What on earth!!?

This is a bargain, but they don’t make it easy. It’s impossible to find the start of each book as the organisation of about 9 books into 6 parts is an utter mess.
I gave up listening to the first narration, robotic and grating. Save your credits for the other versions of Jane Austin books.

Ghastly!

On dear, oh dear, oh dear!

This is horrible. Flat, expressionless narration. And, sorry, but Jane Austen just does not sound right with an American accent.

And yet again with Austen's works, this has been just thrown together. I previously had a seven part reading where the seven novels were randomly strewn among them. I got a refund and hoped this one might have been put together with a little more thought and consideration.
So, part one begins with Emma, the fourth of the six major novels. But where does it end? Where does Sense and Sensibility or Pride and Prejudice begin and end?

Audible what is your problem? Once again, seven parts, seven books - just put one book per part WITH AN INDEX!!! An index is needed for all multi book narrations.

As I said, I had, then returned a similar ( but better narrated) seven part reading of the Austen novels. I have a similar issue with the Stephen Fry narration of the Sherlock Holmes. So again this will be returned and again I will ask why cannot Audible think and get this right?

Very disappointing

I cannot get this to play through my Echo dot in either the kitchen or the dining room, my kindle says it won't support this audio system although it will play through my Kindle. When it does then play the quality is shocking and I give up. I would like the money refunding, the same is happening with Fry's English delight so I want that credit refunding too please!

Utter and complete chaos

Chaotic audio book. It was imposible to skip easily from one book to the next.

I love the story BUT cannot listen to readers

This is a wonderful story and I have read or listened so many times, it is almost committed to memory but I can't listen to the narrators in this case. I endured most of Emma by one of the same readers and finally had to exit altogether. I'm returning it too.

poorly put together

Although the narrators voices are simply not for me, I think this is just personal preference as others may actually enjoy the narrators voices, tones, and reading styles, but I simply do not. That is really not the problem for this collection, the books are scattered and it is almost impossible to jump from one book to the next or vice versa.

Boring!!!!

I have read the stories in the past and wished to relive the fabulous accounts of the characters...BUT i wanted to rip my hair out at the dull, droning, unenthusiastic reading of these fabulous stories. It was 0.66cents so I am not that worried. I will make sure I NEVER purchase anything with that narrator again.

THANK YOU, AUDIBLE!!!!!!!

The entire collection is fantastic, but the trailer -- a collection of snippets from "The Watson's" electrified me! The narratior sounded JUST like my Grandmother (long passed) reading me to sleep! I immediately woke up, backed up the recording and replayed it to find out if I was "just dreaming" -- or if Audible somehow managed to channel Granma to me, years after she passed. Somehow, across time and space, my Grandmother's' (or something like an exact duplicate of HER voice) seemed to roll out of my tablet, as if she was just reading me to to sleep!) I treasured this collection LONG before the end cuts........but I will treasure it all the more, now. Thank you, Audible, THANK YOU! AN EXCELLENT PERFORMANCE.!
