Publisher's Summary

A witty and cleverly crafted Pride and Prejudice variation, Absurdities and Assumptions retells the story of the courtship between Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy. 

This classic couple’s romance is shaken off course when, shortly after leaving Hertfordshire, Darcy receives word that one of the Bennet sisters is engaged to the obsequious Mr. Collins. Darcy, a rich and powerful landowner, knows Elizabeth is not a suitable match, but having already lost the battle with Cupid, he finds himself rushing back to the countryside. He is relieved to discover it is Mary Bennet who is destined to become Mrs. Collins. 

But his path to happiness is still far from assured. Darcy may have resolved his internal struggle to accept Elizabeth as she is, but he must now overcome a rival and his own inability to interpret events around him. 

Filled with hilarious misunderstandings and mishaps, Assumptions and Absurdities is sure to entertain.

Poor narration was the start ….

I have read a lot of P&P variations, it is a great way to leave the 21st century behind and live in a gentler and refined era. This story has far too many touches of our time to recommend it. The narrator spoke rapidly, so much so I had to lower the speed and she only spoke in only one voice. The men sounded like the women and vice versa. The plot was amateurish even by soap opera standards. Does this woman know her characters? Jane is guarded, Georgiana has a backbone and Charles Bingley is Mr. Darcy's rescuer and advisor? Also Colonel Richard Fitzwilliam never materializes and George Wickam's name is never mentioned Although it was great to see Ann DeBurgh get away from Lady Catherine to lead a life of her own. I was told the last ten chapters everything would come together which is why I kept listening, but the ending was just as bad. Please stay away! I will never read anything by this writer again.

a little predictable

the story was a little bit predictable, but for what I paid for it it was worth it. The narrator was great but the only problem I had was that the sound would either increase or decrease in volume randomly.

Well-written, full of humor!

Great variation. The author masterfully uses language and character interaction to bring her characters to life in this first book by a new author. I was immersed right from the beginning. The narrator is a pleasure to listen to as well.

STORY GOOD, narrator bad!

The narrator has a habit of lifting her voice at the ever now and again. This makes it feel like she is questioning every sentence and the story does not flow. Very hard to listen to!
