Jane Austen once compared her writing to painting on a little bit of ivory, 2 inches square. Readers of Persuasion will discover that neither her skill for delicate, ironic observations on social custom, love, and marriage nor her ability to apply a sharp focus lens to English manners and morals has deserted her in her final finished work. This collection of the early works of Jane Austen uniquely displays the emerging talent of a brilliant and observant young woman. Completed before Austen was fifteen, the works are astonishing in their maturity.

JANE AUSTEN by Sir Walter Scott. JANE AUSTEN: NATURAL HISTORIAN by Robert Lynd. Darcy and Bingley again are much more 'likeable' (to use Lady Queensberry's word) than the colourless Edward Ferrars and the stiff-jointed Colonel Brandon

JANE AUSTEN by Sir Walter Scott. ARCHBISHOP WHATELY ON JANE AUSTEN by Richard Whately. TO JANE AUSTEN by Andrew Lang. REALISM: JANE AUSTEN by Richard Burton. Darcy and Bingley again are much more 'likeable' (to use Lady Queensberry's word) than the colourless Edward Ferrars and the stiff-jointed Colonel Brandon. Yet it might not unfairly be contended that there is more fidelity to what Mr. Thomas Hardy has termed 'life's little ironies' in Miss Austen's disposal of the two Miss Dashwoods than there is in her disposal of the heroines of Pride and Prejudice.

Jane Austen's novels have proved to be enduring favorites in every medium in which they appear, whether books or movies, comic books or TV mini-series. Works like Emma, Persuasion, and Pride and Prejudice present incomparable portraits of marriageable but discriminating young women, the scoundrels and gentlemen who entrance and confound them, their scheming mothers and hapless fathers—all set in the well-mannered world of early 19th-century British country life. With this collection, fans can enjoy the books anew in audio format. Joanna Lumley, whose Patsy made Absolutely Fabulous a cult hit, aptly showcases the mordant wit of Pride and Prejudice. Anna Massey brings character and vigor to her dramatizations of Persuasion, Sense and Sensibility, and Northanger Abbey. Belinda Lang offers a stylish interpretation of Emma, while Harriet Walter evokes Austen in a different mode in her reading of the little-known novella, The Watsons. Musical backgrounds enhance the listener's experience.
Reviews:
  • Gindian
Pretty books with cloth binding but the print font is extremely tiny. I don't require reading glasses and can read it but would not enjoy it because of size. I ordered these as a gift for an elderly person and there is no way she would be able to read them. Returned immediately.

These are excellent quality books. The covers are cloth type and they would make a great gift for anyone who is a Jane Austen fan or just a reader.

I bought this set of audio CD's for my wife so that we could listen to them while traveling in the car. I believe that the set is good for that purpose. We are both fans of Jane Austen (my wife actually writes Jane Austen fan fiction) and know her stories well. So, it was disappointing to find that this collection was 'abridged'.

But for the purpose of being able to listen and enjoy Jane Austen's work while traveling this is well worth the price.

For me, I have learned to do a better job of research when looking into a product, but I have enjoyed very much listening to these productions.

Enjoy listening!

There are two Disc ones for Emma, and no disc two. I put in the second disc and to my surprise it was disc one again. Disappointing.
  • Phobism
This was a Christmas gift for my daughter. She loves the classics. And listens to them over and over on her commutes.
  • Flower
Beautiful design! Fits nicely in my hand, or bag for on the go reading. wonderful engaging stories, of course, and looks great on my shelf! Might buy more from this publisher!!
  • Rolling Flipper
These recordings are abridged. I have a reading of Emma on 11 CDs. This collection does it in 2. This is a drawback, and it is not evident from the description. The box only mentions it on the back at the lower left although it would be evident from the CD count, I suppose. On the plus side the set includes an unabridged reading of The Watsons, and a CD of readings of Jane Austen's letters, both of which I have not seen elsewhere available in audio. I was looking for Sense and Sensibility on CD. It is her, abridged, in a 2 CD set, also. I'm torn between opening the box, i.e. accepting the item, for the Watsons and Letters, and to hold my S&S desires until I can find a full version; and sending it back. Watch for a further review if I open the box.

Ok, I did open it and listened to the Watsons (unabridged), Sense & Sensibility (abridged) and Pride and Prejudice (abridged). Here's the deal: You don't read Jane Austen for the plot. You read it because of Jane Austen's writing. You listen to it for the same reason. This means there is nothing at all to recommend an abridged version. Here's the problem in a nutshell. At one point in Pride and Prejudice, Elizabeth Bennet regrets all of the saucy speeches she ever made to Mr. Darcy. We regret them too, but for a different reason. She wishes Mr. Darcy had never heard them. Had he been listening to the abridged version, he never would have heard them because they were all cut out. Parts of the abridgement make no sense at all. When Ms. Bingley says Elizabeth is one of those women who curry favor with men by running down members of her own sex in the abridged version, this makes no sense whatever because we have not heard the conversation that led it to it in the novel.

I do not recommend buying this set at all. Had I not opened it, I would return it. There is no point in an abridged Jane Austen. That said, I note this is the only audio version of Sense & Sensibility I can find, except the Project Guttenberg rendition which seems to have each chapter read by a diffent volunteer - a reading that is not up to the performance standard of the professional sets. It is also the only audio version of the Watsons, and the excerpts from what seem to be the early practice sessions of a young Jane for an epistolary novel.These are presented as leters by Jane Austen, but I don't believe that is accurate in the sense of letters being written to someone else. These are letters which practice writing on a brief topic, and they have interesting echoes in her published novels. They are not the equal of any of the writing in the novels, however.

I should probably give this set No Stars, but I don't think that's an option. So, 1 star for the otherwise unavailable material.
