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.

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!
