Northanger Abbey tells the story of a young girl, Catherine Morland who leaves her sheltered, rural home to enter the busy, sophisticated world of Bath in the late 1790s. Austen observes with insight and humour the interaction between Catherine and the various characters whom she meets there, and tracks her growing understanding of the world about her. In this, her first full-length novel, Austen also fixes her sharp, ironic gaze on other kinds of contemporary novel, especially the Gothic school made famous by Ann Radcliffe. Catherine's reading becomes intertwined with her social and romantic adventures, adding to the uncertainties and embarrassments she must undergo before finding happiness.

    " The last few pages could have really been another entire book in their own right, but no matter! Overall, still a very cute story and the drama was just tiresome enough to make the ending feel good. "

    " It's by Austen; so naturally, I'm rereading it. But, particularly since I took a necromantic class at BYU and finally understand the references to Radcliffe's "The Mysteries of Udolpho," I've been eager to revisit this particular novel. I'm reading it online, so it's slow-going (I don't care for this medium), but Austen's wit and insight intrigue me more with the passage of time. She never ages. "

    " Not my favorite Jane but very funny in sections. Her social commentary is hilarious in the first section. I just think her story waned in the second half. "
