Sometimes the Dashwood girls do not seem like sisters. Elinor is all calmness and reason, and can be relied upon for practical, common sense opinions. Marianne, on the other hand, is all sensibility, full of passionate and romantic feeling. She has no time for dull common sense - or for middle-aged men of 35, long past the age of marriage. True love can only be felt by the young, of course. And if your heart is broken at the age of 17, how can you ever expect to recover from the passionate misery that fills your life, waking and sleeping? An Oxford Bookworms Library reader for learners of English, adapted from the Jane Austen original by Clare West.

"The most consistent of all series in terms of language control, length, and quality of storytelling." (David R Hill, ELT Journal Review)
As I expected, the novel, the adaptation and everything is very good. But, in fact, it was a experiment for me, because I'm looking for a very easy text. I need get advance in my English level. I'd like to have the book and the audible version at the same time. Is that possible?. Having both (text and audible book) I could understand and learn better. Thank you!
"prefer english narrarator.americans"
americans in the first instance but they too would enjoy English narraration.
pride and prejudice needs to be narrated by british who are used to the metre and and where emphasis should be put.
Her way so Americanised, an English classic needs an English classic reader to talk in these books, Just as I would like and American to narrate American authors.nothin
why was not told when buying a kindle book that English classics are not read by English readers.it spoiled my enjoyment of this well known novel for and wont listen to it again.
