Though Austen’s fallible heroine is repeatedly drawn into scrapes while vacationing at Bath and during her subsequent visit to Northanger Abbey, Catherine eventually triumphs, blossoming into a discerning woman who learns truths about love, life, and the heady power of literature.

As much as I believe that Henry is one of the worst romantic figures in literature, I really liked the book. Why do we like these books? The men in her novels are absolutely awful and the women are dumber than rocks. But that has never stopped me from enjoying the love story.

I thought this book was funny and thought provoking. In Jane Austen’s world, the characters are awful but true love conquers all. Suzannah Hitchcock Perhaps we like them because they are so like real life? How many young ladies have met a Mr. Rochester and a St. John in the course of one year? I …more Perhaps we like them because they are so like real life?

I would rather meet a Henry than a Mr. Rochester any day, because he is normal and dependable, and will open the door for me, instead of almost having a seizure because he’s so in love. Yes, it was funny! I love how she makes fun of silly women, like Isabella. Ugh, she was a pain in the neck!

What does Henry mean by compliance, when he says, in regards to marriage and dancing, that the “their duties are exactly changed; the agreeableness, the compliance is expected from him, while she furnishes the fan and lavender water.

Men earned the money fan and lavender waterwhile women were keepers of the home agreeableness, …more The marriage standards of the time were: Men earned the money fan and lavender waterwhile women were keepers of the home agreeableness, compliance, etc.

He means to say that in dancing, the roles are reversed. It is men who must be agreeable and comply to a women’s wishes, while women who will provide the ‘materials’ needed.

He’s basically poking fun. See all 5 questions about Northanger Abbey…. Lists with This Book. Will I ever give a Jane Austen book less than 5 stars? Doesn’t look like it. This is the second time I’ve read this book and I enjoyed it even more than I did the first time! Tilney is still the most hilarious flirt and I love how Catherine has a crush on him from the beginning, as I found that far more relatable than the accidentally-falling-in-love trope that is in many of Austen’s other works.

I’m not exactly sure what made this reading experience so fantastic? Probably the fact that the Will I ever give a Jane Austen book less than 5 stars? Probably the fact that the faux-Gothic style fit with Halloween so much and that I was able to read it with the rest of the Austentatious book club!

Also, as I am now more versed in her other works, I was able to see how this her first novel showcased her early talents and inner reflections on se novel writing was a worthy profession.

This book may not be for everyone, but if you’re looking for a lighthearted and relatively easy classic to read, pick this up!

I am, obviously, a huge fan of Jane Austen, but I had heard so little about this novel that I was unsure of it going in. It definitely isn’t as perfect as Pride and Prejudice nothing can be, let’s be honestbut I loved the parody of 18th century gothic novels and found myself laughing at loud several times.

This both made me happy, as I had people to root against and laugh at, and unhappy, as the annoying conversations with Isabella and John got repetitive after a while. View all 20 comments. I have a confession to make.

I’m sorry, but it’s true. Catherine’s obsession with bloodthirsty Gothic novels leads her to see a mystery or a creepy secret in every room eventually leading her to suspect Eleanor’s grumpy dad of having unceremoniously murdered his own wife, OR, possibly, of locking her up in a hidden dungeon somewhere inside the abbeyand her various misadventures and misunderstandings make for top-shelf farce. But then when a REAL mystery arrives on her doorstep taking us back into the world of Bath and bringing the two stories togethershe realizes that she’s been looking at things upside-down and backwards the whole time.

This book has some real,heartfelt drama and romance, but mainly I like it because it’s really, really funny. Catherine is awesome and kind of nuts, and the supporting characters run the gamut from really northanber and charming Eleanor and her brother Henry to the excruciatingly irritating John and Isabella, who totally beat out both Mrs. View all 32 comments. Jan 26, Bookdragon Sean rated fe it was amazing Shelves: There just another telling of boy meets girl in an uninspiring way with a few social issues thrown in.

Well, ashamed as I am to admit it, that is what I used to believe in my woefully idiotic ignorance. How foolish of me. Jane Austen is one of, if not the, best novelists of all time. If you disbelieve me, and held a nprthanger opinion to my own, then read one of her novels and find out for yourself. Indeed, if not Austen would have been unable to achieve such an endearing comment on the absurdity of society, the role of women in that said avadia, and the ignorance toward the unpopular literary craft of the novel.

How else if not though the eyes of an innocent young girl who cannot understand the mechanisms of these aspects of the world? Who when thrust into the pump room a sort of ball room for dance and socialising has virtually no idea how to behave. Catherine has an immeasurable misunderstanding of the intentions of others, and a misguided view that the world is like one of her beloved books: Could it be possible?

Austen has satirised the conventions of gothic literature by writing a semi-gothic novel herself that is focalised through the experience of Catherine. Catherine is well read, but only as far as the gothic genre allows. This has clouded her interpretation of the events that occur around her, consequently, life to her has become akin to the works by authors such as Radcliffe. This means that by the time that Catherine arrives at the abbey she expects it to be this place of utter darkness and dread; she expects to be a gothic castle and the home to a tyrannical gothic villain.

However, when the veil is lifted and she realises that her life is in fact not a book and the motivations of the people in it are not what she thought them to be, the revelation of how foolish she has been dawns upon her.

I love Northanger Abbey; it is brilliant.

Jane Austen is the master of her craft; her work is what she argued the novel to be: View all 21 comments. That’s a bit annoying, as I northanver compete with her wit of course. But even more annoying is the fact that I wrote my own imag abqdia is only a novel But even more annoying is the fact that I wrote my own imaginary review in my head before I started the book – and as opposed to Austen’s summary, mine doesn’t work out at all anymore, now that I know the story.

It is dangerous to check the facts before writing your opinion – for facts have the frustrating habit of changing your opinions – if you dare to leave the realm of your fiction.

Like the young heroine in Northanger Abbey, I seemed to have lost grip of fiction and reality recently nortbanger due to an overly greedy consumption of novels! Like the young heroine, I thought I knew what to expect of characters, setting and plot before I had even ventured out to explore them, and like her, I created a massive amount of tension for myself, only to find myself in the somewhat silly situation of waking up to a reality that did not at all justify my preconceived ideas.

Let’s say I prided myself in “knowing” what to expect of Jane Austen. Let’s say I started full of prejudices.

Let’s say that I had to force myself to come to my senses after a roller coaster that tested my sensibility more than I am willing to admit. Let’s say I thought I had a perfect review in the making, following the idea of explaining the exaggerated characters and dramatic actions with regard to Austen’s time, place and gender. I was going to put Northanger Abbey in its place – liking it for its classic status, but dismissing it secretly as irrelevant in the modern context. I was going to compare it to earlier works of Gothic fiction, and maybe even to my timeless favourite Dickens and his comically evil villains and puritan heroes.

She’s a bloody genius, – Jane Austen if one can still say that nowadays without involuntarily insulting her intelligence and judgment! The Thorpes too vain, greedy, shallow and stupid?

Eh – show me the person in high society today that is NOT equally vulgar, volatile and obvious! Norhanger naivety of the heroine? Eh – we have people organising Flat Earth Conferences and it isn’t even fiction or satire, but plain truth.

Eh – if the eternal generation conflict was solved in the meantime, I must have missed it!
