Description of this Electronic Book

To coincide with the launch of The Austen Project an ebook collection of Jane Austen's timeless novels.
'Northanger Abbey! These were thrilling words, and wound up Catherine's feelings to the highest point of ecstasy.'
Considered the most light-hearted and satirical of Austen's novels, Northanger Abbey tells the story of an unlikely young heroine Catherine Morland. While staying in Bath, Catherine meets Henry Tilney and his sister Eleanor who invite her to their family estate, Northanger Abbey. A fan of Gothic Romance novels, naive Catherine is soon letting her imagination run wild in the atmospheric abbey.
A coming-of-age novel, Austen expertly parodies the Gothic romance novels of her time and reveals much about her unsentimental view of love and marriage in the eighteenth century.

NZ Review 'My favourite writer is Jane Austen and I've read all her books so many times I've lost count' J K Rowling
Thanks to her sharp wit and strong female characters, Jane Austen's literature is still utterly relevant ... She's not just a writer, she's a cult, a brand and a cultural touchstone. STYLIST

Jane Austen was born in 1775, in a small village in Hampshire. By 1811 she had become a published novelist with Sense and Sensibility. Pride and Prejudice followed in 1813, Mansfield Park in 1814 and Emma in 1815. She died in 1817, at the age of 41. Her final novel, Persuasion, was published posthumously along with Northanger Abbey shortly after her death.
