    poor formating

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

    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!

    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

    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.

    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.
