I am a manly man. I eat raw meat. I speak in short sentences. but i love this book. It's not just a Jane Austen romance, it's a mini thriller and comedy too. John Thorpe is my idle.

Juliet Stevenson is my favorite reader for Jane Austen novels. She has a pleasing alto voice, and gives a very lively reading. Ms. Stevenson gives all of Jane's characters distinct voices and personalities. I recommend this audiobook highly!

There is not really much to say about the content of the book, Jane Austen lovers will enjoy, those new to her, give it a go, she's great! As to the narration, always brilliant from Juliet Stevenson. Enough variation between characters to mark a difference, without creating silly voices. So easy and charming to listen to.

There isn't much to say really - this is just perfect. The reading is, as usual with Juliet Stevenson, quite beautiful. She brings the characters to life, so that we really empathise with Catherine. Those who have read the Mysteries of Udolpho can enjoy Austen's irony. But even with no prior knowledge of the period, of contemporary literature or history you can just sit back and enjoy the story. Bliss.

I am sorry to say that this was my last of Jane Austen's series of novels. It was beautifully read by Juliet Stevenson who has a wonderful ability to bring these stories alive. I am a great fan of Austen and I loved this particular novel too.
