This is a minor novel by Jane Austen. It's short in length but has the same wit as her other books. I found it delightful to listen to. The narrator, Juliet Stevenson, was perfect in her rendition of the character's voices, including the male voices.

There is no such thing as a bad Jane Austen novel, and Northanger Abbey is good. However, in my opinion, the herorine is not in the same class as Elizabeth (Pride and Prejudice), Emma (Emma) , Ann (Persuasion) or either of the sisters in Sense and Sensability. Maybe I don't like her as well because this was abridged and I did not get her full character, but I am afraid that she is just not as bright, clever, likeable or sensible as other Austen female characters. That is why I gave four stars rather than five. One day, when I don't have anything else to read, I may try reading the unabridged book of Northanger Abbey because Jane Austen is my favorite author of all time and surely she didn't let me down with Northanger Abbey!
