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.

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.

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

I love everything Jane Austen ever wrote.o

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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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