Description

She staggered a great man. He was reeling. She was overwhelmed. 

Fitzwilliam Darcy, standing irritably at the edge of the Meryton assembly, declines to dance with Elizabeth Bennet. In a mood of revulsion, he rejects her without concern of being overheard. Country pretensions are always in need of squashing, and what better way to make clear he would not partner anyone outside his party? However, when he looks over at her, she does not appear humbled at all. She is secretly laughing at him! 

Elizabeth is perversely delighted to encounter such an outrageous snob as Mr. Darcy. When he approaches her with a stiff, graceless apology, she coolly brushes him off, believing that, like most annoyances, he will go away when properly snubbed. But no! The man then puts out his hand, and, not wishing to create a scene, compels her to stand up with him. 

They go through the steps of the dance mutually disdainful and intent upon wounding each other. But by the time the musicians end their tune, Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy have traded barbs with such accuracy, they are unaccountably amused and engaged. Will this most inconvenient flirtation drive them apart - or, like silver buckles, are they a matched pair?

A dialogue lover’s delight

Oh, what a playful read! Such fun! Darcy and Elizabeth are delightful as they engage in a story full of delicious banter. Angst free, this book is such a pleasure to read. I hated to see it end. I adored this Elizabeth and Darcy. Highly recommend! I look forward to more from this author.

The male and female narration is excellent.

I loved this variation!!

Silver Buckles by Grace Gibson was a unique Pride and Prejudice variation that did not stray too far from the original canon. I love this Audible version with two narrations for Elizabeth’s and Mr. Darcy’s story. Telling the story from each of the characters perspective was so wonderful to know what they were thinking. Stevie Zimmerman and Neil Roy McFarlane were excellent narrators and perfect for Elizabeth’s and Mr. Darcy’s voice. If you enjoy Pride and Prejudice, you will love this variation.

Sparkling P&P Variation

A sassy session on the dance floor starts this Pride and Prejudice variation off with the kind of snappy dialogue that had this reader laughing from the first page. Silver Buckles has the reader appreciating Austen's classic in a refreshing, standout variation with just a simple tweak to each character.

This Darcy is less taciturn and is caught up in the sizzling connection from the beginning letting it see him into the assembly dance line with the very female he just insulted and who gives back as good as she gets. As a result, Elizabeth is exposed to a Darcy whose arrogance is tempered by many other facets to his character and she can view him, if not with complete approbation, at least curiosity which alters how she views the consecutive events including Wickham's serpent tongue and the advent of Mr. Collin's arrival and the Bingley departure.

At the same time, Darcy, too, is less severe on the Bennets as a whole- though yes, he wouldn't go so far as to get cozy with them- and more interested in altering his flawed behavior toward others much sooner and this leaves him stymied by duty to family or love until his sister and cousin decide to keep him from making a hash of his chance at happiness.

Both narrators were splendid choices to voice Darcy and Elizabeth's alternating narration. I've enjoyed Stevie Zimmerman several times and was well pleased with my first listen to Neil Roy McFarlane. Both gave the characters such depth and I loved the additional nuances to the story.

All around, Silver Buckles was a lighter, engaging historical romcom. There is conflict, but there is humor as well. It was an easy and entertaining listen and easily leaving me smiling over the romance pair and other moments quite often. Those who enjoy their Austen light and a good Regency Romp should definitely give this one a go.

#Favorite!!!

Jane Austen couldn’t have written better. The plot is all one could wish for, the dialogue sparkles with sharp wit and intelligence, and Mr.Darcy’s voice sounds like a man, not a woman’s version of a man, I’ve listened to this twice, and will revisit this old friend again.

Great story and narration

I loved this story because it was funny, unconventional and made me laugh. Witty banter between Darcy and Elizabeth was wonderfully written and I enjoyed the development of the characters. Different than canon solutions to Jane and other Bennet girls lives were very interesting. And of course just deserts for Wickham.

The book is written from alternating POV of Darcy and Elizabeth and it was used brilliantly in the narration. My favorite narrator Stevie Zimmerman portrayed Elizabeth as witty and lively lady and was a pleasure to listen to. Neil Roy McFarlane did an excellent job reading Darcy’s POV parts and I’m looking forward to listening to some other of his narration.

Highly recommended
