"Pride and Prejudice" is a key title for the new Naxos AudioBooks series "Young Adult Classics". An abridged recording with music makes this Regency novel much more accessible to the 21st century young adult keen to get to grips with the classics. "Pride and Prejudice" is a leading title for "Young Adult Classics", being one of the pillars of English Literature, and Jenny Agutter's friendly reading bridges the gap between the films and the book. This edition includes a bonus CD-ROM which contains the abridged and unabridged texts, and Top Teacher's Notes by high profile English teacher Francis Gilbert.

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.
