Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential: Though I read and enjoyed Pride and Prejudice in college, I wanted a new perspective on the classic and so started listening to it. Kate Reading's interpretation is simply marvelous - her distinct characterizations of the Bennett sisters and their suitors absolutely enchanting. —Diana Dapito

    "Not dissapointed"

    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.

    "Too damn fast"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    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.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kate Reading’s performances?

    Hell no

    "For me boring"

    I tried 14 chapters but still was not able to get involved. Narrating is good.

    "Magnifique!"

    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.

    "Wonderfully exciting!"

    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.

    "Excellent"

    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.
