The two qualities that comprise the title of this classic are brought vividly to the fore by Juliet Stevenson's narration. Sensible Elinor and her sister, the sensitive Marianne, embark on a variety of social adventures as they both seek true love. Stevenson, a narrator who makes the reader recognize the voices she creates long before the text reveals their identities, portrays the numerous characters with alacrity. With humor and humanity, Stevenson makes this lengthy production interesting and fun; her clipped tones and wry notes infuse the text with life. Solid plots and fine character development like Austen's shine in an audio production; SENSE AND SENSIBILITY is a brilliant means of partaking in the classics.
