Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Unless I knew the person was into romantic chick flit then no. It was very mills and boon style passionate romance.
What did you like best about this story?
hearing the development of Darcy and Lizzies relationship
Which character – as performed by Corrie James – was your favourite?
I really liked her interpretation of Darcy, she made him very passionate and Manly and romantic.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
it was very erotic.
What would have made Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy: Two Shall Become One better?
A little more character development so they are less 2nd rate cardboard cut outs. They certainly don't resemble the character from the book, I can't comment on the characters as portrayed in the 2005 film as I gave that a miss.
What was most disappointing about Sharon Lathan’s story?
That if it was meant to be softcore porn (really? at least 1, and often 2 or 3 poorly written euphemistically written sex scenes per chapter?) it failed as those sex scenes were more comedic than arousing
What didn’t you like about Corrie James’s performance?
That the reader managed to slog her way through the book. She had a pleasant enough voice and it's a pity she didn't have better book to narrate.
What character would you cut from Mr. & Mrs. Fitzwilliam Darcy: Two Shall Become One?
The sex athletes, Elizabeth and Fitzwilliam Darcy, they would be better suited to move to Los Angeles and shooting porn.
Any additional comments?
The book is not based on Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice, but on Hollywood's interpretation of that book, and we all know Hollywood doesn't bother too much about sticking to the original. I enjoyed Jane Austen's book, (which surprised even me). This book however, the characters, were not the same characters as in Jane Austen's book, except in name. They were in fact not even characters as at no time did I even feel thy could be real people. Cardboard cut-outs, 2nd rate porn actors or shadow puppets yes, real people, no.The only bright spot for me was that I hadn't used my credits for a couple of months and so using one credit doesn't feel like spending real money for this. I was expecting something a little more like P.D.James "Death Comes To Pemberley" as a follow-up to Jane Austen's book, but it's not even close. However I'm sure this has an audience with Hollywood housewives who also haven't read the book.
I love this story, I've read it several times. But the woman that is reading this audio books has the most horrifying mouth sounds and turning down the volume didn't help. I had to turn it off. Seriously, if mouth sounds make you crazy, stay away from anything this narrator reads.

This is the worst book I could ever be prevailed upon to read. Boring and trite from the very beginning.
