Oh where do I begin, Ms Messenger was absolutely brilliant with her narration and capturing each character. I'm a die hard Jane Austin fan; I've read Pride and Prejudice at least every year, watched every movie production and this is my first audiobook. I think Emma does a brilliant job capturing the essence of all the characters, she has a great dramatic flare that make you fall in love with this story all over again.
The book has drama, romance and comedy, I think people forget that the book has a comedic element and the narrator captures this and I was truly entertained listening to this version of Pride and Prejudice.
The narrator's voice is really rather annoying, but overall she does a decent job of telling the story. An Austen classic.
I found it incredibly difficult to listen to the audio, the lady was either ridiculously loud or almost too quiet when she spoke.
I could not stand listening for more than three chapters, not because of Jane Austen's novel, but because the narrator shrieks from the outset. She is reading the book as if her audience were in kindergarten. Unbearable over-dramatization.
Could not tell you. I stopped listening early on for the reasons I give above.
Anyone with more restrain and good diction: Emma Thompson, Meryl Streep.
