    What if... Lizzy, as she gets to know Darcy, finds him undeniably attractive and her impulses win out over her sense of propriety? What if... Madly in love and mutually on fire, their passion anticipates their wedding? In To Conquer Mr. Darcy, instead of avoiding Elizabeth after his ill-fated marriage proposal, Mr. Darcy follows her back to Hertfordshire to prove to her he is a changed man and worthy of her love. And little by little, Elizabeth begins to find the man she thought she despised, irresistible....

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    No. It was a good idea to try and imagine what happens after P & P, but the language and the situations presented here are slightly unbelievable.


    Has To Conquer Mr. Darcy turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, just other books by this author


    Have you listened to any of Elizabeth Klett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, the narrators voice is well suited to my tastes.


    Did To Conquer Mr. Darcy inspire you to do anything?

    to avoid any more by this novelist

    Jane Hayes is a seemingly normal young New Yorker, but she has a secret. Her obsession with Mr. Darcy, as played by Colin Firth in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, is ruining her love life: no real man can compare. But when a wealthy relative bequeaths her a trip to an English resort catering to Austen-crazed women, Jane's fantasies of meeting the perfect Regency-era gentleman suddenly become realer than she ever could have imagined.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Austenland to be better than the print version?

    Did not read the print version, but saw the movie adaptation at Sundance.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mr. Nobley...hard to figure out his character, forced me to pay attention. This sounds dumb, but the narrators chosen voice for Mr. Nobley was lovely.


    What does Katherine Kellgren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She has a wide variety of voices, really makes you "judge" each character! Well done!


    Who was the most memorable character of Austenland and why?

    Ms. Charming...everyone knows a Ms. Charming, and everyone knows that they get what they deserve in the end!
