Publisher's Summary

Every woman wants to be Elizabeth Bennet Darcy - beautiful, gracious, universally admired, strong, daring and outspoken - a thoroughly modern woman in crinolines.

And every woman will fall madly in love with Mr. Darcy - tall, dark and handsome, a nobleman and a heartthrob whose virility is matched only by his utter devotion to his wife.

Their passion is consuming and idyllic - essentially, they can’t keep their hands off each other - through a sweeping tale of adventure and misadventure, human folly and numerous mysteries of parentage.

Hold on to your bonnets! This sexy, epic, hilarious, poignant, and romantic sequel to Pride and Prejudice goes far beyond Jane Austen.

    "ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book is truly the sequel to Pride & Prejudice. The author does a fantastic job of fully developing all of the characters and their stories to the fullest. In true Austen fashion, she introduces new and surprising twists when you least expect them. Riveting! I didn't want it to end. The narrator does a truly wonderful job as well.


    Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Wonderful narrator! First time but not my last listening to her.

    Wife to sometimes neglected husband (due to listening to audiobooks) and mother to adult children. I am a relatively recent avid reader/listener, only really starting to read for pleasure a few years ago but now am thoroughly addicted.

    "Great use of a credit!"
    Any additional comments?

    Sometimes when I buy really long books to get the most "bang" for my credit buck I am bored with the book by the end. This one is well paced and had enough side plots to keep me interested. Also the main characters are fun and likeable. I am not an Austin devotee but I thought the author did a believeable continuation

    "bodice ripper"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    nothing....I was disappointed from the start.


    Has Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife turned you off from other books in this genre?

    indeed!


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Rosalyn Landor?

    She was unfortunate be the reader of such a novel that lacks any literary qualities..this was a waste of my $.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    one. I could easily shut it off and delete it from my library!

    Story
    "I don't understand the positive reviews."

    While there may have been a "happy ending" the rest of what occurs from Chapter 1 to Chapter 93 is mostly fluff. There were times that I laughed out loud, but that was more about the idiotic wording and crass sex education from Mrs. Wickham. There were so many subplots that were questionable. There were times that I actually shook from some of it. That is a bit much, I understand. But, I don't think that Jane Austen would have ever taken the various characters in these directions. Nor do I think that she could ever have imagined anyone changing them to the point where if it were not for the names- you would never think it was in anyway tied to P&P. My daughter would occasionally witness my reaction and would keep asking why I kept listening. I WANTED to finish it. I kept thinking that it would get better. It would get better and then the next pile of dung would be thrown out. I understand that life is hard and a book with everyone happy, wealthy and wise can be boring. You want to give the characters difficulty? Fine. But, there was so much unnecessary twists & turns that there were a good 80 or so chapters that could have been done away with. This was a WASTE of time that I will never get back.

    "Oh how my ears do bleed!! A waste of a credit!"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A totally different book by another author and a refund of my credit!


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Where They Found Her by Kimberly McCreight


    Would you be willing to try another one of Rosalyn Landor’s performances?

    I'm not really sure.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife?

    Every one of them!


    Any additional comments?

    50 Shades of Darcy, English Erotica, X Rated Regency. However you label it, it is nothing more than one woman's fantasy of a Georgian fetish.

    It was obvious within the first chapter that I was not going to enjoy this book. The writing is, indubitably, the poorest I have encountered in a long while. Every chapter includes a sexual interlude or talk of such an interlude. The characters are nothing but sexual objects with no real mannerisms to speak of. I only made it to chapter 12 of 93 (audible version). Pray that I am betwixt myself as to why you would need so many chapters as there is no real story here other than simple minded women constantly wondering about the size of their partner's male member and, oh my, however will their virgin bodies accept them!

    This book is nothing more than pages upon pages of irrelevant drivel extremely lacking of any meaningful plot!

    My advise: Don't waste your time with this book, there are a million more ways to better spend it!

    "A Surprisingly Good Book!"

    I didn't expect to like this Pride and Prejudice sequel by Linda Berdoll but I did. When I saw that it was more than 28 hours I thought that I'd probably listen for a while and then go on to something else. I was wrong. I carried my speaker and iPad around the house. I listened while I made cookies, took a bath and did my cross stitching. I couldn't stop. This was a great listen and I really think any Jane Austen lover would enjoy this book. Linda Berdoll has written more sequels. I'll look into them.

    "Awesome"

    Love the less prudish version of the relationship in the characters in Pride and Prejudice. I listen to it several times.

    "Unsure"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    While the Ever-after of Mr & Mrs Darcy is definitely intriguing, the prose of this book is rather annoying! I understand that Ms Berdoll wanted to stay true to P&P's time, but her words are way too flowery even for the period. What is with all the 'betwixt's? Austen herself had no problem using 'between'


    Would you ever listen to anything by Linda Berdoll again?

    Probably not!


    Have you listened to any of Rosalyn Landor’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes


    Did Mr. Darcy Takes a Wife inspire you to do anything?

    Go back to Pride and Prejudice

    "A perfect ending to an amazing classic"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    YES! Because it takes you on a journey that all of us have pondered, what happens after Elizabeth and Darcy Marry~!


    What did you like best about this story?

    I think it was ideal how Berdoll kept the same characters and personalities from pride and prejudice. When she did introduce the few new characters she brought them to life seamlessly within the story and made me comfortable with them.


    Which character – as performed by Rosalyn Landor – was your favorite?

    I Loved how she changed her voice from Female to Male, an EXCELLENT performance. mostly I enjoyed her as Darcy.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    I'm not good at that tag line stuff. maybe LOVE, SEX, and ADVENTURE!??


    Any additional comments?

    I appreciate how Berdoll at the end finished the story- explaining what happened with each character not leaving anyone out. the characters she purposely wrote about had an ending and made you feel like you were informed about everyone.
