EMMA 200th Anniversary Edition

by | Read by Alison Larkin

Classics • 16.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1815

There's a vintage feel to Alison Larkin's narration of this Austen favorite. The bell-like quality of her sweetly accented voice harkens back to another, quieter, time. However, her delivery of this much-loved matchmaking story offers a flexibility that is contemporary and easy to hear. Larkin's vocals can be precious or blustery, proper or pompous, depending on which character she occupies, and she creates distinctions between each with skill. The pace is brisk, and Larkin's treatment of the light humor in the novel is so subtle it could be missed by the distracted listener. Jaunty musical interludes grace the transitions between chapters, adding to the quaint charm of this production. L.B.F. © AudioFile 2015, Portland, Maine [Published: DECEMBER 2015]
