It is clear some of the actors do not have native English accents. The actor who played Bingley and the actor who played Wickham clearly are American, and didn’t even try to put on a British accent. The actress who played Mrs. Bennett had the absolute most annoying voice and inflection, and I wanted to stop listening after hearing her talk the first time! I just prayed she didn’t have many speaking parts. It was terrible and I have no idea how the director allowed her to continue. Absolutely horrid.
It also appears there were issues with the volume level. At some points, the narrator would be at a normal volume, and seconds later she was very loud. I assume this was the splicing of different takes. Very unprofessional...
The worst part is definitely anytime Mrs. Bennett (the mother) would speak. She ruined this for me. I wanted to listen to this version because of the different voices (versus another version with just one narrator for all parts). Bad decision. Choose another version. This is the pits. You’ll want to stick a q-tip far down your ear holes. Terrible.

Snarky Elizabeth, pallid Lady Catherine, Scottish accented Mr. Collins. Narrator without any ironic distance. In short, not a good production. only Mr. Darcy with listening to. Get the Emma Messnger reading instead
