    As Darcy spends more time at Netherfield supervising Bingley and fending off Miss Bingley's persistent advances, his unwilling attraction to Elizabeth grows, as does his concern about her relationship with his nemesis, George Wickham.

    Douglas says: "The Spirit of Austen Enchanted"
    "Wonderful book; breath-challenged narrator"
    Overall

    As I began to listen to this book, I was VERY distracted by the narrator -- I swear he breathes every 4-5 words. Either he has COPD or some other chronic respiratory issue, or a VERY affected reading style.

    After about an hour, though, as another reviewer noted, I was so caught up in the story, that I stopped noticing the narrator.

    But....every time I resume listening, I have to get used to it all over again.

  • Blott on the Landscape

    Story

    When philandering Sir Giles Lynchwood decides it's time to wriggle free of his monumentally unattractive wife, Lady Maud, he knows divorce is out of the question. He can't leave her and keep her cash; a reversionary clause on her ancestral home, Handyman Hall, has taken care of that. Lady Maud, for her own special reasons, is also dying to see the back of Sir Giles.

    Linda says: "Sharpe at his best..."
    "Riotously funny!"
    Overall

    Sharpe has given us a hysterically funny romp through British politics and marital problems among the country gentry. I chortled the whole way through. Be advised: there are mature themes (sexuality, in particular), and the liberal dropping of the F-bomb by one character in particular.

    I must say that David Suchet truly brought all the eccentric, stereotypic British "country house set" characters to life brilliantly. I've been looking at the other Sharpe books, but none of them are narrated by Suchet, so I can't decide if I want to get them, as well.
