Publisher's Summary

Originally conceived by Jane Austen as a novel of letters, when it eventually became her first published novel, Sense and Sensibility instead presented her now-famous omniscient, and often ironic, narrator. Austen moves between the straight point of view, where information can be trusted as fact, and the ironic, where critiques of society can be leveled with some measure of sarcasm. Readers must be careful to distinguish between the two.
Here, scholar Wendy E. Mullen recognizes the shifts and tips off the listener by a slight vocal modulation for the ironic point of view. At the same time, she gives the characters unique voices, capturing their essences and bringing them to life as she reads. This tale of Elinor and Marianne will engage the listener for hours on end.

Critic Reviews

"Wendy Ellison Mullen settles into her own as a reader here with this entrancing recording. The characters come to life, each with a different timbre of Mullen's multifaceted voice. Lucy is unctuous and underbred, as John Dashwood and Fanny are pretentious and overbred. Mrs. Jennings is a jolly old soul. And Willoughby - ah, an elegant rogue is he!" (Elliott Bay Audiobooks)
