Northanger Abbey is a hilarious parody of 18th century gothic novels. The heroine, 17-year old Catherine, has been reading far too many “horrid” gothic novels and would love to encounter some gothic-style terror — but the superficial world of Bath proves hazardous enough.
Jane Austen at her best!
Jane’s humor and finesse of language is paramount in this funny and sweet novel. While it isn’t as powerful as Pride and Prejudice, it still has that enjoyable Jane Austen quality that leaves you smiling and hopeful! If only life could be a JA novel, we’d all be lucky!
Great read, love Jane Austin's heroines!
Wasn’t really familiar with this book but decided to give it a try and was pleasantly surprised. I actually enjoyed this over Emma
