    Story
    (668)

    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.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Nothing but a re-write!


    What was most disappointing about P. D. James’s story?

    Half of the story was just a recap of events from Pride and Prejudice--who would have read Death Comes to Pemberly if they weren't already intimately familiar with P&P? Honestly! And P.D. James--shame on you!


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

    No--but the performance was good despite the story.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Death Comes to Pemberley?

    Every minute spent in reference to P&P.


    Any additional comments?

    What a waste of money and time. Very disappointing. Oh, and the murder story was lame, too.
