Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice

Book ReviewsAndrea SmithComment

Pride and Prejudice. One of the most iconic stories ever told by Jane Austen. I've been wanting to read the classics since, like forever, but since getting married having a baby blah blah blah life has been consuming. My good friend recommended Audible which is a website dedicated to audiobooks. They have thousands of books available, and amazing performers reading the books. This is my second audio book and I really enjoyed it. At first it took me a while to get into the story, but I think it's because I listened to Jane Eyre first, and that story is a dark, redemptive book. So going from that to a book to a very light hearted novel, threw me off a little. But eventually I got into the story and was swept away by all the crazy and beautifully written characters. I was not disappointed with this book, and I highly recommend it especially for the times we are in today.

Charlotte Brontes' Jane Eyre

A story of betrayal, anger, love, heartbreak and redemption. Jane Eyre is a must read classic. Thandie Newton gives a brilliant performance in the audio book as she captures you with her narration of this story. This was my first audiobook I signed up for and I couldn't wait until it was my son's nap time. This story is so good, I cried, smiled and gripped the couch at every turn of this book. The movie has nothing on this book. If you are considering audio books do it! You will not be disappointed.
