Sintesi dell'editore

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.

Masterful dramatization of a wonderful book

The book is wonderful and Anna Massey is ever amazing. The audio book chapters are not properly separated, and instead the audio "chapters" are lengthy periods of time (45 minutes+) that make it difficult to navigate.

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.

Bad Narrator

I've always like Jane Austen and have read, listened to or watched performances of several of her stories. But with this one I couldn't get past listening for a half hour. The narrator's voice and inflection was borderline to screeching. Never did finish listening to it.
