When Fitzwilliam Darcy's arranged life falls to pieces, his father, Mr. George Darcy, gives him an ultimatum: Marry by the end of the London Season or risk disinheritance. Can Darcy cast aside society's frigid attitude toward marriage and find true love? Or will his desire to honor his deceased mother's memory hold him back?

But, the London Season has only begun....

Disappointed

The performance was terrible: English accent fake, parts of the text was clearly in error in various places and times. The story though good was weak in the end.

Did not like the voice narration.

I wish the narrator had used different voices for the characters. They were running together.

Reader was horrible.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Story was interesting. The reader killed the book

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Emma Lysy?

Someone who actually has a British accent.

Any additional comments?

I felt like I was listening to those automated voice answering prompts when he call customer service and can't get a real person no matter how many times you go through the prompts. It just keeps going and going and going until you give up and call another number hoping for a real person

Disappointed

The variation of this story left me disappointed. Don't waste your money if you are a fan of the original book.

Ruined by the narration

The narration is so odd that it is distracting from the story, completely unnatural with some very perculiar pronunciations. I suspect the narrator is not English which, in itself is not a problem, rather the over the top "British" accent she is affecting. I want to enjoy the story and would love to be able to review it properly but I'm finding it impossible.

Lovely story ruined by awful narration.

I have already read the Kindle version of this book and had no hesitation in getting the audible version. I am sorry to say that once again the narration has ruined a good story. The problem is once again the pronunciation. Hairtfordshire instead of Hertfordshire, Awnt instead of Aunt, and many more. This is not the first time audio books have been spoiled for me by incorrect pronunciation. I do hope there is a different narrator if the second book in the series is made into an audio book. Eilizabeth Klett or Pearl Hewitt would have been better narrators.

Awful narration

This book was ruined by the awful narration. The mispronunciation of so many words would have done an episode of the tv programme ‘Allo, Allo’ proud! Otherwise, a pleasant enough story.

What if Darcy’s father is still alive?

What made the experience of listening to Darcy's Ultimatum: A Pride & Prejudice Variation the most enjoyable?

A lovely sweet story, well narrated.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Darcy's Ultimatum: A Pride & Prejudice Variation?

When both Darcy AND Elizabeth were each given an ultimatum that affected their entire futures.

What about Emma Lysy’s performance did you like?

Just about all of it. I've listened to a lot of Regency era audiobooks and heard some real horrors in narration. Emma Lysy did a pretty good job in my opinion.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Darcy, marry by the end of the season or lose your inheritance!
Elizabeth, find a husband by the end of the season or marry Mr. Collins!

Any additional comments?

This is the first of a series of three books so not everything is resolved by the end. Looking forward very much to the next two. I gather from the author that the second will be coming in the not too distant future.

There's no explicit sex or even very sensual scenes in this book so I can recommend it for all audiences.

Lovely story

A nice , if predictable story. I love to listen to the P&P sequels but the narrator can make or break a good story. This story was not enhanced by the narrator. Mis pronounced words in an attempt to sound upper class rather spoilt parts of the book. It did not put me off however, and I did quite enjoy it. ( it would take a lot to put me off a good Darcy and Elizabeth romance). I’d listen to it again and try an ignore those rather annoying mispronunciations.
