Rosamund Pike to Narrate Pride and Prejudice Audiobook

Before starring in Gone Girl, and all the acclaim and attention she gained as a result, Rosamund Pike was perhaps best known for her role as Jane Bennet in another book adaptation: the 2005 Pride and Prejudice film, which stars Keira Knightly as Elizabeth Bennet.  If that didn’t already cement her inclusion in Jane Austen’s world, Pike is the narrator of a new audiobook version of the beloved novel.  The audiobook is currently available for preorder and will be released on December 8th. 

If you want a taste of what to expect, check out the clip below—taken from chapter three of the novel, when Mr. Darcy first sees Elizabeth at a ball.
