it was ok

It pains me to give Jane Austen anything below three stars, but it must be done. Northanger Abbey was silly, one-dimensional, and downright boring. Austen's prose kept my interest, but the story and characters were uninspiring. Austen's greatest charm is creating strong female protagonists that we all want to emulate, but Catherine was unremarkable, especially when compared to her beau.
