The Book Club book

Northanger Abbey is the first novel by Jane Austen, one of Britain's most loved novelists. Catherine Morland, seventeen, has left her village for the first time and is living in the town of Bath.   She goes to dances, the theatre, and talks to her new friends Isabella Thorpe and Eleanor Tilney, who lives at Northanger Abbey and has a rather attractive brother... Catherine learns some lessons about life - about friends, about money, and of course, about love.  

Geoff says:

"This is Jane Austen's first novel.  Our heroine loves books and is always reading the scary popular "gothic" stories of the time - which makes for many funny moments.  We read the original text of Northanger Abbey, which is relatively short (approx 77000 words)."
