Wanda McCaddon delivers a delightful narration in this production of Austen's beloved first novel. McCaddon's characterizations are as lively as they are exact: From impetuous Marianne to the reserved Elinor; from dashing, willful Willoughby to the long-suffering, noble Colonel Brandon, her reading beautifully captures Austen's vivid creations. McCaddon's deep understanding of this story appears to be accompanied by an equally deep pleasure in it. It seems as though she relishes every word as she brings to life the story's many dramas--from Elinor's quietly hidden heartache to Marianne's heart-on-her-sleeve heartbreak. Even if you've read the book and seen the movies, McCaddon still brings fresh insights to Austen's story and characters. J.C.G. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine
