    How is everyone doing? I just finished this today. I listened to a wonderful audiobook version and it just flew by. All the times I have read S&S it has never been a favorite, but for some reason listening to the audiobook made me appreciate it so much more. It's definitely jumped in my estimation. :)

    Yes, me too!! Who was the narrator for yours? I used a library copy and they only had an old one ready by Flo Gibson (Recorded Books), but I really liked it.

    I was surprised how much more I liked the book this time around.

    On to the movie versions! I started the old BBC one ... ... ...

    I listened to this version on LibriVox. :D The narrator was Elizabeth Klett, who I used to follow in the knitting world when she had a blog by the name of Gloriana. I dunno if she still does the blog... but I remembered she narrated a bunch of books on LibriVox so decided to give one a try. She is fantastic! I really recommend her Jane Austen recordings.
