Publisher's Summary

A delightful novel about "how girls catch husbands." Listen in to find out: What will happen to sister Lydia? Will the arrogant Lady Catherine de Burgh's intrigues be foiled? Will sister Jane marry Mr. Bingley? And especially, will Elizabeth, cured of her prejudice, and Mr. Darcy, cured of his pride, fall into each other's arms?

Listeners will also savor the wit, the sly irony and satire and comedy that Miss Austen crowds into almost every quiet, well-bred line of this novel. There is great sanity, common sense and worldly wisdom to be found in her exploration of human nature.

Sir Walter Scott said, Jane Austen had "that exquisite touch which renders ordinary commonplace things and characters interesting." This quality provides today's listeners of Pride and Prejudice with a fascinating trip into the lives of the privileged in England during the 18th century.

    Story
    "A great story to make the end of an era"

    Here we have then Bennet sisters facing a similar situation as in Sense and Sensibility. No male heirs to take over the family estate and fortune. For some reason their father made some silly deal to give it to his nephew. When the nephew comes to call to set everyone’s mind at ease it’s a disaster. He tried to get the sister to marry and him and when he’s spurred enough he leave. What does he do? Read to find out. Then each sister gets mixed up with guys and are made to look silly, brilliant and human. In the end all the matters are solved, somehow. Well, read to find out.

    "Book is great, reader is not"

    One of my favorite books, but the reader is not very skilled at differentiating between character voices. Sometimes the speed at which she reads is so fast that savoring the language and social satire is quite impossible. There are many better-read renditions out there!
