I got this book via audiobook boom. The little boy is the main character to me in this story. I have read many adaptations of Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth and by far this is one of the better ones. Elizabeth's son ahs a vivid imagination and uses it to get his mother and Mr. Darcy together. This one starts out very different from the other adaptations and also from the original story. But it is a good listen and the narration moved the story along.
I found this P&P variation highly entertaining. It's very different but ties back to the original story very well. Elizabeth is previously married/widowed and has a son when she meets Darcy. As expected Darcy becomes enamored with Elizabeth and as usual it takes some time for them to actually to hook up but the conditions that get them together is very different. The differences in the other major characters are also entertaining and unexpected. The only part that had me less interested was Darcy's son. I think he took up too much of the story at the end. Nevertheless, this version of P&P is worth the time. Peal Hewitt does a great job with the narration. I must tell you that I received a free copy of this audiobook for an honest review.
I enjoyed the Knight's Quest series. Having already read the series in ebook, I experienced the characters coming alive through the various voices of the narrator. Ben 's joy and delightful imagination reverberates through the stories.
listening to the reaction of the various characters to Ben brought out their true natures. Allowing Lizzie and Jane to disagree, having Mr. Darcy decide between his needs and propriety, showing how ensnaring a man was easy but cruel were just some of the delightful plot twists.
