Jane Lapotaire Has a Dream Voice

Would you consider the audio edition of Pride and Prejudice to be better than the print version?

The audio version is better than the written version because I can read it while I drive. And in my mind I can never sound as wonderfully English as Jane Lapotaire.


What did you like best about this story?

What can you say about Miss Austen. Classic.


What about Jane Lapotaire’s performance did you like?

Jane Lapotaire has such a delicious voice that I forgot to concentrate on the story and just listened to her speak.


Any additional comments?

My only complaint was that it was abridged. What did I miss? Pay Jane Lapotaire more and have her read the whole thing.
