Northanger Abbey Chapters 1 – 3

Well in the spirit of Go Gothic, I’ve started reading Northanger Abbey – just chapters one to three. I’ve forgotten how much I like it. I would say my favourite Austen is Emma, but Northanger Abbey has a really light touch. Here are some quotes I loved …

Her father was a clergyman, without being neglected, or poor, and a very respectable man, though his name was Richard – and he had never been handsome.


Mrs Allen was one of that numerous class of females, whose society can raise no other emotion than surprise at there being any men in the world who could like them well enough to marry them. She had neither beauty, genius, accomplishment, nor manner.

I’m looking forward to reading the rest of the novel.

I haven’t read any Northanger Abbey continuations or prequels – Are there any?

I have seen the latest BBC adaptation though and I really liked it.

I have just read on Austenprose that the reading schedule has changed we  now have longer to read The Mysteries of Udolpho (brilliant!).
