Reviews

A Very Good Reading

(4.5 stars)

Far be it from me to review a Jane Austen book. I am just going to say that Ms. Savage's reading is very much to my taste. She doesn't try to prove her acting ability: she simply creates enough differentiation amongst the characters so that we can tell who is who. I am sure I will listen to this version again. Thank you for your reading, Ms. Savage.

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.

Fantastic reader, boring material

(2 stars)

I love Karen Savage’s voice and reading ability. I have listened to many of her audiobooks and always found them quality recordings that are easy to follow. However, Persuasion is one of the least engaging books I have listened to in a long while. I simply could not get in to it and stay with the story. Sorry Jane Austen, but this wasn’t your best.

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 reading

(4 stars)

A bit more melancholic in tone than other Austen's book, especially at the beginning, still Karen is able to give life to it as well as other more light-hearted stories. I'd love to see a reading of Emma and Northager Abbey by her, which would both agree very well with her upbeat way of reading.

Persuasion

(2.5 stars)

Jane Austen is a wonderful writer however this book was extremely boring even though the reader is excellent it dragged on and was very dull in an exciting! the book is very predictable, you are able to know exactly what the ending will be by chapter 1 or 2. I do not suggest this book

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.
