Worst version imaginable

The narrator reads too fast, with no emmotion, and no pauses for punctuation. She sounds almost mechanical in her reading, and has turned an amazing novel into a tedious, barely intelligible verbal race to reach the next chapter on a single breath. Don't waste your money, select another version.

Good book; bad recording

I enjoyed the story very much. The narrator spoke a little too quickly sometimes, and it jumped several times, skipping at least a few sentences here and there. There's a reason it's cheap. I love Jane Austen, though, and here she excels once again at creating compelling, realistic characters.
