Publisher Description

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.

Amazing!

I'm usually a good reader, but pride and prejudice is strangely one of the only books i struggle to read. but this audiobook is amazing! i love having someone read it out for me. I would rather not have the character voices, but it wasn't annoying!
