The Perfect Gift for the Jane Austen fan in your life
Jane Austen as she was meant to be heard!
Award-winning narrator Alison Larkin presents The Complete Novels of Jane Austen – the 200th anniversary audio edition.
“…narrating the novels of Jane Austen reminded me that no matter how much the world changes, human nature never does.” (Alison Larkin)
Ever since Colin Firth’s Mr Darcy emerged from the lake in the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, the novels of Jane Austen have become more popular than ever, delighting millions of fans all over the world. Now, Alison Larkin’s critically acclaimed narrations of Austen’s six completed novels are brought together in this very special 200th anniversary audio edition. “Alison Larkin’s narration will captivate listeners from the first sentence”, raves AudioFile magazine about the Earphones Award-winning recording of Sense and Sensibility, which starts the collection.
Hailed by The Times as “marvelously light footed hugely entertaining”, Alison Larkin is the perfect vessel to bring the deft, satirical novels of Jane Austen to sparkling new life.
Title and end music: “The Lonely Ash Grove”, sung by Alison Larkin.
“Raised in England by adoptive parents, Alison Larkin was actually born in America. She herself is a comic writer and performer and she approaches Austen as a satirist…genuine theatrical skill…sustained comic creations. The voice reveals all.”
–The New Yorker
