Jane Austen “Northanger Abbey”

The main heroine of this novel is Catherine Morland, a 17-year-old girl who is fond of reading novels and who is dreaming of experiencing some love affair. She was invited to visit her aunt and uncle and spend a season in Bath, England. There the young heroine enjoyed visiting balls, theatres and other entertainments. She got acquainted with a young man and made friends with his sister. Her new acquaintances invited her to spend some time (it was about three month!!!!) in their abbey. Catherine had to undergo severe trials throughout the novel. But in the end she was awarded for all the unfairness and troubles.
The book is very easy to read. The author uses many stylistic devices and you will also enjoy reading numerable comic situations and satirical dialogues.
