A little glitchy
This is definitely better than some other audiobooks of Austen's work. However, especially in the second half she repeats certain sections of text like she made an error, corrected herself and then it wasn't edited out. At one stage there's even a long pause where you hear her turn a page. While noticeable, the audiobook is still enjoyable and very good value.
Great story but...
The production is terrible. The reader constantly stumbles over word and re-reads the sentence to try to get the inflections and intonation correct and there is no editing to remove this. It's like it was never proofed before being released.
The narrator has a great voice, very expressive. The only issue is that many times the editing has not been picked up and she will say the same thing twice in a different way.
