"A great story but also an excellent reading"
Juliet Stevenson's reading brings the characters alive and pours emotion to the dialogue.
Beautifully read, most enjoyable.
"A perfect narrative"
Juliet Stevenson's reading of this classic piece is flawless. She understands each character and brings them to life in turn. I love this book even more since listening to her narrative. Highly recommended - I will now be downloading many more of Juliet Stevenson's readings.
Juliet Stevenson's reading is incredibly clever, every character has his/her own voice, and when action moves to drama she can transmit feelings without unnecessary pathos.
"Classic Jane Austen"
As with the other Jane Austen novels she has narrated, Juliet Stevenson does another excellent job with this one.
This is classic Jane Austen and exactly what one would expect from her. Filled with the usual ups and downs of the romantic lives of her female heroines, this story is interesting and gripping, and delivered what my anticipation of it had hoped.
"a piece of art!!!!great narrator!!!"
This is a book for those who want to learn english and hear to a remarkable english accent of juliet Stevenson.
"Another great Jane Austin novel"
Sense and Sensibility was a lovely story, Jane Austin really makes you feel like you are living back in the old world amongst her characters. This book was a little slow to start but after a few chapters I was hooked and couldn't wait to hear what happened next. There are many twists and an interesting insight into their way of life, beautifully written.
"Transported away into another time"
Juliet Stevenson's reading of this classic allows you to be transported away to another time & revel in the sheer delight of her voice, intonation & diction which takes Ms Austen's classic to a new level of enjoyment. Though familiar with the book, I thought I would listen to it again in favour of re-reading the book prior to the next book club - sheer joy A must download for every Audible library!
Brilliant, of course, but also really well read. I loved it even though I have read it many times.
"Unsuitable for men"
What a load of awful twaddle,avoid like the plague why is Jane Austen so popular ? Juliet Stevenson does her best to breath some live into the turgid proceedings but fails.
