It was interesting to see how the author modernised each character and situation/plot line. Most 'changes' were done well but I thought the Lydia plot line was just an excuse to bring in a topic that is current but just felt clumsy and unnecessary with so much else going on- the Wickam character became two people and I felt Lydia's Wickam was only done for shock value. Other than that is was quite clever. Would see this book as a holiday or beach read/listen type of book. Did find American accent annoying to listen to first as I tended to listen to it at night but I got used to the vocal quality pretty quickly. Recommend for easy listen and nothing too intense. If you are an Austen purist you won't like this a bit but as a general Austen fan or not it is worth a listen.

After a. Couple of years listening to two or three books a week, this one is by far the most enjoyable ever. You don't need to know Jane Austin, but if you do it makes it funnier, more current and clever. Brilliant, considering re-reading straight away.
