Audible Editor Reviews

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.

Publisher's Summary

Many consider this rich social commentary to be Jane Austen's finest novel. It is certainly among her more famous ones. Austen sets her entertaining study of manners and misconceptions against the backdrop of a class-conscious society in 18th century England.

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?

    She brought excellent emotion to the characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Would you listen to Pride and Prejudice again? Why?

    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!


    What does Flo Gibson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her British accent helps you get into the time and place of Regency England.
