Many consider this rich social commentary to be Jane Austen's finest novel. It is certainly among her more famous ones. Austen sets her entertaining study of manners and misconceptions against the backdrop of a class-conscious society in 18th century England.Spirited, intelligent Elizabeth Bennett is alternately enchanted and affronted by Mr. Darcy. She is quick to suspend her usual, more rational judgment when it comes to him. She also is quick to believe the worst gossip about this haughty, opinionated man who soon manages to alienate Elizabeth and her family. But is the condescending air that Mr. Darcy wears an indication of his real character? Or has Elizabeth's pride gotten in the way of her chance for true romance?More

Practically perfect in every way

I really enjoyed this audio ebook. It was really easy to listen along too. I quite often closed my eyes whilst listening and would picture in my mind the story as it rolled along.
I dont beleive you will go wrong in following Flo Gibson as she is quite good, and the way that she changes tones and pace to suit the characters, really gives this book justice and merit. Well done, and I am certainly going to be looking for more narations by Flo Gibson.
The narration is great, and gives the whole book feeling.
Mr Darcy is well done
