... But not equal to actually reading the books. If you can spare the credits buying each unabridged book would be better. That said these are radio plays so not entirely comparable, the performances are excellent and the gist of each book was accurate and it was thoroughly entertaining.

Although the performances were mostly good and the casting generally appropriate, I found it hard to suffer through the scripts they were working from. I would suggest that if you are very familiar with the books, you might also react with irritation to some very spurious tampering with sequencing and dialogue (even allowing for the obvious necessity for scriptwriters to tamper in order to shorten and still retain clarify, etc). However, if you simply enjoy a well presented romance dramatisation and aren't familiar with the texts, or simply not as pedantic as I am, then you'll probably find a lot to enjoy in this set.

I have always loved Jane Austen's stories, but I never read all of her books. This was a great way to listen to her stories and stay engaged the whole time. I didn't want to stop listening and only pressed pause when I had to (like for sleeping, but I ended up staying up past midnight the first day to finish Emma). The voices were all spot on for the characters. I really enjoyed this performance a lot!

It's brillaint, except chapters 6 and 7 are identical, as are 8 and 9, so the Mansfield Park story is unlistenable. Please fix these chapters and I'll happily upgrade my rating.
