Summary:

Jane Austen's most famous novel, Pride and Prejudice, is brought to sparkling life in this recording from AudioFile Earphones Award-winning narrator Alison Larkin. Always a witty and original voice, Alison Larkin follows Pride and Prejudice with Songs from Regency England, giving the listener a delightful sense of what after dinner family entertainment might have sounded like in Jane Austen's time. Recorded in a drawing room not unlike the Bennets', a young lady who sounds suspiciously like Mary Bennet sings The Lonely Ash Grove, Ye Banks and Braes, and Down by the Salley Gardens. This fresh and hugely entertaining listen from 'the English American' joined with Austen's deft satire results in pure, boundless FUN.

    Not for foreigners. Old English , narrator is nice but prepare for understanding the words but not meaning ;) difficult book.

  • Alison Keenan

    The best Austen narration I have ever heard. I loved every minute of it and I loved the songs at the end. A very funny rendition - authentic and moving too. I can't recommend Alison Larkin's narration highly enough - the songs at the end are the icing on the cake.
