Publisher's Summary

Jane Austen's most popular novel, originally published in 1813, some 17 years after it was first written, presents the Bennet family of Longbourn. Against the background of gossipy Mrs. Bennet and the detached Mr. Bennet, the quest is on for husbands for the five daughters. The spotlight falls on Elizabeth, second eldest, who is courted by Darcy, though initially she is more concerned with the fate of her other sisters.

Best narrator ever!

Emilia Fox is once again amazing. She brings every character to live so as one can picture them exactly as Austen describes them. If you love Austen this is definatley the audio version for you as she brings an energy into it which makes even me, a not so avid fan, warm to the story. Once you listen to this listen to other books which Emilia Fox reads in particular the Agatha Christie books. Again she gives each character a life of their own and she is by far one of the best if not the best narrator in the world.

Brought to Life

As the previous reviewer states, the narrator brings this story to life. Through her skill, you are transported into world Jane Austin has created.

I came to this story more out of curiosity through its fame as a literary work but was thoroughly impressed by both the quality of the presentation and the story itself. Highly recommended!
