Publisher's Summary

“…narrating the novels of Jane Austen reminded me that no matter how much the world changes, human nature never does.” (Alison Larkin)
Ever since Colin Firth's Mr. Darcy emerged from the lake in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, the novels of Jane Austen have become more popular than ever, delighting millions of fans all over the world. Now, Alison Larkin's critically acclaimed narrations of Austen's six completed novels are brought together in this very special 200th anniversary audio edition. "Alison Larkin's narration will captivate listeners from the first sentence", raves AudioFile magazine about the Earphones Award-winning recording of Sense and Sensibility, which starts the collection. 
Hailed by The Times as "marvelously light footed...hugely entertaining," Alison Larkin is the perfect vessel to bring the deft, satirical novels of Jane Austen to sparkling new life.
Alison Larkin is the best-selling author of The English American, a comedienne and the award-winning narrator of over 150 audiobooks. In addition to Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice with Songs from Regency England, Mansfield Park, Persuasion & Poems, Emma and Northanger Abbey and the History of England by Jane Austen, other classic narrations include Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass; Fairytales of the Fiercer Sex by the Brothers Grimm, et al; Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest (with James Warwick); Peter Pan & the Inconsiderate Waiter; and Agatha Christie's The Secret Adversary.

Table of Contents/Navigation Guide!

To get an 81 hour recording of an audiobook of this quality for under $30.00 is unprecedented. Alison Larkin is an A list narrator at the top of her game and she is perfect for Jane Austen. Here's the info I got re the navigation when I called the producers which answered all my questions.

Audible has broken this audiobook into multiple parts to make the download faster. This automatic process sometimes divides the novels in a less than intuitive way. Therefore, we have provided the following guide to help aid you in navigating the contents of the audiobook.

Table of Contents/Navigation Guide

Part 1:
Sense and Sensibility Chapters 1-38

Part 2:
Sense and Sensibility Chapters 39-50
Pride and Prejudice Chapters 1-27

Part 3:
Pride and Prejudice Chapters 28-61
Mansfield Park Chapters 1-5

Part 4:
Mansfield Park Chapters 6-45

Part 5:
Mansfield Park Chapters 46-48
Emma Chapters 1-35

Part 6:
Emma Chapters 36-55
Northanger Abbey Chapters 1-18

Part 7:
Northanger Abbey Chapters 19-31
Persuasion Chapters 1-24

If you are looking for the start of particular book, find the ‘Part’ it is in and look for a file that is between 7-10 seconds long. That will be the intro title for the book.

Jane Austen as she was meant to be heard!!!

I am THRILLED to find out that someone has thought to release Alison Larkin's wonderful Jane Austen narrations in one recording!! Alison Larkin is my absolute favorite Austen narrator because she makes it all so easy to understand and absolutely gets Austen's humor. Plus her voice is just such a pleasure to listen to! What a treat!

All in one place

If you could sum up The Complete Novels : Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Mansfield Park, Emma, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion in three words, what would they be?

I don't think Jane Austen needs reviewing. I enjoyed the narration by Alison Larkin a lot!

Any additional comments?

I agree with other comments that it wasn't easy to find the start of a book, having broken it down only into equal time slots. Here they are for future use:

Sense & Sensibility
Part 1 Chapters 2 - 41
Part 2 Chapters 1 - 14

Pride & Prejudice
Part 2 Chapters 15 - 43
Part 3 Chapters 1 - 35

Mansfield Park
Part 3 Chapters 36 - 42
Part 4 Chapters 1 - 42
Part 5 Chapters 1 -4

Emma
Part 5 Chapters 5 - 41
Part 6 Chapters 1 - 21

Fantastic!

At first, I wasn’t sure that I would like the tone of Larkin’s voice, but honestly she did AMAZING!! For one, I’m impressed that she did 80 hours worth of Austen! 🙌🏼 but her voices for each character and the passion, enthusiasm and life portrayed in each story was delightful to listen to. Thanks Alison!
