Pride and Prejudice

Unabridged Audiobook

Duration: 11 hours 12 minutes

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.

    Been reading the book and listening to this audiobook for the nth time, still, the story leaves me breathless. Deadly awesome.???? Elizabeth Klett was one of my fave narrator, lovin the way she delivers every words. Hands down.

    Elizabeth klett is just the best reader ever! I loved her lecture and enjoyed every peace of it! She is just fenomenal.

  • Betsy H

    The narrator is excellent and this book is a classic for a reason. Yes, the narration tends to seem a bit rushed but the book is a long one. Her characterization of the haughty mother, Mrs. Bennet is top notch. Elizabeth Klett's reading of Jane Eyre is one of her best and I highly recommend that book next if you enjoy this genre). I appreciate the free books on this site, they fill in nicely when waiting for next month's credit.
