    Pride and Prejudice captures the affections of class-conscious 18th-century English families with matrimonial aims and rivalries. This story of the Bennet family and the novel's two protagonists, Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy, is told with a wit that author Jane Austen feared might prove "rather too light and bright, and sparkling".

    Elizabeth says: "Perfection!"
    "Awesome story, great narration"
    Overall

    I love this story - I love the narration! Well worth the money! If you like Jane Austen, I think you'll love this reading!

    Story
    (560)

    Set in the context of Victorian social and medical debate, this novel is about rebellion, posing fundamental questions about the nature of social authority and obedience. This revised edition draws on recent theoretical work on gender and class.

    Story

    I loved the movie North and South so I thought I would love to book. I could not get into the book so I decided to go the audiobook route. I love to hear Juliet Stevenson read so it was a great deal for me. I did not love the actual book ending - but that has nothing to do with the quality of the story/narrator. I just liked the movie ending better.

  • Freddy and Fredericka

    Story
    (89)

    Best-selling, critically acclaimed author Mark Helprin's work has drawn favorable comparisons to an elite group of literary legends, including James Joyce, Franz Kafka, Edgar Allan Poe, and Thomas Mann. Helprin's sheer comic brilliance shines in this ingenious farce.

    Chris says: "God save Craig-Vyvyan! I liked it."
    "Fabulously Funny!"

    Story

    The narrator, Robert Ian Mackenzie, made a wonderful book fabulous! The story of Freddy and Fredericka is funny - so much so that I continually laughed out loud during many sections. Mackenzie made funny scenes even funnier. I HIGHLY recommend this book. One caution, there are a number of curse words - so if you are offended by F***, S***, and more - skip this book.

    Story
    (9)

    Of The Lion of St. Mark, G.A. Henty wrote: "I have laid my story in the time not of the triumphs of Venice but of her hardest struggle for existence, when she defended herself successfully against the coalition of Hungary, Padua, and Genoa, for never at any time were the virtues of Venice, her steadfastness, her patriotism, and her willingness to make all sacrifice for her independence more brilliantly shown.

    Jeffrey says: "A Great Listen"
    "Great Story - bad narration"
    Overall

    We love G.A. Henty novels and were so excited to get this story. We find it very very very hard to listen to because of the narration. I should have listened to the sample first :(
