    Many consider this rich social commentary to be Jane Austen's finest novel. It is certainly among her more famous ones. Austen sets her entertaining study of manners and misconceptions against the backdrop of a class-conscious society in 18th-century England.

    Upon knocking Flo Gibson for her readings, I ask that you at least give her credit and respect as a pioneer in the audiobook industry. She did this on her own dime when nobody else thought there was money in reading the classics aloud. She may not be the best but she should be honored for her work in our circles. Here is an excerpt from her biography on Wikipedia:Gibson started her own recorded books company, Audio Book Contractors, Inc. in 1983 at a time when there were very few audio book companies, and the few that existed were not including unabridged classic audiobooks in their catalogues. Realizing the importance of preserving such works for the listening public, she created her own company to preserve unabridged classic books for the listening audience. She then employed local talent from the Washington theatre community to help her in the recording, monitoring, packaging and distribution of all varieties of classic books on cassettes. Some of these early employees, such as Grover Gardner, Mary Woods and John MacDonald, have gone on to continue their careers with great success in the recorded book industry and related fields.
