Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen

Not my favorite Jane Austen book. It feels unfinished and a little rough around the edges. Not being a literary intellectual, many of her jokes relating to Gothic novels went over my head. However, it's a charming story, but not nearly as compelling as her other literary works. If you have never read Jane Austen, don't start here.
