Overview

This special edition of Northanger Abbey includes the famous illustrations by Henry Matthew Brock, originally created in 1898. Brock and his brothers were all successful illustrators of the day and often posed for each other using costumes, props and furniture in their Cambridge studio. Brock's older brother Charles joined him in illustrating other Jane Austen releases for this set of 1898 editions.

Northanger Abbey was Austen's first completed novel but was published posthumously in 1817. Austen sold the novel to a bookseller in 1803 - for u10 - who decided not to publish it. Her brother bought it back for the same amount after her death.

Catherine Morland is the daughter of a country clergyman, one of ten children. She devours Gothic novels and has an active imagination. After a lively season in Bath, she is invited to Northanger Abbey, where she finds the house is not the dark, moody Gothic mansion of her imaginings.

Catherine's exciting season in Bath leads her to become acquainted with the dashing John Thorpe, who encourages her flights of fancy and attempts to divert her from his rival Henry Tilney. But Henry extends an invitation she can't resist and she finds herself visiting Northanger Abbey. There, as a "heroine in training," she is determined to bring one of her favorite Gothic novels to life, but the charming and very down to earth Mr. Tilney eventually brings her to see that real life can be even more interesting than the most spine-chilling Gothic fantasy.

    I loved this book even more than I thought I would. Of course, I love all things Austen. But I waited to read this. Other reviews say its not as good as Austen's other work. OK, but Austen is still genius. (OK - her sarcasm is more obvious. Austen points out her sarcasm in this work, but in later novels she relies on the reader's intelligence to understand the irony and wit.)

    I really like the main character, Catherine Moreland. She's sweet, naive, and has an over-active imagination. In a lot of ways, its a coming of age novel, and I laughed out loud throughout.

    Catherine is stuck dealing with the vain, shallow Thorpes and tries to get closer to the kind, caring Tilneys. (The Thorpes, especially Isabella, cracked me up!) Its definitely Austen's funniest novel. It really is hilarious!
