In this Audible Exclusive production, Academy Award® nominee Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl) narrates one of Jane Austen’s most beloved works, Sense and Sensibility. In this timeless tale of misguided romance and heartbreak, two teenage heroines must overcome the pitfalls of Georgian England’s high society in order to achieve the love and happiness they seek. The admiration that Pike has for Austen’s work is shown clearly through this passionate delivery of Austen’s first published novel.

I can’t say enough good things about this book. Rosamund Pike’s performance made the story new and fresh for me. I had just finished Pride and Prejudice read by Ms. Pike and enjoyed it so much that there was no question that Sense and Sensibility would be my next listen. If there was a third Austen book read by Ms Pike, I would be listening now! Even if you have read the book or listened to other recordings, try this one, it is that good.

It's a story you think you know: the age-old tale of "star-cross'd lovers"; two families at war; a romance, so pure and absolute, fated for a tragic end. It's a story so thoroughly embedded in our culture, and so frequently retold. Yet, nothing captures the spark, the possibility, and the surprise of Shakespeare's work quite like this....

This was a wonderful listen and I thoroughly enjoyed Hewson’s adaptation and Armitage’s reading. I now want to read their collaboration on Hamlet. I subscribed to Audible for just this type of original story telling and books only available through Audible.
