Sintesi dell'editore

Jane Austen's most popular novel, originally published in 1813, some 17 years after it was first written, presents the Bennet family of Longbourn. Against the background of gossipy Mrs. Bennet and the detached Mr. Bennet, the quest is on for husbands for the five daughters. The spotlight falls on Elizabeth, second eldest, who is courted by Darcy, though initially she is more concerned with the fate of her other sisters.

Un piacere dall'inizio alla fine.

Ho letto il libro anni fa ed è un noto capolavoro, ma la lettura di Emilia Fox è deliziosa e lo rende ancora più attuale.

Pride and Prejudice

This audio book was wonderful. The voice of the reader was very easy to listen to, while still affording the ability to distiquish between characters. I listened to it on a flight to and from England and, remarkably, it made the flight enjoyable. I hope you enjoy hearing it as much as I did.

Miss Fox gives a wonderful read of this great book. I love the way she does the different voices. Her timing and inflections are wonderful.

Ah, Mr. Darcy!

There is nothing like listening to your favorite Jane Austen book! Complete with the beautiful accent, it is almost as if she is reading it herself. I hated this to end!! The story was brought to life better than any Hollywood film could have!

PURE DELIGHT

This book is my all time favorite. The dialog is stunning. The characters have become a part of my inner world, they are so real to me. It takes the ordinary theme of young men and women meeting and falling in love to a level that I simply have never encountered in any other story I've read. It is all done with brilliant and cleverly written dialog. To think that this was written by a young woman of her time is truly amazing, that is was so popular at the time is even more amazing and that it continues to be such a favorite is only well deserved.
I enjoyed this audio book very much and look forward to Part II. Although I have read this book at least a dozen times over the past four decades, it is always as delightful as it was the first time I read it.

Classics Exercise the Mind

While doing my laundry now, I listen intently to the well versed story, Pride and Prejudice. Witty, and thought provoking, it is actually said that reading and studying the classics will enhance the abilities of the mind. The book is also inspiring as the characters discuss the importance of hard work and of accomplishments; I am more inclined to further my own education from thought provoking conversations from the book. An added bonus: my friends are beginning to laugh as they hear the vocabulary of my children beginning to change since they have been listening to the classics on CD. If you are interested in beginning your own study of the classics, aside from the Bible, this is a great one to start on.

Unlistenable

I LOVE this novel! Probably my favorite of all times. HOWEVER.... sadly, Emilia Fox's reading of it is completely unlistenable. I find this surprising, as I loved her screen performances in the BBC adaptations of Pride and Prejudice (in which she played Georgiana Darcy) and Rebecca (where she reprised her mother's role as Mrs. Dewinter). Her performance in this audio is strained, over-acted, and goes from dreary to dreadful within seconds as she shifts from one character to another. The simple narrative parts are dull, and actually tend to make me zone out entirely, or drift to sleep if I'm in bed. Her reading of the character dialogue leaves me disliking every character in the novel. And as this is my favorite novel, that's quite a spectacular feat.

I got through the first 2.5 hours of listening to this, and finally gave it up as a bad job. I LOVE the version read by Nadia May (have listened to that version over and over), and wanted a new version to listen to, so bought this one, as Emilia Fox's name was one I knew from her acting. I have now bought the Irene Sutcliffe version, and am enjoying that one instead.

What can I say

that hasn't already been said. I listen to this book at least once a month. I love Jane Austen and this is my favorite of her works. It is well read and completely engrossing.

Excellent narration!

As a classic, this is an obvious must-read. I read it in school but the audiobook made the story so much more enjoyable due to the characters easy-to-understand accent and voice-impersonations. If you haven't read this in a while, definitely listen to the audio version, you will love it!

First Loves Never Die

You ever notice how your first loves stay with you forever? It's true. Love for things as well sa people, you just... always remember. Well, that's my feeling about Pride and Prejudice. It was one of my first loves.
Jane Austin is an engaging writer. The characters draw you in, and you know who they are because they are people in your life somehow.
The story gets into you somehow and it breaths it's own passion.

I'm not sure what else I can say without giving away the plot, except that I highly recommend this book to anyone with a romantic soul.

Worth listening to over and again

I have read the book but do so much traveling that I wanted to hear it read and the narrator did a superb job of each character. She kept the intent of the Author.

Best narrator ever!

Emilia Fox is once again amazing. She brings every character to live so as one can picture them exactly as Austen describes them. If you love Austen this is definatley the audio version for you as she brings an energy into it which makes even me, a not so avid fan, warm to the story. Once you listen to this listen to other books which Emilia Fox reads in particular the Agatha Christie books. Again she gives each character a life of their own and she is by far one of the best if not the best narrator in the world.

Brought to Life

As the previous reviewer states, the narrator brings this story to life. Through her skill, you are transported into world Jane Austin has created.

I came to this story more out of curiosity through its fame as a literary work but was thoroughly impressed by both the quality of the presentation and the story itself. Highly recommended!

Wonderful!

This is, for me, the definitive performance of Pride and Prejudice. What an actress Emilia Fox proves herself to be in her characterisation of the beloved and not so beloved characters within this book.

I make no comment on the book itself as, if you have seen the BBC's Classic rendition then you can make up your own mind as to whether this is for you, for they follow the story faithfully throughout.

Excellent rendition of a well known classic

It's often a disappointment when the reading of a well loved story doesn't meet expectations. This one did - Emilia Fox's reading was excellent with good characterisation. Although the unabridged version is lengthy - it was all highly enjoyable.

Fox brings Austin to life

Pride & Prejudice is one of those books I felt I ought to read but just haven't gotten around to it. When I saw there was a version narrated by Emilia Fox I decided this was the way to go, having previously enjoyed her narration of different Audible books. I am so glad I did as she brought the characters to life and has secured this book a place on my shelves (and iPhone).

Two of my favourite things, together at last.

Emilia Fox rocks! Well, not really. But she does do an absolutely stellar job of reading P&P with wonderful expression. I suppose it's not surprising, given her background and links to the much-loved BBC production of this much-loved novel. Ms Fox is also one of the few actresses who reads unabridged versions of the classics, which is also a delight. I could listen to her voice for hours, and luckily, now that is exactly what I can do.

My favourite - never disappoints!

Emilia Fox was Georgiana in the 1995 BBC adaptation, and though her voice is now more mature, it could not help but bring happy memories which enhanced the listening experience.

A classic for a reason

Where does Pride and Prejudice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

By far my most listened to audiobook but also one of my most re-read books full stop.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Mr Bennett had always been my favourite character due to his sense of humour and the way that he is described - it is possible that he reminds me a little of many that I know.

What about Emilia Fox’s performance did you like?

She bought a nice sense of brutishness to the story as would be expected and what very few accents she uses are well done and appropriate. A nice steady pace and thoughtfully executed.

A joy to read

I don't feel at all qualified to review a book which has so long been the subject of literary and academic appraisals, so I will say only how much I enjoyed the reading of it. If I could give this six stars I would without hesitation. The story gave real insight into life amongst the landed gentry at this time, the pace was perfect, the plot complex enough to keep the reader intrigued and yet tight enough that not a single line was wasted on superfluous characters or unnecessary diversions. The characters are without exception beautifully and richly developed. The language is an absolute joy to read and reminds me how poor our everyday language is now by comparison. This was simply a joy to read from cover to cover.
