Publisher's Summary

One of Jane Austen’s most beloved works, Pride and Prejudice, is vividly brought to life by Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl). In her bright and energetic performance of this British classic, she expertly captures Austen’s signature wit and tone. Her attention to detail, her literary background, and her performance in the 2005 feature film version of the novel provide the perfect foundation from which to convey the story of Elizabeth Bennett, her four sisters, and the inimitable Mr. Darcy.
In Pride and Prejudice, the Bennett sisters try to find their way in the repressive strictures of 19th-century society. Austen shows the folly of judging by first impressions and the experience of falling in love, and she superbly describes a world which, despite being more than two centuries old, still resonates with modern concerns.

A perfect narration of a perfect book

Where does Pride and Prejudice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is the second edition of Pride and Prejudice that I purchased - I already have an older version (different narrator) and I am so glad that I saw Rosamund Pike's name and immediately bought this one. It is absolute perfection. It has long been one my favorite books but with her priceless narration if is certainly going to be on of the Beloved ones.

Which character – as performed by Rosamund Pike – was your favorite?

Practically all of them. She is a brilliant narrator with magnificent voice and managed to make even Mrs Bennet tolerable - not a small feat in itself. Her Mr Bennet is fantastic (actually I think she did it better than Sutherlend's performance in the 2005 movie) - she managed to subtly underline a hint of malevolence in his humor which I personally think is there and most people do not pay attention to.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It made me smile in sheer sensual pleasure all the time I listened to it (could not stop and listened through the night).

Any additional comments?

A wonderful audio book, simply wonderful. I hope this is not the last time I listen to something narrated by Rosamund Pike.

A Truth Universally Acknowledged

This is the fourth Audible version of P&P that I have purchased and listened to, and the first I have bothered to write a review of because it is by far the best. Rosamund Pike mispronounces a very few words, and sometimes goes overboard in her zeal to create separate, distinctive voices for each character, which sometimes (e.g., with Mr. Bingley's married sister Mrs Hurst) results in a female character sounding like a man), but overall is the most adept of all narrators of this beloved classic at allowing Austen's flawless prose to speak for itself. Her reading easily exceeds that of Alison Larkin (the 200th Anniversary Audio Edition), although that one is lively and entertaining, and includes music. The audio quality is far better than that of the version narrated by Lindsay Duncan, which, combined with Duncan's almost whispered Mrs Bennet voice, often makes that version difficult to listen to while driving. Pike's narration even exceeds that of Carolyn Seymour in the Blackstone Audio version, which until now was the most listenable of all.

Bravo, Rosamund Pike! And thank you, Audible! I will listen to this audiobook many, many times in the years to come!

Wonderful reading of a gorgeous book

Rosamund Pike is brilliant. Her voicing of characters is spot on especially the simpering Mr Collins and imperious Lady Catherine
