Summary

In this humorous re-imagining of Jane Austen's Pride & Prejudice, Elizabeth Bennet's pet cat causes an unfortunate accident to befall the haughty Mr. Darcy, forcing the injured gentleman to reluctantly take up residence at Longbourn - more specifically, in the parlor of Longbourn!
In pain, forbidden to leave by his doctors, Mr. Darcy cannot escape the ridiculous antics of the Bennet clan. And when Georgiana Darcy, Colonel Fitzwilliam, and Lady Catherine de Bourgh arrive to visit the invalid, chaos, confusion, and hilarity ensue!
Inspired by the classics of comedy, author Jack Caldwell transforms Austen's beloved novel into a tour de force of farce. The Regency will never be the same!

Just good fun!

Would you consider the audio edition of Mr. Darcy Came to Dinner to be better than the print version?

Yes because the narrator gave such humor to the characters.

What did you like best about this story?

It brought all my favorite characters together in a cool and funny way.

What does Michaela James bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

She made it come alive for me. She has a really neat voice and is very talented with her range of crazy voices and accents.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Are you crazy ? It's 11 hours :)

Any additional comments?

I almost didn't buy it based on the reviews. Just shows there's no accounting for taste. I'm pretty sure that her pronunciations are English. Kinda ok as it is based in England. Don't take the story too seriously, either. It is a farce!!
