Summary

Nature's a fickle thing. When four days of rain occur earlier in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice to trap Jane and Elizabeth Bennet at Netherfield Park, new romances, misunderstandings, and alignments are made. Volatile tempers never did well cooped up together. Not even when there's a chessboard to help pass the time. Fall in love with the romance of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet all over again in this new variation by author Elizabeth Ann West.

Brilliant!

I have loved this story since first reading it on the internet and was thrilled to find it on audible. While the narrator is not my first choice for a Darcy and Elizabeth story, I find that making use of the Narration Speed function in the audible player Has made listening to her much more enjoyable.
I do hope the rest of ms West’s books become available on audible soon, particularly the rest of the moralities of marriage series, as I don’t want to purchase the first two only to find I won’t be able to finish the story.
For those hesitating to bye this book due to the concerns raised by other reviewers over the choice of narrator, I urge you to give it a try, for with such superb story telling narration is secondary, even for a picky person like me.

Enjoyable variation!

In this Pride and Prejudice variation, Lizzy and Jane are rained in during their stay at Netherfield Park. With four extra days with Bingley and Darcy, Lizzy and Jane learn more about their suitors and come a little closer to understanding each other.

I really enjoyed this one! With four extra days together, Lizzy and Darcy spent a lot of time on the page together, and their conversations were always fun. I loved that Lizzy was able to show her intelligence to Darcy with the chess match. Lady Catherine and Mr. Collins were awful versions of themselves, but luckily Darcy and a very sweet Mr. Bennet were there to save the day. I'll be reading this one again.

The narrator, in my opinion, wasn't the best choice for this story, I do prefer a British accent for the Pride and Prejudice variations. I would recommend listening to the sample before purchasing. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

Narrator was awful

Quit within the first chapter. The narrator was terrible. Gave story 3 starts because I had to rate it, and I didn’t want to either give a misleading high rating for a book I couldn’t listen to, or short the author for her narrator’s performance. I’ll try the kindle edition instead.

A game of chess played while learning to love

Where does To Capture Mr. Darcy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The book was an awesome read. The audiobook lacks something to make the characters come to life the way others have done for me.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mr. Bingley was so happy and oblivious to Darcy attraction to Elizabeth and Caroline obsession with the couple. His character never fails to amaze me.

What aspect of Nina Price’s performance would you have changed?

I’m not a fan sorry to say. Darcy, Lizzy, Jane, the Bingleys should come to life and she missed the mark.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I usually don’t stop listening to a book once I start, so I’m unsure if I count. I look forward to more of Elizabeth Ann West audiobooks, maybe with a new narrator.

Any additional comments?

If I can make a recommendation to anyone interested in Pride and Prejudice variations, all of the authors books make for excellent reads. I have never been disappointed.

the voice of the narrator is horrible

Would you try another book from Elizabeth Ann West and/or Nina Price?

Yes, I would try another book by the author, i actually would not mind buying the good. the narrator is horrible!!! It is because of the narrator that i stopped listening to the book. The voice is bland, her accent is horrible, she is very flat, makes reading mistakes, just bad, bad bad!!! get another narrator so i can go back to listening to the story!!

What was most disappointing about Elizabeth Ann West’s story?

I could not get into the story because of the bad narrator for the book!!

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Nina Price?

anyone but her . . .

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

i cannot say about the story . . . i will have to read the book because the audio is horrible

Any additional comments?
