Pride and Prejudice (version 4)


Read by Elizabeth Klett

(4.9 stars; 550 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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

(5 stars)

This book has always been a favorite of mine, I love every line of text and every syllable uttered by each and every character :) I hope everyone who listens to it will enjoy it as much as I do!!

A classic novel that takes you back to the time of the British aristocracy. it is intriguing to imagine the dynamics of marriage and the ideas of success and class back in that time.

Very well read! Thank you!

Elizabeth Klett is gifted

(5 stars)

Klett brings this already extraordinary book to life. It's the fifth or sixth time I've listened and it continues to make me happy. Bravo Elizabeth!

Absolutely Riveting

(5 stars)

Austen writes a bold character who, during a time when women were only meant for child-rearing and nothing more, is not only highly opinionated but, also, refuses to settle for anything less than what she truly deserves. The reader will almost immediately relate to Elizabeth as she fights to preserve her own and Jane's dignity at all costs. The fact that Austen wrote the father as a nurturing and encouraging pillar of support in a patriarchal society, proves that she was way beyond her time. Elizabeth Klett has done a fantastic narration with her spirited voices and accents for every character making it a wonderful read. No one does it better than Ms. Klett.
