Three elements make Jane Austen's work so appealing: the love stories, the character portraits, and the wonderful prose with which she presents them (and through which much character information is implied). It's a pleasure to report that Annette Crosbie captures the cadence of Austen's prose perfectly. Crosbie distinguishes clearly among the many characters without losing or distorting the overarching perspective of Austen's prose. What's more, she shifts delivery and pacing with each character's dialogue in ways that allow Austen's rich humor to come through vividly. The result will please Austen fans and create new ones.
