    Wife to sometimes neglected husband (due to listening to audiobooks) and mother to adult children. I am a relatively recent avid reader/listener, only really starting to read for pleasure a few years ago but now am thoroughly addicted.

    "Great use of a credit!"
    Any additional comments?

    Sometimes when I buy really long books to get the most "bang" for my credit buck I am bored with the book by the end. This one is well paced and had enough side plots to keep me interested. Also the main characters are fun and likeable. I am not an Austin devotee but I thought the author did a believeable continuation

    "What you expect."

    There are plenty of reviews summing it up as it is: a really smutty, really long story with plenty of drama and scenarios that probably would never happen. But you know what? I listened to all 40-something hours.

    Story
    "Jane Austen meets Downton Abbey"
    What did you love best about Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife?

    I liked seeing the characters I loved from P&P continue on. And it wasn't just a little bit after the wedding - we went from basically the engagement all the way to a few years after. I loved seeing them continue to grow, and see what life brought, etc.
    I thought MOST of the characters were recognizable to those of the original , MOST of the time. Especially when you remember the time period. Sometimes I wished Elizabeth was more... of a modern woman, but when you remember this was based on life 200 years ago, you forgive her a bit for not being as independent as you want her to be.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Linda Berdoll? Why or why not?

    Maybe - I need to emotionally recover from this one first. Seriously - it was emotionally tolling - like a full season of Downton Abbey in a few sittings. Lots of things happen, most of them very emotionally charging. And one thing I cannot forgive - and I kind of hate the author for writing it. A lot. I hate her a lot for writing it.


    Which character – as performed by Rosalyn Landor – was your favorite?

    Jane - she sounded just like i always imagined
    Least favorite - Darcy. I'm not sure about you, but i still imagine him as Colin Firth, and this Darcy's voice was just very... deep. Deeper than I wanted.
    Just have Colin Firth play Mr Darcy in everything. Thank you.


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

    Yes. Very. Very extreme. I smiled in appreciation, I was enthusiastically happy, I was so upset I had to stop the book, delete it and a few hours later, re download it.


    Any additional comments?

    The best way I can describe this book is that its like Jane Austen meets Downtow Abbey; a LOT happens - you're happy, you're sad, you're FURIOUS - and a lot would be solved if people just TALKED to each other.

    The beginning started out with a good amount of things happened in the bedroom; this seemed to wane by the end of the book - not that people fell out of lust/love - just less scenes took place there, which I thought was natural.

    There is one thing that absolutely drove me insane; the writing style. If the following bothers you, keep away;
    Something happens THUS/HENCE/THEREFORE this happened.
    I swear, every paragraph at least one sentence was in that format. You begin to hate the word "hence" - it was so bad that I noticed it. I mean, as a tool in your writing bag of tricks, it works. The author over abused it. TO death.

    Speaking of death - the author is also a bit of a Jane RR Martin

    In addition, I didn't appreciate what she did to some of the characters - some of them acted very out of character and it was infuriating. Seriously. I complained ad nauseam to my fiance about it. You'll see what I mean.

    Ok, I kind of need to get it off my chest - so stop reading now if you don't want spoilers.

    Seriously... look up now.



    SPOILER:

    I WILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU MS BERDOLL!

    THE REAL MR BINGELY WOULD NEVER HAVE ACTED THAT WAY, SO I WILL NEVER FORGIVE YOU !! NEVER! YOU BROKE MY HEART AND JANE'S HEART AND ALL THE HEARTS FOR NO FRACKING REASON!

    Although, I wanted to high five Jane for the way you she told Bingely she found out. Very nice. I may be slightly vindictive - but i was also very upset on her behalf and on behalf of all P&P fans everywhere.

    AND WHY KILL OFF MR. BENNETT? I *LOVED* HIM. I almost cried at my desk! It's not like the actor had a better offer and wanted to do something else, so you had to kill him off in the show! i still don't see the reasoning behind this!

    "Decent book,,,"

    I liked this story it was ok. I think that it was filled with way to many events. I felt like saying give them a break ready. Also I wasn't a big fan of the story teller, an old woman. I think if they had used someone younger clouded to Elizabeth's age it would have been much more captivating.

    "A great sexy love story"

    I enjoyed the book from beginning to end. The narration and the story were great. I fell in love with the relationship of Lizzy and Darcy even more.

    "50 Shades of Pemberly"

    I wasn't sure if I was going to like this sequel to Pride and Prejudice, but I enjoyed it immensely! Very well written and performed. I can actually imagine myself listening to this book several more times. The visuals were wonderful to imagine. I look forward to going back to Pemberly soon!
