Summary

As Britain settles into a short-lived peace, the characters of Pride and Prejudice pick up very nearly where the novel left off, in a new series of stories focused on love and family. Elizabeth Bennet finds the joy of her marriage and honeymoon are followed by the demands of becoming Mrs. Darcy, all while helping her shy new younger sister come out into society. Georgiana Darcy must deal with more suitors than she expected, when she fears nothing more than once again being persuaded to think she is in love with the wrong man.

GOD!

The story is enjoyable, the relationships feel real, the characters are interesting, BUT FOR GOD SAKE VERONA COULD YOU PUT SOME F***ING EMOTION OR VARIETY IN YOUR VOICE. Half the time I wasn't sure who was talking, almost all the characters sound the same. Other than that, excellent work

Lovely. Easy to listen to.

If you like Austen fan fiction, you will enjoy this. Very little angst, but it was nice to see the character development. Original characters are also believable. Clean romance. Narrated well. I will probably buy the rest of the series at some point.

Very Good Continuation, Could have been Excellent

First I would like to say I'm aware that this is not Jane Austin but someone making a story to follow her excellent book. So that being said there is a definite difference in writing style, that although in some cases lacking is not bad or in any way a let down. There were however several details and instances where a clear lack of knowledge of the ending of Pride and Prejudice shown. Specifically with how the book starts and several details regarding Mr. Bennet. Overall though I dont think it harms the story, but is definitely not necessary or could have been adjusted to more match the previous book. The story therefore I found quite enjoyable the characters well written though sometimes lacking in depth and the world enlargened. I would say the biggest problem I had was with the Narrator. Her performance wasnt really bad but definitely not good either. There were constance instances of her seemingly running out of breath and random volume changes in her voice. Although she did have an actual English accent, which I found nice, she never attempted to change her voice when speaking the different characters. Specifically when switch between Male and female, but the most annoying thing I found was the random sound of pages turning and what seemed to me to be a computer mouse clicking. She did however read with a good tempo and didnt mispronounce any words. The story definitely saved this Narrator as it was engaging and although sometimes lacking in depth, was very enjoyable and I will be reading the next book.

Worst variation ever

This book dragged on unnecessary details, very little in terms of a story. There was no plot what so ever. I never write reviews but this was so bad that merit one. Performance was terrible. It was the same voice for all characters and narrated in a sleepy tone as if the reader was bored. Don’t waste your time or money. It’s just not worth it. I had to force myself to continue to listen to it thinking perhaps there is something else to it. But alas... I was sorely disappointed.

Very well written

I believe if Jane Austen were alive and willing to write a sequel. This would be it. I have read multiple remakes and sequels... but none have come close to until this one... I love it.

A Constant Love

Good storyline. Narration was somewhat difficult to understand at times. Some parts seemed to rather drag on too long.

For the P & P lover

This is one of the better JAFF I've read. I won an audio book copy. Didn't love the reader so much as many of her sentences seemed to end in the same inflection making me think there was something more to come even when there wasn't. Also not a lot of change in the voice of different characters. Most of the time I couldn't really hear the snottiness, anger, aggravation etc of anyone. Everyone was just serene. That being said, it was a pretty well written sequel to P&P. I could envision most of the events as true to JA form. I don't think JA would have made references to the marital bed as this author did but there was nothing graphic.
It would have been a dissatisfying ending if there were not more books planned since everyone is on their way to having their happily ever after but they don't quite reach the HEA moment in this book. Engaged but not married, pregnant but no birth, home from war but no established future etc....
I think my only real complaint in the writing was every time we got descriptions and explanations of naval stuff in letters or in person, the pacing of the story lagged... I got bored with those parts. But they were short lived and the pace picked up again...

An immensely satisfying continuation...

First of all, this is a longer than usual P&P variation, I find, but that's okay because I have really enjoyed and savored this book. It is well written, not a lot of action, some angst, no wicked villains at the center - but a mild, elegant continuation of the story of our dear characters' lives. The narrator did a good job on all but I did feel that when it came to Elizabeth Darcy's voice.the narrator could have put more inflection into Elizabeth's voice that would portray her character, wit and personality better. But after listening to a number of P&P variations, I appreciate that this narrator was pleasant to listen to.

Great story brought to life

I read this book a while ago and I just started listening to audio books. I won this copy in a giveaway. This is a continuation of P&P with a heavy focus on Georgiana. The narrator did a great job bringing the different characters to life and made a very good story even better.
