Reviews

Flawlessly Narrated

(4 stars)

The story is a bit slow in the beginning but as the plot develops, it is sure to grab your attention for good. Elizabeth Klett has done a fantastic job, as per usual.

wonderfully read

(5 stars)

The lady who read this was excellent. I cannot commend her articulation and passion for the piece enough. She changed her tone subtly as each character spoke and not once did she over act or over empathize a line. Excellent.

The cult of sensibility examined

(4 stars)

Beautifully read, Austen's first novel is less even in its appeal than her later work but nonetheless an interesting and often sparkling tale. Austen's tone in the early part is more severe and a bit off-putting, so I enjoyed the novel more as it progressed and developed the nuance familiar in her subsequent writing. Overall, however, it's a fascinating insight into how the cult of sensibility was gripping society at the time.

Sense and Sensibility

(5 stars)

I never tire of listening to Ms. Klett as she grasps and relays the tone, virtue and nature of the characters of this book and others. Her choice of Librivox books and her gift of reading are both timeless and fulfilling.

very nicely done

(5 stars)

I really enjoyed this reading. It is clear and flows nicely for a text that can sometimes be drab. The reader does a great job bringing the story to life.

missing chapters

(2.5 stars)

I absolutely love the reader, but numerous chapters were only seconds long. If I hadn't read the book, I wouldn't have had a clue what was going on. Please fix those chapters that cut off too soon. Once that happens, it'll be 5 stars.

Amazing reading!

(5 stars)

Wow, Elizabeth Klett's reading really brings Austen's biting critique and humor to light. Listening, I hear so much of the irony and sarcasm that I miss reading silently to myself. Another great job Elizabeth! Thanks for your dedication!

Excellent Narration...

(5 stars)
