Northanger Abbey (version 2)

Gelesen von Elizabeth Klett

(4,662 Sterne; 1828 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.

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.

Beautifully read

(3 Sterne)

This is not my favorite of her works, but it is well read. It wraps up rather quickly, and the answer to the mystery isn't so deep as they would make it out to be in the text, but certainly still worth a listen.

Enjoyable!

(5 Sterne)

I thoroughly enjoyed this delightful work from Jane Austen. Elizabeth Klett’s talented voice makes it easy to follow, and I especially loved her delicate British accent for the characters. Although Northanger Abbey is not a profound, thought-provoking work fit for discussion, it is a lovely slice of witty entertainment. Catherine is a believable, friendly heroine, and after a few chapters you’ll find yourself cheering for Mr. Tilney, her preferred suitor. But be prepared to want to read The Mysteries of Udolpho!

again.. only for mrs Elizabeth Klett.

(5 Sterne)

of all the Jane austen i have forced myself to listen to, this one is atleast the least drivel of them all. good story tho long and laggin in some points, of course ends as all expect it to be. just another Austen down only for the sake of ms Kletts narration skills. Elizabeth is the only reason i have been able to stomach Austens works.

Anything of Jane Austin's

(5 Sterne)

This LibriVox volunteer is clearly a cut above our average narrator, and brings us a story not always fondly reviewed, yet with all the elements we crave. It asks us only to allow our imagination free reign, our heart, an afternoon of free time and it will give us genuine Joy in return.

(5 Sterne)

Elizabeth Klett is one of the finest readers/performers in the world of audiobooks. Her delivery is lively, her diction impeccable, and her accents lovely and accurate. This is the only Austen work I haven’t read myself, and it is a pleasure to hear it presented so beautifully in this version.

Spectacular reading!!

(5 Sterne)

Elizabeth Klett does such a good job of portraying all the different characters!! You don't get all the men and women confused and she has found a different voice for each character (which is something I have found very hard to do while narrating)

Accent switching disconcerting

(4 Sterne)

Elizabeth Klerk does a terrific English accent and reads very well. My only complaint is her switching back to her American accent for the narrative passages, which brings one out of the happy “suspension of disbelief” with an unpleasant jolt.
