Love How Emma Acted Out Each Parts!
No Need To Rename It.
I hardly have time to read an actual book. Being able to work and clean house while listening to a book has been wonderful I enjoyed the old time setting of the book an how Emma Messenger Brings the book to life it's quiet wonderful.
Listening and reading a book is the best way to read a book!!!
Yes, love this book narrator is very good, and the price is awesome.
Reading Darcy's letter.
Darcy and Lizzy's encounter after he first proposed at his house.
True love is deeper than his pride and her prejudice.
Every women should read this book, and every man should learn from it.
I obviously love this story, but I found there were times that the narrator (who is generally good) reads sentences so that it was a little boring -- when the narration wasn't a character speaking, there were times (but certainly not the bulk of the reading) that it sounded rote without much thought or feeling for what was being said. It got a little distracting, but wasn't as critical since I am well acquainted with the story. The variation of character voices is good, but the
A book every thoughtful young woman should read. Honest and thoughtful human emotions covering a variety of personalities and character types joined together representing in effect a general overview in which any person may find themselves dealing with at some given point in their lives and on that score is found instructive as well as entertaining
This is a great book and a great reading. The story might be a little slow for those who like an action packed story, but for those just expecting a historical romance and family tale. I am sure you will enjoy it.
The reader Emma Messenger is amazing! I felt like I was listening to a Broadway performance. The extents she took her voice acting to were tremendous and really helped differentiate the characters and enliven the story.
No, not really that bad...
Of course, there is nothing to be said about the story other than one of the best ever written. The only reason I downloaded this version was from the need for a 'refresher'. I have read Pride and Prejudice dozens of times, but had never listened to it. I have seen all the various movies, of course, but felt it was time to add it to my audiobook library as well.
However, I felt the need to comment, in particular with reference to the performance of the narrative. It was at times, tolerable, and most of the time, spine-chilling. I am not musically-trained, so I cannot comment on the specific notes she was hitting, but the narrator's shrill, sing-song, and far-fetched performance was obviously meant to be projected into a large theater. I was listening with my MiniJambox and was beginning to worry about this version of Mrs. Bennet shattering to pieces the few nice wine glasses I owned. Not to mention the howling dogs in my neighborhood... However, determined to finish the story, I put on my headphones to finish. Turned down very, very low.
Not bad for a few dollars, but say good-bye to your high-frequency hearing range.
