Customer Review

Catherine Morland is an unlikely heroine as she is more practical and down to earth than a romantic heroine is supposed to be. She goes on an extended visit at the age of 17 to Bath with her friends and neighbours Mr and Mrs Allen. There she becomes entangled with the Thorpes - Isabella and John. Before long Catherine realises they aren't the best friends she could have when they start to try and manipulate her. But the Tilneys - Henry and Eleanor - are more to her taste and she is thrilled when Eleanor invites her to stay with them at Northanger Abbey.

What follows involves many misunderstandings partly influenced by Catherine's avid reading of the Gothic novels of authors such as Mrs Radcliffe. The book is humorous with many well drawn characters. It is lighter hearted even than Pride and Prejudice (Wordsworth Classics)with many ironical asides from the author. It is an ideal choice for any reader coming new to Jane Austen.

This Wordsworth edition is good value and well produced with an interesting introduction, list of further reading and notes on the text.
