Publisher's Summary

Catherine Morland reads tales of Gothic romance, yet leads a country life in Wiltshire. When she travels to Bath, she meets and falls in love with Henry Tilney. She is invited by his sister and father to stay at Northanger Abbey, where she meets all the trappings of Gothic horror that she has read about. Fortunately, she has her own good sense and irresistible but unsentimental hero, Henry Tilney.

A pleasing but too serious narrator

I enjoyed the story but I felt the narrator was too serious a reader, especially in comedic moments. Also she made the playful and teasing Henry Tilney sound very severe and thus the book took on a more serious note than what this gothic parody might have required. Nonetheless, her voice is pleasing though perhaps too serious and her proper enunciation slows down the reading. If you read along with the narrator you may read faster and thus may need to increase the speed to 1.25x though it does sound a bit too fast and chipmunk-ish.

Funny Social Satire

The gentle fun that Austen pokes at addicts of Gothic literature is very apropos of today - 'plus ca change, plus ca meme chose!' Very enjoyable.

Love the story, hate the voice.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I love this book, but the voice of the reader annoyed me, and her voices for the male characters were stupid.

Love a bit of Austen to drown out Kisstory

The clipped tones of Anna Massey drolly trot out the wisdoms of Austen's prose. The self condemnation of Miss. Moreland's censure is wry & pitiable through the telling. Lovely stuff.
