Jane Austen's most famous novel, Pride and Prejudice is brought to sparkling new life in this "wonderful, unforgettable" recording from AudioFile Earphones award-winning narrator Alison Larkin.
Always a witty and original voice, Alison Larkin follows her narration of Pride and Prejudice with songs from Regency England, to give the listener a sense of what after dinner family entertainment might have sounded like in Jane Austen's time.
Recorded in a drawing room not unlike the Bennets', a young lady who sounds suspiciously like Mary Bennet sings The Lonely Ash Grove, Ye Banks and Braes, and Down by the Salley Gardens, making up in vocal enthusiasm what she lacks in polish.

Pride and Prejudice with Songs from Regency England
: Jane Austen
I absolutely adore this book. The Bennet family and their friends allow us to see a little peek into their lives. Romance between a mysterious handsome brooding man, a young woman who knows what she is looking for in life is very interesting. I will listening to this book many more times.
The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed. Alison Larkin creates the feeling of being right there in the story. I enjoyed the addition of music from the era. Well done!!!
