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.

It was not my taste, but it is a very excellent audio book. For me, it is last place among my likes.
I would have liked more of a climax woth what happens with the characters and events.
The scene when the main character is lied to and wronged.
Elegancy is overrated.
I love the narrator!
As a first time listener of classical literature, I can only say that I was taken to a place in time which was new to me. What I liked best about the story was, being narrated the story. This made the classical literature much more interesting than my experiences previously in reading the print version. I also enjoyed Catherine in the story, I found myself relating to her innocent character, in some ways.
Catherine, the main character. I enjoyed her innocence and insightful comments, which amused me at times.
This narrator brought the story back to that place & time in history in which it took place. Her voice & inflections helped with following the story, and made it much more enjoyable & engaging to me over reading the book. She had just the right voice for this story.
This story and narrator have inspired me to dig deeper into classical literature audio books.
Yes. Listening to this book was very engaging, I really felt as though I was right there with the main character Catherine.
A soothing beautiful rhythm that takes you away to the time and place of the story.I was completely absorbed into the novel.
It wasn't just one moment but more Catherine's anticipation for the dances in Bath and then going to Northanger Abbey,
What can one say about an Austen classic that has not been gushed before ... Nothing, other than listen again and again. As fresh today as when it was first in print in 1816.
The story, a light-hearted parody of Gothic novels, was meant to be read aloud as family entertainment. Given that, it is wonderfully suited for Audible. The narrator, Mary Sarah Agliotta, does the story justice with her clear and engaging narration.
The directness with which Austen addresses the reader is fascinating and reveals her own thoughts about various topics.
Ms. Agliotta did a great job. Her narration is well-paced and engaging. Her voice is clear, soothing and otherwise quite pleasant.
Following the struggles and adventures of Catherine throughout this fantastic parody was entertaining.
