ELIGIBLE A Modern Retelling of Pride and Prejudice

by | Read by Cassandra Campbell

Fiction • 13.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2016

Austen fans and newcomers alike will enjoy this contemporary take on PRIDE AND PREJUDICE, set in Cincinnati. Narrator Cassandra Campbell's lively narration complements Sittenfeld's sharply observed and witty updates. She voices Darcy, now an accomplished, if snobby, neurosurgeon, in a dry and understated style, contrasting him beautifully with the often exasperated and indignant Liz, a magazine writer. Especially notable is Campbell's handling of party scenes, in which the five Bennet sisters and assorted other characters interact in rapid-fire dialogue. To Campbell's credit, each character remains clearly distinguishable through subtle vocal variations. Sittenfeld's retelling is smart and funny, and Campbell's performance highlights the novel's many strengths. E.C. © AudioFile 2016, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2016]
