Publisher's Summary

Jane Austen's acclaimed comedy of manners contains a truly memorable cast of characters, including the snobbish Mrs Ferrers, impetuous Marianne, selfish John Dashwood, and his awful, grasping wife. Annette Crosbie captures all the wit and charm of the romance in this BBC Radio 4 Woman's Hour reading.

Misleading description!

Not everything labelled 'BBC' is a guarantee of quality it seems. I'm afraid I was taken in by the word 'dramatised' - it is anything BUT! Miss Austen's delightful characters are reduced to colourless images, hardly distinguishable one from the other, in Annette Crosbie's lacklustre narration. After 4 attempts I noted I had dozed off at exactly the same point each time! Soporific, but hardly what I look for in a good read, or rather, listen!
