Have you ever wondered what Tilney was like when he was younger, when his mother was alive? Or have you ever wanted to know more about Eleanor romance? Or seen more into the mind of the hilarious Tilney whilst he was teasing the naive Catherine?

Well, this will answer those questions and many more besides! I was unsure about reading a story taking on the classic Jane Austen novels as I did not want them ruined. But, I am glad I took the plunge and read them as they did not ruin the originals, it gave some great background and new depth to the classic characters!

She caught Tilney's humour from the off and to see into Henry's thoughts was wonderful. Seeing more about his family gave him a great background and it was lovely to see his brother Frederick portayed as a broken hearted man rather than a scoundral!

Amanda Grange has written a whole range of these diaries, Austen’s stories from an alternate point of view. Following a recent read of 'Northanger Abbey', it seemed a good time to see what the book may have looked like from Henry Tilney’s point of view. I’ve read a few of these diaries before, the Captain Wentworth one, which was my introduction to JAFF (Jane Austen Fan Fiction) and I followed that up by reading the Mr Darcy one. I enjoyed them both, although I felt, particularly with the Darcy one, that his character hadn’t quite been captured. I was interested to see how Austen’s most amusing hero, Mr Tilney, had been represented.

The story begins when Henry is aged 16, so about 9 years or so before the events of 'Northanger Abbey', and the author builds a picture of the family. At this time, Mrs Tilney is still alive, beloved by all her children and very much the centre of the family, although she has spells of illness. Henry’s older brother, Frederick is extremely wild. He is his mother’s darling and his father’s exasperation, and his wild behaviour is given as the reason for the fact that he, the heir to the estate, was sent into the army. Frederick is feckless with his money, and believes himself to be in love, until a rude awakening makes him realise that the woman he thought he loved was only interested in finding herself as rich a husband as possible. Frederick takes this very hard, and drunkenly warns his brother away from love:

‘Poking me affectionately in the chest, he went on, in a slurred voice, “You’re a good man, Henry, a very good man. You’re not just my brother, you’re my best friend and I love you, I do. So I will tell you something, Henry. Now listen carefully. Come closer. Closer. Never give your heart to a woman. Never, never, never. Promise me.

The author explains how the original characters came into the story and fills in the background of Austen's Northanger
Abbey quite successfully. Henry Tilney is well written and so are Catherine and Eleanor. There is one particular chapter towards the end which involves the unbelievable death of four men all struck by the same bolt of lightening which stretches the imagination to breaking point. Otherwise a good read.

Another excellent 'diary' from Amanda Grange. You really get to see inside the heros thoughts and get the story from his point of view. I recommend all the diarys in the series and hope there will be more in the future. X

Absolutely love Amanda's Grange journals. Northanger Abbey is not Austen's best novels but the journal sticks to the theme and gives a nice insight in Henry Tilney's life and past.
