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.

Great read, love Jane Austin's heroines!
I loved this book. It was a little easier to get through than Pride and Prejudice, which I also loved. I didn't find myself having to read sentences over and over to divine their meaning with this one! :)
flowing words form the basis of this love story in a time of hints, glances and hushed conversations. The money side of love and marriage seeks to destroy lives and hearts.
In the end a good love will withstand the test of time in this slow moving world. Satisfying to the end.
