Publisher's Summary

Dark curls and an unforgettably sweet laugh were all he knew of his sister's rescuer. Later, a second glimpse showed her to be lovely, and he heard her melodious laugh again. Darcy wondered what it would be like to meet this remarkable, and remarkably lovely, young woman. Would the spirit that caused her to go to the aid of a stranger be able to bring some joy to his lonely life? Would they ever meet, or would he always be left wondering?

Little did Fitzwilliam Darcy know that his trip to Hertfordshire to help his friend would bring him face to face with the lovely young woman whose unforgettable laugh had haunted his dreams for the last several years. Would she be anything like the woman he had built up in his dreams? Would he be able to avoid Miss Bingley long enough to discover more about this mysterious young woman?

Forgettable

Caroline is very nasty in this version and Wickham is very stupid. I like the fact that darcy is not as arrogant. The narrator was Ok. several times voices were mixed up. I am sure it will get better as the narrator works through the series. This version was a lot different from the last one I listened to. I hate cliffhangers and that was included in this version. I got this ARC via audiobook boom.

Very interesting For a Pride and Prejudice fan

What did you like best about Her Unforgettable Laugh: A Pride and Prejudice Variation? What did you like least?

I love Pride and Prejudice so, I did really enjoy this book. I have listened to many variations of the story and it was a much more detailed version. I always saw Elizabeth as a bit of a rebellious woman, but this book doesn't really give that impression as I do so enjoy.

What did you like best about this story?

I know that Caroline is supposed to be a sh*t but this much felt a bit heavy. Books need to have an antagonist but I am not sure this extreme would have been to Ms. Austen's approval.

Which character – as performed by Nancy Peterson – was your favorite?

I would have to say Georgiana was my favorite. I think she really got the sweet and shy young lady. I also loved Darcy's pet name for her.

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

I sure wood. I am very excited to see where it goes in book 2.

A Different Take on Pride and Prejudice..

Any additional comments?


This is an alternate take of the Famous Couple from Pride and Prejudice.

I don't want to list any spoilers.

Overall, an entertaining read that I enjoyed and I am interested in the rest of the series.


Nancy Peterson did really well with the narration.

Good one

This was a good one in Pride and Predjudice. It is long, very emotion grabbing, nice dialogue, very era appropriate.
Then again all these are the faults as well. This was so long that it was at times repetitive, forgot it earlier plot (Collins suddenly just dissappeared despite his plans), it grabbed my emotions so much that I grew frustrated at times, the narrator while very good at presenting different characters sometime confused them. It was not fun listening to Lizzy speak and sound like Caroline. Lastly it was at times hard to swallow how ineffective Darcy was just because keeping up reputations. Wickham was laughably easy to get one over him time and time and time x7 again.

Loved it....

Good story, good narrator....Even though it is only the first part of 3, it didn't leave off with a huge cliffhanger, but instead ended at a good turning point. Can't wait for parts 2 and 3!

Her Unforgettable Laugh

“This audiobook was given by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Boom.”

"Her Unforgettable Laugh: A Pride and Prejudice Variation: Her Unforgettable Laugh Series, Book 1" by Linda Thompson is a lovely, well written piece. I love revisiting

characters and places from a slightly different angle. We have our antagonists Mr. Wickham and Miss Bingley, who are overtly scheming for their own purposes. Our

protagonists Mr. Darcy and Miss Elizabeth Bennett have to avoid the machinations of the antagonists, while they try to get to know each other.

As this ends in a cliffhanger I will seek out the next novel in the series.


The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. Nancy Peterson gives a believable performance, that takes you back to days long gone. Her voice and

dialect are quite pleasing.

Fun and enjoyable variation

This is a variation of Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice. There was little to no character introductions, and not a whole lot of character building, I felt that the author assumed the reader already knew the characters and the basic story. As I've read Pride and Prejudice, I had no problems keeping up with the story or figuring out what was going on. I feel someone just jumping in might get bogged down figuring everything out. I quite enjoyed revisiting the world of Pride and Prejudice. I especially liked how much more interesting Darcy's character was, because let's face it, Jane Austen's male characters tended to be dry and rather boring. I was pleasantly surprised to discover this is the first in a series. I look forward to reading the other books. Nancy Peterson's narration as usual is excellent, and was spot on for this.

OK

This is a 3 star book for me because of the story line and the characters that just weren't well developed. I kept waiting for more, but was disappointed. This is the first book that I've listened to by Linda Thompson and I will give another book by her a try. Nancy Peterson did a really good job with the narration.

Great Story and Narration

I didn't start out liking this story. It was a bit slow and I didn't connect with the characters. As I continued listening I began to enjoy it, The conclusion was excellent for a series. It was a good variation. I have Book 2 on my wish list.

Very Very Good Story

I dearly enjoyed “Her Unforgettable Laugh" Book 1 of 3. It was to me a lovely Variation of the Pride and Prejudice Book. I listened with the Audible Version; and that is also very good. I’m looking forward to Book 2 and 3.

Not great literature, but enjoyable

If you're a JA purist, you won't like this. However, if, like me, you enjoy the many variations and 'what ifs' her stories have generated, this one is an enjoyable way to pass a few hours. It's the first of a trilogy and is, in my opinion, the best of the three. Book 2 isn't bad, although Lizzy cries a bit too much for my view of her character, but book 3 wraps up the main story by chapter 7 and then keeps going until chapter 30!

Nancy Peterson's narration is average - I certainly wouldn't seek out other audiobooks on the strength of it, but I wouldn't avoid them, either.
