Publisher's Summary

Jane Austen's most popular novel, originally published in 1813, some 17 years after it was first written, presents the Bennet family of Longbourn. Against the background of gossipy Mrs. Bennet and the detached Mr. Bennet, the quest is on for husbands for the five daughters. The spotlight falls on Elizabeth, second eldest, who is courted by Darcy, though initially she is more concerned with the fate of her other sisters.

    "Maybe I'll try again sometime"

    Tried twice but the annoying personalities are so very annoying with this narrator. I re-read the Audio review and it says everything I would say about the narration. Should have read it more carefully.

    But, like seeing a play performed, you're getting an intrepretation of the characters. Great plot, great theme (pride and pre-judgement), amazing in its historical context but the interpretation of the characters makes them seem simply absurd --I couldn't take them seriously.

    And when a book is 13 hours long, someone should consider the percentage of time the listener has to listen to irritatating people in order to finish the book.

    Story
    "Jane Austen is a genius."

    We have known that all of Jane Austen's books are incredible, and Pride and Prejudice is the finest one, but this performance by Emilia Fox is stellar as well. She uses the voices of the actors/ characters in the famed BBC production for many of the characters. While this is inconsistent her overall performance is still outstanding and brought a new enjoyment and dimension to an old favorite. I highly recommend it.

    "My absolute favourite"
    If you could sum up Pride and Prejudice in three words, what would they be?

    Given the three word title, it seems rude to override the author's choice - pride and prejudice really says it best!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Eliza Bennett: she is sassy, intelligent, determined, headstrong and loyal, she can also admit when she's wrong, very necessary


    Any additional comments?

    Wonderful classic to be enjoyed several times over

    "Classics Exercise the Mind"

    While doing my laundry now, I listen intently to the well versed story, Pride and Prejudice. Witty, and thought provoking, it is actually said that reading and studying the classics will enhance the abilities of the mind. The book is also inspiring as the characters discuss the importance of hard work and of accomplishments; I am more inclined to further my own education from thought provoking conversations from the book. An added bonus: my friends are beginning to laugh as they hear the vocabulary of my children beginning to change since they have been listening to the classics on CD. If you are interested in beginning your own study of the classics, aside from the Bible, this is a great one to start on.

    "Great work"

    I thought the narrator was first rate. This is the book to listen to for first time Jane Austen listeners. Fun Characters and morals. Mr Darcy truly takes getting beat-up verbally from a woman like a man, and like most verbal bashings of that kind he is misjudged by that woman.

    "Pride & Prejudice"

    It was difficult to follow the plot. The translation from Enlish to American was difficult. The most annoying voice I have ever heard.

    "No It's Emma"

    I disagree that Pride and Prejudice is Jane Austen's most popular novel. I've always been undeer the belief that "Emma" was not only her best but also most popular.

    My suggestion: buy both and take your pick. :-)

    "A classic"

    No one can fault the reading of this classic book, my favourite novel of all time, although Audible has introduced me to many other classic authors.

    "Pride and Prejudice"

    After seeing and enjoying the films made from Jane Austen books I thought I might enjoy listening to her stories but sorry to say I found it very hard work even taking into account that the stories were written in Victorian times.

    "Blasphemy!"

    I had managed to avoid this book for 40 years and finally gave it a listen when I was stuck for something else to brighten my commute with. The narration is good and never gets staid and stodgy. But my, isn't it a very silly story? I guess I am too old now to see any appeal in it whatsoever.
