Publisher's Summary

What happens when Jane Austen's immortal characters are thrust into 21st-century Pennsylvania, with an all-male twist?

Liam Bennet has always been a good judge of character, but when William Darcy is thrown into his social circle, everything spins out of control. Darcy is proud, cold, arrogant - and strangely captivating. When Liam's brother and Darcy's business partner start seeing each other, Liam cannot avoid this enigmatic businessman. But does he want to?

As Liam struggles to find his identity in college and acknowledge his feelings, he must deal with the fortunes of his four brothers, his gossiping mother, and the possibility of a large inheritance that could save his family from financial ruin. Emotions come to a boil when George Wickham, a world-weary musician, stumbles into town and ignites a feud with Darcy. He threatens to expose a long-hidden past, and Liam must decide for himself who William Darcy really is and what he really wants.

Wonderful take on a classic

Would you listen to Pride and Modern Prejudice again? Why?

I would definitely listen to this book again. The story had such a great flow and the updates to the story were well thought out and realistic in this day and age.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the portrayal of Darcy in this story. Darcy is such an iconic character and this Darcy lives up the expectations.

What does Rusty Topsfield bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Rusty gives the characters unique tones that shows the region of the story.

Any additional comments?

Only a few times did I find that the different voices of the characters slightly overlapped when moving back and forth in a conversation. Mostly this occurred when going from a male to female character.

Worth a listen

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The story was interesting, and I enjoyed it. However, it definitely ran on too long. I found myself getting bored about 2 hours from the end. It could have used a tighter, less rambling ending.

Did Rusty Topsfield do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

The narrator did a good job performing the novel; however, he needs a lot of work on his voices. I was confused at times since some of the characters sounded very similar. Other than the voices, his narration was very good.

LOVE THIS

I have read this more than once; it's a great and cute story. It's essentially Austen's Pride and Prejudice with gay characters in a modern setting. It's also not explicit at all, which in my opinion is a nice change. Sometimes I just want to focus on a good love story, and this one has a delightfully slow burn to it.

Rusty Topsfield is wonderful. This is far from the first audio book I have obtained with him starring as narrator, and he certainly has not disappointed me with this one. In fact, this is probably my favorite of his narration thus far. His voice for Darcy is to die for.

DNF'd

I was skeptical of this when I saw the original ebook listing but it got good reviews so when given the opportunity to take a listen to the audiobook I thought I’d give it a try.

I can’t rate it because I didn’t finish it. I was just overwhelmed by the dry, stilted manner in which the story proceeds. It worked for Jane Austen – in 1813, but it didn’t work for me in modern times.

I needed a hook and I didn’t get one that convinced me to keep going.

Rusty Topsfield was a fine narrator. He tried to give voices to the different characters but didn’t do enough to make me stay with the story.

Entertaining

I enjoyed this version of a favorite story. I had fun following along what was taking place and comparing it to the original story.
