Easy to listen to audiobook version of Pride and Prejudice, narrated by British, Jane Lapotaire, and published by Durkin Hayes Publishing, 1992.
No description as to the duration of the reading from beginning to conclusion.

I enjoyed the continuation of the story each time I hopped in my car for an errand. Ms Lapotaire's voice sketches of the varied characters added to the tale. Her characterizations weren't extreme. Her British accent was a definite plus for this listener, realistically bringing the story to life as I'd imagine from the pen and life of an English author, as was Jane Austen.

Hearing the story added to my interest in it, keeping my attention despite my familiarity. Particularly, scenes with Wickham and Lizzie coming to mind; insinuating his way into her good graces, interrogating her upon her return from Pemberley, triumphing as her new brother-in-law.

A story listening pleasure I'd recommend if you have the opportunity to find a copy.
