Publisher's Summary

When Mrs. Dashwood is forced by an avaricious daughter-in-law to leave the family home in Sussex, she takes her three daughters to live in a modest cottage in Devon. For Elinor, the eldest daughter, the move means a painful separation from the man she loves, but her sister Marianne finds in Devon the romance and excitement which she longs for. The contrasting fortunes and temperaments of the two girls as they struggle to cope in their different ways with the cruel events which fate has in store for them are portrayed by Jane Austen with her usual irony, humour, and profound sensibility.

    "Recommended for a long trip"

    Truly enjoyable listen of a timeless classic! Always enjoyed this book, but it had new life breathed into it by the narrator!

    "The narration = marvelous!"

    I may be prejudiced since it's my favorite Jane Austen book. The narrator was superb. I can't say enough good things about her. She was able to convey, to perfection, the personalities of each character. Highly recommend this classic audible book.

    "wonderful narration"

    I've listened to many audio books over the past six months. This narration is by far my favorite. Juliet Stevenson's characterizations are unique, spot on, and charming. She manages to do character voices that are dramatic without being cheesy. Seeing her name attached to another work would be a selling point for me.

    "Well Read!"

    Superior narration added greatly to this story. No ones weaves a satirical romance like Jane Austin.

    Story
    "Not as fabulous as one was led to believe"

    So many times I found myself rolling my eyes or yelling in frustration at the car stereo or sitting open mouthed in shock at the appalling actions of some of the characters.

    The narrator was fine, and was pretty good at different voices - but perhaps she had a cold as her nose was stuffed up the entire time she read the book. It was a little irritating.
