Title: Northanger Abbey
Author: Jane Austen
First published: 1818
Every true Janeite would agree with me that all the seasons are absolutely perfect for reading whichever book by Jane Austen, but Northanger Abbey is certainly the best suited for autumn of them all. You will find yourself at the edge of your seat - anxciously waiting to see whether it will rain or not, so that Catherine could go for a walk with the dashing Mr. Tilney. You will be warmed every time they would find an opportunity to dance and converse with each other. You will find yourself wrapped in the thick atmosphere of a dilapidating abbey, fascinated and deliciously scared while waiting for something terryfing and adventurous to happen. Jane Austen will give you all that, and before you know it, you will be swooning with romance, lost in frightening fantasies, and entangled in other people's intrigues as much as Catherine herself...
“I leave it to be settled, by whomsoever it may concern, whether the tendency of this work be altogether to recommend parental tyranny, or reward filial disobedience.”
