Sense and Sensibility, Emma, Persuasion
by Jane Austen
I am a reader who is very fond of the works of Jane Austen. I have read and reread her books always enjoying them and taking away something different each time. I have also listened to many of the novels.
This collection is narrated by Prunella Scales, a British actress. Her accent, voice and tone seem perfect for the works that are in this collection. There are three of Austen’s well-known novels here. Each features engaging characters and the keen observations of the author.
There is only one thing that I don’t love about this collection and that is that the books are abridged. Still, it is a wonderful omnibus for a quicker Jane Austen experience or for those who want an introduction and may follow up with the full narrations at a later date.
Many, many thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for this enjoyable collection. All opinions are my own.
