Northanger Abbey (Barnes & Noble classics)

Northanger Abbey - Jane Austen, Alfred Mac Adam Hard to go wrong with Jane Austen, but this reread of the novel confirms its place as my least favorite. Austen is mocking the gothic romance novels of her time, and she does so with usual biting humor and wit. However, it gets old and predictable (like the novels she is satirizing) because it lacks her original touches.
