"...the great Lynn Redgrave reading Jane Austen. What a wonderful combination - thank you Silksoundbooks."
LS - by e-mail
The great British actress Lynn Redgrave brings Jane Austen's first novel Northanger Abbey vividly to life in this unabridged audio book.
The story follows the 17 year old Catherine Morland, one of those Austen girls who, in spite of her ironic portrait as a romantic heroine in training, ends up being someone whose story you’d follow to the end of the world. The villains and suitors somehow acquire those extra sixteen layers that Austen cannot help herself writing.
Northanger Abbey is a wonderful piece of gothic horror - but at the same time as you’re grinning at the terrifying manuscript Catherine finds in her bedroom, you’ll be delighting in the sheer brilliance of the first of Jane Austen’s great novels.
