Publisher's Summary

Jane Austen's most popular novel, originally published in 1813, some 17 years after it was first written, presents the Bennet family of Longbourn. Against the background of gossipy Mrs. Bennet and the detached Mr. Bennet, the quest is on for husbands for the five daughters. The spotlight falls on Elizabeth, second eldest, who is courted by Darcy, though initially she is more concerned with the fate of her other sisters.

    "Pride and Prejudice"

    This audio book was wonderful. The voice of the reader was very easy to listen to, while still affording the ability to distiquish between characters. I listened to it on a flight to and from England and, remarkably, it made the flight enjoyable. I hope you enjoy hearing it as much as I did.

    "favorite reader"

    Miss Fox gives a wonderful read of this great book. I love the way she does the different voices. Her timing and inflections are wonderful.

    "Ah, Mr. Darcy!"

    There is nothing like listening to your favorite Jane Austen book! Complete with the beautiful accent, it is almost as if she is reading it herself. I hated this to end!! The story was brought to life better than any Hollywood film could have!

    "PURE DELIGHT"

    This book is my all time favorite. The dialog is stunning. The characters have become a part of my inner world, they are so real to me. It takes the ordinary theme of young men and women meeting and falling in love to a level that I simply have never encountered in any other story I've read. It is all done with brilliant and cleverly written dialog. To think that this was written by a young woman of her time is truly amazing, that is was so popular at the time is even more amazing and that it continues to be such a favorite is only well deserved.
    I enjoyed this audio book very much and look forward to Part II. Although I have read this book at least a dozen times over the past four decades, it is always as delightful as it was the first time I read it.

    "Excellent narration!"

    As a classic, this is an obvious must-read. I read it in school but the audiobook made the story so much more enjoyable due to the characters easy-to-understand accent and voice-impersonations. If you haven't read this in a while, definitely listen to the audio version, you will love it!

    "Mrs. Bennet is even more annoying on audio"

    While this is my favorite book, I had a hard time with the narration. To make Mrs. Bennet so strident, the narrator made her very loud. Charlotte Lucas was narrated very softly. Consequently, I was constantly annoyed at having to adjust my volume.

    "Great reading!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this reading of P&P. At first, it drove me crazy when Ms. Fox would read Mrs. Bennett's lines - she would shriek and wail in a very obnoxious manner. Then I realized this is probably exactly how Mrs. Bennett would have spoken!

    "Worth listening to over and again"

    I have read the book but do so much traveling that I wanted to hear it read and the narrator did a superb job of each character. She kept the intent of the Author.

    that hasn't already been said. I listen to this book at least once a month. I love Jane Austen and this is my favorite of her works. It is well read and completely engrossing.

    Story
    "First Loves Never Die"

    You ever notice how your first loves stay with you forever? It's true. Love for things as well sa people, you just... always remember. Well, that's my feeling about Pride and Prejudice. It was one of my first loves.
    Jane Austin is an engaging writer. The characters draw you in, and you know who they are because they are people in your life somehow.
    The story gets into you somehow and it breaths it's own passion.

    I'm not sure what else I can say without giving away the plot, except that I highly recommend this book to anyone with a romantic soul.

    "Best narrator ever!"

    Emilia Fox is once again amazing. She brings every character to live so as one can picture them exactly as Austen describes them. If you love Austen this is definatley the audio version for you as she brings an energy into it which makes even me, a not so avid fan, warm to the story. Once you listen to this listen to other books which Emilia Fox reads in particular the Agatha Christie books. Again she gives each character a life of their own and she is by far one of the best if not the best narrator in the world.

    "Brought to Life"

    As the previous reviewer states, the narrator brings this story to life. Through her skill, you are transported into world Jane Austin has created.

    I came to this story more out of curiosity through its fame as a literary work but was thoroughly impressed by both the quality of the presentation and the story itself. Highly recommended!

    "Excellent rendition of a well known classic"

    It's often a disappointment when the reading of a well loved story doesn't meet expectations. This one did - Emilia Fox's reading was excellent with good characterisation. Although the unabridged version is lengthy - it was all highly enjoyable.

    "Wonderful!"

    This is, for me, the definitive performance of Pride and Prejudice. What an actress Emilia Fox proves herself to be in her characterisation of the beloved and not so beloved characters within this book.

    I make no comment on the book itself as, if you have seen the BBC's Classic rendition then you can make up your own mind as to whether this is for you, for they follow the story faithfully throughout.

    "Two of my favourite things, together at last."

    Emilia Fox rocks! Well, not really. But she does do an absolutely stellar job of reading P&P with wonderful expression. I suppose it's not surprising, given her background and links to the much-loved BBC production of this much-loved novel. Ms Fox is also one of the few actresses who reads unabridged versions of the classics, which is also a delight. I could listen to her voice for hours, and luckily, now that is exactly what I can do.

    "Fox brings Austin to life"

    Pride & Prejudice is one of those books I felt I ought to read but just haven't gotten around to it. When I saw there was a version narrated by Emilia Fox I decided this was the way to go, having previously enjoyed her narration of different Audible books. I am so glad I did as she brought the characters to life and has secured this book a place on my shelves (and iPhone).

    "A joy to read"

    I don't feel at all qualified to review a book which has so long been the subject of literary and academic appraisals, so I will say only how much I enjoyed the reading of it. If I could give this six stars I would without hesitation. The story gave real insight into life amongst the landed gentry at this time, the pace was perfect, the plot complex enough to keep the reader intrigued and yet tight enough that not a single line was wasted on superfluous characters or unnecessary diversions. The characters are without exception beautifully and richly developed. The language is an absolute joy to read and reminds me how poor our everyday language is now by comparison. This was simply a joy to read from cover to cover.

    Story
    "A classic for a reason"
    Where does Pride and Prejudice rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    By far my most listened to audiobook but also one of my most re-read books full stop.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mr Bennett had always been my favourite character due to his sense of humour and the way that he is described - it is possible that he reminds me a little of many that I know.


    What about Emilia Fox’s performance did you like?

    She bought a nice sense of brutishness to the story as would be expected and what very few accents she uses are well done and appropriate. A nice steady pace and thoughtfully executed.

    "Pride and prejudice"
    What made the experience of listening to Pride and Prejudice the most enjoyable?

    Read beautifully by Emilia Fox. Always one of my favourite books.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Inevitably, Elizabeth Bennett, closely followed by Mr Collins. Emilia Fox brought out his 'cringiness' superbly.


    What does Emilia Fox bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Her reading was so good that it brought out hidden depths.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wanted to, but it actually took three or four listening episodes. Time so well spent.


    Any additional comments?

    Just loved this rendition.
