Northanger Abbey is the Jane Austen novel that contemporary readers may find the most immediate because it is the most youthful, exuberant and consciously literary. Read the first page

Format:Paperback
I am currently studying AS Level English Language and Literature, which involves reading and understanding Persuasion in great depth. This book has a detailed section on Persuasion (54 pages long), which showcases Austen's narrative methods, main characters, essential themes and quotes to illustrate them. Not only that, but the paragraphs are presented in a sizeable manner as it does not have pages and pages of long continuous writing. If you are studying any of Austen's novels, this book is a must-have!!!
