    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

    "Awful"
    What would have made Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife better?

    It should have been more faithful to the original


    What was most disappointing about Linda Berdoll’s story?

    The characters were WAY out or CHARACTER!


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was ok.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife?

    I only got to chapter 10. It grated on my nerves.


    Any additional comments?

    Just pretty bad. Too much sexual content where there should have been more about the emotional relationship between the two.

    Story
    "Great follow-on to a classic..."

    This is a bit "warmer" version of the Jane Austen classic, but no less compelling. I like how it wraps up the lives of the original characters. It's got all the angst, misunderstandings, charm and wit of a period romance, as well as action and adventure. The story of Lizzie and Darcy's relationship is perfect.... very well done. I had a hard time putting it down, even when I'd listened to it a second time almost a year later.

    I also loved the language in it. I found myself looking up words that you just don't see in modern day romances - I thought it was very much in keeping with that of upper class society at that time. Nothing vulgar at all, but it was interesting to see the choice of words the author used to describe some of the sexier scenes. Linda Berdoll did an outstanding job!

    Great narration by Rosalyn Landor - I have listened to her before, and thought she was very good, but this was by far her best.

    Well worth the time and the credit - I highly recommend it.

    "bodice ripper"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    nothing....I was disappointed from the start.


    Has Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife turned you off from other books in this genre?

    indeed!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Rosalyn Landor?

    She was unfortunate be the reader of such a novel that lacks any literary qualities..this was a waste of my $.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    one. I could easily shut it off and delete it from my library!

    Story
    "I don't understand the positive reviews."

    While there may have been a "happy ending" the rest of what occurs from Chapter 1 to Chapter 93 is mostly fluff. There were times that I laughed out loud, but that was more about the idiotic wording and crass sex education from Mrs. Wickham. There were so many subplots that were questionable. There were times that I actually shook from some of it. That is a bit much, I understand. But, I don't think that Jane Austen would have ever taken the various characters in these directions. Nor do I think that she could ever have imagined anyone changing them to the point where if it were not for the names- you would never think it was in anyway tied to P&P. My daughter would occasionally witness my reaction and would keep asking why I kept listening. I WANTED to finish it. I kept thinking that it would get better. It would get better and then the next pile of dung would be thrown out. I understand that life is hard and a book with everyone happy, wealthy and wise can be boring. You want to give the characters difficulty? Fine. But, there was so much unnecessary twists & turns that there were a good 80 or so chapters that could have been done away with. This was a WASTE of time that I will never get back.
