Book: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

Format: Kindle and Audiobook

Rating: 5 of 5.

One of my Favorite Quotes: “How pleasant it is to spend an evening in this way! I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book! When I have a house of my own, I shall be miserable if I have not an excellent library.”

Comments:

This book is a Classic and a most read, I found the narration by Rosamund Pike very engaging and I especially enjoyed it in the parts of Mr. Collins, Mrs. Bennet and Jane Bennet.
While listening the Audiobook I couldn’t help compare the book with the 2005 Movie adaptation (the one starring Keira Knightley), and to be honest even when I think the character of Lizzy is really well written, she wasn’t my favorite. There are some things that I found myself questioning about Lizzy after finishing the book (particularly some of her attitudes towards people like Darcy and even sometimes her friend Charlotte).
Overall I enjoyed this book a lot, I love how Jane Austen portrayed the characters and I would recommend it (specially this Audiobook version).

Currently Reading (and listening): Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen.

I have a big collection of Kindle books and I’m always looking for good offers on the Audiobook version (so I can I switch between reading and listening to the book).

Yesterday I found in Audible a version of Pride and Prejudice narrated by Rosamund Pike, currently I’m on chapter 7 and loving it.

Originally, Pride and Prejudice wasn’t included on my Reading Challenge, but I decided to make it part of the Book List.

Here’s a video from Audible about this Audiobook:

Enjoy your saturday!
