Publisher's Summary

Catherine Morland goes to Bath for the season as the guest of Mr. and Mrs. Allen, and there she meets the eccentric General Tilney, his son Henry Tilney and his daughter Elanor Tilney. Catherine is invited to the Tilney's home, Northanger Abbey, where she imagines numerous gruesome secrets surrounding the General and his house. Henry proves that her suspicions have no substance, and while she is still recovering from the humiliation, she finds herself ordered out of the house by the General. She returns home and is followed by Henry. He explains that the General, mistakenly believing her to be penniless, had been anxious to keep her away from his son. Restored to a sensible humor by the truth, the General finally gives his blessing to Henry's marriage to Catherine.

Narrator thinks she's reading to small children?

This is the first bad review I've had. The narrator really sounds as though she is reading to a three year old. Her narration is so slow, and she punc-tu-ates
e-ve-ery word as though you were going to be asked to spell them back to her after the reading! The 'man' voice she has for the male characters is laughable and one individual is totally indistinguishable from another. I bought this audio book to help me with a Literature course at uni, and so I've had to listen to her narration enough times to drive me insane!
