Posted on

Rosamund Pike is revisiting her roots.

The Gone Girl star has teamed up with Amazon’s audiobook division Audible to narrate the Jane Austen classic Pride & Prejudice, and PEOPLE has an exclusive first listen to the recording.

The clip below is from chapter three, when the curmudgeonly Mr. Darcy skeptically eyes protagonist Elizabeth Bennett at a ball.

Between her delightful British accent and experience with the material (she starred in the 2005 film adaptation opposite Keira Knightley), Pike, 36, makes for an excellent, entertaining narrator.
