Northanger Abbey (version 2)

Gelesen von Elizabeth Klett

(4,658 Sterne; 1123 Bewertungen)

Northanger Abbey follows Catherine Morland and family friends Mr. and Mrs. Allen as they visit Bath, England. Seventeen year-old Catherine spends her time visiting newly-made friends, such as Isabella Thorpe, and going to balls. Catherine finds herself pursued by Isabella's brother John Thorpe (Catherine's brother James's friend from university), and by Henry Tilney. She also becomes friends with Eleanor Tilney, Henry's younger sister. Henry captivates her with his view on novels and his knowledge of history and the world. General Tilney (Henry and Eleanor's father) invites Catherine to visit their estate, Northanger Abbey, which, because she has been reading Ann Radcliffe's gothic novel The Mysteries of Udolpho, Catherine expects to be dark, ancient and full of fantastical mystery.

of all the readers who give their skills and time for the enjoyment of these books, I gratefully bless you. an avid reader myself, unfortunately I can no longer for myself. so for me and others like me I send a tremendous thank you. Elizabeth is an extremely talented reader.. I do hope she works in the biz, and does voice over work for TV, radio, commercials, and a animals, and Disney. if she doesn't she has the talent to pursue that. my daughter was an actress,(sag), so I picked up much knowledge on this subject. she did a few voice overs for cartoons, but mostly was co-star, guest star , and a few leads in various mediums. again thank u all.

One of Austen's best

(5 Sterne)

This book was a treat! I was skeptical at first because I'd seen the movie adaption, and although I found it cute it couldn't compare to the great adaptions of Sense & sensibility, Pride & Prejudice or Persuasion (all adaptions from 1995), which are all very alike their respective books - and therefore assumed that this book probably didn't have as much to offer. I was indeed mistaken. It was lovely! Very funny, and a much sweeter romance takes place than in most of JA's works. The characters are great, I think Mr Tilney might be my new favorite Jane Austen hero after Captain Wentworth, and Isabella & John Thorpe are probably the most annoying characters I have ever encountered in a book. The reader did a great job, I thank her for this experience!

It was okay-ish good.

(3,5 Sterne)

This audiobook has a wonderful reader, who clearly differentiates the characters with her voice, without making it comical. The book itself was good, but was also slow from maybe Chapters 20-25. It did (I was pleased to find) have those moments within the book, though, that has a girl getting excited or dissappointed for the heroine in her romance and saying, "Awwwww!" or "Go away already, you rude jerk! Mr. Tilney is going to think she's already taken!" So it does have some sweet parts, but also some slow parts. Not Austen's best work, but not her worst either.

Youth and follies

(4,5 Sterne)

A pleasant story about a delicate young girl who dreams of castles and the stories that they tell. A bit slow in the beginning but as the plot progresses you will learn to sympathise with our easily influenced protagonist who finally finds it in her to stand up for what she believes in. Elizabeth Klett has done a fantastic narration with her spirited voices and accents for every character making it a wonderful read. No one does it better than Ms. Klett.

Not the best work by Austen but still worth a listen.

(3 Sterne)

Austen's works are generally rather enjoyable and while Northanger Abbey is in typical Austen fashion with it's heroin, journey to happiness, and ending; it feels more juvenile. Still a pleasurable read/listen. The orator, Elizabeth Klett, did a wonderful job. Absolute pleasure to listen to her reading.

Great Read and Sweet Story

(5 Sterne)

I always love E. Klets readings. She has a great voice which combines emotion and understanding to every word spoken. Though this stoy of J. Austen's may not be her most popular, it is sweet and has the ending we have come to expect in her works.

Great reader!

(5 Sterne)

This is one of the best readings of Jane Austen that I have ever listened to. Elizabeth Klett is a fabulous reader with excellent animation and pronunciation. Her voice is easy to listen to and very clear. I highly recommend this reading.

Terrific Reader

(5 Sterne)

Tank you, Elizabeth for an awesome reading of Northanger Abbey for us! This is not my favorite Jane Austen novel but it's different and variety is said to be the spice of life! After all the details Jane gives us in the courtship phases, it always seems like the ending is a bit rushed to wrap up. I would prefer more details!
