I simply loved it!

Where does Pride and Prejudice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This was the first audiobook I've listened to. I loved it. I couldn't stop reading and listening. Immersion reading is wonderful, especially for those who have English as a second language...

Who was your favorite character and why?

Elizabeth. She's strong and confident, and yet very sensitive

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

It seemed to me that she brings the story alive.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Definitely.

Great Book and Great Narrator

Would you listen to Pride and Prejudice again? Why?

I, like others, have read this many times. This is the first time I 'read' it in the audio format. I enjoyed it this time as much as any other and the narrator did a great job! Just like the previous times I read the book, I was sorry to have the story end.

Boring story, Great narration!

Really the narration was the only thing that made me able to tolerate this story to the end.

Disappointed!

Any additional comments?

I thought Darcy was going to be more interesting, but this story just bores me with all the gossip and pettiness between the families.

OK..

The story was ok and the narrator was good but it just seemed to drag on and I got board.

The audio is terrible

Must be an old audio book? I didn't like the performance and the characters were hard to keep track of (although I often have this problem with audio books with lackluster performers). Wouldn't recommend it and couldn't finish it.

Not dissapointed

I chose this version of P&P over others after reading reviews, and I'm glad I chose this one. The narration is very well done, but it took me a little bit to get used to the thick accent and classic vocabulary (this was my first JA book). I'm so happy to finally understand and know one of the classics, and I plan on on reading a lot more of Jane in the future.

Too damn fast

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

This is a fantastic book, as all of you know, and since this is an Audible Editor's Essential Pick, I had high hopes. Reader goes way, way, way too fast. Exceptionally disappointing. This is my 3rd Audible Editor's Essentials that I disagree with, don't plan on trusting these folks ever again.

Would you be willing to try another one of Kate Reading’s performances?

Hell no
