Juliet Stevenson is amazing. She does a great job at giving the text the inflection it needs. She can portray happy, distraught, shallow, etc. All that is necessary for a true portrayal of Austen's characters. But I felt like, somewhere in part 2, Jane Austen forgot where she had meant for this book to go and it sort of dragged on with the details of everyday until she could finally work her way back around to the desired ending.
Once again Orson Scott Card takes the reader into a fantastical world all of his own creation. What an imagination this man has! The book was a good listen; I feel that it could have been better (and OSC agrees in his intro). Not as good as the Ender's Game books, but still a great exercise for the imagination.
