Tres Bon!

(5 Sterne)

This is the fifth or sixth novel I've listened to that was read by Elizabeth Klett. While I still prefer the tactile feeling of the printed page I must say that listening to Ms. Klett has been an eye-opener. The first and last work I listened to was John Irving's Garp which if I remember correctly was some twenty audio cassettes. I was underwhelmed. I don't think of Elizabeth Klett so much as a reader but rather as a performer who clearly deserves an Oscar or a Tony for her readings. In this particular novel she is indeed Jane Eyre come alive. Notice I have not said anything about her mastery of French pronunciation which if standing alone would be a bravura performance. I am in awe.

An absolute pleasure and delight!!

I was searching for a classic I had not read or listened to, when I stumbled upon this book. I'd never heard Eliabeth Klett narrate a book before. I can honestly say, I don't think I've ever enjoyed a narrator more, save my childhood stories from loved ones. (And I have very much enjoyed another librovox regular, so this is high praise indeed!) Every character had a perfect accent and voice. I told my elderly parents about it and expressed that this was better than reading the book, because the voices were so vivid, it was like they were in the room with me. And yet it was better than a movie, because it held every word of the book. Thank you so much for your dedicated reading of this book. I look forward to searching for other books you have read to us!

One of the best books ever written. I story of true moral characters and deep love mixed in with real-life trials. This is one of my favorite books and I loved hearing it read by this wonderful reader.

Excellent Narration

(5 Sterne)

This review is entirely dedicated to Elizabeth's narration. It was only due to her I was able to complete Jane Eyre. Much before I tried it on audible, narrated by Thandie Newton and she bored me out within 3 hours. But seeing the positive acclaim that this book have I refused to give up on it and thought to try again later. Luckily I found it here and thought to give it a try and not once I ever found it boring. For me Elizabeth Klett was the narrator that helped me complete this book.

My daughter and I loved this performance. Miss Klett's voce and Bronte's narrative made some wonderful car trip and bedtime story memories for us. I thought Helen's story might be too emoruonal, but it wasn't that, but rather Jane's departure from Thirnfield that had her sobbing. But the ending made up for all. Thank you, Elizabeth, for helping me introduce great literature to my daughter. "I like the feelings of the book. I like the reader. I like how she read it slowly and spoke clearly. Chapter 38 was the best." -- Mae, age 6

It was read well by Elizabeth Klett, but I just don't like the ending of the story! Spoilers: I hated Rochester and I feel like even though Jane did make her own decision to marry him in the end, he had sort of manipulated her into loving him in the first half of the book. Still, I think Jane is a good character and there were some quotes I really liked.

Excellent reader. Good intonation and expression without being distracting. I had never tried to read Jane Eyre in print, because I never knew what it was about and it seemed so long. It is a wonderful book! I see why it is a classic. Chapters 23 and 27 were so thrilling I could not stop listening and raced to the end in just a day or two.

Amazing!

I truly admire Ms. Klett's patience. she's read every line, every chapter with so much passion. She even changed her voice for each character, I must say she's a brilliant voice actor or an audiobook reader. Listening to her was a privilege.
