Well, as a fan of Austen's masterpiece, this Northanger Abbey is certainly a minor work, which does not mean is an uninteresting one. This BBC adaptation, but, is very amusing. I was told this version was blunt and with no interest, however I enjoy watching it. Of course, the plot isn't as complex as Pride and Prejudice, but it's different and wonderful. i enjoyed very much the parts of Bath and the Abbey. Sometimes it takes a scent of an horror tale, because the main character, Catherine, is very fond of horror novels and she is always imagining reality to be the plot of one of these called gothic novels. but in fact, it's worth seeing and enjoying. I repeat that this is not North and South or Pride and Prejudice, but you must give a chance... surely you won't be deceived!
