Pride and Prejudice (version 3)

Gelesen von Karen Savage

(4,8 Sterne; 3075 Bewertungen)

Pride and Prejudice is the most famous of Jane Austen’s novels, and its opening is one of the most famous lines in English literature - “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife.” Its manuscript was first written between 1796 and 1797, and was initially called First Impressions, but was never published under that title. Following revisions it was published on 28 January 1813 by the same Mr. Egerton of the Military Library, Whitehall, who had brought out Sense and Sensibility. Like both its predecessor and Northanger Abbey, it was written at Steventon Rectory. (Summary from Wikipedia)

Quite well read.

(5 Sterne)

I would not have enjoyed this book as much if anyone else were the narrator. The excellent reading made all the difference between 4 stars and 5; I plan on finding more pieces read by same narrator. The book itself is typical Austen; solid characters and good flow. Not brief but quite enjoyable.

Enchanting!

(5 Sterne)

Anyone who says old books are boring or stuffy hasn't read Pride and Prejudice. Jane Austen has a bewitching command of words; she deserves her reputation. The story is at the same time witty and serious, highly amusing and beautifully romantic. Such a wonderful story with unexpected turns, very compelling characters (I would like the eldest Bennetts as sisters, and my very own Darcy, please!), and valuable lessons. Karen Savage, as the reader, does the story complete justice, giving depth and emotion, and every character their distinct voice, which at times was quite comical. I cannot describe my full appreciation for this novel; I adored every minute.

(4 Sterne)

This book, and the story kept my attention much better than I anticipated going in. I also would like to give a lot of credit to the British woman who read the book, as her accent lended an air of authenticity that enriched the story and gave added credibility to the characters. I completely recommend you listen to this version.

loved it!!

(5 Sterne)

I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was extremely impressed by not only the story, but the reading as well! the reader was expressive in the character's personalities and gave the story so much life! The story itself was beautifully written and well put together. A new favorite!

(3 Sterne)

Good except the "announcement" at the end of a chapter and then beginning of a chapter complete with author and reader is Excessive and annoying, especially since chapters are short. The chapter part is fine but even announcing the end of chapter one and then immediately afterward saying chapter two doesn't make sense and is unnecessary. The reader does have a nice voice otherwise..

Excellent!

(5 Sterne)

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this! Karen Savage did a marvelous job reading the story! I found myself wanting to speak with as predicted proper accent and vocabulary and I listened to each delightful chapter! I have a new appreciation for Jane Austen, and can't wait to start the next book!

Brilliant Recording, Great Book

(4 Sterne)

Firstly, I'd recognize that Karen Savage is a superb reader, and her talent made the book very enjoyable to listen to. I am thankful that she has employed them to volunteer work, and I want to make sure she is recognized for it. Regarding the book, I enjoyed it quite much, and there is clearly a reason why it is a classic. The writing is grand, and the humor and sarcasm complement the conflicts of pride and prejudice in the characters very well. What I was not a fan of, however, was the ending. Perhaps it is due to the audio nature of this format, but it seemed to end rather abruptly. Overall, it is a great book, with a wonderful reader guiding you through it.

amazing reader

(5 Sterne)

with Keren I finally managed to get through the book. the many characters had it made impossible for me to leave the printed book for a few days and pick up where I'd left it. with this recording all the characters came to life and I never lost the thread of the story! thank you Keren!
