I would rate this performance quite high. I listened to quite a few before I settled on this edition and I'm glad I did.
Pride & Prejudice is one of the original romance novels. Lizzy Bennett is strong-willed and Mr. Darcy is dream-worthy. But we already know that, don't we?
I thought her narrative voice was very engaging. Pride & Prejudice relies on it equally to those of the speaking characters so it was important that she gave it the right flair. I believe she did.
The book is already made into many films and I would not presume I could do it better.
The narrator did a fabulous job of giving Mr. Stephens and all the other characters unique voices. He also had a way of making sure the humor of the novel, which is subtle with subtext, came across exactly as the author undoubtedly intended it to. I thoroughly enjoyed his reading.
I don't think I could compare this book with any other. It's quite unique.
I can't say I have a favorite scene. The book is complex and tightly interwoven. But I loved Mr. Stephens and felt for him, even as he tried to keep his emotions bottled up.
It made me laugh and this was surprising.
