Overview

Presents Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen along with a critical introduction and contextual materials.

This edition places Jane Austen and Northanger Abbey in the major conversations of Romanticism, not just the gothic novel and female education. It places the novel in two contexts, 1798, when it was written, and 1818, when it was published, illustrating its relevance to both periods and the major writers, especially the poets. This edition connects Jane Austen with the major Western literary tradition, from ancient myth, the Arabian Nights, to Cervantes, Flaubert, and Virginia Woolf.

Those interested in Jane Austen and/or the novel Northanger Abbey.

    poor formating

    The formatting for this eBook is terrible - so much missing text and extra characters that you can't read it.

    Very Entertaining

    Northanger Abbey is a fun book to read. It has very colorful characters and when reading it i could see them come to life in my head. Catherine Morland is an interesting and humorous character. She has an imagination that makes for great reading. I recommend this book to anyone who wants an entertaining read

    NEEDS EDITING!

    Didn't read but a few pages because it is so difficult to read through all the misspellings, extra punctuation, weird spacing, etc. A real dis-service to a classic author!

    Great!

    I'm halfway through and I love it. I love how Austen pokes fun at gothic romance fiction. Highly recommended, though it's not nearly as good as Pride and Prejudice.

    A Good Book Gone Wrong

    This particular Gutenberg scan is riddled with poor scan conversions - the first two pages are completely illegible. Try another version.

    Love the story - but get a different version.

    While this is one of my favorite stories, do not get this version. The print is very messed up, and unless you know the story by heart it may be difficult to follow due to the missing and incorrect characters.

    An odd tale of a young girl's journey into womanhood

    Slow to start and perhaps a little over the top in some regards, but that may also have been a point the author was trying to get across. A predictable happy ending.

    Bad formatting

    Do not purchase this version of the book for the nook color. Lots of extra text characters making it unreadable.

    Downloaded oddly

    The text is quite garbled for some reason, and has the characters and symbols used in type facing interspersed amongst the words. Some words are so "incomplete" that I can only guess what they should be. Quite disappointing as I have enjoyed other works by this author. I cannot give an acurate rating on the content of the book due to the manner in which it downloaded.

    more from this reviewer

    If only it were finished...

    I do not feel Northanger Abbey is a completed novel. The story itself is wonderful. I fell in love with Catherine and Henry. However, I did not love the parts where the author stepped back and spoke directly to the reader. I felt like it took too much away from the story, especially at the end.

    interesting but not the best book i have ever read

    i am not a big fan of jane austen books but the discription on the back made this one sound very suspencefull. however, the myster didnt get going until about page 150 and even then it wasnt as intriguing as i had hoped. the love story in the book was very good, full of love triangles and questioning, although parts were a little confusing. in my opinion for an english book i think that it was good, but as for a mystery novel, i think it was very lacking in mystery.
