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.

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.
