Jane Austen is, of course, well known for books such as Pride and Prejudice, and Sense and Sensibility. But…she also wrote several other novels including this one. To me, Northanger Abbey is a bit different from Austen’s other works. It is her version of the Gothic tales that were popular during her own time. In Austen’s version, the protagonist, Catherine Morland, would like to be more exciting, more like a Gothic heroine. What will happen when Catherine leaves home for the first time? What will happen during her visit to Northanger Abbey? It is well worth reading this classic to find out!
