Yes. The narrator made a good story better.
She sounded as if she were having fun reading it, as if she wanted the listener to share in the fun.
for Austen lovers
it's pretty unique
the film was good too - the book's still way better though
I've listened to this book several times…that's how good it is
I like to read VERY much .. I'm obsessed with reading I don't have time to actually read a book so I've been a listener for three years now
Back to Darcy
Well, I think Jane was my favorite since I didn't get to know other characters that well
I have to say it's Mrs.charming .. she was so funny
the last scene of the story was good how the love triangle finally got resolved
In comparison with the movie I found that the movie was much more entertaining but the story is cute and different .. it's like seeing two versions of the same story
I don't know.
The Johnstown Flood
The reading was saccharine.
I couldn't get that far into it to tell you.
Can I get credit for another book? You can have this one back.
I saw and so enjoyed Austenland, the movie, but found the audio book rather boring.
I love Jane Austen and thought this was would be a good "fluff" book but I found it to be too dumb to be enjoyable. The whole Austenworld scenario seemed so unbelievable that it could not hold my attention, even as a funny/silly story.
The reader took the story WAY too seriously and read with earnest passion, instead of recognizing the irony. It made it hard to listen to.
I read this book years ago and was an immediate fan. Listening to the book made the characters come alive.
I totally enjoyed the entire book.
Katherine Kellgren is a first class narrator. I have loved everything she has read.
I am an avid P&P fan, but just could not care less for this book. I did not connect with any of the characters and frankly didnt care what happened because of it. Blah - do not waste a precious credit or money on this one!
I am an elementary teacher. I love to cycle, swim and walk my dog. I enjoy quilting when I can sit still. I'm learning to Scuba Dive.
Favourite for Austen lovers.... I know that's 4
Pride and Prejudice
A great read.... I've read the novel but listening to the voices and how the novel was read really made it come alive.. You'll love it!
Hard to put down! (great for a "lost weekend")
** I rarely give 5-🌟 rating across the board, but this audio performance of "Austenland" earned each & every 🌟 **
An engaging, riveting romp into Regency-era England with Jane, a contemporary, NYC-based Austen-phile. Join Jane, as she takes her first tentative steps into her fondest fantasy; later abandoning herself to revel in this "full-immersion" experience. Along the way, she learns some deeper lessons about her life, as she reflects on her past loves. The fresh & nuanced performance of the narrator, brilliantly brings-to-life this world & its characters in a palpable way.
