'Jane Austen is a genius, and Northanger Abbey is hugely underrated' Martin Amis

Witty and Clever
This Jane Austen classic is often overlooked, sitting in the shadows of our beloved Pride and Prejudice, Persuasion and Emma. What a shame It is just as clever and witty as Austen's better-known novels.When young and sheltered Catherine Moreland is thrust into Bath society, her life starts to reflect the mysterious gothic novels she loves to read. She meets dashing Mr Henry Tilney, whose cheeky nature quickly captures Catherines attention. When she accepts an invitation to the Tilney's home at Northanger Abbey, Catherine stumbles into a great secret- the mysterious death of Henry's mother. As Catherine and Henry's relationships begins to blossom, Catherine becomes obsessed with uncovering the Abbeys secret. Her wild suspicions become known to Henry, jeopardizing their relationship forever.This novel is hard to put down, with witty dialogue, timeless characters, fast-moving story lines and a loveable hero. Definitely one to add to your classics collection. By Jacqueline Cameron
