Summary

Elizabeth Bennet does not know what to think of Fitzwilliam Darcy. Having heard her new brother, Charles Bingley praise him to the skies, invited to accompany her brother and beloved, Jane, to stay at the man's estate, Elizabeth wonders how he can possibly be as good as Charles claims.

At Pemberley, Elizabeth learns that Mr. Darcy is a diligent man, one sober and upright, a man engaged in the welfare of his estate. His sister, Elizabeth also learns, is a wonderful girl, a girl unlike her own sisters, who are often wild and uncouth.

Settling in at Pemberley for a visit, Elizabeth grows to love the estate, and her esteem for the master and his sister grow apace. But while Elizabeth is happy there, she cannot forget the events of the past year, which continue to plague her peace of mind.

Then an old enemy of the Darcy family arrives to wreak havoc on the Darcys, pulling Elizabeth's own family into his schemes. The question, in Elizabeth's mind, is whether Mr. Darcy's newfound appreciation for her can withstand the machinations of a libertine and the silliness of a reprehensible sister.

liked the story

I liked the story, in spite of the staticky sounds at the end of many words. I increased the speed of the narration and that helped.

Irritating Narrator

I could hardly make it through this book because of the narrator. She is slow in speaking and makes weird and irritating noises when she talks. I've had to turn in books narrated by her before because I couldn't make it through. This one is no exception.

Great Jaff

I really enjoyed the story. Only thing I can say is negative is that the narrator has a funny way of pronouncing father. It sounds like fodder and it is annoying. And lady Catherine is pronounced oddly. Other than that it is great read.
