Review: Jane Austen – Pride and Prejudice

IMG_0045I think it’s no secret that I love love love this book, and as I’ve read it many times before, I won’t be reviewing the actual book. It’s a work of genius and we all know it, I’ve read it so many times that I find myself anticipating the words that are coming.

Rather than reading it again this time, I have been listening to the audio version in my car on the way to and from work. I didn’t know how I’d enjoy this, but since I know the book so well, I really enjoyed it in a different way. When you’re reading, it’s quite easy to skip over bits that you recognise from before, but listening to it means that you get the full experience all over again.

I’ve not listened to this narrator before, but she had a lovely voice. It was like being read to by my grandma which was very soothing. She didn’t do ridiculous accents for the different characters, just normal voices with a different inflection which made it very pleasant to listen to. Her voice for Mrs Bennett was spot on!

It was definitely a brilliant way to keep me entertained through all the roadworks and traffic jams on my commute, and I’m so glad that I got to experience Pride and Prejudice all over again. I might need to see what other Austen books are available as audio versions!

5/5
