Performance Needs Editing!

Would you try another book from Jane Austen and/or Jane Leclercq?

I love Jane Austen and have listened to others that were very good. Jane Leclercq is ok, definitely not my favorite.

How could the performance have been better?

There are so very many mistakes here it ruined the listening experience. The amount of line re-readings alone makes this a terrible performance. It is not the narrators fault these weren't edited out, but I wish I would have purchased a more expensive version so I could have actually enjoyed it.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Emma?

None.

Any additional comments?

The narrator uses exactly the same voice for every character. Even though I have read this book many times, it made it difficult to follow.

Excellent Audible Version

This is an excellent audible reading of Emma, however in some instances it wasn't edited and the same phrase is repeated several times. The narrator is easy to listen to and I enjoyed this book.

lovely story ruined by narration

poor story and highly annoying narration

maybe this story was good and had an interesting plot for it's day. most TV soap episodes nowadays are better than this (and I'm no fan). I'm aware this book is a classic, but just being old should not be enough to be highly regarded. in this case it seems that's just what happened.

A good story but the narrator is not so good

Any additional comments?

I've read Emma many time and watched several different versions, but I just couldn't stick to this audio version, the narrator just didn't capture my attention and I found her a little annoying to listen to
