Pride and Prejudice (version 4)


Read by Elizabeth Klett

(3.5 stars; 688 reviews)

Pride and Prejudice is Jane Austen's classic comic romance, in which the five Bennett sisters try to find that most elusive creature: a single man in possession of a large fortune. Sparks fly when sweet, pretty Jane meets their new neighbor, Mr. Bingley, but her sister Elizabeth is most offended by his haughty friend, Mr. Darcy. This is Austen at the height of her powers: the ironic narration, hilariously drawn supporting characters, and romantic suspense make this her most enduringly popular novel.

Reviews

Classic brought to life by Elizabeth Klett

(5 stars)

Miss Austen's incredible wit is brought to life by the articulate, lively reading of Elizabeth Klett. Klett employs both British and American accents with seamless style, making it particularly easy to follow the dialogue (which can be difficult in an audio book).

Best Recording of P&P Available

(5 stars)

I have bought audiobooks of Pride and Prejudice and other Austen books, but none of them can hold a candle to Klett's recordings. She perfectly conveys the emotions of the characters, keeps the story lively and entertaining, and-perhaps most uniquely compared to other versions-is absolutely hilarious when the text calls for it. Brilliant, would absolutely recommend above all other audiobook recordings of Pride and Prejudice.

wonderful Book wonderful narrator

(5 stars)

This is one of my favorite all-time box Jane Austen is awesome writer. But I must say that Elisabeth klett really brings life to the characters with her narration. As she does with every book she narrates.

Very well read

(4.5 stars)

I think this would have to be my favorite reading of pride and prejudice on LibriVox. The pacing and accents are well done, the only thing I would say is that some words are pronounced quite differently than I'm used to hearing, and it threw me off a few times, but not at all a hindrance in listening to this excellent reading.

I never get tired of hearing this!

(5 stars)

This is my absolute favorite! I recommend it to all of my friends who love Jane Austen and even those who didn't before definitely love Jane after listening to this amazing recording by Elizabeth Klett!

Beautifully Read, wonderful story

(5 stars)

The reader's cadence and pronunciation is wonderful, and she reads the the various characters so accurately and so in keeping with the author's characterization of each. This is one of the very best Librivox readers and I look forward to many pleasant hours of hearing other stories read by this lady. And, what a wonderful, engaging and charming love story by a talented author! Well done!

(4.5 stars)

i have owned a hard copy of this book for many years but was never able to finish it until i read it in companion with this recording. an excellent job by the narrator, particularly portraying the nuances of dialogue from that period.

My new favorite - this piece and the reader

(5 stars)

One cannot say too much of the reader's talent and care. She narrates with an American accent yet, to my ear, nails the dialog with perfect expression, tempo, and accent. What say you, BE natives? Given that talent, why her decision to narrator in AE? Not sure but it works for me either way. It certainly does help us quickly distinguish (as could a reader of the book itself) when the piece is changing from narration to dialog. I like to think our reader had this effect in mind. One suggestion, if I may. The microphone was not properly protected by a “pop screen”. I encourage all readers to use such a device between the reader and the microphone. It reduces sibilant sounds made through speaking words with 's' and 'ch', as is the case here. It is not so annoying here as with many other readings but it is a bit detrimental to so wonderful a rendition.
