Critic reviews

"There's a vintage feel to Alison Larkin's narration... The bell-like quality of her sweetly accented voice harkens back to another, quieter, time. However, her delivery...offers a flexibility that is contemporary and easy to hear." (AudioFile Magazine)

"Alison Larkin is a wonderful British lady that delivers the best possible way to enjoy Pride and Prejudice with some unforgettable performances." (Audiobook Jungle)

Brilliant! An excellent performance

Would you consider the audio edition of Pride and Prejudice - the 200th Anniversary Audio Edition to be better than the print version?

The audio edition I found bought all the satirical elements of the story to life which a print version has never really done for me.

Any additional comments?

Really enjoyed listening to this performance by Alison Larkin she brings all the characters alive. I especially liked her interpretation of Mr Collins and Lady Catherine. Would definitely recommend it as a very enjoyable listen.
