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.

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