(P)1989 by Recorded Books, Inc.
I've never met a Jane Austen novel I didn't love. Mark Twain has nothing on her in the realm of satire. I only wish I knew more about the period, I'm sure I would find the novels even more comical. Flo Gibson is not the narrator for Jane Austen, though. Her voice is quite gravelly. This would work nicely with quite a number of novels, but does not lend itself to the smooth tones which would seem more natural for the many young women who populate and are the main characters for Austen's novels. It was often very difficult to determine which character was being voiced, a problem I have not had with other Austen narraters.
The sound quality was not always that great, but I always enjoy Flo Gibson's narrations. I would have to say that it is my least favorite Austen book, but not horrible. It is Austen after all.
