Pride and Prejudice (version 3)


Read by Karen Savage

(4.7 stars; 1682 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)

Brought To Life

(5 stars)

I drive a lot for work and I found myself so excited to get back in the car each time, ready to dive back into the world of Pride and Prejudice. Karen Savage did an amazing job of bringing these words to life and I have a new found love for Jane Austin now because of her. Brilliant!

(4.5 stars)

Karen Savage does a wonderful job with Jane Austen's books. She is my go-to reader for them on LibriVox. A couple minor abrupt changes in the audio recording and a couple times I wish there had been a tad more energy in the reading knock it down to 4.5. Overall, it is great.

Great story well read

(5 stars)

Carriage Savage is one of my favorite readers on LibriVox. she brings the story to life with excellent spirit. I could almost see the characters come to life. I enjoy listening to any of the stories read by Karen Savage. thank you for your contribution to LibriVox.

excellent novel, very good reading

(4 stars)

I had begun listening to an audio book of Pride and Prejudice read by a professional actress of some regard but couldn't make it through even one chapter. Karen Savage's reading for Librivox is very well done, and I looked forward to those times when I could listen to "my book."

Fantastic resding

(5 stars)

Karen Savage is probably my second favorite reader and she does a phenomenal job on this. The story is actually pretty good too, flows quickly, and has some humor to it. I can't stand Mrs. Bennett though, reminds me too much of someone in my real life. Very realistic when compared though. But again, great read and story

Wonderful!

(5 stars)

I have already loved this book for some time and also am fond of the movies and series that have come of it. I had initially found this audiobook on YouTube while I was laid up and desirous to read it, though too tired to keep my eyes open so long. I'm so grateful that there is an app! Karen Savage is one of my favourite readers. I also listened to her reading of Sense and Sensibility. I love her variance of the characters without taking it too far. I believe this has been my third listen of this audiobook and I love it all the more!

(4 stars)

While this work has obviously stood the test of time to its credit, I cannot stress enough the added pleasure of Karen Savage's performance. I should think that with the advent and spread of audio books that Ms Savage could make a career of it. Food for thought Ms savage. To others, I encourage you to search directly for "Karen Savage" so that you may be further entertained by Librovox's finest volunteer.

OK, but not her best

(3 stars)

I found almost all the characters annoying at times and some were insufferable. I would rank this Austen novel behind "Emma", "Mansfield Park", and "Sense and Sensibility". I cannot for the life of me understand all the praise it gets. Karen Savage's reading deserves all the praise and more. She alone made it worth persevering to the end.
