If you're a Pride and Prejudice fan then you will DEFINITELY enjoy this read from Darcy's perspective.
If only I could time travel! Since I can't seem to make that happen I guess I will have to live vicariously through books. This follow up book to Deborah Harkness's A Discovery of Witches did not disappoint me. I enjoyed meeting Matthews friends and family from the past. Both books can be read and understood as a stand alone but if you read the first book you will enjoy finding out more about Matthew's past and Diana's discoverys of her witchy abilities. If you're a fan of magic, history, adventure, suspense and romance then don't hesitate!! This book is NOTHING like that of Tolkien, Martin, or Brooks so please don't think it will be a "fantasy" read similiar to those stories.
Completely entertaining! It's hard to imagine Darcy with anybody else besides Elizabeth. This book was so much fun since it was written from Darcy's perspective. I must admit, Im completely entertained by Mr. Darcy's valet Fletcher who seems to be sharp, a true gentleman, loyal, full of advice and the incredible ability to quote Shakepeare. A fun story that shows how Darcy interacts with others in his life.
Loved the historical aspect of this story as well as the adventure and the surprise twist to the story. I think Kirsten Potter did a great job of bringing these characters to life and her accents were fun and entertaining! Joanna Bourne can sure write a love scene that seems realistic and natral without it being trashy and vulgar. The characters are a little over the top and incredible but still so amusing that you can't help but find out more. I would love for audible to present more of Joanna Bourne's work.
I enjoy a happy ending but can these two individuals with abusive pasts make their future together work? What is incredibly depressing is how high the statics really are for those that have suffered from abuse. Im sure alot more people will be able to relate to this story than they are willing to admit. The hurt, need for acceptance and struggle for security in these characters make you want to find out what happens to them.
What a wonderful story full of history, time travel, adventure, romance, and FUN!! This book was just a random purchase, I just happened upon it when I was searching audible essentials. I am SOOOO glad I decided to get it on a whimsy! Imust also say that I've picked up some Gaelic along the way and my Scottish impersonation has improved. I never knew much about Scotland or the history but since Outlander I've become more interested in their history and culture. Fascinating indeed! The characters in the story are just so realistic and you can't help but want to find out more. Rumor has it that HBO will be presenting a television series pretty soon.
If you've seen the movie than you will definitely like the book better! So full of zany and relatable situations. I think we've all had a bit of those situations. A light herated, fun and easy story.
I think most of us girls have an inner Bridget, we just don't reveal her very often. She's is just so silly and funny. How can you not like her? If you're looking for something light and entertaining then this Bridget Jones is just the thing.
Entertaining story! Loved that the heroine was strong, compassionate, aware of her flaws but decided to make lemonade out of lemons and always willing to go the distance for her loved ones. Only one true complaint, the narrator's voice for Lord Damien Knight Winterly was incredibly annoying since each word was drawn out and sounded like a stuffy, judgmental geezer!! What kind of hardened military man would sound like that? Ugh!
Never read the print version but I truly enjoyed the audiobook. Mr. Holmes did a nice job of bringing the characters to life. I must say that 'seeing" life from Darcy's perspective was interesting, heart warming, heart breaking and always amusing. When I read P&P again I found myself thinking about the way Pamela Aidan related Mr. Darcy's character in accordance to some of the events. It was also nice to be introduced to new characters such as Darcy's Shakepeare quoting valet Fletcher and Lord Di Broom, Darcy's closest friend.
Mr. Darcy of course!! Who hasn't had a crush on this guy? It was amusing to see how he simply viewed his interactions with Elizabeth as witty banter and looked forward to seeing her while she on the other hand, viewed their interactions as cumbersome.
I enjoyed all of his character portrayals but my favorite of course, was Darcy since the story is told from his perspective.
Obviously Darcy but then again, maybe Mr. Bingley since he is good natured and adored by all who meet him.
