Catherine Morland goes to Bath for the season as the guest of Mr. and Mrs. Allen, and there she meets the eccentric General Tilney, his son Henry Tilney and his daughter Elanor Tilney. Catherine is invited to the Tilney's home, Northanger Abbey, where she imagines numerous gruesome secrets surrounding the General and his house. Henry proves that her suspicions have no substance, and while she is still recovering from the humiliation, she finds herself ordered out of the house by the General.
She returns home and is followed by Henry. He explains that the General, mistakenly believing her to be penniless, had been anxious to keep her away from his son. Restored to a sensible humor by the truth, the General finally gives his blessing to Henry's marriage to Catherine.

good price...ok reading
This is a great book...all true Austen fans will like it. But the reader seems to get bored about half way through and it comes through in her reading. The story is a little slow at first but just when it starts to pick up the energy of the narrator dwindles. The character voices are good as is the quality of the reader's accents, pace and overall fluidity. Enjoyable but not wonderful.
