Reviews

get story well read

(5 stars)

Persuasion is, without a doubt, my favorite of Jane Austen's works. And Ms Savage does a wonderful job reading it. As she always does. A pleasant and even toned voice. She always does a great job representing individual characters perfectly. Never over done or ridiculous, nor under done like some I've heard who can leave the listener confused as to who saying/said what. She's a pleasure to listen to. And one of my favorite go-to narrators. Bravo! and Thank you, Ms Savage, for reading Persuasion. And doing it so very well.

Great although not as good as Pride and Prejudice

(5 stars)

quite a good book an okay story but Pride and Prejudice or North hanger alley or Emma are better contrived because they have more storyline and more activity and so forth and this is a lot of thought-provoking prose mixed with some storyline that is rather slow to evolve

excellent version

(5 stars)

I have listen to Karen Savage's rendition of one of my favorite stories at least twice now and I give it an unqualified recommendation! Her clear, elegant, unobtrusive reading couples brilliantly with Austen's insightful treatise on the natures of men and women. I will return to this recording again and again.

Very Enjoyable

(5 stars)

I am a big fan of Jane Austen. so obviously I enjoyed the story. But I especially enjoy this reader. She is my favorite reader so far on this site. I like the different voices she uses for the characters. They distinguish the characters without being overdone.

A Favourite!

(5 stars)

Every 4-5 years I reread or listen to Jane Austens books. This version by Karen Savage is my goto when listening. New generation of family members, interested in JA books, have been introduced to this librovox version and have all enjoyed KS narration of this story.

Loved It

(5 stars)

What a wonderful story Persuasion is! My favorite Jane Austen book! I had to listen to it again after participating in the Jane Austen Festival in Louisville this year. The festival was "200 years of piercing souls". Karen Savage is in my top 4 readers.

Great book, great reading

(5 stars)

I love Jane Austen and her books and I have to read or let them.be read to me frequently. Karen Savage has a really nice way of doing so. She has a gentle voice and reads with a lot of heart.

Love it!

(4 stars)

Although it seems to be narrated rather fast at times, I think this recording does justice to Persuasion. The book itself is, of course, another masterpiece from Jane Austen. The production quality isn’t amazing, but who can argue with free?
