Publisher's Summary

Young and susceptible, Catherine Morland expects dark secrets and many dangers to be lurking in the hidden recesses of Northanger Abbey. In fact, the real obstacles lying in her path are more mundane, but just as serious as her imagined horrors.

Thought to be Austen's earliest novel, this audio version is read tremendously by Anna Massey, a much respected and prolific theatre, television, and film actress.

    "Awesome! Love it!"
    Would you listen to Northanger Abbey again? Why?

    Oh yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Because Jane Austen rocks!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Isabella Thorpe: A manipulative and self-serving young woman on a quest to obtain a well-off husband; at the time, marriage was the accepted way for young women of a certain class to become "established" with a household of their own (as opposed to becoming a dependent spinster), and Isabella lacks most assets (such as wealth or family connections to bring to a marriage) that would make her a "catch" on the "marriage market". Upon her arrival in Bath she is without acquaintance, leading her to immediately form a quick friendship with Catherine Morland. Additionally, when she learns that Catherine is the sister to James Morland (whom Isabella suspects to be worth more financially than he is in reality), she goes to every length to ensure a connection between the two families.


    Have you listened to any of Anna Massey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Oh yeah, just what I like. She has a great reading voice and does a lot of great voices that she does.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!
