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

    Pride and Prejudice


    What did you like best about this story?

    Although it was different time and culture it was relevant to all cultures. We all face and deal with pride and prejudice on a daily basis. Some thinking we are better than others and try to live above our means to fit in. We are so busy thinking others are so beneath us that we don't see just how bad off we really are. It also teaches not to jump to conclusion but to hear the full story first. I started out disliking Darcy and he turned out to be a decent chap. Mrs. Bennett, poor thing! and her daughters, especially Lydia. This was a good family story that let you know that we do not live in a bubble and people are free to choose and make their own decision regardless of what society thinks.


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

    The narration was well-done. Hearing the voices, you could also hear the anger, resentment, stupidity and self-righteousness. Also the cold heart turns warm. Very good reading and narration


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Every family has one!


    Any additional comments?

    At onset I thought this was going to be another Age of Innocence (boring) but it turned out to be very well written and timely.

    I've begun reading this book many many times but I just couldn't stay focused on it. The audio was perfect. I could listen as I crocheted keeping both my hands and my mind occupied.

    Story
    "Mr. Darcy meets his MATCH~ VG version Good book~"

    PLOT: classic Austen book. Proud wealth man falls for intelligent beauty.

    This is a very good edition of this book. I listed to about 10 or more samples of books before I purchased this one. Her accent is good and she talks smoothly. It is not the typical ...you have to pay attention to catch every work edition. It does not drag and Margarite Gavin is one of the better readers. I liked it...I will buy more from this reader.

    "A well read classic"

    I love the story of Pride and Prejudice and have read, listened to, and watched countless versions. I bought this audio version as it was considerably cheaper than many of the others but the sample seemed to indicate that Margarite Gavin read it tolerably well. I wasn't disappointed and can recommend this version to all.
