Have listened to a lot of audiobooks but, while I know some listeners really enjoyed it, I am afraid I too couldn't get past the style and voice of the reader. His over-articulated words seems so ponderous and really very dreary (same for A Christmas Carol) I have set it aside and will read it on paper instead. Look forward to Anton Lessor, Simon Prebble, Simon Vance or Mandy Weston reading this!!!
Not to be confused with Jane Austen, but lots of fun to listen to. David Rintoul reads it with the full haughtiness of Darcy (he was Darcy, in fact, in a 1980 version FYI!).
