I love Northhanger Abbey, but the man reading this audiobook is boring and shows no expression in his voice whatsoever. I couldn't finish it. Instead of buying the audiobook, buy a paperback copy instead, it will be much more enjoyable!

Austen's witty exploration of the perils of mistaking fiction for reality
During an eventful season at Bath, young, naïve Catherine Morland experiences the joys of fashionable society for the first time. She is delighted with her new acquaintances: flirtatious Isabella, who shares Catherine's love of Gothic romance and horror, and sophisticated Henry and Eleanor Tilney, who invite her to their father's mysterious house, Northanger Abbey. There, her imagination influenced by novels of sensation and intrigue, Catherine imagines terrible crimes committed by General Tilney. With its broad comedy and irrepressible heroine, this is the most youthful and and optimistic of Jane Austen's works.

Lady Susan. Her first published novel was
Sense and Sensibility, which appeared in 1811 and was soon followed by
Pride and Prejudice,
Mansfield Park and
Emma. Austen died in 1817, and
Northanger Abbey were published posthumously in 1818.
