    Description

    “…narrating the novels of Jane Austen reminded me that no matter how much the world changes, human nature never does.” (Alison Larkin)

    Ever since Colin Firth's Mr. Darcy emerged from the lake in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, the novels of Jane Austen have become more popular than ever, delighting millions of fans all over the world. Now, Alison Larkin's critically acclaimed narrations of Austen's six completed novels are brought together in this very special 200th anniversary audio edition. "Alison Larkin's narration will captivate listeners from the first sentence", raves AudioFile magazine about the Earphones Award-winning recording of Sense and Sensibility, which starts the collection. 

    Hailed by The Times as "marvelously light footed...hugely entertaining," Alison Larkin is the perfect vessel to bring the deft, satirical novels of Jane Austen to sparkling new life.

    Alison Larkin is the best-selling author of The English American, a comedienne and the award-winning narrator of over 150 audiobooks. In addition to Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice with Songs from Regency England, Mansfield Park, Persuasion & Poems, Emma and Northanger Abbey and the History of England by Jane Austen, other classic narrations include Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass; Fairytales of the Fiercer Sex by the Brothers Grimm, et al; Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest (with James Warwick); Peter Pan & the Inconsiderate Waiter; and Agatha Christie's The Secret Adversary.

    Title and end music: "The Lonely Ash Grove", sung by Alison Larkin.

    Exquisite!

    I fell in love with Alison Larkin's interpretation right away. She is by far the best voice I have ever encountered. What struck me especially, was the diversity of characters she created. Especially male ones. A real genius! I'm her fan ever since.

    Excellent rendition of Austen complete novels

    This narrator - Alison Larkin - is exquisite in her rendition of Jane Austen's unabridged novels. Audio quality is perfect and I have the sense that I pay way more attention to the phrases read by Larkin compared to my reading the same text. The narrator brings life to characters and varies her speech so that you always know who is talking and what underlying intentions exist under apparently civil and respectable words. I am really pleased with this audiobook, and recommend it to all Austen fans.

    Table of Contents/Navigation Guide!

    To get an 81 hour recording of an audiobook of this quality for under $30.00 is unprecedented. Alison Larkin is an A list narrator at the top of her game and she is perfect for Jane Austen. Here's the info I got re the navigation when I called the producers which answered all my questions.

    Audible has broken this audiobook into multiple parts to make the download faster. This automatic process sometimes divides the novels in a less than intuitive way. Therefore, we have provided the following guide to help aid you in navigating the contents of the audiobook.

    Table of Contents/Navigation Guide

    Part 1:
    Sense and Sensibility Chapters 1-38

    Part 2:
    Sense and Sensibility Chapters 39-50
    Pride and Prejudice Chapters 1-27

    Part 3:
    Pride and Prejudice Chapters 28-61
    Mansfield Park Chapters 1-5

    Part 4:
    Mansfield Park Chapters 6-45

    Part 5:
    Mansfield Park Chapters 46-48
    Emma Chapters 1-35

    Part 6:
    Emma Chapters 36-55
    Northanger Abbey Chapters 1-18

    Part 7:
    Northanger Abbey Chapters 19-31
    Persuasion Chapters 1-24

    If you are looking for the start of particular book, find the ‘Part’ it is in and look for a file that is between 7-10 seconds long. That will be the intro title for the book.

    Insane structure of excellent performance/stories

    This review is not about the stories or performance, but the unbelievably insane way they are structured. This is multiple novels supplied as multiple audio books. Seems simple enough. But no. They put part of one novel on one book, part on another, and then start a new novel in the same book. I wanted to begin with Emma, the fourth novel listed so I downloaded the fourth book. Amazingly enough, it begins with chapter 6 of Mansfield Park! As if that's not enough, all of the books have the SAME COVER! So you can't tell them apart. You've got a bunch of books on your Kindle, all looking alike, and all containing random starts and endings of different novels. They don't even have a Table of Contents that lets you see what's in what and jump to things. It's potluck. You take a stab at some book and be happy with what comes up. What genius thought up this method of distributing audio books?

    I am THRILLED to find out that someone has thought to release Alison Larkin's wonderful Jane Austen narrations in one recording!! Alison Larkin is my absolute favorite Austen narrator because she makes it all so easy to understand and absolutely gets Austen's humor. Plus her voice is just such a pleasure to listen to! What a treat!

    Sort Audio files BY BOOK!

    The organization of the audio files is ridiculous, they should've sorted by book. The story and reader are wonderful, but the file organization ruins the download. If you're going to sort the books so poorly you should provide that information in the description!

    Simpering Narrator

    I have to respectfully disagree with other reviewers in that I don't think Alison Larkin does justice to these wonderful novels. I love Austen, but I couldn't get through Larkin's simpering narration -- high pitched and oftentimes coming dangerously close to lisping. I found it annoying and a bit offended at her silly reading. The sample was misleading because in the snippet she reads the words of a silly, small-minded woman. I didn't realize that was the voice that would be used throughout. There are many reasons Austen novels are so beloved. They are thoughtful, frustrating, uplifting, complex and layered. I'd recommend a different narrator (eg, Rosamund Pike's narration of Pride and Prejudice is fantastic). The overall three stars was augmented by the value of this 6-pack.

    Horrible Narration

    I was so excited to get all of Jane Austen's novels in one audiobook. I looked at the reviews and everyone was saying how delightful Alison Larkin was. The snippet piece showed her as so too. However, after downloading the book and preparing to be entertained, I was frustrated instead. Larkin's attempts at changing her voice for different characters wasn't done well. The women voices were okay and could even be entertaining from time to time, but the men's voices all sounded the same and curt. It was had to listen to. I also did not like that the parts weren't by book or maybe two parts by book. I have favorite books that I like to listen to more than others and didn't like to guess where a book finished or started.

    Takes me to my happy place.

    This collection is pure joy for me. Alison Larkin was an inspired choice to narrate each of Miss Austen's novels. To be able to buy all of the 200th-anniversary edition novels with one credit is incredible. To have 81 hrs of humor, delight, sorrow, and calm at my command is like mother's milk for my anxiety. It's especially lovely to have to help combat the current anxiety-filled daily news briefings. Miss Austen is always a treasure to experience.

    Book does not play

    What disappointed you about The Complete Novels : Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion?

    I started reading Pride & Prejudice but the sound stops after Chapter 112 of the Complete Novels. I tried complaining to Audible but the person who responded to my Chat was unhelpful and I received no response to my further emails.
    The only book I read was Pride & Prejudice and as far as it went, the reader was fine.

    Best Buy of Best Performance of Austen

    Alison Larkin is for very good reason the American voice of the Jane Austen Society. As a Janeian of 50-years standing who has seen ALL of the film and television productions of Miss Austen’s novels, and heard almost all of the myriad recordings over many years, I can assure you that this is not only the best over-all performance but far and away the best as to interpretation, accents, pacing, and contrasting voices. Larkin is simply amazing. And what a buy!

    No singing

    I didn't care for the singing, but the stories were well read. I have always loved Jane Austen's works.

    Praise as praise can be

    ... ah, what to state that hasn't been stated before - Jane Austen is brilliant and thus still known for her art as so few others of her time and craft are.
    This collection is as wonderful as millions of readers have claimed it to be and so I won't quabble any longer.
    Read, but read and enjoy!
