One of Jane Austen's most beloved works, Pride and Prejudice, is vividly brought to life by Academy Award nominee Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl). In her bright and energetic performance of this British classic, she expertly captures Austen's signature wit and tone. Her attention to detail, her literary background, and her performance in the 2005 feature film version of the novel provide the perfect foundation from which to convey the story of Elizabeth Bennett, her four sisters, and the inimitable Mr. Darcy. In Pride and Prejudice, the Bennett sisters try to find their way in the repressive strictures of 19th-century society. Austen shows the folly of judging by first impressions and the experience of falling in love, and she superbly describes a world which, despite being more than two centuries old, still resonates with modern concerns.

I finally finished this book! YAY! My goodness, it took me forever to do so. It's as romantic as I had expected but also very difficult to keep track of all the Miss Bennetts. Lindsey Duncan's narration was delightful and she infused it with a lot of emotion.Before reading/listeningI have tried many...
Although I loved reading from an early age, I didn’t usually enjoy the classics we were required to read for school. In my adult years, I’ve mostly avoided them aside from several science fiction and fantasy classics. As a result of a conversation in a thread on another site, I decided to read one...
A bland, tedious, "romance" (couldn't find the romance) novel with a collection of one-dimensional, shallow, irritating characters. PS: The 2005 movie version is better than the book.
