    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.

    Would you listen to Pride and Prejudice again? Why?

    I really enjoyed the story and character development.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Lizzy or Elizabeth was my favorite character, because she is not easily fooled and admits when she is wrong.


    What didn’t you like about Flo Gibson’s performance?

    It was a little difficult to tell the difference between the characters voices. I had a hard time identifying who was talking and when.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end of course! :)


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you for providing this book for me to listen to. I am very grateful.

    After a sad and neglected childhood as an orphan, Jane Eyre was hired by Edward Rochester as governess for his ward. Jane was pleased with the quiet country life at Thornfield, with the beautiful old manor house and gardens, with the book-filled library, and with her own comfortable room. But there were stories of a strange tenant, a woman who laughed like a maniac, and who stayed in rooms on the third floor.
