Publisher's Summary

Jane Austen's first novel - published posthumously in 1818 - tells the story of Catherine Morland and her dangerously sweet nature, innocence, and sometime self-delusion. Though Austen's fallible heroine is repeatedly drawn into scrapes while vacationing at Bath and during her subsequent visit to Northanger Abbey, Catherine eventually triumphs, blossoming into a discerning woman who learns truths about love, life, and the heady power of literature. The satirical novel pokes fun at the gothic novel while earnestly emphasizing caution to the female sex.

horrible narration

Great story, horrible narration. He sounds bored with himself. Glad it was less than a dollar.

Narrator was horrible. Very hard to understand. I could not finish the story. The story was also slow to become interesting.

Sorry to say because I love the book. Couldn't hear well. Very low even with earphones but didn't matter. So bad I quit at Chapter 2. Dull.

I had to stop listening 15 minutes in!

It cost less than a dollar, so it's not a great loss monetarily, but I really couldn't listen for another second. The narrator did fine with the first 3 or 4 voices, but when these were spent, began speaking slowly (soooo slowly) to differentiate the latter characters with the former, and sounded drugged! I couldn't take it! Like I said though, it's not much money lost. Maybe I'll download it another day and listen to it for a laugh. Today was not that day. :)
