Publisher's Summary

After being dragged to the 2005 movie Pride and Prejudice by her mother, sixteen-year-old Elizabeth's life changes when Matthew Macfadyen's Mr. Darcy appears on the screen.

Lizzie falls hard and makes a promise to herself that she will settle for nothing less than her own Mr. Darcy. This ill-advised pledge threatens to ruin any chance of finding true love. During the six intervening years, she has refused to give any interested suitors a chance. They weren't Mr. Darcy enough.

Coerced by her roommate, Elizabeth agrees to give the next interested guy ten dates before she dumps him. That guy is Chad, a kind and thoughtful science teacher and swim coach. While she's dating Chad, her dream comes true in the form of a wealthy bookstore owner named Matt Dawson, who looks and acts like her Mr. Darcy. Of course she has to follow her dream. But as Elizabeth simultaneously dates a regular guy and the dazzling Mr. Dawson, she's forced to re-evaluate what it was she loved about Mr. Darcy in the first place.

    I wanted to. Wish I could have

    Story
    "I didn't want it to end!"

    My phone was in view as I listened the audible version of this book. I could see there was only 10 minutes of narration left. It was hard to except this great story was coming to a close. I truly didn't want it to end.

    This book is easy to loose yourself in and very hard to put down. It's the perfect mixture of romance, happiness, suspense and unpredictability.

    If you go with the Audible version you will also find the narrator to have a delightful/easy on the ears voice.

    If you are reading the reviews, I'm telling you now to pick up this novel. It's a great read!

    Story
    "Clean and boring."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    In about hour 2, I got sick of "he said," "I said," "she said." There are synonyms for "said," the author just didn't use any.


    What could Karey White have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not drawn out the story for so long. I was stupid when I was 22/23, but c'mon... Lizzie is too indecisive. Also, instead of "said," the author could have used words like replied, exclaimed, protested, etc.

    It ended too quickly.
    "I wanna be with you!"
    "You sure?"
    "Yup."
    YAY happy ending.

    And that was it. Then it ended. What happened to them? I went through 8 hours for a quick ending? NO! Tell me what happens! Do they marry? Do their families get along? Why did he forgive her so quickly? Are they together forever? I want to know! Womp womp, no epilogue.


    Which character – as performed by Heidi Baker – was your favorite?

    I can't really pinpoint, Heidi Baker gave a great performace overall. Her voice made the story tolerable.


    Was My Own Mr. Darcy worth the listening time?

    Not really. In the third hour, I groaned when I noticed there were 5 more hours of the story. I still soldiered on.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great concept. I love P&P, so this was an exciting prospective read. And then I listened to it. And I regretted it. I was looking forward to listening to a clean and wholesome romance (needed a break from the sexy books), so I'm glad this book had that going for it. I really did groan when I found out I had 5 hours left in the book. I just wanted it to end. I feel like I completed an audio marathon.

    I loved Chad. Matt was a bit of a jerk, but he could have been worse. I wanted to smack Lizzie upside the head.

    I'm not into interior design, but the author did a great job with these parts. Those were probably my favorite bits of the book. She desribed these parts so well, I was starting to think, "Hey, maybe this would be cool for the future." Then, I continued to be bored by the rest of the story.

    I prefer audio.

    The comparisons to the characters in the novel, Pride & Prejudice, and the characters in this book.

    I listened to the book while traveling. Was easy to start up again where I left off. I listened to the book in 3-4 sittings.

    "Romance the 19th century way!"
    What made the experience of listening to My Own Mr. Darcy the most enjoyable?

    I am a fiction book person, but being a "Pride and Prejudice' fan myself, this book particulary caught my eye. I had to read it! I must say neither the author nor the audio artist disappointed me! The story is woven so beautifully in words that every young girl in her early twenties/ who has been in love will be able to relate to it. All the emotions of Elizabeth are expressed so explicitly and aptly in the book by the author that you can't help but almost feel it yourself. I give much credit to the audio artist here as well who has emoted all the expressions so accurately and has modulated her voice so efficiently for the characters that inspite of only one artist reading the book, you can very well differentiate between all characters and almost draw their sketch mentally in your mind based on her voice.


    What other book might you compare My Own Mr. Darcy to and why?

    I wouldn't want to compare the book with any other book. It has a beauty of its own.


    Have you listened to any of Heidi Baker’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No. All the emotions of Elizabeth are expressed so explicitly and aptly in the book by the author that you can't help but almost feel it yourself. I give much credit to the audio artist here as well who has emoted all the expressions so accurately and has modulated her voice so efficiently for the characters that inspite of only one artist reading the book, you can very well differentiate between all characters and almost draw their sketch mentally in your mind based on her voice.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Fine Wine - For love never goes out of style!


    Any additional comments?

    Being an ardent fan of the classic Pride and Prejudice myself, thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. The characters are so well written, the plot unfolds simply, yet so beautifully and the voice-over added the cherry on top! :)

    "A sweet, enjoyable story"

    This romance was not over the top, overly dramatic, or heart rending. It was a sweet story. Although I knew what the ending was going to be by the second page, I wanted to keep reading to live the experience with the sweet, naive heroine.

    "Toe tingling romance"

    It was refreshingly clean and flirty and fun! I couldn't stop listening! It has smooth writing and I could easily put it down and come right back to it when I needed to. I kept thinking I knew what was going to happen and then I didn't! It made me think of my own romance and how lovely it is- what a great thing fora writer to be able to do!
    The narrator is a little too bubbly for my personal taste and read a few things differently than I would have but she did a great job setting the right tone for each scene and the book in total. So glad I listened! (Even if I did stay up too late!) ;)

    "Fun, Clean, and Perky"
    What made the experience of listening to My Own Mr. Darcy the most enjoyable?

    Normally, I prefer to curl up with my books, and I have the ebook version, so I very well could have. My commute to work needed something other than the same music, so I decided to add the audible version to my ride. I confess that after hearing Heidi read, it was a different experience. I wanted to hear her voice when I experienced the story. I read a chapter on my ebook, but it just wasn't the same. She added so much to the story that I wanted to hear her voice finish it for me. She had a voice that exactly matched what I imagined Elizabeth to sound like. This is a clean, sweet romance.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved the quirky main character, Elizabeth, and Chad, of course.


    Which character – as performed by Heidi Baker – was your favorite?

    Elizabeth


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I chuckled at some spots and wanted to shake Elizabeth sometimes and yell "What are you thinking??" We all can have our blind spots, and she certainly had hers.
