    It is 1803, six years since Elizabeth and Darcy embarked on their life together at Pemberley, Darcy’s magnificent estate. Their peaceful, orderly world seems almost unassailable. Elizabeth has found her footing as the chatelaine of the great house. They have two fine sons, Fitzwilliam and Charles. Elizabeth’s sister Jane and her husband, Bingley, live nearby; her father visits often; there is optimistic talk about the prospects of marriage for Darcy’s sister Georgiana. And preparations are under way for their much-anticipated annual autumn ball.

    Story

    This Charming, Loyal and Loquacious story chaptured me from the beginning. She begins in the tongue-in-cheek manner that begins Pride. It is the untrustworthy voices of the Gossops that return us to the world first created by Miss Austen. I laughed aloud to hear them describe the events of Pride. Although nothing comes close to the rapier sharp writing of Miss Austen, P.D. James does an admiral job of attempting to maintain that style. Although toward the end, I did have fatigue from the explaining, explaining and more explaining that had to tie all the loose ends together. It was fun to be with Elizabeth and Darcy again. And I did want to reach through my earbuds and throttle Lydia. Definately worth the time to listen.

    Katniss Everdeen continues to struggle to protect herself and her family from the Capitol in this second novel from the best-selling Hunger Games trilogy.

    Story

    I loved the Hunger Games. This followup is an excrutiating and derivative insult to the first book. There is no point to putting Katniss through another games to advance her narrattive . She does not gain insight, skill or anything valuable that she didn't already possess. It is gratuitous and dissappointing in the extreme. If a sequel HAD to come (and I think the Hunger Games is exquisite on its own), the Mockingjay would have done adequately without this slog in between.
