We mentioned in the Jane Austen News a week or two back that Audible Studios will soon be releasing (it’s due on September 4th) a new dramatised audio adaptation of Jane Austen’s Emma. However, it seems that us Austen fans don’t have to wait even that long for a new audiobook recording of one of Jane’s novels.
Rosamund Pike, who played Jane Bennet in the 2005 film adaptation of Pride and Prejudice, has narrated the newly released production of Sense and Sensibility. She’s previously narrated Pride and Prejudice for Audible Studios, and done a fantastic job, so we’re very pleased to hear her new recording.
Below is a behind-the-scenes interview in which she explains why she adores Jane’s work and why it’s still so powerful to this day.
