    "Love Abigail's P&P Stories"
    Would you listen to A Pemberley Medley again? Why?

    Yes, as I have read all these stories over the years many times and always enjoy my favorite literary couple's re-imaginings.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Can't have Darcy without Elizabeth. All ladies want to BE Elizabeth and want to WIN THE LOVE AND DEVOTION of Darcy. All other characters are minor. They are Lizzy and Darcy's stories.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Elizabeth Klett’s performances?

    If I had the choice of listening to the same story by Ms. Klett or another narrator, I would probably choose the other narrator. I found Ms. Klett's slight lisp, especially on the word "Elizabeth", which is everywhere in the story, annoying to say the least. It became more and more difficult to hear - like fingernails on a chalkboard. Seeing as it's also the narrator's own name, I found it even more annoying. It was a subtle lisp, but when the word occurs hundreds of times in a story it drives me crazy.Perhaps it is something about an English accent and the word Elizabeth since another of Ms. Reynold's stories, with a different narrator, also seemed to have a lisp as well. Maybe it's my ears, but I am quite used to listening to actresses with an English accent and don't hear this type of subtle lisp in them. Maybe it's the recording equipment.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I always enjoy Abigail's variations on P&P. She has a great knack with writing humor (wit).


    Any additional comments?

    The wonderful stories overrides the slight qualms I had with the narrator, so overall I would not discourage others to listen to this audiobook. Perhaps I am too picky.

    "Another winner..."

    Short Darcy and Elizabeth stories, all wonderful. Stories all written in true Abigail Reynolds' style, if which I am a big fan! Narrator does a really nice job. Great for when you need a quick Darcy and Elizabeth fix and don't have time to get in a full length story

    "Story lacks drama and imagination"

    At first glance, it sounds like a good and fun idea to write alternative endings of the beloved novel. Some of the passages are good and imaginative, but the overall stories lack drama and original thoughts. The language and dialouge - especially between Elisabeth and Darcy - are too modern and direct. Where Jane Austen's characters convey meaning in downplayed dialouge, in this book they just say things plain out right. And some of the language and actions (like kissing) are way too explicit for the time/original novel. If one wants to fantasize about the couple in 'hot emrabces' and talking almost openly about sex, then it is the book for you.

    SPOILER ALERT
    However, if you would enjoy some truly alternative endings with different plot lines, you will be disapointed (like me). Why must Elisabeth and Darcy get each other in every variation of the story? It would have been so much more interesting to read/hear about them not getting married in the end! Why not let Elisabeth marry colonel Fitzwilliam and Darcy be forced to take his cousin (like his aunt wants). Or - what if mr Wickham's bad character is not found out before Elisabeth marries him (maybe she could inherit some money to make him really go after her)! Or Darcy could marry miss Bingley and Elisabeth remain a spinster. The possibilities are endless, why not utilise them!
