disappointing narration

This version of the collected Jane Austen books must have come from the american arm of Audible and would be fine for that market but I found it difficult to listen to Austen's wonderful and subtle prose through a rather lack lustre rendition and many mispronunciations. Persuasion was particularly poor. I recommend another version for narration but don't be put off Austen's work since the writing is sparkling, often hilarious and transcends time and different society's customs brilliantly.
