Book Description

13 July 2009 CSA Word Recording
"Pride and Prejudice": an elegant tableau revolving around the five Bennett daughters, including clever, strong-spirited Elizabeth. Austen's masterpiece is a study of love, loss and snobbery. "Sense and Sensibility": the engaging story of sisters Elinor and Marianne, whose lives are turned upside down when they are left almost penniless following the death of their father. Two men with whom the sisters form attachments present more unforeseen challenges along the way. "Emma": Emma is an exquisitely crafted social portrait of late Eighteenth-century society, widely considered to be Austen's most literarily accomplished work. Emma Woodhouse, self-appointed meddling matchmaker, stands to lose out on love herself if she isn't careful. "Persuasion": in part autobiographical, Persuasion has a quieter sense of humour, and takes a more serious tone, than some of Austen's other novels. Anne Elliot is revisited by her ex-fiancee, coinciding with a downturn in her family's fortunes, and has some choices to make. "Northanger Abbey": young and susceptible, Catherine Morland expects dark secrets and many dangers to be lurking in the hidden recesses of Northanger Abbey. In fact, the real obstacles lying in her path are more mundane but just as serious as her imagined horrors. The collection also includes 2 Bonus CDs including "The Watsons", an early Austen short story, and a collection of letters. Titles read by highly-acclaimed British actresses including Anna Massey, Harriet Walter and Joanna Lumley.

3.0 out of 5 stars Only a snippet of the real thing 19 Feb 2012
By Dawn
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I would give this a 2 1/2 not a three star recommend. If you would like to get an idea of audio books then this is a good start. However, I don't think it is made clear enough that these are all ABRIDGED versions, so you only get a wee taste of the books and in my opinion far too much is missed out to make a fair understanding of these beautifully written classics.

1.0 out of 5 stars MORTIFIED 18 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this collection together with the Bronte collection offered by the same company because I am studying this literature on a University course. I say this to compound my absolute total despair! The c.d's are WONDERFUL ! beautifully read, I absolutely love them. BUT and it's a big but....... I have had to return this collection TWICE now...... asked for replacement which came fine, the first one of the c'd's "slipped" would not play properly THIS box the second Pride and Prejudice c.d. is NOT P & P AT ALL but the second of Sense and Sensibility. I am currently awaiting my THIRD copy of the Bronte selection by this company, hoping against hope I can get ONE correct........if not that will go back again and I will just give up. I am very very upset about this because they are all I wanted, lovely versions of ALL books and as I have said beautifully read. I do have to add they have been edited and are not exactly true to text per se, but any edition be it c.d dvd or film always alters which is infuriating yes. Nevertheless they would have been most useful to me...There must be some horrendous defect in the manufacture of these items and I'm afraid to say I cannot possibly recommend them....... don't buy!
Since writing this review I have found no comparable recordings so am further distressed, what a shame.

Two months later and after a third attempt a very kind lady has contacted me from the company offering me the full set when a new batch has been produced. There clearly was a fault on the batch experienced by other customers. On this premise I would recommend the product to any Jane Austin fans and am very grateful for this follow up..........much appreciated

2.0 out of 5 stars Oh!! That's mean 20 April 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This struck me as quite an immoral trick. I bought this collection mostly because of the 'free audiobook' links. But the links are for Project Gutenberg, a collection of works read by volunteers. It is a website with absolutely no affiliation to Amazon or any professional publisher and whilst it is a lovely idea, they are read by ordinary readers with WILDLY differing levels of ability.

Since this work is all pre-copyright, I could actually have downloaded it for kindle free online (from many sites including ironically, Project Gutenberg) I know it's just a few pounds but i can't help feeling a little cheated.

I ordered this collection based on the picture I saw that said the books are Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice and Persuasion. These are the 3 audio books I got.
The description is obviously wrong, which is a shame as it puts people off ordering a great set.

3.0 out of 5 stars Review of the Jane Austen Collection 6 April 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was looking for unabridged audio books, and the website did not make it clear whether what I was purchasing was abridged or not. So it was very misleading, it was for my wife and she was disappointed with the CDs. The information given was not clearly set out and was confusing. Sorry!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure pleaseure 7 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD
Lock yourself away and enjoy listening to these stories, I use my Nano or I phone, they are very relaxing to listen too, if you have watched the films then listening to these audio discs are just as good as you can slip away and imagine yourself in the story.
