i've just finished this and it's really lovely. i've tried before to read the book, but somehow i couldn't get through it but this recording is what finally got me to finish this novel. Savage is such a nicely paced and dynamic reader. she adds enough twists to each character to make them different and memorable without being overbearing, i really enjoyed this reading, so thank you for doing it. (my original review from a few months ago: only just started, but it's really good so far, nicely read, and well paced.)

Outstanding

(5 Sterne)

Jane Austen read by Karen Savage - who could ask for more? Karen's interpretation is wonderful. Her reading of Captain Wentworth's letter is superb. I also have her Pride and Prejudice down loaded in my library. The best way to enjoy Jane Austen when you're not abke to sit down with the book.

I enjoyed a brief glimpse into the times, language, mores of this time period. The insight into daily life of the upper crust and their habits are interesting even if the characters and plot are a bit predictable. The reader was excellent and I enjoyed the story as a respite from our modern world.

Excellent reading. Karen Savage is skilled and well paced, and her wonderful performance allowed me to get lost in the story. Thank you to Ms Savage!

A Favourite!

(5 Sterne)

Every 4-5 years I reread or listen to Jane Austens books. This version by Karen Savage is my goto when listening. New generation of family members, interested in JA books, have been introduced to this librovox version and have all enjoyed KS narration of this story.

Superb!

(5 Sterne)

After seeing a movie adaptation of this novel, I wanted to hear the real thing and Ms. Savage delivered. Her reading of the text kept my interest and her rendering of the different characters was outstanding. Another triumph for Librivox!

(5 Sterne)

In the first few minutes the reading feels almost rushed, but as it continues Savage slows down a bit which I appreciate. She is particularly good giving the different characters their own voices. I especially enjoyed her rendition of Anne's father.

Wonderful reader

(4 Sterne)

Not one of Austen's best novels, yet still full of interesting observations about human frailty and strength, vice and virtue - with people of fine character finding one another again and at last.
