Publisher's Summary

"You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you."

When Fitzwilliam Darcy spoke these words to Elizabeth Bennet as part of his marriage proposal, they expressed his concealed feelings completely, but their meaning was at odds with the rest of his prideful and arrogant offer of marriage. It was therefore rather easy for Elizabeth to reject his offer in much the same manner. But what if Darcy, never one at ease when trying to speak of inner sentiments, had realized beforehand how his intended proposal would sound to the young woman he hoped to make his bride? What if he had attempted a much more civil and thoughtful proposal of marriage? Could Elizabeth Bennet have coldly and angrily rejected an offer made in such a manner?

A Most Civil Proposal, a variation on Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, examines and explores how the lives of the two main characters and their families and friends might have turned out differently had Darcy realized his error beforehand and thus avoided being so forcefully instructed and corrected by the love of his life.

A wonderful experience with a surprise

Many time I have read this much beloved story, but this time with all the sound effects which a reader could wish for, and made the story come much more to life and if I might suggest become Colin Odom’s trademark for audiobooks in the future.

Darcy and all the beloved characters really came to life with the sound effects which have been put into the story, and which made the story more dramatic, surprising and interesting, than ever before! 🤩 And the narration was downright brilliant! Loved every minute! Can’t wait for future projects!

Congratulations on yet another wonderful experience Colin.

unfortunate narration

I didn't finish this because the narrator was awful. I have enjoyed Odam's books in the past so I was particularly sorry that I couldn't make it through this one.

music!

The narration was acceptable, not great but O.K. it is difficult for a man to speak in a feminine sounding voice. However, what was annoying for me was they created a break between all 30+ chapters and played music that I didn't particularly like.

Best Jane Austen continuation ever

I really enjoyed this book. At first I was a little bit unsure of the sound effects. But they were very well done and of high-quality. This was like listening to a movie.

Amazing! a must read.

Couldn't turn it off. The sound effects really added to the story (sometimes I struggle as they detract but these were just the right number and level). wonderfully read. I was totally immersed.
