I've read the book many times, but it was equally enjoyable listening to it while I did other things. It's very well narrated, and the sound quality is excellent. no complaints about this title.

Pride and Prejudice is one of my favourite books and I read it regularly. So, my greatest concern in downloading this audiobook was whether or not the narrator would do credit to the work or not. I am happy to report that she does. Kate Reading does a wonderful job of voicing the various characters, making it easy to discern which character is saying what dialogue. Not only are the characters distinctly voiced but Reading obviously knows them intimately, for her performance of each is exactly in line with Austen's description of them. Kitty is truly fretful. Mr. Darcy is dignified and reserved. Elizabeth is lively. In fact, Reading was such an excellent narrator that I am disappointed that there are no other Jane Austen works narrated by her.

I don't want to slate this version too much, but I must be honest in its appraisal.
I should have been less hasty in my choice of narrator. Kate Reading hasn't made a complete hash of the story telling by any means, but her style of reading and character interpretation just didn't meet my listening needs. I like to get lost in a story, especially one that I've read more than a dozen times in hard copy, but it just didn't work for me. I found myself becoming irritated and could only listen to it in short bursts. Of course different styles suit different listeners, this may suit another member but not my best choice so far. Sorry.
