Publisher's Summary

A misunderstanding to last a lifetime. 

When Elizabeth Bennet first meets Fitzwilliam Darcy, she is not feeling quite herself. Miserable and in an unsociable temper, she decides to attend the Meryton Assembly against her better judgment to support her beloved sister.

Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy, confident in the rightness of his own observations, unknowingly misjudges the condition of Miss Elizabeth Bennet’s health. What begins as complete disinterest soon develops into pity when an unknown surgeon offers a bleaker outlook for the young woman’s future. He will see that her last days are worth living. Annoyed by her father’s apparent lack of concern and wishing to do something himself, he commits himself to be her champion...irrevocably.

Elizabeth Bennet is confused. Except for her father and arrogant Mr. Darcy, everyone in her acquaintance either avoids her or bursts into tears when in her company. What tragedy are they withholding from her? She is baffled by Mr. Darcy’s insistence and assumes improper motives. When the truth comes out, will she see him differently? And will he discover his feelings are more than just pity on a dying woman?

This delightful regency tale filled with beloved characters from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice reveals what remains when layers of pity, confusion, and miscommunication are peeled away from literature’s most stubborn couple - a happily ever after for the ages. 

Indisposed is a sweet, clean regency novella of approximately 20,000 words.

Lizzy Bennet False Consumption

The story was pretty good.But the
thing that took away from it ,was not
having a British Narrator, When your
dealing with a story set in Britain ,it
requires a British author,
Elizabeth is thought to have Consumption, Does she ,have it or just a bad cold?Darcy wants to spend what ever
time she has left ,If that's the case,He
is willing to marry her even if the marriage is short ,

short and sweet

This story is about Elizabeth being ill, and how she was misdiagnosed. Confusion, as to why everyone was treating her differently. Mr. Darcy decided to take care of her. There's Miscommunication, confusion, and humor in this story.

Short and Sweet

In this Pride and Prejudice variation, a dreadful cold changes the fate of our favorite couple. Lizzy comes down with a cold the day of the Meryton Assembly and it only worsens after she visits Jane at Netherfield Park. A new surgeon gives Darcy and the Bingleys dreadful news and Darcy is determined to make Elizabeth's last days wonderful ones.

This was a short and sweet novella, a clean listen. I couldn't put it down and listened to it all in one sitting. I loved this Darcy, a man determined to make Elizabeth happy, not to get anything in return from her. Poor Lizzy's confusion was quite funny and I smiled throughout the whole audiobook.

The narration was well done and kept me immersed in the story. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

Pride and Prejudice with a twist.

A slight variation on Pride and Prejudice. Overall the story was enjoyable but it’s hard to mess with the perfection that is Jane Austen. That being said, it was an interesting twist, the narrator did a great job and it brought a smile to my face. I can’t argue with that.

Sweet, clean P&P variation

This is a quick reading Pride and Prejudice variation novella. I listened to the audio book which a think was maybe 2 hours. The story is nice and sweet. Also clean and mostly in keeping with the original characters. But because it is so short there is not a lot of time to go into depth. Most of the book is spent in the indisposed part of the book where Lizzy is ill and Darcy is going beyond duty to take care of her. He has time to fall in love with her as he gets to know her through his service. Unfortunately, there isn't much time for Lizzy to fall for him. For most of the book she is more confused than anything, asking herself why he is being so nice to her and why is everyone treating her so weirdly. So from Lizzy's pov the falling in love is really short. The whole course of the book is only a couple weeks I think? Not long anyway. So looking at the time frame it is a short time for both of them to fall in love. But for her it is even shorter. It is a pleasant story. Not a lot of conflict and an easy read or listen. Nice if you have just a couple hours for a book.

The narrator did a nice job.

No sex, language or violence
*I received a complimentary copy of the audio book and voluntarily chose to review it.

Enjoyable rendition of Pride and prejudice

I enjoyed this novella spin on Pride and Prejudice. I liked that it was easy to follow, not riddled with the old English language. I am not a fan of the narrator. She does a decent job at distinguishing the different characters but her voice is not enjoyable to me.

Weird story

I have read many variations to pride and prejudice, but this story was far fetched and weird.
I know the title is ‘indisposed’ but the amount of illness that befalls the characters was almost comical. First Mr Darcy and Elizabeth do not feel well at the Meriton assembly, then Elizabeth falls ill when visiting Mr Bingley, then Mr Colins hurts Elizabeth’s legs, then the whole lot get food poisoning. Even in the epilogue you are introduced to children who are not well.

The narrator sounds a though she has a lisp which impacted on the listening experience.
