Publisher's Summary

"His perfect indifference, and your pointed dislike, make it so delightfully absurd!"Pride and Prejudice has delighted generations of readers with its unforgettable cast of characters, carefully choreographed plot, and a hugely entertaining view of the world and its absurdities. With the arrival of eligible young men in their neighbourhood, the lives of Mr and Mrs Bennet and their five daughters are turned inside out and upside down. Pride encounters prejudice, upward-mobility confronts social disdain, and quick-wittedness challenges sagacity, as misconceptions and hasty judgements lead to heartache and scandal, but eventually to true understanding, self-knowledge, and love. In this supremely satisfying story, Jane Austen balances comedy with seriousness, and witty observation with profound insight. If Elizabeth Bennet returns again and again to her letter from Mr Darcy, readers of the novel are drawn even more irresistibly by its captivating wisdom.

excellent reading

Lindsey Duncan, the English actress, does a fine job in this reading. Her Elizabeth is not pert or flirty, but intelligent and witty. You can see why Darcy is so taken with her. Duncan is good with all the women, differentiating their language and intonation. This is the one to listen to!

Jane Austen Pride and Prejudice

I listened briefly to all the "Pide and Prejudice" audios on our list, before buying this production narrated by Linsey Duncan. Ms Ducan's reading is superb. Each character is given a unique voice and portrayed with such subtlety, that the novel easily flows in currents of reality. Miss Austen's language is preserved and alive. I am a serious reader of Ms Austen and I am totally satisfied with this audio.

First of many

This was my first Audible download, and I was interested to see how a familiar story would appeal in this format. Having seen the film versions, I was unsure whether I would find the unabridged audiobook too long. I needn't have worried. Lindsay Duncan reads very well, and I enjoyed the full story immensely. I looked forward to the next instalment each evening, and will now be ordering more Jane Austen for my next download.

Utterly lovely

No matter how many times I read or listen to this book it is still wonderful. This is a great reading of it - why would you buy an abridged version when you can have it all?

A great novel beautifully narrated

I loved this book even more than previous readings or movies of it. This time the wonderful narration brought it alive so vividly for me. The characters were so individually different but real for the period in which it was set. Elizabeth Bennett was a marvellous character and perfect for Darcy. Highly recommended.
