Excellent narration

I chose this version after listening to the audio samples of the many unabridged versions of Sense and Sensibility that Audible offers. I just finished listening to it and I am impressed. Susannah Harker does a fantastic job narrating and the audio quality is excellent as well. If you've only seen the Sense and Sensibility movies, then you need to read the book. The ending is much more fulfilling (as is the entire book) and Jane Austen's writing is full of wit, irony and genius.

You can find a review of the actual book in many places so I won't waste time. I highly recommend this audiobook version though.

A good listen

Except for some overlong pauses between chapters, I thoroughly enjoyed the quality of Susannah Harker's reading and interpretation of the characters. I remember her from the 1995 production of Pride & Prejudice and enjoyed her performance then.

Harker does an excellent job

I am not quite sure why I selected this version, read by Susannah Harker, but it turned out to be a highly fortunate choise. Miss Harker's reading is superb throughout. She manages to impersonate all the male and female characters with great subtlety and without the ridiculous changes of pitch and volume employed by some audio book readers. This is an absolute joy to listen to. And at a good price, too. Let's have some more from this reader.

Perfect

Would you consider the audio edition of Sense & Sensibility to be better than the print version?

I never believed I would say this, but they are equal. I would happily turn to either the next time I want to revisit this story.

What other book might you compare Sense & Sensibility to, and why?

Nothing can be compared to Jane Austen's works, and that is why they are still read. No one else could truly capture the social aspect of the time as well, and in such a way that still resonates with readers today.

What about Susannah Harker’s performance did you like?

Listening to Susannah Harker, it was as if Miss Austen herself was reading the story to me. Harker's soft and gentle voice, her timing, and even her accent, all lend to the illusion that it was Jane Austen who was telling this story to her family.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Oh, I'm afraid I'm not witty enough for that; besides, the title speaks for itself.

Any additional comments?

This audio book is a beautifully read classic, I would recommend to all Jane Austen fans.
