Description

A collection of BBC radio full-cast dramatisations of Jane Austen's six major novels. Jane Austen is one of the finest writers in the English language, and this volume includes all six of her classic novels.

Mansfield Park: on a quest to find a position in society, Fanny Price goes to live with her rich aunt and uncle.

Northanger Abbey: young, naïve Catherine Morland receives an invitation to stay at the isolated Gothic mansion Northanger Abbey.

Sense and Sensibility: forced to leave their family home after their father's death, Elinor and Marianne Dashwood try to forge a new life at Barton Cottage.

Pride and Prejudice: Mrs Bennet is determined to get her five daughters married well, so when the wealthy Mr Bingley and his friend, Mr Darcy, move into the neighbourhood, her hopes are raised....

Emma: Emma Woodhouse declares she will never marry, but she is determined to find a match for her friend, Harriet.

Persuasion: eight years ago, Anne Elliot rejected a marriage proposal from a handsome but poor naval officer. Now her former love has returned....

With an all-star cast including David Tennant, Benedict Cumberbatch, Julia McKenzie, Jenny Agutter, Toby Jones, Eve Best and Juliet Stevenson, these BBC radio adaptations are full of humour, romance, love lost and love regained. Duration: approx. 14 hours 30 mins.

No introduction to each story?!?

I have been enjoying the stories which are dramatized excellently! But I have no idea which one I just listened to... there was no announcement of the title at the beginning nor at the end. Northanger Abbey is very well done (almost too much as each of the three episodes is fully detailed) but the next two have no introduction. Surely this could be amended for a more pleasurable listener experience?

Faulty download

It's brillaint, except chapters 6 and 7 are identical, as are 8 and 9, so the Mansfield Park story is unlistenable. Please fix these chapters and I'll happily upgrade my rating.

Great way to listen to Austen's works!

I have always loved Jane Austen's stories, but I never read all of her books. This was a great way to listen to her stories and stay engaged the whole time. I didn't want to stop listening and only pressed pause when I had to (like for sleeping, but I ended up staying up past midnight the first day to finish Emma). The voices were all spot on for the characters. I really enjoyed this performance a lot!

Technical issues and misleading description.

Some chapters were duplicated (technical issue). Top billed voice talent did not perform all of the stories. Not all stories had the same production value. If you already own any of these books on their own, I would not recommend purchasing this one.

Superb acting, but beware of audio idiosyncracies!

This audio collection is comprised of the six major Austen novels, abridged and performed by a full cast of exceptional professional performers, including some very famous ones. You should note that the cover art does not list "Emma" among the works performed, but it's in there. These were produced by the BBC, which might make you jump to the conclusion that the audio quality is as superior as the acting, but that would be a mistake. The audio magicians do create the illusions that the characters actually are strolling through gardens, or riding horses, or disporting themselves in ballrooms. But the audio levels are inconsistent. At one moment General Tilney is berating poor Eleanor at full volume, then before you can say "Northanger," Eleanor is apologizing to Catherine sotto voce and you can barely hear her. This sort of thing happens at various times in each of the novels. There is a lot of whispering! I listened to them seated in a fairly quiet room, and frequently had to rewind to hear soft sounds. I imagined it would be very difficult to catch all the dialog if I were listening in a car on a road trip, or walking with earbuds on a windy day. I think background noise would obliterate subtleties of production. Just thought you should know in advance.

Another thing..... the editing is not consistent in transforming these performances from radio to audiobook format. Mansfield Park is presented without attribution to (famous) actors or the writer who adapted it. A few other novels have some passing mention of the cast, while at the very end of the line, "Persuasion" has the cast listed at the beginning AND the end of each episode. This was not a big deal, just seemed sort of slapdash. I guess I would have expected more meticulous attention to detail from the BBC.

Even with the idiosyncrasies of production, these performances were totally worth it, and even though I've read all Miss Austen's novels in print and in audio, I'll cherish these versions too.

An Amazing Cast in Each Story

Who was your favorite character and why?

I think a lot of the titular characters stand out. But my real answer is everyone plays their part - Austen didn't create many one dimensional characters. And through her creations I think it created a seamless transition between book to play.

Any additional comments?

The stories are timeless and sometimes I like a good dramatisation over the actual book itself. The case is exceptional - pretty sure most having gone to drama school or come from the theater. Just feels like it could be a TV production and I'm down with that!

Perfect Intro for Newbies; Great Fun for Fans

Thanks for offering these as a complete 6-for-the-price-of-1 bundle, Audible! Now those of us determined to acquire the entire sterling collection won't have to spend six credits. This is terrific fun for established Austenites, and a delightful, fast-paced, lucid and engaging introduction to anyone unfamiliar with the canon. It will be especially eye-opening for anyone who previously found Austen either boring or distasteful after an unpleasant, premature forced exposure in a high school English class. All six mature novels are presented here (the juvenalia, including Love and Freindship [sic] is wisely omitted). For anyone UNfamiliar with Austen's work, please be aware that these plays are presented (perhaps unwisely) in ascending order of greatness/polished perfection, with the experimental, Rohrschachian Mansfield Park first (try not to judge Austen by the character of curiously bland antiheroine Fanny Price) then the satirical Northanger Abbey (note how Austen was somehow able to skewer the Bronte sisters 60 years before they were even born!), then the somewhat flawed Sense and Sensibility...ending with Austen's three crown jewels, and culminating in the razor-sharp, ultra-lean Persuasion. The star-studded BBC cast is amazing; the recording has one strange several-line repeat in the first play but that may have just been my download, and it is otherwise flawless. Your commute miles (or ironing chores, or walking miles) will fly by!

