    The first of Jane Austen's novels to be published, Sense and Sensibility marked the debut of England's primary novelist of manners. Convinced that "three or four families in a country village is the very thing to work upon", Austen created a brilliant tragicomedy of flirtation and folly.

    EVERETT says: "Enjoyable reading of a great classic"
    "sense and sensibilty"
    Overall

    a joy to listen to.

    Pride and Prejudice captures the affections of class-conscious 18th-century English families with matrimonial aims and rivalries. From its famous opening sentence, the story of the Bennet family and of the novel's two protagonists, Elizabeth and Darcy, told with a wit that its author feared might prove "rather too light and bright, and sparkling", delights its most familiar readers as thoroughly as it does those who encounter it for the first time.

    Mary says: "great book, bad recording"
    "pride and prejudice"

    The Unicorn says that humans are brought to Narnia only in time of greatest need, and that time is now. The great Lion Aslan, the heart of Narnia, is missing. An impostor roams the land in his place, enslaving Aslan's loyal creatures and spreading treachery and lies. Only King Tirian and his small band of loyal followers are left to fight the last battle in this magnificent ending to The Chronicles of Narnia.

    Bryan J. Peterson says: "A bittersweet conclusion."

    Louise's goal is to see that all women experience self-love, self-worth, self-esteem, and a powerful place in society. In her inimitably warm and forthright manner, she offers penetrating insights on how women of all ages and backgrounds can achieve this goal and make the coming years the most productive, fulfilling, and empowering ones ever.

    Mansfield Park, the idyllic Bertram family estate, becomes home to a poor young relative, Fanny. In this wealthy world of social accomplishments and flirtations, the sensible Fanny finds herself out of place, yet secretly in love with her cousin, Edmund. Jane Austen employs her unerring wit to brilliantly capture the social and moral values of an English society at a time of great upheaval.

    Hadley B Cabral says: "Narrator misses story's subtle tones"
    "mansfield park"
    Overall

    excellent
