Publisher's Summary

Mr. Bennet discovers his days are numbered, so he immediately begins to set his affairs - and his five unmarried daughters - in order. Knowing they will fare best should at least one of them find a suitable husband, he cannot refuse any respectable suitors.

The high-spirited Elizabeth suspects something isn't right in the halls of Longbourn, but nothing prepares her for a certain haughty gentleman from Derbyshire. While Mr. Darcy is exceedingly wealthy and handsome, in Elizabeth's eyes, he is also proud, high-handed, and insulting. And unfortunately, desperately in love with her.

Suddenly, Elizabeth is forced to rethink her previous opinions. And accept a choice she never had the chance to make.

    "Review on Unwilling by Elizabeth Adams"

    A delightful P&P variation. The pacing is good, and the characters well developed. I enjoyed Elizabeth Adams' writing style tremendously. I tend to find most P&P variations drag along the way as the story unfolds, but this one is very well-done. Of course, the author doesn't really dwell on unpleasant characters; there is no antagonists in the story: Lady Catherine and Wickham are nowhere to be seen, but the story itself is cleverly-plotted. It is different than any other P&P variations I have read before, and I have to admit that it outshines most of them.
    The narrator has done a good job; at first I found it odd to have a male narrator , but it all turned out splendidly.

    "Another great story by Miss Adams"

    I really liked this story . Watching (or listening in this case) to Darcy & Elizabeth grow into a cherished love was very warm hearted . I loved the new Mr, Bennet & his silly wife . What a little vagary can do to a character is amazing

    Although the narrator was very good & has a lovely speaking voice It was a little hard listening to Lizzy & Jane with a male voice trying to be feminine LOL 😆

    I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK

    Story
    "classic pride and prejudice vaguery"

    I loved the story, with Mr Bennett taking more control of his daughters future, so much so I was ok with the more worldly Jane marrying Mr Walker instead of the unreliable Mr Bingley.
    The story starts in Hunsford with Elizabeth accepting Mr Darcy at the request of her ailing father.
    We follow Elizabeth and Darcy from the seaside, to London and into the Friday month of their wedding, as they learn more about each other. Darcy learns more slowly about his pride and Elizabeth learns slowly to live him.
    The epilogue is my favorite part.
    The narration was great, with him changing voices for the different characters.

    Story
    "nothing happened"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Being an avid P&P reader, I was disappointed that there were no challenges for the two lovers.


    Would you recommend Unwilling to your friends? Why or why not?

    Really a disappointing retelling and would not recommend it.


    What about Mark Topping’s performance did you like?

    better than average


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    not really
