    Would you listen to An Inconvenient Courtship again? Why?

    Yes


    Which character – as performed by Amy Soakes – was your favorite?

    A enjoyed Amy Soake's performance. My favorite were Dr. Taylor and Miss Bingley. She expressed their characters through their way of speaking very well.


    Any additional comments?

    A well written, cute short story about a faster courtship between D&E. I liked their interactions, and an addition of colonel Fitzwilliam, Georgiana and doctor Taylor. Everybody got their HEA, and I was proud of Mrs. Bennet's motherly feelings at the end. I just hope the story was a bit longer, and fleshed out a little more.

    Story
    "Delightful "What If" Novella"

    What if Lizzy was injured during her stay at Netherfield with Jane, and she was forced to stay in Darcy's presence longer? This novella explores that option with great results. As Jane and Lizzy enter the carriage to return to Longbourn, Ms. Bingley is overcome with frustration at being ignored by Darcy and strikes out with her parasol, hitting the horse. Lizzy falls and is injured badly. In the moment of distress, Darcy realizes the depth of his feelings for her, but he knows she doesn't care for him in return. While fighting to protect her and save her life, he needs to change her heart as well.

    This variation kept the characters true to canon, but enhanced some of their personality traits just a bit. It made some characters like Georgiana and Mary even more likable, and Mr. Collins even more odious. I actually enjoyed Caroline Bingley in such a small dose, and loved Mr. Bennett in such a large one. I thought the language and conversations were well done. The book doesn't rehash any of the events of the original story like the Meryton Assembly, just refers to them, so we're not slowed down by well known details.

    The narrator was great, she had the perfect accent for the story. I thought she performed the speaking voices well. It was a few hours spent in good company visiting old and well-loved friends!

    I have always been a fan of Jane Austen books in any form or rendition because of the loving heart for all characters.

    "Most Rewarding Novella"

    Love the storyline! Love how the author stayed true to the roles of the characters while adding personality twist near the ending to possibly step into a series...

    "Enjoyable story, narration needed work."

    I truly enjoyed the what-if story line. The characters stayed fairly true to Austen's intent.
    The best part was how Mr. Bennett, Mary and Miss Bingley grew from their experiences.
    Unfortunately, the choice of narrator left something to be desired. It was difficult to tell the difference between characters at times, especially the young ladies. Mr Bennett's voice was very annoying.
