Product Description

Review

Eight hours longer even than Naxos' complete Sherlock Holmes, this has got to be the audiobook box set of the decade! All six complete major novels are read here in mellifluous and engagingly vital voices which, however many times you listen, instantly draw you into Jane Austen's world. --Rachel Redford, The Observer

Together for the first time, the complete and unabridged audio recordings of Jane Austen's novels handsomely presented in a boxed set. Counting 69 CDs and running over 83 hours, this is the Holy Grail of Austen audio book recording as only Naxos could present with superb readings by Juliet Stevenson, Emilia Fox, and Anna Bentinck. Included are Austen's six major novels, the novella Lady Susan and her unfinished novels Sanditon and The Watsons. This is definitely the essential collector's item. Nuff said! --Laurel Ann, austenprose.wordpress.com

Top of the boxed sets is Jane Austen: The Complete Novels, read by Juliet Stevenson, Emilia Fox and Anna Bentinck, flaunting alongside the favourites of television drama the less-familiar Northanger Abbey and Lady Susan. Winner of the Telegraph's Audiobooks of the Year. --Carole Mansur, Telegraph

Book Description

Jane Austen’s complete novels in an unbeatable package of authenticity, high quality and excellent value.

More About the Author

Jane Austen was an English novelist whose works of romantic fiction set among the gentry have earned her a place as one of the most widely read and most beloved writers in English literature.

Jane Austen was born in Steventon rectory on 16th December 1775. Her family later moved to Bath and then to Chawton in Hampshire. She wrote from a young age and Pride and Prejudice was begun when she was twenty-two years old. It was originally called First Impressions. It was initially rejected by the published she submitted it too and eventually published in 1813 after much revision.

All four of her novels - Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814) and Emma (1815) published in her lifetime were published anonymously. Jane Austen died on 18th July 1817. Northanger Abbey and Persuasion (both 1817) were published posthumously.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let other pens dwell on guilt and misery 16 May 2010
By E. A Solinas HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
Jane Austen. Her name is practically synonymous with classic, understated romance, as well as comedies of manners with a subtle, sly sense of humor.

And Austen's "The Complete Novels" brings together the full complement of Austen's finished novels, from the little-known "Lady Susan" to the classic bestseller "Pride and Prejudice" (and everything in between). This collection is flled with lovably flawed heroines, beautiful formal prose, and some rather unconventional love stories.

"Pride and Prejudice" become a problem when Elizabeth Bennett takes a dislike to the handsome, aloof Mr. Darcy -- and her prejudice against him builds after he sabotages her sister's love match, and the charming Wickham drops some shocking claims about Darcy's nastiness. But the facts are very different -- and when scandal hits the Bennett family, Darcy may be their only hope. And "Sense and Sensibility" clash when the two very different Dashwood sisters, smart Elinor and romantic Marianne, both fall in love -- one with a man she can't have, and the other with a guy who may be horribly unsuitable.

Anne Elliott has a problem with "Persuasion," since she was once engaged to the impoverished sailor Frederick Wentworth, but was persuaded to break it off. Now he's returned from war as a wealthy hero... and Anne still loves him. "Mansfield Park" is the backdrop for shy Fanny's life with her rich relatives, who usually treat her as a servant -- except for her kindly cousin, Edmund. But when the flirtatious, fashionable Crawfords arrive in the neighborhood, it unbalances the lives of everyone at Mansfield Park.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for Kindles 19 Jan 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Some of the reviewers here are plain wrong. There IS a Table of Contents. It can be accessed very easily by using the Kindle "Go To" function on the menu page. Clicking on titles listed in the contents takes you straight to your book. This seems to be standard for compilation e-books - for example, the Charles Dickens collection works the same way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lost in Austen 28 May 2009
Format:Hardcover
I have been looking for some time for a book which contained all of Austen's stunning work. My search has ended. This book is visually magnificent and has all 7 novels unaltered. It also is a fabulous price you could scarcely buy 1 novel for this money especially not one as visually dynamic. On arrival I was shocked at the size and thickness of this book when reading it in school my peers often mistake it for a bible! and in due fact it is thicker. Although it is a collosal book it is actually rather light and is easily transported without weraing the owner down. The content cannot be criticed and the writting is unlike other books of this kind as it is easily read. Overall I believe this to be a superb buy which I would recomend to anyone!

Just thought I'd mention that this item is not a set of individual books (as I had personally assumed), but instead it's actually one very large book containing all the stories in one, which wasn't what I personally had in mind..

It may have just been a silly mistake on my part but I don't think the synopsis is particularly clear so just thought I'd post a warning to others just in case you make the same assumption!

Still, the item itself is none-the-less lovely quality, just be aware :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Complete Works of Jane Austen 23 April 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This was a present for my youngest daughter, who is at University. She had always wanted to read the works of Jane Austen. So, I bought this complete works as it is very easy for a student to transport around and she can dip into it any time. She loves it and is now a great Austen fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good present 6 July 2009
Format:Hardcover
I bought this as a present for a friend who loves Jane Austen's books. The illustrations are beautiful and the text is a good size. The book is large (obviously since it's the complete novels!) so probably ends up being flicked through and appreciated rather than read while curled up on a sofa. A book to keep.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book 19 May 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful edition to my Jane Austen collection. The typeface is clear and the paper is of a good quality. The illustrations are delightful. The book was prinrted in China but this has not affected the quality of the collected works.
Any Austen fan would be proud to have this book on their shelves (providing the shelves are deep and high enough of course).

4.0 out of 5 stars Chunky edition of Austen's completed novels 25 Feb 2010
By T. Bently VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a huge doorstop-sized edition of Austen's novels. The print is quite large and pleasant but I guess people studying her for exams would prefer to buy the novels individually for easier handling.

I'm not sure this is really a deluxe edition, as stated on the cover, as the pages are rough-cut, making it look more like a bargain version. The front-cover illustration is a little strange as well, as it shows a man and woman indulging in a passionate kiss - hardly something the author is famous for depicting. Also, the entertaining, unstuffy introduction by Karen Joy Fowler (author of The Jane Austen Book Club) paints Austen as an anti-romantic, so perhaps something more decorous would have been fitting.

Overall, this is a good buy for anyone wanting to purchase all Austen's novels in one fowl swoop.
