Review: Northanger Abbey

Northanger AbbeyNorthanger Abbey by Jane Austen

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A delightful satire on gothic romance, full of of wit and love for the genre – for only a connoisseur would know its tropes, merits and flaws so well as to construct such a tale. I know some will not agree, but I would venture to say that Northanger Abbey did for gothic what The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy did for sci-fi, or Young Frankenstein for the horror/Hammer movie.
