Description

"Pride and Prejudice" is a novel by Jane Austen, first published in 1813. The story follows the main character Elizabeth Bennet as she deals with issues of manners, upbringing, morality, education, and marriage in the society of the landed gentry of early 19th century England.

Elizabeth is the second of five daughters of a country gentleman living near the fictional town of Meryton in Hertfordshire, near London.

Though the story is set at the turn of the 19th century, it retains a fascination for modern readers, continuing near the top of lists of "most loved books" such as "The Big Read". It has become one of the most popular novels in English literature and receives considerable attention from literary scholars.

Modern interest in the book has resulted in a number of dramatic adaptations and an abundance of novels and stories imitating Austen's memorable characters or themes.

To date, the book has sold some 20 million copies worldwide.

Lecture trop rapide

Lu trop rapidement, le plaisir des mots de Jane Austen est diminué. Tout le monde connaît l’histoire et le plaisir supplémentaire de l’écouter vient justement du style qui lui est propre

Unnecessary repetition of book name and author between each chapter

Between every chapter the narrator reads the book name, author, and chapter. This occurs for all 61 chapters and seems a bit unnecessary. While I appreciate knowing which chapter is about to be covered, there is really no need in hearing the book name and author so many times. Other than that, the book and performance was very good.

Excellent story & performance!

4 stars because: There are 50+ chapters. At the end of each chapter; reader says, "End of chapter _____." Then the beginning of EACH next chapter, the reader announces the name of the book, the author, and next chapter. Got on my nerves.

Strange errors in narration, though entertaining

I won’t repeat the justified complaints about the narrator’s tediously announcing the name of the book and author again before each chapter. And I will compliment her use of characters’ voices, though I found the use of an American accent during the general narration a bit jarring in such a classic English novel. But the real disappointment was the author’s not accurately following the text. I listened to this while reading along with a first edition. Sometimes only minor words were dropped, but at other times words were reversed in order—-once or twice changing the emphasis. Worse was the occasional complete miss, such as “her friend” for “his friend”—entirely changing the reference of the sentence. There were unfortunately more than one of these substantive errors.

Great book, good narrator

The book is a classic, and wonderful. I enjoyed a lot remember the story of Elizabeth and Darcy. The only problem of this audiobook, in my opinion, is the fact on the end of each chapter, the narrator announced the end of the chapter, and at the beginning of the next, announced the title of book ... this is a little annoying, because you know what book you're listening to, don’t you? But the book is great, a classic.

Dumb chapter breaks!

This is a great story and a great performance. The narrator captures the the language and characters very well.

But, the dumb chapter breaks are super distracting. They are way too long. Worse though is that at every chapter it repeats the book title and the author in addition to stating the end of chapter x and the beginning of chapter y. Complexly breaks the flow of the story.
