Sense and Sensibility, Jane Austen's first published novel, focuses on the lives and loves of two sisters, Elinor and Marianne Dashwood. The sensible Elinor and the sensitive Marianne both fall for men whose affections are otherwise engaged.

Sense and Sensibility

(5 Sterne)

I never tire of listening to Ms. Klett as she grasps and relays the tone, virtue and nature of the characters of this book and others. Her choice of Librivox books and her gift of reading are both timeless and fulfilling.

The cult of sensibility examined

(4 Sterne)

Beautifully read, Austen's first novel is less even in its appeal than her later work but nonetheless an interesting and often sparkling tale. Austen's tone in the early part is more severe and a bit off-putting, so I enjoyed the novel more as it progressed and developed the nuance familiar in her subsequent writing. Overall, however, it's a fascinating insight into how the cult of sensibility was gripping society at the time.

Truly enjoyable rendition

(5 Sterne)

Even though I had seen every film version of this book, I had not actually read it. When I found this site and this title, I decided to listen to the book instead of reading it. And I am so happy I did!! Jane Austen's actual wording and phrasing made me appreciate the story even more than I expected. Also, the narration by Elizabeth Klett was spot on, and each character was easily distinguishable. I think it enhanced my enjoyment much more than if I had read it and tried to imagine the different voices in my head.

Great Reader & Great Novel

(5 Sterne)

Although the story starts out at a rather slow pace it becomes addictive after the first few chapters. I found myself truly struggling to keep going at first, but I am so happy I pushed forward because it only got drastically better. So stick with it!! The reader, Elizabeth Klett, is amazing and reads the novel with both emotion and eloquence. I have listened to her read a few books now and love how she reads. Definitely look her up! Overall, if you have enjoyed other Jane Austen novels, you will certainly enjoy Sense and Sensibility.

Brilliant and entertaining classic!

(5 Sterne)

Jane Austen is as witty as ever! The characters are so realistic and relevant even to today's crowd. No matter what time you live in, human nature is the same at its core. Elizabeth Klett does such an excellent job narrating, as she does with every book, you can distinguish every character from each other.

Wow!

(5 Sterne)

The reading was fantastic, and the book marvelous. I fell in love with the characters and story, and I cried with Maryanne when she suffered. I feel like I am most like Maryann, and felt her joys and suffering keenly. I will most assuredly and assiduously devour all that Jane Austen has put pen to. :)

well done and consistent reading

(5 Sterne)

Well done. No over-the-top voices or animation. Just well-paced, clear characterization. Elizabeth Klett is an excellent reader with a steady pace and clear diction. No technical flaws such as volume changes mar this reading and there are no mouth noises or breath noises to distract. Well done Ms. Klett and thank you.

Flawlessly Naraated

(4 Sterne)

The story is a bit slow in the beginning but as the plot develops, it is sure to grab your attention for good. 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.
