Northanger Abbey, a satire of Gothic melodrama, is one of Jane Austen's most popular works. When Catherine Morland is launched into the politics and pitfalls of the Bath social season, she behaves with the cheerful open-mindedness of one of Jane Austen's most eligible classic heroines.

Lumley reads well though sound quality not great
Unfortunately the sound quality of this recording is not consistently clear. Otherwise Lumley reads excellently.
