This book was a delight! View all 26 comments. During this period, she aysten with various literary forms, including the epistolary novel which she tried then abandoned, and wrote and extensively revised three major novels and began a fourth.

However, by the age of 17, we are told that she is “in training for a heroine”having all the attributes considered desirable in a young girl at the time.

In contrast, in this one dialogues especially in the first part are enjoyable but a bit overwritten. As a baseball fan, I want to mention that, among other outdoor activities, the heroine played ‘base ball’!


I saw the satire. Not her best work. He means to say that in dancing, the roles are reversed. This article is about the novel. Isabella and her brother in this book?

Catherine also has no idea why the General is so courteous and solicitous of her, merely believing him to be exceptionally kind.

Nov 02, Will M. Now that I’ve finally read the book and understand what the abdaia happened, I could kick myself for having waited so long! But Austen also takes the time, whilst skewering Gothic novels, to make a few pleas to readers in favor of novels generally.

Now, that I think of it, many novelists I like follow patterns. But then she grows up. It abadiaa quite a low-key romance, which I enjoyed, as Catherine did get sad when Henry disappeared for a bit, but it’s not like she stopped going to the theatre and hanging out with her best friends.

You sir, are parsing words. Maybe this is because it was published austne and therefore still needed more work.

Austen inserts a lot of sarcastic side comments mocking Gothic plot elements, like Catherine’s father being “not in the least addicted to locking up his daughters” and her mother “instead of dying in bringing the latter [sons] into the world, as anybody might expect,” still living on in inexplicably good health.

Whereas Pride and PrejudiceSense and Sensibilityand Emma are swathed in petticoat layer upon layer’s worth of love and relationship intrigue, by comparison Northanger Abbey wears but a thin veil.

Jan 26, Bookdragon Sean rated it it was amazing Shelves: Let’s stop wondering and see if I could be as much into Austen now as I was as a teenager.

Enjoyable story, which started over very well, dipped a bit in the middle then peeked up towards the end.

But he has a weakness for cute girls who totally admire him. Though Austen’s fallible heroine is repeatedly drawn into scrapes while vacationing at Bath and during her subsequent visit to Northanger Abbey, Catherine eventually triumphs, blossoming into a discerning woman who learns truths about love, life, and the heady power of literature.

As much as I believe that Henry is one of the worst romantic figures in literature, I northangee liked df book.


Northanger Abbey

Mar 16, Trevor rated it it was amazing Shelves: Northanger Abbey takes place in several settings, some of which are fictionalized, but many are actual locations in England, including London and Bath. Henry, on hearing of the incident, challenges his father and leaves for Hertfordshire to request Catherine’s hand in marriage, but the girl’s parents wisely advise the couple to wait for the consent of the general.

They disconnect me from the vision of Austen’s world that I have in my head and in my heart. So, if there is anything “dated” in Jane Austen, it must be the lovable character of her protagonist, her passionate argument for reading novelsand her linguistically convincing prose. Suzannah Hitchcock Perhaps we like them because they are so like real life?

Nothing is ever as mysterious or dramatic as she would hope.

Nov 03, Jason Pettus rated it it was amazing. Vidal has joined us he has been requested many times, but unfortunately no one has been before us that actually considered him to be their favorite writer. I cannot approve of it”.

I struggled with Northanger Abbey for a while due to the writing style. The intricacies and tedium of high society, particularly partner selection, and the conflicts of marriage for love. Catherine tries to maintain her friendships with both the Thorpes and the Tilneys, though John Thorpe baadia tries to sabotage her relationship with the Tilneys.
