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.

Love the story, hate the voice.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I love this book, but the voice of the reader annoyed me, and her voices for the male characters were stupid.

Love a bit of Austen to drown out Kisstory

The clipped tones of Anna Massey drolly trot out the wisdoms of Austen's prose. The self condemnation of Miss. Moreland's censure is wry & pitiable through the telling. Lovely stuff.

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.
