Persuasion (version 2)

Gelesen von Elizabeth Klett

(4,765 Sterne; 653 Bewertungen)

Eight years ago, Anne Elliot fell in love with a poor but ambitious young naval officer, Frederick Wentworth. The Elliots were dissatisfied with Anne's choice, feeling he was not distinguished enough for their family, and her older friend and mentor, Lady Russell, acting in place of Anne's deceased mother, persuaded her to break off the match. Now 27 and considered a spinster, Anne re-encounters her former fiance, now a captain, as he courts her spirited young neighbour, Louisa Musgrove. The self-interested machinations of Anne's older sister Elizabeth, of Elizabeth's friend Mrs. Clay, and of Anne's father's heir, William Elliot, constitute an important subplot. (Summary from Wikipedia).

Excellent reading of my favorite Austen novel

(5 Sterne)

Elizabeth Klett delivers another outstanding performance and brings this exquisite novel to life. Between Karen Savage and Elizabeth Klett, Librivox has two of the best Austen readers in the English speaking world!

Perfect

(5 Sterne)

As I began listening, I thought, "Oh no, Jane Austen read by an American?" But Elizabeth Klett's reading is perfect. Beside her flawless accent and enunciation, her characterization is the best I've heard in any recording. She does not try to come off as a woman of amazingly varied voices, but reads each character simply and convincingly. One has no trouble recognizing characters of the opposite sex, for instance, even though she does not try to alter her voice.

Excellent, well read

(5 Sterne)

I had some concerns about my favourite Author being read by an American, but Elizabeth Klett must be applauded for such a beautiful reading of Persuasion.

hard to get in to, but good

(3 Sterne)

the book is slow starting, everyday i was thinking that i would give it up and choose another book. i got all the way to chapter 12 before it got my interest! but from chapter 12 on it moved faster and with more interesting events, but then the end happened and its like the writer just tied things up in one paragraph and stopped writing?? yes its a satisfying ending, but lacks detail and story. not one of the authors best works, but it is okay to listen to.

Highest quality reading

(5 Sterne)

Wow! A professional quality reading of this wonderful novel that kept me company on a long drive down the M6. The reader, Elizabeth Klett, enunciates beautifully and her English accents are just about perfect. Sound quality is also outstanding. One of the best VibriVox recordings to date.
