Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Juliet Stevenson

Classics • 8.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1818

Austen's parody of a gothic novel gets an elegant reading to match its elegant prose. Sheltered Catherine Morland goes to fashionable Bath with a wealthy neighbor and discovers society and love. Juliet Stevenson gives each character a unique voice—the duplicitous Isabelle; Catherine's suitor, Henry Tinley; and Catherine's vacuous hostess—and invests each conversation with energy and importance. At the same time, as Austen, Stevenson steps back and comments on gothic heroines and Catherine's failures at becoming one. The delivery of Henry's fanciful description of the Abbey as a dark and mysterious place is a mini-classic in itself. Those who love Austen's fiction will appreciate this classy production. J.B.G.
