Publisher's Summary

In one of the most popular novels in English literature, excitement begins to fizz in the Bennett household when young and eligible Mr. Charles Bingley rents the house nearby, and brings along his haughty and even wealthier friend, Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy. While Mr. Darcy irks the vivacious Elizabeth, the second of the five Bennett girls, Elizabeth annoys Mr. Darcy. Filled with witticisms, clever repartees, and delicate quadrilles of flirtation and intrigue, their romantic clash can't help but suggest that the two are meant for each other.

    "One genius deserves another."

    I have listened to Kate Reading's narrations of Pride and Prejudice, and of Middlemarch, and after these many hours I still am amazed by the versatility of her beautiful voice. She creates entire English families and villages, and when a Redding narration is finished the listener is so sorry to say goodbye to these characters, made real by this voice. My only objection to Kate Reading (aka Kate Redding on some websites) is that she hides her light under a bushel by recording too many titles that are not worthy of her skill. I assume she needs to be paid for her work as much as the next person and maybe she is driven to some choices by the need for more lucrative royalties. But so few readers can do what she does: she has a moral obligation not stop until she has recorded all of Austen (Persuasion, please1) and Trollope and Dickens and the Brontes!

    "Great Narration!"

    I have listened to other versions of Pride and Prejudice. Kate Reading is the best by far. I found myself listening to the story and not thinking about the narrator's pitch or tone. I enjoyed the book all over again.

    "Great book, excellent narration"

    Kate Reading does a wonderful job narrating. She is especially excellent performing the dialogues of the female characters. We really enjoyed this.
