Pride and Prejudice is an acclaimed work of literature, and one of Austen's most beloved novels. The story examines the manners of 19th-century British society by exposing the fortunes and misfortunes of the Bennett family. The family's main concern is marriage; Mrs. Bennett wishes to secure favorable unions for her five daughters. The story revolves around Elizabeth Bennett, whose pride prevents her from following her heart.
Flo Gibson's voice is enchanting and warm, making the listening experience indisputably pleasant. Gibson's British accent adds character to the performance, rendering it unforgettable.
Spirited, intelligent Elizabeth Bennett is alternately enchanted and affronted by Mr. Darcy. She is quick to suspend her usual, more rational judgment when it comes to him. She also is quick to believe the worst gossip about this haughty, opinionated man who soon manages to alienate Elizabeth and her family. But is the condescending air that Mr. Darcy wears an indication of his real character? Or has Elizabeth's pride gotten in the way of her chance for true romance?

David Bowie. Jane Austen. Good beer. Red Wine.
What DON'T I love? As a huge Austen fan, all these stories are enjoyable.
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, fo sho.
When Elizabeth discovers what Darcy did for Lydia.
All of it!
I would listen to this again in a few years. I really liked the way the story unfolded.
Lizzie was my favorite because she seemed very sensible. I also liked Mr. Collins; he provided comic relief.
She brought excellent emotion to the characters.
No. But sometimes I couldn't stop listening because I wanted to hear what would happen next.
I would listen to this once a year! I was inspired to reread my favorite story after watching the webseries "The Lizzie Bennet Diaries" and found this recording delightful!
Her British accent helps you get into the time and place of Regency England.
