Passionate about reading, listening and widening my comprehension of the world. My favourite sentence: we have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.
I really think not
the story itself
After jane Eyre I though I would have found a great story again, but I really dislike this story. I can't finish the audiobook.
Really the narration was the only thing that made me able to tolerate this story to the end.
I thought Darcy was going to be more interesting, but this story just bores me with all the gossip and pettiness between the families.
Must be an old audio book? I didn't like the performance and the characters were hard to keep track of (although I often have this problem with audio books with lackluster performers). Wouldn't recommend it and couldn't finish it.
I chose this version of P&P over others after reading reviews, and I'm glad I chose this one. The narration is very well done, but it took me a little bit to get used to the thick accent and classic vocabulary (this was my first JA book). I'm so happy to finally understand and know one of the classics, and I plan on on reading a lot more of Jane in the future.
This is a fantastic book, as all of you know, and since this is an Audible Editor's Essential Pick, I had high hopes. Reader goes way, way, way too fast. Exceptionally disappointing. This is my 3rd Audible Editor's Essentials that I disagree with, don't plan on trusting these folks ever again.
This book is mislabeled unabridged. It is abridged. Other than that it is well done.
"Disappointed with this classic Austen work"
I don't want to slate this version too much, but I must be honest in its appraisal.
I should have been less hasty in my choice of narrator. Kate Reading hasn't made a complete hash of the story telling by any means, but her style of reading and character interpretation just didn't meet my listening needs. I like to get lost in a story, especially one that I've read more than a dozen times in hard copy, but it just didn't work for me. I found myself becoming irritated and could only listen to it in short bursts. Of course different styles suit different listeners, this may suit another member but not my best choice so far. Sorry.
