Pride and Prejudice
- By: Jane Austen
- Narrated by: Rosamund Pike
- Length: 11 hrs and 35 mins
One of Jane Austen’s most beloved works, Pride and Prejudice, is vividly brought to life by Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike ( Gone Girl). In her bright and energetic performance of this British classic, she expertly captures Austen’s signature wit and tone. Her attention to detail, her literary background, and her performance in the 2005 feature film version of the novel provide the perfect foundation from which to convey the story of Elizabeth Bennett, her four sisters, and the inimitable Mr. Darcy.

Would you consider the audio edition of Pride and Prejudice to be better than the print version?
Not better necessarily, but as an American, it certainly adds to the feel of Jane Austen. So, actually, maybe yes, better than the print. Best if read while you listen to it!
What about Rosamund Pike’s performance did you like?
I mean...the moment she opens her mouth it's like silk. Trying to change my voice for our daughter every time I read a good book gets difficult, and tiring, and sometimes I forget which voice I used for which character. This is one of my favorite books everrrrrr, and so as not to spoil it for our 11-year-old, Rosamund delights the imagination as we read along.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
No, more like as background, but only because I've seen the movies and read the book repeatedly.
