    P.D. James masterfully recreates the world of Pride and Prejudice, and combines it with the excitement and suspense of a brilliantly-crafted crime story. The year is 1803, and Darcy and Elizabeth have been married for six years. There are now two handsome and healthy sons in the nursery, Elizabeth’s beloved sister, Jane, and her husband, Bingley, live nearby, and the orderly world of Pemberley seems unassailable. But all this is threatened.

    Would you listen to Death Comes to Pemberley again? Why?

    This is a fabulous book. Death comes to Pemberley picks up the Pride and Prejudice story six years after the end of that book and takes us on an new adventure with Darcy and Elizabeth. All our favorite characters make another appearance, the odious Lady Catherine de Bourgh. the insipid Mr Collins, Denny and Wickham etc. I felt like I was visiting with old friends.

    I have listened to it twice already! The language is fantastic and pays homage to the language of the period without replicating it, this makes it very easy to listen to.

    I am an Austin fan, and I think PD James has done a superb job and has captured the Austen style beautifully. I highly recommend this book, I enjoyed it from beginning to end.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I just adore the dreadful Lady Catherine and her profound yet odious comments; “I have never approved of protracted dying. It is an affectation in the aristocracy; in the lower classes it is merely an excuse for avoiding work.”


    What about Sheila Mitchell’s performance did you like?

    Sheila Mitchell's performance is brilliant. She captures the style, and characters, perfectly, and her voice is a pleasure to listen to.
