  • Austen’s novels are indisputably the original rom-coms. While they come without smutty jokes there is the confusion, mix-ups and hurt feelings that feature in every Notting Hill and Bridget Jones.

  • The language can be difficult to adjust to for the modern reader...but it is worth soldiering on and acclimating for some of the funniest scenes ever put on paper...Northanger Abbey may not be Jane Austen's most famous novel, but readers will recognize their friends and frenemies in the characters and enjoy a witty plot.

  • Readers of serious fiction and even fans of Jane Austen’s later works may find the novel to be too lighthearted or may find Austen’s direct commentary somewhat intrusive. However, the novel will resonate with those who are interested in the subject of reading, which is a central theme in the book.

  • As always, Jane Austen’s writing is wonderful and elegant. The words flow off the pages, and I’m lured into her narrative. The story it self was also well done and shorter than her other works, if you haven’t read anything by her yet, I suggest starting here...A great choice for any classic fan.

  • What I loved about Northanger Abbey in particular was its frequent discussion of books and bookish pursuits. Catherine Morland, the heroine, loves reading gothic-style horror novels and so a large part of this book is her discussing them with her acquaintances...So the final result? Yeah, I liked it :)
