Description:

Jane Austen's first novel tells the story of Catherine Morland, the very ideal of a nice girl. But her naïve heroine is also in possession of an overactive imagination, fueled by her obsession with gothic novels. When Catherine meets Henry Tilney, she's instantly smitten. But when she's invited to his home, the sinister Northanger Abbey, she learns not to interpret the world through the pages of lurid thrillers.
