Description

Sense and Sensibility is a sharply detailed portrait of the decorum surrounding courtship and the importance of marriage for women in early 19th-century upper-class English society. The story revolves around Elinor and Marianne Dashwood who, as members of the upper class, cannot "work" for a living and must therefore make a suitable marriage to ensure their livelihood. Elinor is a sensible, rational creature, while her younger sister, Marianne, is wildly romantic - a characteristic that offers Austen plenty of scope for both satire and compassion.

Much better than the Victoria McGee version

This is much, much better than the same book narrated by Victoria McGee. If you're debating between a couple versions, you can't go wrong with this one. I actually listened part-way to the other version, couldn't take another second of the robotic narrator, and switched to this one. Marion Castle is very expressive and interesting. She has a nice cadence to her voice, which suits the story. The only reason I'm not giving her 5 stars as a narrator is because so far, no one can outshine Lindsay Duncan as a narrator for Austen. If you haven't heard Duncan's version of Pride and Prejudice, I highly recommend it, too. However, Marion Castle is very good, and I would happily download other books she narrates in the future. I've learned my lesson with my Sense and Sensibility experience. The narrator really can make or break the story, and I'll be sure to pay more attention to the samples before downloading in future.

Loved it

I've read this before, seen it many times, but listening to this was a pleasure. Characters are so good and the story is truly timeless. This was a good version with excellent narration (despite being a cheaper version).

An Enjoyable Austen Piece

While not my favorite of Austen's works, the Dashwood sisters are compelling protagonists, the supporting cast are enjoyable, and there are just enough details to give you a good picture of what life was like during the period when the story was set. What prevented this from being an outstanding performance or story for me were the musical interludes that occurred between chapters, the whole Ferras marriage plot, and some of the voices the narrator used for the male characters. However, overall it was a very easy listen, and the plot was easy enough to follow.

I absolutely love this audio book

I have listened to this particular audiobook over 50 times, no joke! I really love this production but my only criticism is that the voice actors voice can become grating a bit with some of the female voice in. Still I highly recommend this one

Classic well presented!

As good as Jane Austen can get. Jane's stories may be archaic in form and style and the social
mores of the time may be lost on a modern audience, but the reality of the unchanging human condition they illustrate make them worth exploring.

Sense and Sensibility

I have really enjoyed listening to this story read by Marion Castle. She does a great job with the narration and with the voices for the different characters. I would certainly recommend it to those who enjoy Jane Austen's novels. The reason I dropped from five stars to four is because some of the beginnings of sentences in the early part of the novel sounded glitchy. It didn't last long in the reading, but it did detract from my enjoyment at the time.

The reader is very hard to listen to.

What disappointed you about Sense and Sensibility?

I love this story, but I cannot listen to this reader

How did the narrator detract from the book?

You can only hear half of what she is saying.

Performance was so so

I love the story and listened to a couple of samples, this seemed like it would be okay, it was just that, okay.

If you haven't read the book, I'd suggest a different version. The women sounded ridiculous.
