Although I'm not a fan of novellas, I look forward to Anne Perry's short Christmas mysteries each year. So I had high expectations for this one. Unfortunately this one is, well, disappointing. It pains me to say it but this one falls short on pretty much every measure.
Maybe it’s a problem with expectations since I was so excited to listen to this book. What’s not to love, PD James and Austen? Don’t get your hopes up and don’t bother with this one. Sorry!
I’ve read other “Austen-add-ons” and enjoyed them very much. James somehow makes characters I came to love in the original novel unlikeable.
The narrator was fine.
I couldn't even listen to all of it and I always finish books.
I loved this book when I read it so I was so excited to see a book from Anna Dean on Audible I didn't bother to read the descr.... and didn't realize the same book was published under the title, Bellfield Hall. So don't be disappointed like I was... if you've already read Bellfield Hall.
Otherwise, there's nothing disappointing about this book! Don't miss it!
