Austen’s classic tale of love and values in the class-conscious England of the late 18th century. The story follows Elizabeth Bennet, one of five sisters, as she deals with issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education and marriage in landed-gentry society.

Historical & SciFi Book Lover, especially Georgette Heyer, Lois McMaster Bujold, Connie Willis (& New Who). Also books for the kids.
I feel like I have just galloped thro' this wonderful book. The Narrator is both exasperating and wonderful. I am in awe of how fast she could read this novel, which means that the lack of natural pauses makes conversations confusing and overly fast paced. But on the other hand the narration has brought out nuances to the book I would have otherwise missed. However, exasperation has won out - hence the low rating.
I love this book, and the narrator's performance was very well done. The only thing that detracts from her is the occasional rough edit of the audio.
"Oh no -it's read by an American..."
Downloaded this for my OU course but feel like I'm listening to Pollyanna. Was expecting something beautifully mellifluous with an English accent frankly. Apologies to any Americans reading this review - suspect you'd feel the same if it were Raymond Chandler with a Scottish accent.
