Publisher's Summary

Picking up 20 years after Pride and Prejudice left off, Mr. Darcy's Daughters begins in the year 1818. Elizabeth and Darcy have gone to Constantinople, giving us an opportunity to get to know their five daughters, who have left the sheltered surroundings of Pemberley for a few months in London. While the eldest, Letitia, frets and the youngest, Alethea, practices her music, twins Georgina and Belle flirt and frolic their way through parties and balls and Camilla - levelheaded and independent - discovers what joys and sorrows the city has to offer an intelligent young woman.

Listeners will delight in the return of such beloved Austen creations as Elizabeth's old nemesis Caroline Bingley (now Lady Warren), the ever-reliable Gardiners, and wayward Aunt Lydia. Charming, beautifully written, and full of societal intrigue and romantic high jinks, Mr. Darcy's Daughters is a tale that would please Austen herself.

    "The trouble with teenaged girls"

    The hair raising exploits of Fitzwilliam and Elizabeth's teenaged daughters in London free of their parents' care make for great fun and lots of fodder for gossips. We meet older versions of Caroline Bingley and Lydia Bennet who add to the fun.

    Story
    "Bring back Phyllida Nash"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator made the voices of various adults in the book sound as if they were very young children. She is also unable to pronounce a number of word properly, such as ogle and chaise longue.


    Any additional comments?

    At the end of the audio book there is a free chapter of the next book in the series and the narrator ends the whole book by encouraging the listener to download this second book. But it is not available from Audible at the moment...
    It would have been preferable if Phyllida Nash had narrated the whole series!

    "Perfect Elizabeth Aston Novel"

    I had already read the book form of this Audible, so I was looking forward to having the book read out to me. I was disappointed with the narration. All the female were at best different from one another, but not that well that I could tell which character was speaking and all the male characters were exactly the same. For those that have listened to the first 3 novels read by Phyllida Nash will probably likewise disappointed. The story line is excellent However, I hope Audible will put the story about Miss Alethea Darcy in their repertoire, even if it is the same narrator I shall download it because it was a very good read.

    Story
    "Mostly enjoyable"

    An enjoyable Regency romance centred around the London season of Elizabeth's Darcy's daughters - all five of them - slightly marred by the reading. Morag Sims has a pleasant voice but some of her attempts at the voices of male characters are rather odd, especially Mr Roper, unless he permanently wears his stock tied too tightly. More disconcertingly, she mispronounces various words, including the name Alethea, and I was reduced to shouting "rowt!" every time the characters discussed a proposed rout party. For someone who seems to specialise in reading historical novels this lack of familiarity with the period really won't do. And if "ogle" was pronounced "oggle", as seems to have become current, it would have been spelt that way! Grrr!

    It seems odd to me that the rational and well-read Darcys should produce two offspring as silly as Lydia and Kitty Bennet, but since Aston is playing with the parallels between her Darcy daughters and the Bennets, I suppose it's allowable. I'm more sorry for what Aston has done to Mrs Gardiner, who seemed very pleasant and capable in Pride and Prejudice but seems here to have lost many of the qualities which made Elizabeth and Jane so fond of her. The heroine, Camilla, is a worthy successor to her mother, though.

    Despite my reservations, I shall probably "read" the rest of the series - I think my blood pressure will stand it!
