Would you try another book from Jane Austen and/or Mary Sarah Agliotta?
What did you like best about this story?
Jane Austen is great!
How did the narrator detract from the book?
The narrator has no idea about the right pronunciation of places in England. She had no emotional involvment with the story. Very poor rendering.

I was looking forward to an engaging rendition of the story, but the narration was AWFUL. The narrator spoke quickly, but extremely softly, as if she were trying to hurry through the narration as quickly as possible without waking someone sleeping in the other room. Raising the volume didn't help because she would occasionally punctuate with a loud word - this was not a good rendition. I clearly see why it is the least expensive one on here.

I don't wish to be too negative, but on this occasion I will just have to be. I am not sure why, but the narrator for this book seemed, in my opinion, totally unsuitable for this story. A very 'odd' accent didn't help as it clashed with the rather 'old-fashioned' style of writing and language used, indeed in some of the passages she seemed to become totally tongue-tied. If you can, I would recommend trying another version of this book before this one.

Is it really appropriate to feature an American narrator reading classic British literature? Her mispronunciation of British place names really jars.
