Pride and Prejudice

Summary:

Pride and Prejudice is Jane Austen's classic comic romance, in which the five Bennett sisters try to find that most elusive creature: a single man in possession of a large fortune. Sparks fly when sweet, pretty Jane meets their new neighbor, Mr. Bingley, but her sister Elizabeth is most offended by his haughty friend, Mr. Darcy. This is Austen at the height of her powers: the ironic narration, hilariously drawn supporting characters, and romantic suspense make this her most enduringly popular novel. (Summary by Elizabeth Klett)

    I agree that Elizabeth Klett is an excellent reader. My only issue with the narration is that she changes from American English for third-person narration to British English for spoken character parts. It works, because her British English is very good, and her character differentiations through voicing are first rate. Apart from a few mispronunciations, it's all very successful. There's really nothing to add about the novel. It continues to be read because it's such an enjoyable work and Jane Austen's treatment of shades of gray make the dichotomy of the novel's title very ironic. Her first title--First Impressions--was much better.

    An amazing classic-LOVE this story. I don't think I would have even enjoyed it as much had I read it on my own-the narrator was amazing!

  • Jayne Breckon

    story was great, the narrator was too fast in places though and the repetition of novel name and author at start of every chapter was annoying.

  • Philippa Winsnes

    The novel was a bit tedious at times yet very fitting at the same time. The reader was so good that I actually searched for more novels read by her! She is incredible.
