    What could possibly make a proper gentleman come completely undone? What if Elizabeth Bennet accepted the proposal of another before she met Mr. Darcy again? In Abigail Reynolds' bold and playful retelling of the Austen classic, a devastated Mr. Darcy must decide how far he is willing to go to win the woman he loves. Consumed by jealousy, he knows that winning her will throw them both into scandal and disgrace, but losing her is unbearable. Mr. Darcy is going to have to fight for his love, and his life. . .

    What made the experience of listening to Mr. Darcy's Undoing the most enjoyable?

    I just love this story and have read it before in the past, and wanted to be able to listen to it while working and driving.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Abigail Reynolds is one of my favorite authors and I love her Pride and Prejudice variations. This one had more sex than some, but I loved the addition of Mr. Covington as a rival for Mr. Darcy's affection. Also, there is one particular scene where Mr. Darcy believes his love for Elizabeth is hopeless and he decides to go to Vienna for a few months. Before he leaves he says a private goodbye to Elizabeth, which ends up completely changing everything.


    How could the performance have been better?

    A different person to read. The reader had a very poor English accent that was very distracting, and she had a tendency to pronounce places and names incorrectly at times. Also, beware that this is not exactly an unabridged version. I have read the book at least twice and found myself missing scenes, so I picked up my copy of the book and read along for a while and noticed that scenes and paragraphs were summarized or skipped all together. This didn't happen all the time, but I noticed it on occasion.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall I enjoyed this book, and I hope that the rest of Abigail Reynolds books are converted to audio because I'd listen to them all.
