Overview

Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen

Northanger Abbey, Austen's first novel completed for publication, tells the story of seventeen-year-old Catherine Morland, a passionate and headstrong young woman with a fondness for Gothic novels. Away from home for the first time in her life, and with only her reading to guide her, Catherine finds herself suddenly thrown into the adult world-a world bristling with possible intrigue, romance, and suspense. Northanger Abbey can be enjoyed as a parody of the Gothic romance novels in vogue at the time Austen began her own writing career. Or it can be savored as a delightful comedy of manners and a cautionary tale. For in the education of Catherine Morland, the novel explores the mercurial relationship between appearance and reality, literature and life-and in the process raises questions about its own fictionality.

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

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.

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.
