A classic Jane Austen with all the wit, humour and intelligence you would expect from her, made even more enjoyable by Juliet Stevenson's entertaining and excellent narration. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this audio book once again.
"Lovely story read beautifully"
I am a real Austen fan, this book in my opinion is read beautifully, as a Brit I find readers who pronounce UK place names wrongly to be very irritating, none of this here. I know the story so well but listening to it again is always a great pleasure
This is another masterpiece from Jane Austen, with wonderful depths to the stories of her characters. Although it's somewhat mournful throughout, it's definitely a must-read.
Juliet Stevenson did a fabulous job as always, such quality to her reading. But I have to say that after listening to the whole, rather negative story for much of the time, I just had to watch the Emma Thompson/Kate Winslet etc film, whose performances were just stunning.
"The best narrator"
The story is undoubtedly lovely, moreover, Juliet Stevenson's performance is just superb!
I tried several different narrator for "Sense and sensibility" and she is the best.
She created the tone, speed and characteristics for each character so that I could almost see each faces.
"a piece of art!!!!great narrator!!!"
This is a book for those who want to learn english and hear to a remarkable english accent of juliet Stevenson.
"Transported away into another time"
Juliet Stevenson's reading of this classic allows you to be transported away to another time & revel in the sheer delight of her voice, intonation & diction which takes Ms Austen's classic to a new level of enjoyment. Though familiar with the book, I thought I would listen to it again in favour of re-reading the book prior to the next book club - sheer joy A must download for every Audible library!
"All the better for the reader"
Thoroughly enjoyed this audio book. Juliet Stevenson was the perfect person to listen to.
Can't believe I have never read this classic, but so glad I waited to listen to it, superbly narrated by Juliet Stevenson. I am now looking for other books read by her. Thoroughly recommend.
"a great classic"
still good, a great book and well read with good characterisation from the narrator would recommend
I really enjoyed this narration. I love the story and Juliet Stevenson was excellent as I expected. I enjoyed the different voices and the narrator was very good at making the most of the humorous sections and the sad parts. In particular, the rendition of Col. Brandon's story of love lost was deeply moving.
