    Story
    "Or Pemberly by the sea the old title"
    If you could sum up The Man Who Loved Pride and Prejudice in three words, what would they be?

    A good romance


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cassie and Calder of course


    What about Gillian Vance’s performance did you like?

    I've listened to several readers, I would I like a more masculine voice for Calder, but the storie was well told, so I'm happy with it


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

    I've read this book before, under another title a few years back, loved it then, still do, the emotions are more sutle in this kind of books, more under the skin than tossed around but it's worth getting into this world and exploring it.


    Any additional comments?

    I love Abigail Reynolds books, there not thrillers but the pace is slow and you learn about the characters as go along, if you like a slow but steady romance with a few Austen twists, this is the book for you

    Story
    "Clueless"

    This is another book where we are supposed to believe that the two main characters are well educated and intelligent,yet they are oblivious to the signals they spend most of the book sending to each other. How can they continue to misread each other so terribly? And even worse, for two successful communicators - after all she is a teacher and he is a writer, why can't they communicate with each other.

    Nevertheless, I liked quite a bit about the book. The insertion of a novel within a novel was a great way to move the plot along and the author did a very good job of using the locations and surroundings to assist the reader in understanding the characters. I also thought the narrator did a good job.

    There were a couple of times when the segue from one scene to the next was so abrupt I kept replaying the last 30 seconds. I actually though it was a flaw in the recording.

    This was an inventive take on a classic that is in danger of being so overused it is in danger of being trivialized. I can't give it a complete thumbs up but it was worth reading.
