Audio Review: Darcy's Awakening - Georgina Young-Ellis

When Darcy and Lizzy meet at the Meryton assembly, Darcy is already engaged to another woman, and Lizzy has suffered the loss of someone she once loved. How will they find their way to each other, with these obstacles, and so many more, standing in their way?

My thoughts:
Oh you know me, I love my variations, I love them in any shape and form.

In this one Darcy is engaged (in secret) to Miss Bingley. OMG, Darcy really! But it does make sense, she is his bff's sis. She has money of her own. She is accomplished blah blah blah. Darcy really.

But the rest goes as before. They meet. He does fancy her, but alas, he is engaged to Miss Bingley and he is a gentleman. And Lizzy if of course taken by Wickham.

This is the first book where I wanted Lizzy to end up with the colonel. He was so sweet and he cared for her and I was all awwwwww- Of course at the end I liked that she ended up with Darcy, I mean obviously! But still, maybe Lizzy should end up with Colonel Fitzwilliam one time and then he dies in the war and then first she finds Darcy. There...write it please ;)

But so yes there will be setbacks, and I did know he and Miss Bingley would part ways, obviously, I just did not know how it could happen since he is such a gentleman. But as always everything works out for the best.

She did a good job, she had this...lol dunno proper way of speaking everyone's voices that I enjoyed. Variations are really pleasant listening too. I go around with an amused look, a faked shocked look, well you name it.

  2. I do like this different take on Pride and Prejudice and I have to agree with you, authors do need to mix it up once in a while! Great review!

  3. I'm okay with Austen reads and retellings but I'm not a huge fanatic like some. Thanks for the review

  4. I'm not at all familiar with Darcy. I've heard of him, but I've never read Jane Austen. I know it is shocking. Great review.

  7. I love when a narrator offers variations in the voices, it adds an extra layer to the story.

  11. For these types of books, the narrator has to be really good to give the best immersive experience! "Proper", as you put it. Glad to hear Ms. Maisberger did a good job.
