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.

I really enjoyed Rosamund Pike's reading of Pride and Prejudice. I've always wanted to read the Austens but I couldn't find the time. Now, I'm enjoying listening to it every night for just a bit before bed. She does an exceptional job at the voices so you never feel lost. She has a perfect balance of emotion. I will most likely listen to this multiple times. I will also be looking for more books read by her. Well done!

Emmy Award-winning actress Tatiana Maslany narrates a brand-new special edition recording of the first audiobook in the worldwide best-selling trilogy from Suzanne Collins! In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

I have loved these books for years. I heard this was an excellent audiobook so I bought it and I don't regret it at all. I truly hope she records the other two at some point because she gets it. The dialogue is perfectly executed, the voices are great. You feel it. Catherine McCormick is wonderful but she just doesn't pull off the teenager vibe. I'm sad I've finished it already! I guess I'll have to listen again!
