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.
The reader does a fantastic job. The characters come alive and the tone is just right. If you're a Jane Austen fan, this book is a great listen.
From the beginning of this story I was captivated. Knowing that it was Mrs. Bennett's business to see each of her daughters married, one could feel an entertaining tale unfolding. One can see Mrs. Bennett has her favorite daughters and her least favorite, Miss Elizabeth Bennett. However in her favor, she was her father's most beloved. I immediately began to empathize with Elizabeth and was completely drawn into her story. I enjoyed every moment of listening.
This is the first Jane Austen book that I have listened to and it was absolutely wonderful. I listened to it twice. I highly recommend this selection. The reader was very pleasant to listen to as well. I hope that you enjoy.
I was a little apprehensive at first with narrator esp. when Kate should imitate a male's voice, oh did I cringe! However I was pleasantly surprised that as time went by I was not as aware her impersonation.
I?ve loved this story for years, and this is a complement to the book and mini series. It is a must listen.
