Pride & Prejudice by Jane Austen, read by Carolyn Seymour

Pride and Prejudice - Jane Austen, Carolyn Seymour

I freely admit that there isn’t anything special about the plot and story in Pride & Prejudice, but it’s just so well done that it’s still one of my favourites. Austen brings this ordinary story to life. There’s a liveliness and wit to her dialogue and characters that is hard to equal then or now.


This is, of course, going to count as my “Favorite re-read” square for the summer book bingo.
