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 3, when the curmudgeonly Mr. Darcy skeptically eyes protagonist Elizabeth Bennet 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. 

Audible’s Pride & Prejudice audiobook featuring Pike is available for preorder and will be released Dec. 8.
