Brilliant new recording!

Where does Pride and Prejudice - the 200th Anniversary Audio Edition rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

My absolute favorite so far! I love listening to classic novels and I am a fan of both Alison Larkin and Jane Austen so I was thrilled to hear about this recording.

Who was your favorite character and why?

You can't pick just one, as they're all so distinct. Alison Larkin's portrayal of Mrs Bennet is very, very funny. So is her portrayal of Mr Collins. Elizabeth, Jane, Lydia, Mr Darcy, Mr Wickham - they're all very different and wonderful characters in their own way.

What does Alison Larkin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

A gift for bringing each character to life in a real way. You feel like you're there, in England at the start of the 19th century! It's a totally accessible read - not boring for ONE MOMENT and Alison Larkin has a way of playing the male characters that is real. I'm going to play it to my 12 year old daughter. It will be a great way to introduce her to Jane Austen.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was very moved by the part of the book when Elizabeth finds out what Darcy has done for her sister and her family.

Any additional comments?

There are other recordings of this great novel and I have listened to a couple of them. Even the famous actresses didnt come close to this recording which has all of Jane Austen's wit and life, combined with the depth that makes Austen's books so unforgettable. Sometimes a narrator and author fit perfectly. This is one of those times. And I loved the music too! I THINK it's Alison Larkin singing one of the songs between the chapters towards the end - hard to say - but that's really different. The song sounds like it's one of the Bennet singers singing. I loved it!

This is more than an audiobook. This is theatre!

Within the first three minutes of listening, I felt transported. I could have been in the West End! Wow. Allison Larkin grasps the characters so well, that they become absolutely visible, tangible and delightful. A real joy.

Brilliant! An excellent performance

Would you consider the audio edition of Pride and Prejudice - the 200th Anniversary Audio Edition to be better than the print version?

The audio edition I found bought all the satirical elements of the story to life which a print version has never really done for me.

Any additional comments?

Really enjoyed listening to this performance by Alison Larkin she brings all the characters alive. I especially liked her interpretation of Mr Collins and Lady Catherine. Would definitely recommend it as a very enjoyable listen.
