The story reminded me of Seven Brides for Seven Brothers in some ways. The narrator's inflection was a bit irritating at times but overall voices were unique enough to distinguish characters

Charles Bingley, a wealthy young gentleman, has moved into Netherfield Park manor, which causes much excitement in the village of Longbourn, especially among the five unmarried daughters of the Bennet household. Despite many romatic complications, the overall tone of this classic novel is, as Jane Austen described it, “light and bright, and sparkling”.

What does Helen Lisanti bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narrator, Helen Lisanti, makes the story very listen-able while driving. Her distinct voice and lovely accent add much to the enjoyment of the book. Her speaking voice reminded me of Julie Andrews' voice, which is easy on the ears for those not accustomed to British accents. I also downloaded Sense and Sensibilities, which had a different narrator, and it was a bit tedious due to the narrator's phrasing. Since P&P is a favorite story I was shopping for a relaxing listen and was pleased with this version. I will look for this narrator again for Jane Austen books.
