Reviews


(4 stars)

Beautiful reading! This is also a great book with lots of rich characters. I'm amazed at home well Jane Austen is able to bring her people to life. This story is no different. Eveyone is so true to life. And I agree with the other comments that the movie doesn't even begin to do the book justice.

Amazing reader!


(5 stars)

I absolutely love all of Karen Savage’s work. Her intonation, reading speed, accent and audio quality are all superb, which makes a book so much more enjoyable. I will definitely be listening to more of her work!

Lovely reader!


(5 stars)

Thank you for doing this. Such a great reader!

A New Favorite


(5 stars)

I love all things Jane Austen, and this was my first time reading Sense and Sensibility. I absolutely adore it! What a lovely story. It’s the type that makes you alternately laugh or cry. It dealt with slightly heavier subjects than some other Austen works, and at times was quite sad, but Jane manages to keep optimism and wry humor throughout the book. As always, Karen Savage is phenomenal. She does such an excellent job with dialogue that I felt like I was watching a movie. Entirely worth the five stars, and more!

Another fantastic Karen Savage narration


(5 stars)

I won't long extol the virtues of Jane Austen's classic novel. Austen is a master at understanding people and this book is no different. Sense and Sensibility is oft noted as her most "balanced" work and I would agree. Now on to the narrator. Karen Savage is by far our favorite LibriVox narrator! So much so that we prefer her work over those of the paid services. Another success! Thank you!

Narrator is really the best


(5 stars)

Karen Savage is for me one of the best narrators of librivox. I loved her perfection in interpreting the different characters with different voices. I loved the novel, in particular in its second part, where dialogues are more frequent and the story starts to take more action. I found in this novel some kind of a modern vision by Jane austen, I really appreciated it.

a great listen


(4.5 stars)

a really well read and acted reading of Sense and Sensibility. when i first read this years ago i wasn't really in love with the characters, but listening to Savage gives them an endearing quality that i somehow didn't find with the books. i really enjoyed listening to this, and it kept me company as i sewed. so (pun intended) thanks!

Lovely narration


(4.5 stars)

Karen Savage has done a fabulous job with this narration! While the novel itself gets 4 stars from me, I simply must add another half star to my rating of this audiobook version because the narrator has improved my enjoyment of the text tremendously.
