Anne Elliott, Jane Austen's only aging heroine, has devoted her life to caring for her financially irresponsible family. Just when she is growing content with her uneventful lifestyle, a long-lost flame re-enters the picture -- now as the beau of her significantly younger cousin. Anne is now faced with a choice: will she watch Captain Wentworth settle into life with another woman, or will she strive to win back his love and escape her family? (Summary by Kirsten Ferreri)

What can I say that hasn’t been said? No reader was bad enough to make it worse than 5, though unfortunately Debra Lynn wasn’t the best…oh well. I would love more of Tina Tilney please! Any Austen fan will surely love this less known but still beloved classic and it’s the perfect introduction for someone who’s never read her works. This is my tenth time listening to it over the course of one and a half years but like previous listeners have said, “it. Never. Gets. Old. “

Many good readers...

however, I prefer one voice for a book, usually, for consistency. The exception being a dramatic reading group. Still the differences in accent, audio quality, and skill show when displayed in this fashion. But no one reading was uncomfortable to listen to. If it was the only way to have a free audiobook it was still a decent experience. It is still my favorite Austen novel, even with multiple readers.

I always prefer a British accent for reading British books (I know, snobby, right? ) but this was read, with the exception of one reader, very well. sometimes I could hear sirens or background noise, but it wasn't a big deal most of the time. Thank you for reading it for us!

I find this story to be one of my favorite Jane Austen books. It is captivating in many areas of the story. This story also could have been written for the 21st century. For people never change no matter what year or century you live in.

Great Listening

(4 Sterne)

I enjoyed being able to listen to my favorite Jane Austen novel while doing other things. I especially liked when the chapters were read by a woman with an British accent. I felt that added to the feel and mood of the book.

Dull, dull, dull. I kept waiting for it to get better, it never did. Jane Austen is known as a great writer, but, this was definitely not one of her best offerings. I did not find it the least bit entertaining.

Would give five stars if I had been able to hear all readers well. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I enjoyed the variety of reading styles as much as I did. Thank you all.

I love this book!

My favorite Austen book!!! This has multiple readers. Some were painful to listen to, and I couldn't get lost in the story when they were reading.
