Pride and Prejudice (version 3)


Read by Karen Savage

(4.8 stars; 6119 reviews)

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) (10 hr 23 min)

Amazing Book, Amazing Reader


(4.5 stars)

Pride and Prejudice is of course a classic, a pioneer is showing that gentlewomen's drawing room affairs could be the plot of the novel.. the very vehicle hitherto only used to define the future of nations, or to navigate the dangerous ups and downs of gothic-romantic sentimentalism. The purpose of my review is to fully appreciate the reading of Ms. Savage. It truly brought the story to life.

Deserved classic of English Literature.


(5 stars)

Karen Savage aces Jane Austin's classic of English literature. I enjoy these period books for the insights on society of that time. Shadows of that superiority heirachy are still cast into the 21st century. Austin's command of English language is enormous. Great read. Her observation, presence and poise is perfect. Thank you.

Excellently done


(5 stars)

I had first given up the book format as it was hard to follow, but after listening to the audiobook, I have such a newfound respect for Pride and Prejudice, that I will endeavour to give the book format another try. It is a truth universally acknowledged that a reader in possession of a Jane Austen work must be in want of more Jane Austen works. ❤️

Amazed and Astonished


(5 stars)

This was the first audiobook i had ever listened to and Karen Savage ruined all other readers for me from the very beginning. This is the I-don't-even-know-th time I have listened to it and it delights every time without fail. My love for this story is only amplified by Karen's beautiful reading and I will be listening again and again throughout the forseeable future.

eternal love


(5 stars)

P&P is one of my all time favorites, and this was my first time with it in English. Karen Savage is one of the best readers I've come across so far. This was a real gem. <3

Classic story brilliantly read


(5 stars)

Karen Savage really brings the text to life well. There's just the right amount of immersion and character voices for my tastes, too, nothing over-the-top but the characters' essence comes through wonderfully.
