Pride and Prejudice
by Jane Austen
Narrated by Rosamund Pike
Overall Performance Story
★★★★★  ★★★★☆  ★★★★★

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.

 It is a flawless masterpiece indeed Mr.Cooper.


Pride and Prejudice is one of my favorite classics and I thought the narration by Rosamund was very fitting to the tone of the book. Her narration was very even and nicely paced. My only complain was her voice for Mrs.Bennet (Elizabeth's mother); it was a bit annoying for my taste. Elizabeth however was spot on!


I cannot possibly write something that hasn't been written about this classic piece of literature.

I read this when I was a teenager and loved it. Both Elizabeth and Darcy hold a special place in my heart. Their admittance of their faults is admirable. And their subtle romance contradicts all the romance that conquers literature nowadays.. 


I do recommend this audiobook, if you like Pride and Prejudice. Plus, if you get the free kindle you can get this narration at 1.99$ which is an amazing bargain!
