First Listen: Rosamund Pike Narrates Pride & Prejudice Recording 10 Years After Appearing in the Film
The story "gives people, in surprising ways, a huge amount of joy," says Pike
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.[soundcloud url="https://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/225577403?secret_token=s-SGr1C" params="auto_play=false&hide_related=false&visual=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&color=ff5500" width="100%" height="166" iframe="true" /]
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.
Audible’s Pride & Prejudice audiobook featuring Pike is available for preorder and will be released Dec. 8.
