Publisher's Summary

In Northanger Abbey, a young woman's penchant for sensational Gothic novels leads to misunderstandings in the matters of the heart. Austen's first, this is considered by many to be among her most charming novels.

Couldn't listen to the end!

Would you try another book from Jane Austen and/or Mary Sarah Agliotta?

No!

What did you like best about this story?

Jane Austen is great!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator has no idea about the right pronunciation of places in England. She had no emotional involvment with the story. Very poor rendering.

I couldn't even get through this ....

I was looking forward to an engaging rendition of the story, but the narration was AWFUL. The narrator spoke quickly, but extremely softly, as if she were trying to hurry through the narration as quickly as possible without waking someone sleeping in the other room. Raising the volume didn't help because she would occasionally punctuate with a loud word - this was not a good rendition. I clearly see why it is the least expensive one on here.

Northanger Abbey

I don't wish to be too negative, but on this occasion I will just have to be. I am not sure why, but the narrator for this book seemed, in my opinion, totally unsuitable for this story. A very 'odd' accent didn't help as it clashed with the rather 'old-fashioned' style of writing and language used, indeed in some of the passages she seemed to become totally tongue-tied. If you can, I would recommend trying another version of this book before this one.

Incredible pronunciations

Would you try another book written by Jane Austen or narrated by Mary Sarah Agliotta?

Austen yes, agliotta... no. Her pronunciations are all over the place and the story is riddled with editing mistakes and repeated lines. It's the most unprofessional audiobook I've ever heard.

Audio copy not good

This was a poor audio edition. The speed of the reading too fast but to adjust to .75 made it too slow, there were repeated phrases and lines which were annoying.
