Poor narration

I love Austen's books. However, I could not finish this version of Persuasion. Mary Sarah is an unfortunate choice of narrator. I'm not certain whether this is her natural accent, it seems odd. I found it jarring, in places her intonation was incorrect and I could not concentrate on the story.

Loved the book,hated the narrator.

I've listened to this book within 2 months from a different narrator and can tell you that this narrator does this book no justice.

Really BAD narration

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

The book may very well be good, and I expect that it will be since it is Jane Austen, but the narration was so bad I couldn't finish it. I have downloaded another version to listen to.

What didn’t you like about Mary Sarah’s performance?

Everything. There wasn't anything I did like about her reading. The accent, the tone, the line delivery, where she did and did not place emphasis. I gave up.

Any additional comments?

I got this version because it was extremely marked down. I can deal with some flaws, a little skip or a repeat and even mediocre narration. But this version wasn't even worth the marked down price.

terrible narration

This narration is just unbearable. I have never heard a narration as bad as this.

Awkward reading, fantastic story

Her reading is awkward and the pronunciation of several repeated words hilariously ridiculous. I laughed happily and heartily every time she read the word “obliged” along with a few others, however, and it was definitely worth the 50 cents.

Austin, lovely. Narration not so much.

I love this story. The narrator seems to be attempting an English accent. Distracting pronunciation.

Pick a version with a better narrator

Persuasion is a great book. It is a wonderful story with great characters.

The narrator pretty much managed to destroy that. Her reading was so clipped and sing-song that it was painful listening. I did listen to the sample and it didn't seem so very bad, but when you actually tuck in to listen, it is dreadful.

I do highly recommend the book...just pick one with a good narrator.

Not my favorite

I love almost everything Jane Austen but I have tried and failed many times to like this book. The characters just never come to life for me as they do in other books. I found the reading a little annoying. Too often the reader voices the characters words in ways that sound silly and frivolous. I think JA did not suffer fools gladly and enjoyed mocking the whims and weaknesses of people, but I don’t think that every line in this book spoken by anyone other than the 2 main characters was necessarily meant to sound sound shallow. Even people of only average intelligence can have serious thoughts. And (I know this is unreasonable pickiness on my part) but I went absolutely crazy every time the reader said the word “obliged” - which she pronounced “ah-blahjd”.

You get what you pay for

What would have made Persuasion better?

Is this an English accent??? Not sure.. Strange.

What did you like best about this story?

Story of course is timeless

Any additional comments?

The narration is stilted. She doesn't capture the sense of the sentences.... the breaks are wrong. The sense is wrong.....

Enjoyed.

I'm not fond of this narrator. She doesn't imply the meaning of sentences with her inflection and pitch correctly. Making the story more boring than it should be. Having to listen to sister Mary's whining almost made it me quit reading the book. The story is well enough but the ending is too abrupt and I would have liked more Anne and Mr Wentworth and less of everything else.

Das Original

Persuasion ist nicht die spektakulärste Geschichte von Jane Austen, aber sie versammelt viele typische Elemente der Autorin, nämlich vor allem die Schwierigkeit, gesellschaftliche Erfordernisse mit Gefühlsdingen in Einklang zu bringen. Die Heldin Anne Elliott ist zudem eher durchschnittlich im Gegensatz zu den Hauptfiguren aus Stolz und Vorurteil oder Emma. Aber gerade das macht den Roman zu einer Geschichte, die einem näher geht als andere. Die Sprecherin bringt den Text aus meiner Sicht genauso authentisch und unprätentiös rüber, wie dieser Roman und die Autorin, zumindest in meiner Vorstellung, es verlangen. Für mich war dies das erste Hörbuch und die erste englische Version eines Jane Austen Romans, die ich alle schon mehrfach auf Deutsch gelesen habe. Ich bin sehr angetan und werde sicher noch weitere Versuche in dieser Richtung unternehmen.
