Mr. Darcy: Controlling, arrogant, enraging…unfairly handsome.
Fitzwilliam Darcy had grown unused to female society during his five years of seclusion since Georgiana had her illegitimate child. That was why he accidentally insulted Mrs. Bingley’s sister. And why he kept thinking about her.
When Georgiana became pregnant with Wickham’s child, Darcy had not made her marry the man Colonel Fitzwilliam found to preserve her reputation. She had begged him not to, and Darcy would do anything for his sister. He would even attend the Hertfordshire assembly with Mr. Bingley, because Georgiana wanted him to enjoy society. Bingley’s neighbors had refused to let a fallen woman like Georgiana amongst them. Darcy would not pretend to be pleased to meet them.
Elizabeth thought Mr. Darcy was a grand philanthropist: His rudeness provided everyone with a handsome and rich man to hate. But why, if he was actively determined to sneer at all the company, had he bothered to attend their assembly? Still, he was a very handsome man.
Darcy needed to overcome his bad first impression if he wanted Elizabeth. But he was rich, handsome, and clever.
It would be easy.

Disappointing and poor narrator
I struggled to finish this one, and I LOVE a P & P variation. The premise was interesting and I enjoyed the first third, but later it started to drag and I felt the plot lost its way. Had to force myself to listen to the last 2 hours. Didn't like the narration at all. Her voice for Darcy was awful and there were lots of jarring Americanisms like "Momma and Poppa" instead of Mama and Papa, or "gotten". Poppa was the most annoying. Other words were just mispronounced. Would certainly avoid this narrator in future.

Good but not great.
It was well written and detailed. Perhaps too detailed for my taste. Elizabeth was too much of a bluestocking for my taste. To much arguing to my liking. It was not Elizabeth to me. Still good to listen to. Narrator did a great job.
