Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet, of course.
There were several scenes that made me hide my eyes and wish I could crawl under a rock out of embarressment for the characters--that's a good thing. I was excited to know what happened next. The best involved Wickham, Elizabeth, and Darcy--that is all I'll say.
My only complaint is that Mr. Darcy sometimes felt much too sappy for my liking. He's generally my favorite character, but there were a few instances in which I couldn't imagine Mr. Darcy being so much in love that he would act the way he would. The only reason the book didn't get a 5 star rating in all categories was this small detail.
The narrator was absolutely wonderful. She did a great job. I can not complain about how good she is in any way at all.
Sean Barrett was certainly not the problem with this audiobook. It was whoever decided to edit it that was the problem.
Meh, it's 18th Century literature. One of the first novels ever written. Much of 18th century literature is like this and not for everyone.
A clarity which I appreciate.
That's the problem. Many paragraphs are cut from this audiobook. It's rather distasteful.
I needed to read this book for my 18th Century Literature class. Because of the style its written in, the lack of standardization of English grammar back in the 1700's, and my dyslexia I thought it would be helpful to have the audio book to follow along with as I followed my book. WRONG. This audiobook cuts out so many sentences and paragraphs that I couldn't possibly get a proper reading for a college level analysis.
Do not buy this book if you want to actually say you've 'read' it. You'll miss 20% of the entire book.
