Customer Review

Format: Audio CD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product( What's this? )
Mr D'Arcy and Elizabeth Bennett end up married and living in D'Arcy's palatial palace, Pemberley (am I the only one who always thinks of Chatsworth whenever I hear the name Pemberley? Damn you TV!!). P.D. James has imagined Pemberley very much post-Austen and how murder affected the house and its occupants.

Always hard to carry on someone else's story and characters, but I think PD makes a pretty good job of it. However, I just kept thinking to myself that this should not be: Rather like spilling some of your favourite curry, that you just KNOW is not going to come out, down the front of a favourite shirt. You like them both, but just not in close contact!

If you can leave Jane Austen behind and just take this as a murder mystery on its own merits, then it's damn good - and Sheila Mitchell's reading of it is excellent. I'm afraid I stupidly kept being distracted by thinking more about the veracity of the Austen recreations (which are good!) than the actual plot, so I'll probably have to listen to it again to get all the plot points. Beware though, it's almost 8 hours long, so set aside a good while to listen to it.
