*Let's face it, Librivox volunteers are not exactly professional readers. While almost 50% of the people who read Mansfield Park were satisfactory, the rest were stultifyingly bad. Only my extreme love for Jane's words and my innate stubbornness kept me listening in some instances.
Update: For free downloads of Persuasion by professional voice actor, Nikolle Doolin, click here. She has also thoughtfully included a synopsis of every chapter and a list of the primary characters on her site.
