Trade Ed. Alison Larkin Presents 2017
DD ISBN $24.95
Jane Austen's classic novel about sisters Elinor and Marianne has been produced on audio many times and featured many talented narrators. This version stands out as one of the best. Alison Larkin's narration will captivate listeners from the first sentence. Her delicate voice and perfect English accent sweep the listener back in time, right into the lives of the characters. Austen's nineteenth-century writing style flows off Larkin's tongue, making the dense passages easy to understand. She effortlessly conveys the many humorous scenes, capturing the pompous gentry and their ridiculous (even to them, apparently) social conventions. Two passages from a book by Austen's fifth-generation great-niece add a nice touch at the end of the story. M.M.G.
