Northanger Abbey


Read by LibriVox Volunteers

(3.9 stars; 67 reviews)

Northanger Abbey is a hilarious parody of 18th century gothic novels. The heroine, 17-year old Catherine, has been reading far too many “horrid” gothic novels and would love to encounter some gothic-style terror — but the superficial world of Bath proves hazardous enough. (Summary by Kara)

Reviews

Pick one reader!

(4 stars)

The writings of Jane Austin are always interesting and in many instances quite fun. However, having 20+ readers for 31 chapters makes for difficult listening. With a single reader you get comfortable with his or her rhythm and the sorry flows well. Multiple readers makes following dialog difficult and tedious.

Readers are not the best

(1 stars)

It is difficult to follow the plot with these readers

so outdated

(1.5 stars)

Gesine shouldn't be allowed to read. She is awful

(1 stars)

Each chapter is read by a different volunteer, which is jarring.

Great audio book!

(4 stars)

I really love the book. A couple of the narrators could have been better. Otherwise I'd give it 5 Stars.
