Publisher's Summary

Of all Jane Austen's books, Pride and Prejudice has earned a special place in the hearts of the reading public as her best-loved and most intimately known novel. From its famous opening sentence, the story of Elizabeth and Darcy, told with a wit that its author feared might prove "rather too light and bright, and sparkling," delights its most familiar readers as thoroughly as it does those who encounter it for the first time.

    "Disappointment"

    Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice is one of the best loved and best known classics of English literature. This version is read by Juliet Stevenson, one of the best readers, whose voice is perfectly suited to Jane Austen's style. However the book has been so cut up, so clumsily and brutally abridged, and so much of Jane Austen's elegant writing has been removed that it is hardly possible even to follow the bare bones of the story. We jump from one scene to another with no explanation, making it almost impossible to understand what is happening and with no attempt to build the atmosphere or to flesh-out the characters. Jane Austen's very real, understandable and amusing characters have seem reduced to mere cardboard cut-outs, and this is hardly more than a bald synopsis of thestory. A desecration!
