Northanger Abbey (Vintage Classics Austen Series)
Northanger Abbey (Vintage Classics Austen Series) | Jane Austen
WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY P.D. JAMES The Vintage Classics Austen series is designed by the writer and illustrator Leanne Shapton and introduced by some of our finest contemporary writers and Austen fans: Alexander McCall Smith, Lynne Truss, Amanda Vickery, Francesca Segal, P.D. James and Andrew Motion. 'Jane Austen is a genius, and Northanger Abbey is hugely underrated' Martin Amis Catherine Morland is a young girl with a very active imagination. Her naivety and love of sensational novels lead her to approach the fashionable social scene in Bath and her stay at nearby Northanger Abbey with preconceptions that have embarrassing and entertaining consequences.

I had a blast reading this book! It was funny, sarcastic and truly charming. Henry Tilney is just as swoon-worthy as Mr. Darcy, if not a tad more (gasp!) 😍

Hanging out on the San Antonio Riverwalk waiting for my Henry to finish his business meeting.
While Pride and Prejudice was my first Austen love, I love Northanger Abbey just as much. I love the satire and the cheekiness but best of all it has Henry Tilney. Charming, Witty, AND a Novel Reader! 😍

Crinoline_Laphroaig @Texreader I was actually there last week. (Been saving my pic for when I finished Northanger.) It was extremely hot once you left Riverwalk, but that just made margaritas more refreshing. I always find your city lovely. 3mo

This week's late #bfc check-in features me, a magpie/trash collecting Parkrunner (see hand full of bits of shiny trash) at last week's event, looking mighty trashed (heh) on the home stretch. Did less well on some goals this week than I would've liked, but I'm absolutely on track with my book goal and I'm super excited about that 💃💃 Tagged is my current read which I'm enjoying immensely 😍

For all my love of Pride and Prejudice; my favorite quote doesn't come from Mr. Darcy. It belongs to Henry Tilney of Northanger Abbey. My necklace I brought home from Jane Austen's House Museum makes me smile every time I wear it. 😊

"No one who had ever seen Catherine Morland in her infancy would have supposed her born to be a heroine."

I can‘t believe I waited this long to finally pick up a Jane Austen novel! How fitting that I chose her first written novel (though not published until after her death). I am thoroughly enjoying every minute if it and can‘t wait to read more of her work. Especially since the 2005 Pride and Prejudice movie is one of my favorites!

I remember Northanger Abbey as being my favourite story by Jane Austen when I read the works 15+ years ago. That, and the fact that it's the shortest novel, made me choose it as my #publicdomain pick for #booked2019. I still enjoy it - it's pretty funny and I love the sarcasm throughout. Happy to be able to combine the physical book with the audiobook though - this is huge!

This was not my favorite Jane Austen, I was kind of annoyed by the characters. I think Jane was just finding her way and focused more on satire than likability. But I‘m glad it was on @Librarybelle ‘s #newyearwhodis list and that I read it @monalyisha .

Librarybelle It is a bit different from her other novels. Glad you read it! 10mo
Clare-Dragonfly This one seems to be pretty polarizing—it‘s my favorite Austen and a fairly common pick, but lots of people don‘t like it! 10mo

I listened to the first few chapters of this book on Audible and I decided to DNF it. I wasn‘t interested in going any further with it and it was putting me to sleep. I heard a lot of good things about her books so I‘m disappointed but hopefully, I will like Pride And Prejudice a lot better. I‘ve heard it‘s one of her later books and that it was better than this one so we‘ll see.

Yes I know it's a satire. Yes I got the joke. I just didn't find it funny. Nothing much happens.

It is interesting to see how much time women with at least moderate priviledge spent sitting around talking to other bored women. Also, maybe I'm over simplifying it, but seems like everyone dances with a partner a few times, takes a carriage ride, walks around a garden or something, and then gets married. At least the cover is pretty.

To trudge through or give up? That is the question. I've never read Austen so I really want to read at least one of her books, but at 43% I am struggling to enjoy this. Even though it's short, the writing style of the time doesn't make this a quick read. Im putting it down for the night. Maybe I'll try more tomorrow.
