Northanger Abbey was SOOO funny! I would love to go out and have a couple drinks with Henry Tilney, what a hoot. Poor Catherine is so naive, she's completely taken in by Isabella who could not be more two-faced and self-serving. Well, with the possible exception of Lady Susan. Might be fun to put Isabella Thorpe and Lady Susan in a room together and watch them try to out-schmooze eachother while planning the other's untimely demise. What a shame Ms. Austen wasn't able to finish Sanditon, I found myself really liking the characters and the setting, the whole idea of the resort town and trying to find tourists to fill the rentals. I am unendingly amazed at the range of situations, characters, and ideas Austen portrayed in all her books. Such a shame so many read her books at a purely surface level, as fluffy romances.
