I would listen to this audiobook over and over again because it is incredibly compelling. And utterly believable. The story Ms Reynolds tells, could very well have happened, exactly that way. She manages to twist Ms Austen's plot in a subtle way but entirely true to the great author of romance herself.
Mr Darcy, because he is so much more amiable than in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice.
He is more human, more pliable, more compassionate, more reasonable. He sees where his faults lie and acts accordingly to it. Which gives him what he craves for: the way to Elizabeth's heart.
The first love scene in Darcy's bed. Here the two heroes are governed only by their mutual love.
Mr Wickham. Ms Reynolds paints him as I would never have pictured him at all. As a man to whom money means everything, literally.
Definitively! This is such a compelling story. You think you know what is coming but that is false. The story is goes deep into the human soul, at some times.
The way the characters are unravelled. Layer after layer is exposed, and all new turns take you by surprise.
The different voices to the different characters. It makes it easier to follow the plot line.
Before redemption comes sin.
The original story line about an uncomplicated, lively young American girl, determined to conquer the London Ton.
Most interesting: how Lydia conquers her Lord.
Least interesting: nothing.
I hadn't listened to Ms Rowan before, so I can't compare.
I frequently laughed and cried.
