Summary

The simple truth is proven that sometimes a gentleman never knows his heart until a lady comes along to introduce it to him. When Mr. Darcy encounters Elizabeth Bennet injured after a fall, his concern for her welfare cracks the shell of his carefully guarded heart, and a charming man emerges. Elizabeth sees an appealing side of him she never believed possible from the stoic, proud master of Pemberley. They find the simple gentlemanly act of assisting her home will test both Mr. Darcy’s resolve to keep his heart safe and Elizabeth’s conviction that this is the last man on earth she might have ever been prevailed upon to marry. Soon, falling for Mr. Darcy becomes a real possibility.

Poor choice of Narrator

Book was OK but the narrator was a poor choice.

Narrator spoke like he was reading a Rhold Dahl children's book. So the emotion was not conveyed. Made the story rather flat.

to be avoided

-Blatantly plagiarizes several movies (especially the Keira Knightley version) without any seeming remorse or attempt at originality. It made me uncomfortable to have supported a book so heavily plagiarized from another script.
-Every character is a professor X mutant who can read everyone's minds and emotions. Example: Darcy helps Lizzy off a horse right in the beginning and her father apparently notices her holding her breath in that moment. (What?) And then deduces that she loves Darcy. Every character operates like some magical empath.
-Mr. Bennet is a Disney dad who hasn't spent one single minute of his life in the Regency. What he does to his daughter Mary was abominable, nonsensical, and entirely illogical given the time period.
-I really wasn't feeling the casual fatphobia of this book.
-Repetitive vocab (The word "blush" was used 3 times in one paragraph.)
-Reads like a soap opera. Wickham is ridiculous as the scheming mustache-twirling villain.

Random scene I hated: Darcy staying at Bingley's house, emptying his glass, and tossing the glass into the fire for no good reason. As if Darcy would just casually destroy someone else's property, and have no concern for the service staff, who have to pick glass shards out of the fireplace in the morning.

I did not like the narration. It was very over the top. The sing-song cadence makes one rather seasick.

Great Chemistry and Humor

I love the dialogue between the charcters. So much wit! I also loved the chemistry between Elizabeth and Darcy. This book also had a very refreshing take on the character of Mr Bennett that I can appreciate. Well worth the read!

Good story

This book is fast paced, even if it is more than 10 hours long. It never lags and thank goodness there is not so much angst - just enough to make it interesting. Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy do not hate each other all through the book. Mr. Bennett is more likable, Mr. Bingly is more solid and engaging. Mr. Wickham gets his just punishment. Mr. Collins is ridiculous and stupid. All in all a great book with a very good narrator. He narrates a little slowly, so I bumped up the speed to 1.1

What a great twist on the original

This is a really fun listen, the narration took me a while to adapt to because the reader voices characters in a much older tone of voice than they are... so that was a little weird. But once I got used to it, it's fine. I like that this story starts at the point where the characters start building trust rather than half of the story building up angst and half building trust. I like it because you get a lot more witty dialogue between the main characters and you get a bit more insight into support characters.

The dialogue in this variation is great, there are so many witty one liners throughout. I seriously laughed many, many times throughout the book. It also borrows a lot of dialogue from the original, which I really like in PPV stories. One thing that this author did which I really liked was have familiar phrases from the OG stated by different characters in this book. It was a great mix up,

I'm not a die-hard deep PPV reader, but I seem to have been on a kick the past few months. I'd say over the past couple years I've read/listened to about 12 or 15? And of those I'd say this one is up in the top 1/3? I'd definitely say it is worth a credit, the narration was the only factor that kept me from giving it 5 stars, and as I said, the reader is good I just think his performace was way too old for the age set of the characters.

Lovely and Low Angst

An act of gentlemanly gallantry at the start of the story allows ODC to start off with fewer misunderstandings and therefore arrive on better terms very early. Likewise, Jane and Bingley don’t suffer an unnecessary separation so even their relationship is low angst. There is still villainy afoot with some of our usual suspects trying to harm or separate ODC, so the story is by no means boring.

With Jane relatively easily attached to Bingley, and no need for that misunderstanding, she is not the character that spends much of the story either sick, too reserved or reticent, melancholy or mean. This story, therefore, gives us a better view of the relationship between the sisters, giving Jane a chance to be warm and even funny.

I’d say my only complaint would be that, given the way the story is assembled, Mr.Collins really didn’t need to be so awful as a prospective suitor for any of our heroines. Even with the interesting twist Mr. Bennet brings to the story, Mr. Collins is just a little more over the top than needed.

David Pickering is wonderful as a narrator in the story as well.

Delightful Reimagining

This is a delightful reimagining of the classic story. I enjoyed hearing familiar lines used in unique ways and occasionally out of the mouths of different characters. I also relished the additional interactions between Elizabeth and Darcy, as well as a greater inclusion of their thoughts. This story offers that which every Pride and Prejudice fan wants: more time with the characters they love!

Entertaining Variation of P&P

I really enjoyed this variation. The author took the story line in a direction that would please Jane Austen herself, I believe.

Falling for Mr. Darcy and Stevie Zimmerman!

Every time I hear a variation of Pride and Prejudice a fall for Mr. Darcy and this was no exception. Great story! Soothe my soul for Darcy and Lizzie content. Still yearning for more spicy scenes specially narrating by Stevie Zimmerman. Honestly I try listening to other narrators and I can’t when it comes to pride and prejudice variations. Am I a crazy person? Yes. This was a good buy though
