Pride and Prejudice

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
By: (1775-1817)

Pride and Prejudice is Jane Austen's classic comic romance, in which the five Bennett sisters try to find that most elusive creature: a single man in possession of a large fortune. Sparks fly when sweet, pretty Jane meets their new neighbor, Mr. Bingley, but her sister Elizabeth is most offended by his haughty friend, Mr. Darcy. This is Austen at the height of her powers: the ironic narration, hilariously drawn supporting characters, and romantic suspense make this her most enduringly popular novel.

PRIDE AND PREJUDICE By Jane Austen Chapter 1 It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of a good fortune, must be in want of a wife. However little known the feelings or views of such a man may be on his first entering a neighbourhood, this truth is so well fixed in the minds of the surrounding families, that he is considered the rightful property of some one or other of their daughters. "My dear Mr. Bennet," said his lady to him one day, "have you heard that Netherfield Park is let at last?" Mr. Bennet replied that he had not.

" You want to tell me, and I have no objection to hearing it." This was invitation enough. "Why, my dear, you must know, Mrs. Long says that Netherfield is taken by a young man of large fortune from the north of England; that he came down on Monday in a chaise and four to see the place, and was so much delighted with it, that he agreed with Mr...

I had to read this book for school. I knew this book was a chick-flick and that I would not enjoy it as well as other books. The narrating was great and it helped me a lot to get through the book. Thank you so much Klett and BooksShouldBeFree.

200 years later and this book is still on the nose with today's fundamentals. Elizabeth Klett s reading of it is so enticing. It is just as clever, witty, and intelligent as a Jane Austen herself... I felt I could almost hear Miss Austen's voice narrating.

This book was just amazing. I did not do much of the audio but read the whole book and I gotta say that reading it's a must. Loved it, one of my favorites now. I will try the audio now, other readers say it's great :)

The reader does a perfect job! If you have trouble reading through the novel itself, listening to this audio makes it much easier. She really distinguishes between character voices and descriptions. It's very, very helpful!
