Publisher's Summary

"Pride and Prejudice" is a novel by Jane Austen, first published in 1813. The story follows the main character Elizabeth Bennet as she deals with issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage in the society of the landed gentry of early 19th century England.

Elizabeth is the second of five daughters of a country gentleman living near the fictional town of Meryton in Hertfordshire, near London.

Though the story is set at the turn of the 19th century, it retains a fascination for modern readers, continuing near the top of lists of "most loved books" such as "The Big Read". It has become one of the most popular novels in English literature and receives considerable attention from literary scholars.

Modern interest in the book has resulted in a number of dramatic adaptations and an abundance of novels and stories imitating Austen's memorable characters or themes.

To date, the book has sold some 20 million copies worldwide.

Unnecessary repetition of book name and author between each chapter

Between every chapter the narrator reads the book name, author, and chapter. This occurs for all 61 chapters and seems a bit unnecessary. While I appreciate knowing which chapter is about to be covered, there is really no need in hearing the book name and author so many times. Other than that, the book and performance was very good.

Excellent story & performance!

4 stars because: There are 50+ chapters. At the end of each chapter; reader says, "End of chapter _____." Then the beginning of EACH next chapter, the reader announces the name of the book, the author, and next chapter. Got on my nerves.
