My favorite story, there's just no writing in modern day literature to compare to the beauty of Austen's stories. The narration was great.

A classic read for a reason. The narrator was fabulous except in her male impersonations. Those were quite painful.

Wit and Whimsey abound in this humorous story about Regency-Era courtship

Dreadful narration. Took s meat cleaver to Austen's wonderful syntax.

This was a favorite when I was young and was even better as an adult when I could appreciate the wit! The narrator does such a magnificent job of capturing the sarcasm throughout the book and especially the utter ridiculousness of the mother. Will be listening to this book again soon!

Marvelous literature, as is to be expected of Jane Austen, and Marguerite Gavin does an outstanding narration (and I am picky about narrators).

BOOK: I'm on a quest to listen to as many classics as possible. Albeit appealing and even humorous at times, Pride and Prejudice was generally slow and somewhat pretentious. Nevertheless, if I learned anything from the book, it's that few differences exist in people from that era to today. NARRATION: If I could give a rating above a 5, I would. Marguerite Gavin brought what was 'alive' about this book to life! Certainly one of my favorite narrators. Narrating is a talent. She's got it!