Not As Represented; Recording Problems

David Tennant and Benedict Cumberbatch were only in the first story, Mansfield Park, which was very disappointing. The Sense and Sensability recordings were scrambled across the recording set rather than being in chronological order which was really annoying, and the dialog in all of the stories was modernized to the point of being ridiculous. Mansfield Park was good and Northanger Abbey was fine, but the rest were just not that great. I ended up returning this one. If you really must have the Tennant/Cumberbatch recording, save your money and purchase the stand alone recording which is also available on Audible.

Worth it

I was a bit nervous to buy this bundle of books after reading negative reviews that said that the quality between the performances varied. However I found all 6 performances to be excellent and all thoroughly enjoyable.

Sadly, there was no Cumberbatch Darcy

I love Jane Austen and I'm a Benedict Cumberbatch fan as well so I was really excited about this series. But Cumberbatch only performs in Mansfield Park (my least favorite novel of Austen's). Overall, the acting was good and I thought that the rewrite kept the integrity of the story. Just don't get your hopes up to hear Benedict Cumberbatch as Mr. Darcy.

Excellent Dramatization

I was a bit leery about whether or not I actually wanted to purchase this due to the negative reviews being so vehement - however, I'm very much glad that I ignored them and went ahead to buy it. The voices were actually very well done (though I was disappointed in Mr. Knightly, but I'm particularly fond of him), and the only thing that I didn't like was the very dramatic crying, and the heavy breathing - but, that could be a personal annoyance. It is a dramatization, perhaps the more dramatic the better.
If you are teetering on whether or not you should buy this, then just know that you won't regret it. It might not be exactly what you expected, but it is pleasantly surprising.

Großartig! Allerdings....

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Sprecher und Geschichte alles top! Allerdings fehlte mir persönlich ein Inhaltsverzeichnis, da ich die verschiedenen Titel lieber in meiner eigenen Reihenfolge höre als in einer vorgegeben also - hilf dir selbst, hilft dir Gott - habe ich eine gute halbe Stunde damit verbracht herauszufinden und mir zu notieren wo welche Geschichte anfängt und aufhört und hab mir gedacht ich teile das mal mit euch, falls noch einer das gleiche Problem hat:

Mansfield Park: Kapitel 1-10
Northanger Abbey: Kapitel 11-13
Sense & Sensibility: Kapitel 14-15
Pride & Prejudice: Kapitel 16-18
Emma: Kapitel 19-20
Persuation: Kapitel 21-23

Danke, Nicole!

Yes, a little treasure!
Diese Sammlung hat mir sehr gut gefallen; ich kann sie weiter empfehlen. Ein schönes Klassiker-Hörvergnügen. Sehr gefällig gelesen, gut zu verstehen. Mein Lieblingsbuch bleibt "Pride & Prejudice".
Das Index-Problem hat Nicole für uns gelöst, danke dafür.

..BUT audible version comes without index. Having to try every chapter before finding the book you want to listen to takes away part of the fun and led me to giving 4 stars only.

Gut umgesetzt

Am Anfang war ich etwas skeptisch, weil ich Hörspiele oft nicht so gut in der Umsetzung finde. Ich ziehe Hörbücher meist vor. Diese jedoch sind überwiegend gut gemacht, wobei es der Personenanzahl wegen meines Erachtens von Vorteil ist, wenn man die Werke kennt und demzufolge weiß um wen oder was es geht. Interessant fand ich, dass mir durch die Hörspielfassung auch 'Emma' und 'Persuasion' gefallen haben, die ich als Buch weniger mag als die anderen Werke.

Außer Pride and Prejudice alle hervorragend!

Wie beschrieben sind alle Hörspiele sehr gut und zum Teil mehr zum Teil weniger original umgesetzt. Leider ist Pride and Prejudice sehr weit vom Original entfernt, was mir persönlich nicht gefallen hat. Bei Persuasion ist zudem die Aufnahmequalität zum Teil etwas schlecht, aber man konnte trotz leiser Aufnahmen und gelegentlichem Knacken alles recht gut verstehen. Besonders gut gefallen hat mir, dass die Sprecher namentlich genannt und ihren Rollen zugeordnet werden.

Angenehme Sprecher, gut zu verstehen

Dies ist eine Kollektion von verschiedenen Jane Austen Romanen, die für die BBC vertont wurden, mit verteilten Rollen eingesprochen. Ich fand die Sprecher sehr gut und (ohne Kenntnis der Bücher) fühlten sie sich nicht gekürzt an. Das Englisch ist gut zu verstehen, auch für nicht-Muttersprachler. Empfehlung!
