Northanger Abbey Press Reviews
This new edition is a wonderful way to appeal to younger readers, with bold colours and a striking illustration which really captures the period and style of the works, yet in a youthful manner. -Ellen Orange, Reviewer (NetGalley) This edition of a well loved and yet underappreciated Jane Austen Classic, is fabulous! I cannot even tell how many times I have re-read this beloved classic from my favorite Jane Austen. I love this edition cover and I believe that this will bring in a lot of the young adults and young readers to this story of our lovely heroine, Catherine Morland. This wonderful book about is a coming-of-age story of about Catherine who is from a very large household - 1 of 10 children. Catherine is a true heroine and I love her character so much - who is devoted to devouring her gothic novels, a tomboy, a positive disposition with a hint of sarcasm in her sense of humor. It was a true delight to revisit this book again, like seeing an old friend. - Michelle Jocson, Reviewer (NetGalley) We all know and love Jane Austen, but this beautiful new cover makes reading Northanger Abbey a pleasure once more. What I love about this classical story is how it speaks tongue-in-cheek about the Gothic writing style which had always been steeped in melodrama. Here Austen describes an average girl's life., someone so unlikely to be considered a heroine, but still commands the narrative of her own story. It is a product of its time, but at the same time still gives us the reminder that WE are the heroines of our own story. Don't let anybody else write it for you. -Liv Burgos, Reviewer (NetGalley)
