Young Adult Young Adult • 3.75 hrs. • Abridged • © 1996

This delightful production will appeal to all audiences—especially its intended one: young adults new to the classics. While so many study guides to notable literature offer little more than plot points, this abridged novel and its accompanying materials ask students to engage with the literature, honing close reading skills and acquiring valuable insights into active reading. An adept performance by Jenny Agutter, with her lively zest for the novel's keen wit, affords any listener a warm welcome to Austen's gem, while both abridged and unabridged PDF versions complete the experience. Musical interludes help the abridgment along, keeping the reading smooth, though not seamless. Complete and accessible, this production promotes learning as well as the great literature itself.
