Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

This Penguin Classic is performed by Indira Varma, who has starred in Luther and Game of Thrones. This definitive recording includes an introduction by Vivien Jones. 

When Elizabeth Bennet first meets eligible bachelor Fitzwilliam Darcy, she thinks him arrogant and conceited; he is indifferent to her good looks and lively mind. When she later discovers that Darcy has involved himself in the troubled relationship between his friend Bingley and her beloved sister Jane, she is determined to dislike him more than ever. In the sparkling comedy of manners that follows, Jane Austen shows the folly of judging by first impressions and superbly evokes the friendships, gossip and snobberies of provincial middle-class life.

Indira Varma gives this classic the reading it deserves

I have never been satisfied with any of the P&P narrators available on Audible until now.
When I realized Ms. Varma was not going to screech her way though Mrs. Bennet’s character, as others do, I was sold. It’s not necessary to make Mrs. Bennet sound like a fishwife to convey her failings, and it makes for an unpleasant listen.

The subtle voice characterizations throughout the novel were much appreciated. No exaggeratedly low pitch for male voices. No need to strive to make a character like Mr. Collins sound even more foolish. It’s all there in the writing.

This was a pleasure from beginning to end. I look forward to more Audible books read by this narrator.

Great book, bad introduction

One of my favorite books, with captivating vocabulary and style. Very well read; there are however awkward pauses where Jane Austen never named a certain character or place. The introduction (not by Jane Austen) at the back of the book tries to make the story out to be politically loaded; very sour note at the end of a happy read.

Perfect narration

I have always known the story, read the book - years ago, seen the film. But, finally I have taken the time to listen.....& listen properly. I'm desperately sad to have finished this and desperately sad that Indira Varma hasn't recorded everything that Jane Austen wrote, P&P was perfection and the narration was perfection. Please persuade (deliberate pun) her to do another one, or better still, all of them.
