Classic story but irritating narration.
Dreadful narrator rushed
I have since bought the Juliet Stevenson version which is wonderful this is my favourite book on the planet and to have it spoiled was very sad. I will give the Stevenson version 5 stars
As I said favourite book on the planet - I love the Austen books
Very rushed almost gabbled in parts and some of her pronunciation is not the accepted which is very jarring, not pleasant to listen to at all.
A wonderful story
I went back and bought the Juliet Stevenson version from you which is wonderful, she reads it beautifully, it is a pity that you can't return books that you hate because of poor reading
