Pride and Prejudice (version 3)


Read by Karen Savage

(4.8 stars; 3046 reviews)

Pride and Prejudice is the most famous of Jane Austen’s novels, and its opening is one of the most famous lines in English literature - “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” Its manuscript was first written between 1796 and 1797, and was initially called First Impressions, but was never published under that title. Following revisions it was published on 28 January 1813 by the same Mr. Egerton of the Military Library, Whitehall, who had brought out Sense and Sensibility. Like both its predecessor and Northanger Abbey, it was written at Steventon Rectory. (Summary from Wikipedia)

Reviews

well crafted book, well read

(4.5 stars)

This book, and the story kept my attention much better than I anticipated going in. I also would like to give a lot of credit to the British woman who read the book, as her accent lended an air of authenticity that enriched the story and gave added credibility to the characters. I completely recommend you listen to this version.

Excellent

(5 stars)

My favourite Jane Austen book bought to life by the excellent reading of Karen Savage and much to some people's surprise Karen is an American not British. Her diction is superb. when she pronounces certain words : i.e enquiry, her American accent comes through. Truly a joy to listen to

I love it!

(5 stars)

There are 1-2 mispronounced words, but nothing major. I love the way Karen does subtle voices for the characters - it helps you figure out who is speaking without being too much. This audiobook is my go-to, when I need to relax, or I'm having a hard time sleeping - her voice is very pleasant. I highly recommend it!

Pride and Savage

(5 stars)

Savage has done a fantastic job with her reading of Pride and Prejudice. Her voice, cadence, and intonation brought the characters alive and an almost palpable sense of the characters ensued. i have not heard better from and recording on LibraVox. Well done! And thank you for such a wonderful experience. Michael B.

a fond for reading

(4 stars)

this story has alway inspired me I have always loved the 2005 film and can never get enough of it. in total I have listened to this book nine times an will listen to it again. the reader is clear however I feel may be rushed slightly as well as the story cutting off in sudden places her voice is admiral and pleasant to hear changing her tone to suite the characters. I especially like her mr Collins who she portrays in the well known tone and as I incision him.

Favorite So Far

(5 stars)

I am working my way through Jane Austin’s books and the only one I have left is “Sense and Sensibility.” This is hands down my favorite thus far. I loved this novel. The twists and turns, the complexity of the characters (which isn’t lacking in any of Austin’s books), the peak into historical late 1700’s Britain, the pace and discourse. I loved it all. Even though I suspect the end result by the middle of the novel usually I immensely enjoy the path to the end. The reader did an excellent job and I also enjoyed the continuity of one reader through the entire novel.

Excellently read! A credit to Ms. Austen herself.

(5 stars)

Wonderful reading. Each character was distinct from the others. Ms. Savage has done a wonderful job, and I feel really fortunate to have found this recording. I intend to eagerly hunt up the rest of her readings. :)

(5 stars)

Couldn't think of a better person to narrate this classic. Every word of praise I read turned out to be true. Ms. Savage reads at a good pace and gives each character a voice distinguishable enough and true to their virtues and vices. I had a fantastic time listening to this.
