"When Catherine Morland, a country clergyman's daughter, is invited to spend a season in Bath with the fashionable high society, little does she imagine the delights and perils that await her. Captivated and disconcerted by what she finds, and introduced to the joys of 'Gothic novels' by her new friend, Isabella, Catherine longs for mystery and romance.

    The Mysteries of Udolpho de Ann Radcliffe (upstairsgirl, HollyMS)
    upstairsgirl: This is the book that Austen's heroine is reading (and which Austen is wryly mocking) in Northanger Abbey. Fun to read with each other; Udolpho is possibly less fun on its own.

I loved this. Catherine is so likable and a true friend. She is very genuine and unassuming and deserves a better friend than Isabella. I wanted so much for her to tell-off John Thorpe for being such a pompous ass. Catherine's wild imagination that got away from her when she got to Northanger Abbey is one of the more humorous parts I have read in a while.

Henry Tilney is a wonderful character as well. I love the way he teases Catherine and his sister, Eleanor, with the less-than-exact way they use words. And he ultimately stands up to his father which you can't help but admire since his father is fairly formidable.

An overall enjoyable, light read which isn't Austen's best but is well worth the time.

Update May 2017 - This was a reread and I have the same opinion this time around as the first time. Fun and pleasant story with characters to like and others to despise. Somehow my memory led me to think that Isabella and Captain Tilney ended up running off together which was wrong, but I almost wish they had since it would have served Henry's father right. ( )

Catherine Morland is quite a funny character and a seventeen-year-old is reasonably represented in this story of misapprehensions and coming of age. It is hard to judge people of those times by today's standards, as times were so very different. Inheritance was so much more important than it is today, as was the acquisition of a title in the eyes of the classes which the protagonist socialises with. ( )

113/2020. This was a set text at school when I was 11. As you can probably imagine, I had far more in common with the protagonist in the first few paragraphs, when she was keeping pets and rolling down hills, than for the entire remainder of the novel. I had no interest in romance novels and probably the only gothic fiction I'd encountered was Scooby Doo cartoons. And so I, like so many other schoolchildren, was unnecessarily put off a classic text and author for no perceivable reason. Fortunately, unlike many other ex-schoolchildren, I had the inclination to re-assay a few of the classics that education had ruined for me by forcing them on me when I was far too young to connect with them. Needless to say that as an adult I have much more empathy for the teenage heroine than I did as a child.

Northanger Abbey isn't as funny as Pride and Prejudice, or as emotive as Sense and Sensibility, and it shares the mild tendency to longueurs with Persuasion, but the protagonist is adorable and the author witty.

My only annoyance with the novel is the hero, Henry Tilney, who is one of those ghastly entitled sons of the gentry who claims a position in the Church of England for the tied house and tithed income and then takes the money and runs, leaving the pastoral care of his parishioners to an underpaid curate. Jane Austen did care enough about the situation to show Henry attending at least one parish meeting, which would've been in his financial interests after all, and filling in at one Sunday service because his curate was otherwise occupied, so that's more of a damn than most of this author's peers gave, but even as someone who couldn't give two hoots about religion I still can't like or approve of Henry the greedy hypocrite. I can only hope teen bride Catherine Morland's early family training stays with her into marriage and she doesn't begin to imitate her Tilney in-laws too much.

Quote

"She was heartily ashamed of her ignorance - a misplaced shame. Where people wish to attach, they should always be ignorant. To come with a well−informed mind is to come with an inability of administering to the vanity of others, which a sensible person would always wish to avoid. A woman especially, if she have the misfortune of knowing anything, should conceal it as well as she can." ( )

I got this from spotify and did not realize it was the abridged version. It was still Anna Massey reading it, which was great, but talk about speeding through the story. So 1 star off for it being abridged, even though it's totally my fault for not noticing.

"Oh! It is only a novel!" replies the young lady, while she lays down her book with affected indifference, or momentary shame. "It is only Cecilia, or Camilla, or Belinda"; or, in short, only some work in which the greatest powers of the mind are displayed, in which the most thorough knowledge of human nature, the happiest delineation of its varieties, the liveliest effusions of wit and humour, are conveyed to the world in the best-chosen language.
Friendship is certainly the finest balm for the pangs of disappointed love.
...but while I have Udolpho to read, I feel as if nobody could make me miserable.
Young people do not like to be always thwarted.
Give me but a little cheerful company, let me only have the company of the people I love, let me be where I like and with whom I like, and the devil may take the rest
