Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
I really liked this book and even more so now after being in Bath a few weeks ago. It was great to have a real place in my head when reading the scenes in Bath. Of course, that is not what I liked best about Northanger Abbey. What I like best is Catherine Morland. I love her obsession with novels, gothic horror novels at that, and her naivete when it comes to the people she meets.
The characters are absolutely perfectly portrayed- the innocence of Catherine, the selfish and greedy Isabella Thorpe, the sweet and kind Eleanor Tilney and her handsome gentlemanly brother, Henry. Their father does very well at convincing Catherine in her silly notions that their home and family are straight out of the novels she enjoys.
This was a fun and entertaining story, not as serious as Jane Austen's other novels. Not my favorite but definitely one I will enjoy reading again.
