Are you kidding me, who reviews Jane Austen.

A book in almost the usual style of Jane Austen. A young girl visits Bath for 6 weeks and becomes a heroine. Her adventures with her own imaginations are quite humorous. All in all, a funnier and more lighthearted book than Jane Austen usually writes. Well worth the read!

Although its not the effervescent work of genius that Pride and Prejudice is, Austen's first novel is thoroughly charming. Austen's witty, gentle mockery of the cliches of the gothic novel set Northanger Abbey apart in originality and humor. But its best feature is the winning, naive and over-imaginative heroine Catherine Morland, as she leaves her country home and explores the sophisticated world for the first time.
