beginning as Jane Austen's beloved Pride and Prejudice characters embark on the greatest adventure of all: marriage and a life together filled with surprising passion, tender self-discovery, and the simple joys of every day.
As their love story unfolds in this most romantic of Jane Austen sequels, Darcy and Elizabeth reveal to each other how their relationship blossomed. From misunderstanding to perfect understanding and harmony, theirs is a marriage filled with romance, sensuality, and the beauty of a deep, abiding love.

"This is probably the hottest Austen sequel yet." (Publishers Weekly)

A little more character development so they are less 2nd rate cardboard cut outs. They certainly don't resemble the character from the book, I can't comment on the characters as portrayed in the 2005 film as I gave that a miss.
That if it was meant to be softcore porn (really? at least 1, and often 2 or 3 poorly written euphemistically written sex scenes per chapter?) it failed as those sex scenes were more comedic than arousing
That the reader managed to slog her way through the book. She had a pleasant enough voice and it's a pity she didn't have better book to narrate.
The sex athletes, Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy, they would be better suited to move to Los Angeles and shooting porn.
The book is not based on Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, but on Hollywood's interpretation of that book, and we all know Hollywood doesn't bother too much about sticking to the original. I enjoyed Jane Austen's book, (which surprised even me). This book however, the characters, were not the same characters as in Jane Austen's book, except in name. They were in fact not even characters as at no time did I even feel thy could be real people. Cardboard cut-outs, 2nd rate porn actors or shadow puppets yes, real people, no.The only bright spot for me was that I hadn't used my credits for a couple of months and so using one credit doesn't feel like spending real money for this. I was expecting something a little more like P.D.James "Death Comes To Pemberley" as a follow-up to Jane Austen's book, but it's not even close. However I'm sure this has an audience with Hollywood housewives who also haven't read the book.
I am a Jane Austen enthusiast. I had hoped that this book would be a good sequel to her original work. How disappointing this book was. The author has made no attempt at any research about the place where this is set. The Derwent valley of Derbyshire in Northern England does not and never has had wild turkeys! Turkeys are native to America. There are no creeks in Derbyshire, many rivers, streams, brooks and becks but no creeks. I think the reader did a good job in reading this, she did it without laughing especially when reading the too frequent and badly written sex scenes of which there are far too many. The Darcys came across as shallow sexual athletes with very little character development. Other characters in this book are also poorly developed. Okay so I am probably not who this book was directed at, being a 66 year old male but I do enjoy a well written romance, and this is certainly not well written.
Narrative random in parts. Sounded as though breaks taken in middle of chapter so tone of narrator is ifferent halfway through. This gets distracting after a while.
Also story based on film scenes rather than book and this again is a little distracting in parts.
I enjoyed this intimate exploration of the relationship between Lizzie and Darcy. Both of them behaving as I would have hoped.
Lathan builds on the romantic notions we have, for years, woven around these iconic characters.
I will without a doubt purchase the next instalment.
The narration was superb and enjoyable.
"Oh. My. God. Mouth sounds."
I love this story, I've read it several times. But the woman that is reading this audio books has the most horrifying mouth sounds and turning down the volume didn't help. I had to turn it off. Seriously, if mouth sounds make you crazy, stay away from anything this narrator reads.
This is the worst book I could ever be prevailed upon to read. Boring and trite from the very beginning.
The best sequel of Pride and Prejudice EVER!!! Love the way Sharron Lathan writes! Amazing
"The narrater of this book was hideous."
Way over done
Three Sisters and Three Queens
Just the way she talked was terrible. I couldn't listen to it any more. I want my credit back.

"Bad technical issues."
Only if the technical problems are fixed. This book is not playing. The "intro" by the author is good; however, the actual book recording is not working at all!
Maybe ... make it "audible"!
Maybe ... make it "audible"!
Please fix the technical issues and I'll listen then will redo my comments. Please let me know what I can do. If it gets fixed, very good! Not fixed, I'll return this book w/o being able to listen to it.
"Book wont play correctly"
I'm trying to enjoy it, ive read the book before and wanted to enjoy it. It's just not working
I don't know I can't listen to the book correctly
"Amazing story of real love"
I think that the audio edition of this book gives more depth to the book. The characters truly come to life and you can hear the adoration, sarcasm, and humor in every sentence.
I believe that my favorite character will always be Fitzwilliam Darcy. He proves that all men have many layers to their lives. They must be able to be strong when most needed but also to be soft and gentle when occasion requires.
I've never listened to any of Corrie James's performances before so I don't have anything to compare it to.
I have read this series a few times in paperback and I loved it then but it truly comes to life in the audio edition.
A better author
Absolutely pathetic it proves you don't need talent to get a book published. It's a shame that this author used a classic like this to create utter garbage. What a waste of my time and money not to mention obliterating my expectations. Not even close.
