A good listen

Except for some overlong pauses between chapters, I thoroughly enjoyed the quality of Susannah Harker's reading and interpretation of the characters. I remember her from the 1995 production of Pride & Prejudice and enjoyed her performance then.

Excellent narration

I chose this version after listening to the audio samples of the many unabridged versions of Sense and Sensibility that Audible offers. I just finished listening to it and I am impressed. Susannah Harker does a fantastic job narrating and the audio quality is excellent as well. If you've only seen the Sense and Sensibility movies, then you need to read the book. The ending is much more fulfilling (as is the entire book) and Jane Austen's writing is full of wit, irony and genius.

You can find a review of the actual book in many places so I won't waste time. I highly recommend this audiobook version though.

Does it get any better than this ?

Although I had read the book many years ago, I bought this audiobook while undergoing chemotherapy. Good choice !! There is nothing more relaxing than listening to the soothing voice of the narrator reading a well-written romance, a classic love story of redemption and the triumph of true love. Romance will never get any better than this.

Susannah Harker was amazing...

I listened to the audiobook version of Sense and Sensibility read by Susannah Harker and it was possibly the best audiobook I have ever heard! Yes better than Jim Dale reading Harry Potter (which I also really enjoyed)! If you get a chance to pick up this audiobook version, you should. She is very good at making each character unique and keeping you engaged the whole book. It is unabridged so 14 hours long but well worth it.

Graceful, if at times FAST, reading

Susannah Harker performs a gentle but spirited performance; does justice to the voices of the characters by making no one sound ridiculous (or more than they should, anyway!). I exchanged for this version after trying the Juliet Stevenson. I love Stevenson, but she sounded overly heavyhanded in that recording. Harker is extremely even keeled, yet manages to emote quite a lot, especially Lucy Steel's wonderful spite.

My only criticism is that the producers must have sped up some exchanges of dialogue. I doubt it was Harker, because I can't imagine someone reading so fast without needing to draw breath. I imagine compressing the recording time saved money, but it's too bad that about 1 in 4 exchanges go by very, very quickly.

Loved it!

As is almost always the case, the book is better than the movie. I appreciated the insight into the characters more deeply by listening to the audio book.

Very pleasant.

A wonderful enjoyable listen. Susannah Harker is a narrator to whom it is eady to listen. One thing I wpuld wish would be to have her read the characters in different voices.

Good reader

While Sense and Sensibility might not be quite as entertaining as Pride and Prejudice, it's still a good listen.

Superb Jane Austen

This is my favorite Jane Austen novel. I remember Susannah Harker as Jane in the 1995 BBC adaptation of P&P. She was perfectly cast as Jane and it turns out she is well suited for reading Austen aloud. Her voice is soothing, clear and strong. She is able to bring clarity and understanding to Austen’s lyrical and complex sentences. Her character voices are distinctive enough to be pleasurable and easy to follow without being jarring or exaggerated. I will listen to this again and again whenever I desire the comfort and delight of my favorite Austen novel.
