Item Description...
Overview
A delightful novel about "how girls catch husbands." Listen in to find out: what will happen to sister Lydia? will the arrogant Lady Catherine de Burgh's intrigues be foiled? will sister Jane marry Mr. Bingley? and especially, will Elizabeth, cured of her prejudice, and Mr. Darcy, cured of his pride, fall into each other's arms? Listeners will also savor the wit, the sly irony and satire and comedy that Miss Austen crowds into almost every quiet, well-bred line of this novel. There is great sanity, common sense and worldly wisdom to be found in her exploration of human nature. Sir Walter Scott said, Jane Austen had "that exquisite touch which renders ordinary commonplace things and characters interesting." This quality provides today's listeners of Pride and Prejudice with a fascinating trip into the lives of the privileged in England during the eighteenth century.

More About Jane Austen & Sharon Williams

Jane Austen Jane Austen (16 December 1775 – 18 July 1817) was an English novelist whose works of romantic fiction, set among the landed gentry, earned her a place as one of the most widely read writers in English literature. Her realism, biting irony and social commentary have gained her historical importance among scholars and critics.

Austen lived her entire life as part of a close-knit family located on the lower fringes of the English landed gentry. She was educated primarily by her father and older brothers as well as through her own reading. The steadfast support of her family was critical to her development as a professional writer. Her artistic apprenticeship lasted from her teenage years into her thirties. During this period, she experimented with various literary forms, including the epistolary novel which she then abandoned, and wrote and extensively revised three major novels and began a fourth. From 1811 until 1816, with the release of Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814) and Emma (1816), she achieved success as a published writer. She wrote two additional novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion, both published posthumously in 1818, and began a third, which was eventually titled Sanditon, but died before completing it.

Austen's works critique the novels of sensibility of the second half of the 18th century and are part of the transition to 19th-century realism. Her plots, though fundamentally comic, highlight the dependence of women on marriage to secure social standing and economic security. Her work brought her little personal fame and only a few positive reviews during her lifetime, but the publication in 1869 of her nephew's A Memoir of Jane Austen introduced her to a wider public, and by the 1940s she had become widely accepted in academia as a great English writer. The second half of the 20th century saw a proliferation of Austen scholarship and the emergence of a Janeite fan culture.

Jane Austen was born in 1775 and died in 1817.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The reader's voice is a bit distracting  Mar 26, 2008
I enjoyed this audiobook overall, but found the reader's voice a bit annoying. I often found it difficult to focus on what it was that she was saying. The other thing that I did not like was how many tracts were on a CD. Each CD is divided into 100 tracks. Great if your listening to it on the CD, but a nightmare if you want to put it on your favorite MP3 player.
 
Most Romantic Story of all Time  Jun 30, 2007
This CD is wonderful. Sometimes you get a cd that you don't like the narrator on. Not in this case. It's great. It is also the second set I've bought. One of my discs from the last set cracked (under strain from small children) and I couldn't live without it. As anyone who loves Jane Austen and her "Pride and Prejudice".
 
Excellent Book  Jan 3, 2007
I enjoyed the recent movie Pride and Prejudice so much that I just had to read the book. I don't have time to actually sit down and read a novel, so I purchased the audio version. I was very pleased with it. I thought the narrator was excellent. Wonderful Book!
 
Wonderful and Addicting  Jan 2, 2007
I admit that when I first heard this story, I was confused by the fast pace. I watch the old movie before reading the book, so I knew what was going to happen. I heard it over again and enjoyed it a lot. Since then I've listened to it many many times. Though the reader is fast paced, I like her different voices for each character.

This book is about a 20-year-old woman named Eliza. She lives with her 1 older sister and 3 younger sisters and mother and father in a small village. A new arrival comes to the town. A man named Bingley. He brings his friend Mr. Darcy and his sisters Mrs. Hurst and Miss Bingley. Eliza's older sister Jane admires Mr. Bingley. But Eliza finds Mr. Darcy a very proud and rude man. She meets another man who catches her fancy.

I recommend not reading this book once or twice, but a lot. Then you can really get the feel for what Jane Austen was writing. For me it was a lot more interesting in a fast pace listening then a slow read of the book.
 
Too fast, but impossible to ruin a great story  Mar 2, 2006
This is my favorite Jane Austen novel and I have read it many times. The main flaw in this reading is that it was too hurried. There was barely a pause between chapters and the quick speech did not do justice to all of the characters. I found the reader's voice to be as little high pitched and a little mannered, even for Austen. Flaws aside, I still got enjoyment from this reading. The speed became less distracting as I became used to it and there were some fine readings of exchanges between Elizabeth and Darcy. Bottom line: not up to the standard that Pride and Prejudice deserves.
