Publisher's Summary

Charles Bingley, a wealthy young gentleman, has moved into Netherfield Park manor, which causes much excitement in the village of Longbourn, especially among the five unmarried daughters of the Bennet household. Despite many romatic complications, the overall tone of this classic novel is, as Jane Austen described it, “light and bright, and sparkling”.

Love the story, but not the narrator's 'voices'.

Pride and Prejudice with it's tight plotting and wonderful characters never fails to lift my spirits, be it in book or film form, so I was looking forward to the experience of listening to it as an audio book. Unfortunately I often felt irritated by some of the character voices the narrator created. Poor Charlotte Lucas sounded like a country bumpkin, Mr Bingley had an odd kind of Northern-ish accent, and Mr Bennett was a croaky old man instead of an ironic wit; Mrs Bennett and Mr Collins didn't fare any better either! I can't help wishing I had paid a bit more and bought the Juliet Stevenson version, as I would imagine her voice to be perfect for reading Jane Austen.
