Missing words and names mid sentence ruined this

Classic story that was in general narrated well but I became infuriated by the repeated oddity of place names simply omitted mid sentence. There was also other fluffs such as repeated paragraphs. Call me pedantic but these just ruin the flow of a story for me. I would be tempted to try one of the other versions of this if you're likely to feel similarly.

Good,but.

Good story and well read as far as I am concerned. My issue is with missing words. Not just unspoken but edited out. Mainly the regiment names and some town names. I do not understand the reason behind this.

High pitched mother voice

I really enjoyed the story, but the narrators version of the mother's voice gave me a headache. Very high pitched louder than the others and gave me a headache. Took me a few different sitting to get through this just because I couldn't stand the mother voice.

The voice work is too enthusiastic

The narrator starts out enthusiastically, delivering an excited Mrs. Bennet at the prospect of an aristocrat moving to her town and maybe some day marrying one of her daughters. But then all of the characters' lines are delivered with almost the same enthusiasm throughout the book. You'd think that Jane Austen ended every other sentence with an exclamation mark. I'm not a huge fan.
