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.

    My commute is long and the audiobooks are longer. Brevity is not my strong suit. @alyssahoman

    "Boring with no plot"
    What was most disappointing about Jane Austen’s story?

    The story lacked an interesting plot. I kept waiting for something interesting to happen, and it never did.

    This book is overrated.

    I adored this! I'd always wanted to read Pride and Prejudice. I bought this book as Whispersync and it worked out perfectly to listen to large sections on my commute and still be able to read a bit on the weekends. Even though I already knew the basic storyline, I still felt quite a bit of suspense as to how Lizzie and Darcy would ever get together. The narration was superb. Highly recommended!

    Story
    "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.

    Passionate about reading, listening and widening my comprehension of the world. My favourite sentence: we have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.

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

    "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.

    "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.
