Audible Editor Reviews

Why we think it's Essential: Though I read and enjoyed Pride and Prejudice in college, I wanted a new perspective on the classic and so started listening to it. Kate Reading's interpretation is simply marvelous - her distinct characterizations of the Bennett sisters and their suitors absolutely enchanting. —Diana Dapito

Publisher's Summary

Jane Austen's story of Mrs. Bennet's finding husbands for her daughters is told with wit and charm. A must for lovers of good literature. Commuters Library presents Pride and Prejudice read by Kate Reading.

    "Better than great"

    In my opinion, Pride and Prejudice is the best book ever written by anyone at any time, and the Pride and Prejudice movie (with Colin Firth) is the best movie ever made. The Kate Reading audible version of Pride and Prejudice is the only version I have heard, but I rank this audible book at the very top of all that I have heard. I first read Pride and Prejudice in college (in an English novels class) and fell in love with Jane Austen's writing. I have read and re-read every book she has ever written, but this one is still my favorite. It is the greatest love story every told. I believe Elizabeth Bennett is the most intersting and likable character ever created - Mr. Darcy is the most compelling and romantic character ever created. Lady Bennett is an extremely unlikable and embarrassing character (but she is a well drawn by the author). My teenage grandson laughs about Mr. Collins (a truly riduculous person) and his Lady Katherine (what a woman!). There are many other characters of different types who come alive in this book and whom you will always remember.
    The wriing is so exquisite - the sentences so very well crafted - the characters so believable and recognizable - the story so well and artfully told - that since I first read Pride and Prejudice it has been the yard stick by which I have judged all books. Jane Austen has a wonderful sense of humor, a romantic heart and an extrordinary talent for writing - she is at her best in Pride and Prejudice. This audible version does justice to the story and Austen's writing. Ther reader does not try to upstage Austen. Very very well done.

    "A favorite novel, a favorite narrator."

    This is the classic unabridged version of Pride and Prejudice. If you love Jane Austen, you know this novel. The narration is by the incomparable Kate Reading. She gets the emotions of the character just right, from the cringeworthy Mrs. Bennet to the ludicrous Mr. Collins to the amiable Mr. Bingley.

    Any additional comments?

    Pride and Prejudice is my favorite book and I've read it at least a dozen times. Kate Reading not only narrated it beautifully, but she matched the tone of voice I'd imagined for each of the character. It was perfect and I highly recommend this.

    I loved this book! I could listen to it over and over again. I've seen the movie, but honestly it doesn't do the book justice.

    "Loved it "

    I had initially tried listenjng to Pride and prejudice by a different narrator and couldn't get through the first chapter. then I found this version and honestly the narrator is perfect. She brings a lot of character to the story and as it is one I have read many times, it was still engagung and enjoyable.

    "Disappointed with this classic Austen work"

    I don't want to slate this version too much, but I must be honest in its appraisal.

    I should have been less hasty in my choice of narrator. Kate Reading hasn't made a complete hash of the story telling by any means, but her style of reading and character interpretation just didn't meet my listening needs. I like to get lost in a story, especially one that I've read more than a dozen times in hard copy, but it just didn't work for me. I found myself becoming irritated and could only listen to it in short bursts. Of course different styles suit different listeners, this may suit another member but not my best choice so far. Sorry.
