Publisher's Summary

Charles Bingley, a wealthy young gentleman, has moved into Netherfield Park manor, which causes much excitement in the village of Longbourn, especially among the five unmarried daughters of the Bennet household. Despite many romatic complications, the overall tone of this classic novel is, as Jane Austen described it, “light and bright, and sparkling”.

It's About Time I Read This

I really enjoyed listening to this audio version of the classic novel. It reminded me of a soap opera - much better of course, but I was able to drift in and out of it at times without missing much action, the details of which were soon apparent to me without having to go back and re-listen. That, and I did follow along with the printed book, a totally great way to read!!!

The symbolism in the novel goes much deeper than a soap opera could do. True to its name, it is about the prejudice, the pre-judging that the main characters do which prevents them from understanding one another. It takes the experiences of life to knock off some rough edges, to pull off the masks that these people wear around, to be able to get to the soft middle part that is the true human being hidden within. When that takes place, they realize that they can drop their pride and fall in love. It is a love story, and a philosophical wonder.

I accidentally downloaded two different versions of this book, with two different narrators, Helen Lisanti and Lindsey Duncan. They were both good. I bounced back and forth between the two of them and never did decided which I preferred.

An excellent reading of my favourite book....

I originally bought this reading of "Pride and Prejudice" simply because it was the cheapest available and also it was one of my first purchases of an Audible book. However, I have to say I think it was an excellent choice as Helen Lisanti is a first class narrator and I have listened again and again to this well loved classic. She does have some difficulty with the male characterizations but she improves as the book progresses. I have since gone back and sampled the other readings of "Pride and Prejudice" and have only found one reading I think may be better than Helen Lisanti's and that is the one by Josephine Bailey. However, it is a much more expensive version..... This one, I think, is a bargain and I recommend it highly
