English actress Kate Beckinsale is the perfect reader for Jane Austen’s brilliant satire-slash-love story.
Very few novels inspire the kind of fanatical devotion that Jane Austen’s Regency-era classic does. Pride and Prejudice follows the inimitable Elizabeth Bennet and her sisters, who are expected to behave in just-so, socially acceptable ways…but that’s not really in the cards. Pride and Prejudice is a witty satire, a family melodrama, and, above all, one of the greatest—and most imitated—love stories in Western literature.
There was no such thing as an audiobook when Jane Austen first published Pride and Prejudice in 1813, but we know that Austen liked to test her novels by reading them out loud to her family. Actress Kate Beckinsale narrates this Apple Books exclusive audiobook of the beloved English novel, which is perfect considering Beckinsale portrayed another Austen heroine in a 1996 movie adaptation of Emma.
Brilliant from start to finish
Kate does a wonderful job with the narration, her voice is easy listening with great emotion and enunciation!
Super awesome book, Jane Austen is an amazing writer. It’s a little boring at first but after you read the first chapter it two, you just have to keep reading.
The reader is not the best, but okay. Decent.
I would recommend this book to those who like classics.
