Thought to be Austen's earliest novel, this audio version is read tremendously by Anna Massey, a much respected and prolific theatre, television, and film actress. Download and start listening now!

    " This is my favorite Austen book by far! "

    " I've always liked Northanger Abbey and I enjoyed it more on rereading it than I remember having liked it to begin with. Certainly the main character is incredibly silly at times, but her sweetness of nature more than mitigates that. In addition, I remember knowing adolescents who were equally silly with that same heightened sense of drama which made the character sadly realistic to me. The story is engaging and furthermore, the romantic hero of Henry Tilney is my favorite of all of Austen's leading men. His intelligence and humor and genuineness all make me think I would prefer knowing him to Darcy any day of the week. "

    " Being by the great Jane Austen, it's inevitable that this book be thoroughly entertaining and funny, with wonderful characters that you come to really love or hate. However, while I think we're meant to love the heroine, she's so ridiculous that I found it hard to put up with hearing her thoughts for a hundred or so pages. I know the book is satirical, but Catherine Morland's silliness just goes too far sometimes. "

    " I really did want to like this book, but the slow pace and 2-dimensional characters left me speed reading through to the very end, just so I could finish it. Perhaps it is the style of the book to be needlessly drawn out but I found it boring and a chore. I much preferred other Austen works such as Pride and Prejudice. "
