I look forward to your review of that audiobook… I may have to add it to my collection! I listened to the version by Nadia May. It is excellent. The Emilia Fox sample I listened to sounds just as just as good. Whichever version you choose, it must be read with a British accent! I agree, Diane! I recently purchased another one… read by Josephine Bailey who also has a British accent and it was also excellent!

As I look back, it is difficult to remember that I have read this — my favorite Jane Austen novel — nearly 50 times since my 13th birthday when I was first given it by my grandmother.

I will always love the independence of Elizabeth, admire the gentleness of Jane, enjoy the humor of Mr. Bennet, laugh at Mr. Collins, appreciate the kindness of the Gardiners, fantasize about Mr.

Certainly she was not Elizabeth Bennet, but she was warm and witty and had grown by the end and turned down the Wickamesque Daniel Cleaver Hugh Grant in favor of her Mr.
The screenplay by Andrew Davies, who did the version, was thoroughly charming. I was glad to see it again so many years later. I have chosen disciple level first before thinking whether to add in more tasks. I was so excited when I realized it was the th anniversary. Aficionada for me, please!
