Pride and Prejudice (version 3)

Gelesen von Karen Savage

(4,8 Sterne; 2169 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)

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!

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.

(5 Sterne)

I really enjoyed this version of P&P. Karen savage is an excellent reader. I'm grateful for her and Elizabeth Klet. Both are great narrators. This is a must listen to version

Elisabeths story

(5 Sterne)

A really good book read by a wonderful voice, she really captured Elisabeths story of events; and the other characters as well. I will listen again in a few months time.

Fantastic resding

(5 Sterne)

Karen Savage is probably my second favorite reader and she does a phenomenal job on this. The story is actually pretty good too, flows quickly, and has some humor to it. I can't stand Mrs. Bennett though, reminds me too much of someone in my real life. Very realistic when compared though. But again, great read and story

Wonderful!

(5 Sterne)

I have already loved this book for some time and also am fond of the movies and series that have come of it. I had initially found this audiobook on YouTube while I was laid up and desirous to read it, though too tired to keep my eyes open so long. I'm so grateful that there is an app! Karen Savage is one of my favourite readers. I also listened to her reading of Sense and Sensibility. I love her variance of the characters without taking it too far. I believe this has been my third listen of this audiobook and I love it all the more!

excellent novel, very good reading

(4 Sterne)

I had begun listening to an audio book of Pride and Prejudice read by a professional actress of some regard but couldn't make it through even one chapter. Karen Savage's reading for Librivox is very well done, and I looked forward to those times when I could listen to "my book."
