    One of Jane Austen’s most beloved works, Pride and Prejudice, is vividly brought to life by Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl). In her bright and energetic performance of this British classic, she expertly captures Austen’s signature wit and tone. Her attention to detail, her literary background, and her performance in the 2005 feature film version of the novel provide the perfect foundation from which to convey the story of Elizabeth Bennett, her four sisters, and the inimitable Mr. Darcy.

    Akela says: "A perfect narration of a perfect book"
    "Wonderful reading of a literary classic!"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Pride and Prejudice to be better than the print version?

    Normally I would say no to this question but I absolutely enjoyed this audio book more than my first reading of the book years ago which I loved as well.


    What does Rosamund Pike bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Rosamund gives such depth to the characters through her different inflections and voices. The way she portrayed some of the characters had me smiling from ear to ear.


    Any additional comments?

    For anyone that loves Pride and Prejudice, I suggest this audio book. I was afraid it might be too slow for a listen but it proved to be just the opposite. I don't think I'll ever enjoy reading it again unless I am listening to Rosamund read it to me.
