I really liked this book. Catherine's naivete is comical. She has an over active imagination that leads her to make false assumptions about different situations. She believes that things that occur in a Gothic novel also happen in real life. Meanwhile she falls in love with Henry a wealthy clergyman that is clever and smart. A series of events follow and Henry and Catherine are united. There love story is sweet and they do get their happy ending, as all Jane Austen characters do. =)

Tiffany I really liked Northanger Abbey I thought it funny and entertaining. Jane Austen really has a way with words. Catherine's series of blunders in reading too much into situations and assuming that Gothic novels hold truth are comical. I really liked the love story between Henry and Catherine it was sweet.
