    Maidens and Matrons

    The story was very sweet, if much more long winded than necessary. I understand that the author wanted to recreate the series of misunderstandings that were the original, but every thing seemed drawn out. That being said there were some great scenes. I loved Lizzy's worries over being rude.
    My major gripe is the voices of the "matrons." Mrs Bennett, lady Catherine, and Lady Matlock. they are way too nasal and read way to fast.
    Am I glad I bought this? Yes

    Good Story, but....

    I read the book first and liked this variation when I found I could purchase the Audible version at a discount. Rarely have I been as disappointed in a purchase than I've been with this one. The narration all but ruins the story. She cannot do multiple voices well at all. Her vocal portrayal of Lord and Lady Matlock were pathetic, Lady Catherine, Mr. Bennett were poorly done as well. It will be a long time, if ever, before I listen to this again and I will never purchase another book narrated by her.

    Excellent!

    I've listened to it three times. It is so well done and satisfied all my revenge issues with the original book. Thank you! Keep writing. You have a gift. Maybe you will consider a Sense and Sensibility adventure. Please, please! xoxo

    Nice Idea, but Not Worth Purchase

    What disappointed you about The Houseguest?

    I found this on a list of books to read if you love Jane Austen novels, but was pretty disappointed. The idea behind the retelling is great, but it's poorly executed. The characters do not seem to be true to the original, and it doesn't seem to follow Jane Austen's voice at all. Mr. Darcy's narratives seem to be the worst. Overall, it seemed too silly for me to finish.

    Love a good P&P story

    Highly recommend this to anyone looking for some fanfiction. The narrator is good and the story line is well thought out.

    Wonderful book! Wonderful performance.

    This has been one of my favorite Kindle books for a long time now. The story is excellent, and I find myself going back to it again and again. It was a real treat to get to listen to The Houseguest. The Audible version is extremely well done with different voices for each character. The reading was smooth and flawless! You won’t be disappointed by this one!

    It started with promise - fell short in the end

    This variation had an excellent start and storyline. Darcy in love, Elizabeth attempting to sketch his character. It includes all the miscommunications and misunderstandings that separate them. The problem is the ending. The romance was always a spark and never a flame. Not a satisfying HEA for ODC.

    Great story, narration needs work

    Elizabeth Adams is a talented writer. I enjoy her characterizations of a dedicated Darcy with a forward ness that thrills me to my toes. The narration took away from this because she made him sound creepy and lewd. Read the book!

    Outstanding Narrator

    Great story by a favourite author, Elizabeth Adams, comes to life with Brigid Lohrey’s brilliant performance of the various characters in this book. I could not stop listening until I finished. Highly recommend.

    Excellent - couldn't stop listening

    I truly enjoyed this Pride and Prejudice variation. It sort of followed the original P&P but with some changes that were really interesting. All the original characters are present, and a couple of new ones are introduced. This takes place after the Netherfield Ball. Elizabeth meets Georgiana Darcy at Netherfield and goes to visit Georgiana in London. Elizabeth believes that Mr. Darcy will not be there for the duration of her visit, but he came on the same day that she arrived. There are many events that occur as Darcy and Elizabeth interact in London. The pace was not too fast and it gave the listener time to really enjoy the development of the relationship. The ending is most satisfying and I really loved the Epilog. It is about thirty minutes long and I found out what happened to all the major characters, which was very interesting. This is really a great listen - I highly recommend it.

    great variation on Jane Austen's Story

    Loved this Version of Pride and Prejudice. This Author took Darcy and Elizabeth Story and made it into something new without losing what makes this couple special. The writing of Elizabeth Adams together with the amazing job Brigid Lohrey does giving them life with her wonderfull voice make into something special.
