Pride and Prejudice (version 3)

Gelesen von Karen Savage

(4,838 Sterne; 5912 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) (10 hr 23 min)

Karen Savage is the BEST

(5 Sterne)

I love this book. I couldn't be happier with Karen's narration. The reviews are no exaggeration.

a masterpiece

(5 Sterne)

this is one of those books that only betters the more we read it! and Karen Savage is between my favorite readers here at Librivox. her work is always supremely well done. she brings the characters to life

Amazing Book, Amazing Reader

(4,5 Sterne)

Pride and Prejudice is of course a classic, a pioneer is showing that gentlewomen's drawing room affairs could be the plot of the novel.. the very vehicle hitherto only used to define the future of nations, or to navigate the dangerous ups and downs of gothic-romantic sentimentalism. The purpose of my review is to fully appreciate the reading of Ms. Savage. It truly brought the story to life.

Deserved classic of English Literature.

(5 Sterne)

Karen Savage aces Jane Austin's classic of English literature. I enjoy these period books for the insights on society of that time. Shadows of that superiority heirachy are still cast into the 21st century. Austin's command of English language is enormous. Great read. Her observation, presence and poise is perfect. Thank you.

Master Reader

(5 Sterne)

The perfect pairing of reader and my favorite book. Ms. Savage renders the perfect nuances of characters and inflections that bring this satisfying work to life. I never get tired of listening to the delicious turn of phrase and each time find some new description or allusion that I had not noticed before. Truly a master work of fiction read by a very talented reader.

(4 Sterne)

Well read. Clearly understandable. I would have preferred the reader to use different voices for the characters, making it easier to distinguish among them. The narrator's part could be rather plain, while the voices of the characters could be a bit more animated, and differing from one-another. Some readers do this, and it makes for a richer experience, provided they don't over-do it.

(5 Sterne)

It was a pleasure to listen to this book especially with the LibriVox reader Karen Savage. I don’t think you could ever read this classic enough but listening to Karen read it made it seem as if it was the first time you were reading it.

eternal love

(5 Sterne)

P&P is one of my all time favorites, and this was my first time with it in English. Karen Savage is one of the best readers I've come across so far. This was a real gem. <3
