Classics • 6.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 1811

Jane Austen's first novel is a romantic adventure governed by the restraints of proper eighteenth-century British manners and featuring the two Dashwood sisters: cautious, sensible Elinor and impetuous, hopelessly romantic Marianne. British actress and seasoned audiobook narrator Wanda McCaddon gives a spirited reading, using skillful phrasing to interpret the text. She gives the characters distinct voices and captures their personalities perfectly. The twisted plot of loves lost and loves gained and, most importantly, the wit and subtle irony of Austen's writing are intact. Avid Austen readers will respond to McCaddon's fresh, thoughtful presentation--perhaps wishing it were unabridged. C.R.A. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: MAR 97]
