Sense and sensibility eAudio Book Sense and sensibility
The first of Jane Austen's novels to be published, Sense and sensibility marked the debut of England's primary novelist of manners. Convinced that "3 or 4 families in a country village is the very thing to work upon," Austen created a brilliant tragicomedy of flirtation and folly. Genteel dinner parties at a stately manor and romantic walks through luxuriant Devonshire draw two attractive sisters into the manipulations of landed gentry determined to marry well.

Austen, Jane, 1775-1817.

Emma eAudio Book Emma
Emma is a humorous portrayal of a heroine whose injudicious interferences in the life of a young parlour-boarder in a neighboring village often lead to substantial mortification. Delightfully funny, Emma displays the shrewd wit and delicate irony which made Jane Austen a master of the English novel. Although Austen thought that only she would like her witty, fanciful, self-deluded heroine, Emma has gained the affection of generations of readers.

Austen, Jane, 1775-1817.

Persuasion eAudio Book Persuasion
The last novel completed by Jane Austen before she died in her early forties, Persuasion is often thought to be the story of the author's own lost love. The book's heroine, Anne Elliot, encounters Frederick Wentworth, the man to whom she was once engaged when he was a young naval officer. Now a captain, Wentworth is courting the rash young Louisa Musgrove. The happy ending is not one in which Austen would ever play a part.

The red badge of courage eAudio Book The red badge of courage
Through Henry Fleming, Crane creates a great and realistic study of the mind of an inexperienced soldier trapped in the fury and turmoil of war. Fleming dashes into battle, at first is tormented by fear, and later is bolstered with courage in time for the final confrontation. This is a superb and exciting story that places the listener in the midst of the Civil War.

Crane, Stephen, 1871-1900.

Great expectations eAudio Book Great expectations

In his youth he is influenced by the eccentric Miss Havisham, who was jilted on her wedding night and who has brought up her adopted niece Estella to hate men.

The two are befriended by a man whose wife hires Little Dorrit as a seamstress. When William Dorrit inherits a fortune, he escapes the Marshalsea. The family, assuming a station befitting heir wealth, travel to Italy. Meantime, their benefactor falls onto hard times all his own when he becomes the victim of a gigantic fraud perpetrated by an eminent financier. When he is sentenced to the Marshalsea, Little Dorrit finds him there. The relationship that develops between them reveals the counterpoint of ambition juxtaposed with humility, acquisitiveness contrasted with generosity, and regret despite good fortune held up for examination against the brighter light of optimism despite dire circumstance.

Dickens, Charles, 1812-1870

David Copperfield eAudio Book David Copperfield
