Few novelists have conveyed the subtleties and nuances of their own social milieu with the wit and insight of Jane Austen.

Through her vivacious and spirited heroines and their circle, Austen vividly portrays English middle-class life as the eighteenth century came to a close and the nineteenth century began. Each of the novels is a love story and a story about marriage-marriage for love, for financial security, for social status. But they are not romances; ironic, comic, and wise, they are masterly evocations of the society Jane Austen observed. This beautiful volume covers the literary career of one of England's finest prose stylists of any century.Review:
Eight hours longer even than Naxos' complete Sherlock Holmes, this has got to be the audiobook box set of the decade! All six complete major novels are read here in mellifluous and engagingly vital voices which, however many times you listen, instantly draw you into Jane Austen's world. --Rachel Redford, The Observer
Together for the first time, the complete and unabridged audio recordings of Jane Austen's novels handsomely presented in a boxed set. Counting 69 CDs and running over 83 hours, this is the Holy Grail of Austen audio book recording as only Naxos could present with superb readings by Juliet Stevenson, Emilia Fox, and Anna Bentinck. Included are Austen's six major novels, the novella Lady Susan and her unfinished novels Sanditon and The Watsons. This is definitely the essential collector's item. Nuff said! --Laurel Ann, austenprose.wordpress.com
Top of the boxed sets is Jane Austen: The Complete Novels, read by Juliet Stevenson, Emilia Fox and Anna Bentinck, flaunting alongside the favourites of television drama the less-familiar Northanger Abbey and Lady Susan. Winner of the Telegraph's Audiobooks of the Year. --Carole Mansur, Telegraph
