Publisher's Summary

A tempestuous acquaintance and disastrous marriage proposal makes it unlikely Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth Bennet will ever reconcile. Despairing of their own reunion, they attend with great energy to salvaging that of Darcy’s friend Mr. Bingley and Elizabeth’s sister Jane. People are rarely so easily maneuvered in and out of love, however, they follow a series of misunderstandings, both willful and unwitting, that complicates all four star-crossed lovers’ alliances more than ever before.

A witty and romantic novel that delights in the folly of human nature and also honors Austen’s original Pride and Prejudice and holds appeal for listeners of all genres.

A great audio book

Wow. The narrator was perfect. No silly voices that annoy you. The storyline was different as Jane was horrible to Lizzy because of jealousy. It made for a great book. I always wanted a story with a bad Jane and this was great. Not to worry Jane returns to herself after she realizes it’s her fault and not Lizzy’s. Darcy is a strong caring husband with a wicked sense of humor that Elizabeth appreciates.

Clever and funny, but not what I was looking for.

First, I must commend Mr. Artur Rowan's incredible voice and commitment. His pitch-perfect delivery is what kept me listening as long as I did. I will for certain be looking into other books narrated by him. I hope he goes far with audio narration.

As for the book, although its a funny and cleverly written Pride and Prejudice variation, Mistaken was just not for me. In my opinion, an Austen variation works best when the characters still maintain their core personality and values, despite what new situations they get thrown into. When Mistaken holds to this it's utterly delightful and very well done. It falters when the characters make choices or react in ways that feel inherently dishonest to their well-know and well-loved natures. Mistaken also flirts with the idea of the things left unsaid by Austen's characters. Sometimes this was clever and just a touch naughty, but all too frequently it was just this side of raunchy. Not even Mr. Arthur Rowan's superb narration could save this uneven-toned variation for me.
